BuyPartisan works like a nutritional label for your political values. Simply use your phone to scan a product's barcode, or just search by individual company or product, and you can quickly see the political contributions of each company's CEO, Board of Directors, political action committees and employees. Simply put, BuyPartisan empowers consumers with awareness of the true impact of the campaign spending by the companies behind the products we all buy every day.

Excruciatingly Slow & Tedious
I was hoping for lists of companies, perhaps sorted by category or industry, grouped by liberal or conservative, or maybe one list with a bar chart next to each name for a quick summary of its leanings, if any. Then we could click on the name for more details.
Instead, you have to enter each product, one at a time. Can you imagine standing in the supermarket aisle with your tired & cranky kids, entering each product, one by one by one? Yippee!!! (NOT)!!!
Hope you're retired & have no other interests in life! You'll need all that extra time to use this app!
Great potential, but...
I hate to do this because I love the idea of this app, but wow, does this have some bugs to work out. Scanner rarely works and, as others have said, it crashes CONSTANTLY.
Please improve this app. It's a 5-star idea...and I'll be happy to revise my rating, but yeah. You have a lot of work to do.
App Crashes every time
App crashes every time you try and search a Company so I can't even tell you if it's a good app or if it even works for that matter. In theory It's a great idea but the app needs to work to first to be rated! Don't waist your time until they fix it!
