About this app

Best Before is designed to save you food and money.

An average family of four currently tosses out an estimated $590 (£373) of wasted food per year! (UA Bureau of Applied Research in Anthropology). Not only that, it has serious environmental implications too!

I designed Best Before to track when your food goes off and to alert you before this happens so you can use it before it's too late. Using your smartphone's camera it is possible to scan the barcode of a product and add it to a list of food you have. Keep track of what's in your fridge, cupboard or anywhere else!

Features:
# Automatic Name Discovery - scan the barcode and the app will try and find the product name. If the name isn't found, you can set the name and the app will know for next time.
# Notifications - you can set a time to be notified when food is expiring each day.
# Sync - lists and foods are synced between your devices.
# Custom Lists - lists can be created, renamed and deleted to help you organise.

If you have any feature requests, comments or queries please do not hesitate to contact me!

Notifications no longer working after update. If you swipe right on an item you delete it. There is a short undo period so if you accidentally swipe and dont notice there is no way to retrieve deleted items. The app worked before the update.

UPDATE: Notifications should be working again now, sorry for the inconvenience. Hi Patrick. Sorry to hear you're having issues, i'll investigate the notifications bug ASAP. The swipe to delete functionality has been improved to show the undo rather than simply removing the item, i'll investigate extending the undo timeout.

Not too happy with this app. There is much to improve. Such apps should have a quantity field When a person buys quantity 24 of the same item, they have to be entered one by one especially when Barcode is not recognized. This App should have the facility to enter quantities.

Thanks for your feedback! I received your feedback just as I was finishing up the quantity functionality. The release is now live and should be available on your device shortly. Give it a go and let me know your thoughts! :)

Useless. I tell it I have 12 Oxo cubes and it makes 12 entries for them instead of one entry with a quantity of 12. I can't even get a refund because it 'not supported by Google Play policy'

Hi Jacqi. Sorry to hear you're experiencing issues using the app. The quantity feature was added to create multiple products and allow them to have different use by dates, sorry about that. All apps on Google Play adhere to the 48 hour refund policy, however I would be happy to refund you. Please email me support@bestbeforeapp.com. Thanks, Luke.
