Ratings and Reviews
A good resource for information but needs major work!
I starting using this application fairly recently and while I admit some of the things that i purchase are less than mainstream, I have been diligent in adding as much as i can to fill the database Buycott uses for the good of all of us. What annoys me are the constant app crashes (10 times in the last two days, usually while I am trying to submit a review for a product), and the scanner going crazy (trying to scan a product 10+ times in a row rapidly without pulling anything up, like it seizes up pulling an entry from the database and so just keeps trying to scan with the same results). I really do want to keep my buying power away from certain corporations and keep it moving towards better causes, and this would be a whole lot easier without the glitches. Overall, 3 out of 5 for in-depth data on corporations and corp. trees but you have to fix it before I give it anything higher.
Good idea but too political
There is very little choice where I live but I like the idea of a organic user created database(if that’s what it and not yet another illusion). Disappointed in it’s obvious political orientation as any intelligent person would not believe we have a choice in partisan politics or really in anything; wish there was a way to buycott the federal reserve and if they want to make their app about politics and social justice they should start by explaining the banking system, fiat currencies, and those who control it(the same people that control the media, our food, and everything else). But all we can do is vote with our dollar; and for that the app gets 3 stars, but I wish it got 5. leave the stupid politics out of it; quit trying to control people ; it exposes you as a part of the problem disguised as the solution.
Money = Votes
Do you feel powerless due to politicians not representing us anymore? Do you feel like companies with lobbyists have a louder voice in important decision making than we the people do? Then vote with your money. Companies hear money (or lack of) more clearly than they do the vocal concerns of the public. This app allows you to know which companies are profiting from your grocery store or product purchases. Buycott give you the power to make informed purchasing decisions. Vote with your dollar, help the companies who care with your hard earned money. And remember that we are all in this together.
