Ratings and Reviews
Nothing comes up. Extremely slow
Developer Response ,
I'm very sorry that you couldn't try the Open Food Facts app. As it was featured on live TV recently, we have to deal with a high number of new connexions and that's a bit hard to process for our server.
Can you please retry now?
Thomas, volunteer of the Open Food Facts association.
Scanner works fast and well
The scanner works well and is fast. Great for the French products but not so much for the US. The database needs to grow more.
Does not trip camera for barcode scan
Does not trip consistently the camera for barcode scan. It did once and found my English whole wheat muffins.
Developer Response ,
It took a while 😅, but we just fixed the problem in the last update by completely changing the barcode scanner 🙂. It was also possible to massively accelerate the response speed of the server (thanks to a donation). Can you confirm that it's good for you after updating?
