Great app. I just wish there was an option to upload the ingredients from a saved photo on my phone when submitting the ingredients of a new product (just like the option the app offers when scanning), instead of having to take a new photo. Also a cool addition would be if I could see the rating in ALL categories (inhale/swallow/contact/aquatic life) for any product, regardless of its classification. For example I want to know contact risks for a fragrance, not only inhale risks.

Thank you! We'll look into adding the ratings for every category. On the new product page after clicking "upload image", the app should ask for an upload source and allow users to select the camera, gallery, or other source. Hopefully that helps, in the meantime we'll treat this as a bug and look into it and see if we can resolve it. Thanks again.

Very useful and just what I was looking for, a bit too many options like I'm cool with just 1 app for scanning and ingredient and another app for the other features. Marketing law of line extension. The scan barcode option is a bit clunky because you need to put in so much info when some items its not available. Other than that, amazing idea and in glad you produced this

It's good but isn't very user friendly. When you search for a product, the order you type words changes the products that are returned. I.e. when search words are in a different order, some products are not there at all! This makes it very hard to find products!! The contribution section is great, rewards points for adding new products. The database is very limited so seriously needs to be developed!! Add option upload product via URL. Add "sure you want to leave?" button when doing new product.

Those are great suggestions, Thank you. We are currently working on a more user friendly 2.0 version of the app and the rigid search function is something we are addressing. Our database is ever growing and we are trying to input more products as fast as we can, we appreciate any help we can get. Thank you again for the suggestions.
