Ratings and Reviews
Solid info, lovely design
Not sure what the disgruntled reviewer was expecting, but this collection of beautifully designed water footprints for some standard manufactured goods and food provides a valuable perspective we don't usually get. I wish this info was required on food labels! Totally worth my $1.99. Though I am tempted to call it a media collection, rather than an app.
This is a really nice looking app. Typographically, it's one of the nicest looking apps I've seen, which only makes it better for showing off to friends as a great conversation piece.
This "app". consists merely of a lisr of the water required for 33 food items ( which include leather and paper). that's it. No search, no categories, and no reason to buy this app. You can get this information and much more for free on the web. I wonder how much water was used to create this piece of crap.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
