Works great! Reading the tiny print on food labels to look for something when you're shopping can be a pain, but this app finds and highlights the words so you can see clearly if something you want to avoid is there. The creator is also very kind, which is a nice plus! You can input a suggestion for a word in one of their categories or create your own category. While the number of categories you can have highlighted at once is limited in the free version, the paid price is not that much!

Very responsive on a Galaxy Note 20. The level of customization is impressive and allows you to target your specific dietary concerns; nothing is set until you configure it. Unfortunately, picks up gluten-free as gluten and cocoa butter as dairy butter. These are challenging problems to solve and it is easy to pay attention to where the app is picking up the warnings from (an indicator flashes up when it happens) and double checking yourself. Thank you for your contribution.

We are working on a fix for the 'gluten-free' thing, but as you already mentioned it's a bit of a... challenge to get this really right! Thanks for the constructive criticism! - Jordi

This app is really useful. I am intolerant to so many different food items that shopping has become a nightmare. I was looking for a barcode scanner but this App is far more versatile. I entered my list of ingredients to avoid and now I can scan any product on the shelf in seconds. The app works even when the font of the ingredients is tiny. So simple, yet so effective!
