    This app is really great, however, about half of the products that I scan don’t show up and I have to submit photos of the item to be reviewed. I also wish there was a nut allergy setting, so that I could be alerted if a product had nuts in them. The FDA requires companies to specifically state what nuts are in food products, but it’s harder to tell with certain skincare products, so having this feature would be extremely helpful. Otherwise it’s an extremely helpful app that I would recommend.

    I am so in love with this app!! It has opened up a whole new world for me and made me aware of the harmful ingredients in our everyday products....I’m now on a mission to become as natural as possible. Beware though because once you start using this app you will possess The Knowing, so be ready for it.

    I love and hate this app! It's easy to navigate, and to scan. BUT, is freezing quite often and the main problem, my phone goes hot like crazy and my battery drains quickly... so pitty:(

    I’m enjoying the app. Lots of products and great information. My favorite feature is that the app will show if a product is not allowed to be sold in the EU.

    Seit der Englisch-Integrierung kann ich nichts mehr auf Deutsch lesen. Schade! Fand viele Artikel toll, die auf Englisch sind alte Artikel. Hoffentlich kann ich beim nächsten Update wie gewohnt die App nutzen... Please, please update articles and bring in more products. I have had this app for years in Germany and never had trouble finding drug store products, but ever since this app got changed into this English version, it’s not nearly as good as it was before. And even over the past 3 years nothing has changed... it’s rather disappointing. I have submitted some products and they are nowhere to be found.

    Page is plastered with ads, among others to join them on Instagram. 3 times on the same page is just excessive. Page jumps as ads are loaded, making you miss what you wanted to click on. Lacks more detail on ingredients.

    Don't waste your money. Google play won't reimburse or let me cancel my subscription. This new and updated scanner had nothing in the system. And it only lets me enter information on new cosmetics and not food. Much worse than the previous version and a total waste of funds.

    I'm sure this app is helpful for people who have needs which it supports, but it simply doesn't offer what I'm looking for. I'm a person who has sensitivities to many different food ingredients which are less 'mainstream' due to chronic illness, and I just want a simple checker which can scan and search for those known ingredients I'm sensitive to if I manually input them. As it is in its current form, this is just useless to me. I'm also vegan, but then I still have to read the label anyway...

    Keine schlechte App, allerdings nicht sonderlich vertrauenswürdig da jeder die Infos der Produkte bearbeiten kann. Aber als schnellcheck ungewisser Inhaltsstoffe im Supermarkt potentiell nützlich.

    First of all - this app is the most advanced one and has many products and barcode (way more than other apps) of which you can check many things (cancer producing/fertility harming materials, ingredients, CO2...). The main reason I use the app is for these harming materials. And it works for all kinds of products very well, BUT it totally ignores the packaging of the food... Luckily I live within the EU, so I can send many emails to these businesses requesting a list of package-components by law

    By Nicholas Lane
    I love this app. It has helped me make some very positive and informed decisions about what I put in my body. But....let's take it further. Let's start talking about the packaging of the products. This would make the app invaluable for the future.

  • Recension Mar 17, 2016

    By Asevren
    Hi guys, first of all I love your app, it helpes me a lot in choosing which products to buy. The reason why I've given it only 3 stars is because a lot of products that are on the European market are just not in your database - that could be improved. Another improvement that could be very useful is if we could search the mere ingredients in the app, just like we can search cosmetics, food, childrens toys. It would be great if we could check the ingredient itself, weather if it's "empfehlenswert" or not. Overall, a great idea, very useful app, and hopefuly it's going to get ever better.

    Good idea for an app. 5 stars idea, I'd say. Though I think that in comparison to other apps $5 (CHF 5) to go ad free is too much, especially in regard that people who want to shop ecologically don't want to see commercial spam ads for unecological products all the time. So, I find the pricing slightly abusive. Also I found that most products I wanted to check with this app so far aren't in the database yet, which renders it more of a training tool (you make a habit of checking product details).

    I used this app so much but it turns out it was so wrong. My son is severely lactose intolerant and it states items that contain milk are lactose free!! Perfect example is milk duds. They are shown in the app as lactose free so I gave my son some and he got sick. I read the label of the milk duds and it states it contains milk!!!!! Why would you do this!?!?? Definitely not safe for people with allergies and other health concerns.
  • No reliable detection for palm oil Nov 18, 2018

    By Murliphant
    Great idea, but unfortunately no reliable detection. App does not recognize simple synonyms for palm oil and gives wrong indications („green“ even if the ingredients section clearly lists Isopropyl Palmitate)
