What's New in Version 3.1.4
Many minor tweaks to make Buycott easier for everyone to use.
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.
What an awesome app! I'm so glad I found this- it's an easy way to make a difference without spending your whole life on Google! If there is a cause you really care about, or a few, this makes it easy to make sure you're shopping choices aren't conflicting with your cause. If they are you can easily send a message to the company. It will also tell you if a company supports your cause and you can tell them that as well- great way to easily give companies feedback, good or bad. This little app could make a big difference.
Very Good App
This language popped up when I went to do the review. It does though state my beliefs and cynicism exactly. So, I'm a cynic and very distrustful of large for profit corporations that I believe will do ANYTHING.... REPEAT ANYTHING...to make money. I therefore was looking for an app to help me make purchases from companies that I either agree with or at least I don't oppose. This app is the best I've found to allow me to check products and companies before I buy. I use this app every time I shop. It's quick and easy and I recommend it.
