Good Information The information seems good and concise. The app is easy to use and navigate, including a search function. However, text is not as sharp as it could be on the Nexus 7 tablet (not tablet-optimized). Still, text is large enough and easy to read, though a text size option might be helpful to some. Perhaps a favorites function would also be useful. And, although I'm not a vegan, I agree with others that the gross meat background picture should be replaced!
Barcode The app is good, would be Great if it had a barcode scanner that would tell you if its vegetarian / vegen friendly to help out us newbies. There are a few other vegetarian scanners but they have nothing in their database. This could be perfect!!
It's OK, but not sure why product list split. An OK list but several issues: - 1. Why a "vegan list" and an "animal list" - I have to check 2 lists to find out that the item is not listed. All other apps have a single list with a red/green colour code. - 2. It doesn't seem to include any European additive codes e.g. E-numbers. - 3. Vitamin B-12 is listed as always animal-derived. WRONG! (Unless bacteria are animals) - 4. No search function, just scroll scroll scroll. - 5. Information screens are badly formatted and do not align. - 6. Cluttered with redundant information that gets in the way. We already know alligator skin, eggs and leather are animal-derived. Clue is in the name. Actually I might just uninstall.
Not great For a start, not all the information is accurate. Rennet is not only animal derived, it CAN also be mushroom and microbial derived. Also, there's no search option!!! If I'm using the app, I don't know whether to look under plant or animal derived or I wouldn't be using it! Also, a number look up would be good. It doesn't help to know that carmine is not vegetarian if it's just listed as 120.
When can we start scanning on Android? I would love to see someone develop a fully functional version that allows scanning barcodes on Android. Let's take down the multinationals that are feeding us dead animals!!
App is currently unusable As of recently, when I try scrolling the text blurs and the screen starts bugging out, preventing me from scrolling or reading. Also, there are quite a few ingredients listed that say "always animal derived" when I know that isn't the case. I said that in an older review but I still don't see any changes.
Added a menu that with options to search on or filter the list of animal ingredients.
