I have scanned Johnsons baby products a few top of the line deodorants and 3 brands of shampoo NONE of them came up with info?... is this app made for Australia or is it for a another country? Epic fail for me
I love the concept of this app, but it really isn't functional. About 80-90% of the products I've scanned aren't in the database, and these are just common shampoos and facial products from the grocery store or pharmacy. It looks like the app was developed then abandoned.
The app is great.. when it works... which isn't often. Most of the products I try and scan are not recognised, whenever I try and type in the search bar every letter I type it's constantly searching, this is very annoying, just let me finish typing. All in all I find it a great effort using this app
Awesome UI, it's a shame it *literally* recognizes nothing. The only thing it hit on was a Neutrogena Body Spray. That's it. Hoping that they expand the database because this app has so much potential!!
The app found many of my major brand cosmetics (shampoo, face wash, etc.) on first try! It did what I wanted, which was to quickly tell me which ingredients are harmful and why. The app gives very poor ratings to products that contain ingredients like parabens or "fragrance" (which, it explains, could mean a whole host of things). It rated all my cosmetics terribly, as I expected, because even if they don't have parabens they include "fragrance." Tried another app that was rated more highly and this app contained many products that the other didn't.
This app allowed me to understand what was in my shampoo, conditioner, and even other household products. Even if they did have the brand I used the app allows you to recognize the chemical terms so when you check you products at home you can check if you products have the chemical listed. I love the app and have done a tutorial on my facebook page, told all my natural hair friends and family. This is and will be very useful.
