Not tailored at all. Lots of suggestions for kids when I said I don't have kids. All the disorganized suggestions make it feel overwhelming. Needs more simplification. Group the suggestions better. Make suggestions more concrete and easy to do. Deduplicate recommendations. Keep up the good work. I tried using the app once before but gave up. Trying again. It's a good cause. Just need to improve the message and presentation.

This app is very informative (synthesizing big science into small statements), good links (ideally a list of them), and encouraging, pleasant interface. My kids like earning badges with me and finding them. I haven't used it to scan products, but as a tool to identify areas that need attention, it is very helpful. As an intro to the areas of concern and safer alternatives, it is very helpful. Grateful that this leading institution is making a simple tool for everyday use - thank you!!!

Hi Silent Spring Institute, I'm very grateful to you for providing so much info for free! The app contains a lot of useful info regarding pollutants of various kinds in everyday life. However, the app has some technical issues - often I just get the loading screen and the app stops working. Also, the "DIY area" mentioned sometimes is non-existent, or I can't find it. I heard about the app from the book "Countdown" by Swan.
