Does't seem to work with my current phone. I can't get the scanner to work, maybe it's my phone, I don't know. Even when I search by product it comes up with nothing, even for products I know are affiliated with Monsato.(the company I really want to boycott).
Much Better than 'Boycott SOPA' App this is an efficient and responsive app that seems to cover more boycott initiatives against sopa-related legislation than the older 'boycott sopa' app. it covers pipa, sopa, ndaa, protect-ip and more. as it stands currently, this is the 'boycott app' to go with. also, 'deb' clearly doesn't understand how the program works. when you scan a product which does NOT come from a source associated with sopa, pipa, ndaa etc... the app will tell you that 'there are no boycotts' of THAT PARTICULAR PRODUCT. when you scan a product which comes from a source associated with the aforementioned legislative initiatives, it will clearly tell you that the product is being boycotted and list the reasons why.
It actually works. I used it on a few household items. At first it didn't seem to work but then I read other peoples reviews and realised the product was ok. Then I typed in Monsanto and I got a boycott hit, not as many as there should be though. I did notice that on one of my queries that there was an option to add a boycott..does anyone know if that is added to everyones data base or just personal? If it goes to everyone then it seems the database will grow with more users. However I wanted to add one to Monsanto and I didn't see an option maybe because it already had 1 hit. I will keep it and see what happens. March against Monsanto May 25th..300+ events everywhere! This is what I wanted to add. It is a large event..large! So I felt it should be on the database. Maybe that is my error in thought?
Love It! Unlike most people here, I want to support Libertarians, Conservatives, and avoid Liberal support groups. Your App helps both political types. Thanks for freedom of choice.
Could be great but the range of "Offences" that you can buycott out of the box is severely limited. I don't want to do all the research and additions myself. For example .. How about BSD movement or koch industries?
I'm IN LOVE! This is one of my favorite apps. I love the idea behind the app and that citizens interested in holding corporations accountable can add information via the app or online from the site. Thank you, thank you, million times, THANK YOU! MUAH!
