Dear developer! I would like to use the app in English, so I changed it from German to English in the Settings menu. The seting DOES change the main menu to English, and also the main list of foods, but it DOES NOT change the sublists language. For example: I see the following in the main foods in English: - Alcoholic beverages - E-numbers - Vinegar etc. But if I go into any of these, then the sublist will be displayed in german: - Bier - Champagner - Dessertwein, Süß etc. Please help!

English Speakers LISTEN!!! Open the app and skip completely ahead until you see the 3 dots in the top right corner, click it, then click the 5th option down to change the language from German to English. This app is a lifesaver and a time saver as well for me. Thank you so very much to the developers!!!!

It's is available in English indeed. It's German by default so you need to configure the language in the settings. What's not clear is based on what a user should adjust the rating. They should elaborate on that. Appart from that, very nice app.
