About this app

My Food Rescue helps you combat food waste: scan barcodes on food packaging to learn if food is still edible and how to rescue it from spoiling. Available in English and German.

With this app, you learn about storage times, storage tips, spoilage symptoms, edibility assessment tips and health hazards simply by pointing your device camera on food packaging.

This is a usable but early version. There might be errors in the content and software. Use at your own risk. And we'd love to hear your feedback to inform further development!

Current features:

* Scan a barcode to view storage life and food safety information associated with a product. Works for about half of typical European supermarket products.
* If the barcode does not scan, you can enter the barcode number manually.
* If the barcode is not known, you can also search for a food category to see associated food rescue knowledge. Auto-complete helps you with that.
* Fully translated to English and German.
* Fully offline software. Works without Internet, does not send data anywhere.
* No advertisements, no tracking, no nothing.
* Open source software. You're free to modify and re-distribute it as you like.
* Cross-platform. You can also use it under iOS, Windows, Linux, macOS etc..
