What's New in Version 2.0.2
- Bug fixes
Love it, excited for app expansion
Pros: This app is great, it has motivated me to be more conscious of the products I'm using, the companies I'm supporting and the entire health of my body and household.
Room for improvement: The app could be improved by having a system to find products that are better rated, or at least having master lists of suggested "clean" products. While it may be biased of them to suggest certain brands, I'm having trouble replacing products that have been proved unsafe or "dirty" after I've scanned them. A lot of the products at my local health store deemed "natural/organic/vegan" are still rating quite highly because of fragrance etc and it's not easy to find alternatives. Still, this app is a step in the right direction and it's helped me immensely.
Great info but very limited
I'm surprised to find that many products I use on a daily basis are not particularly safe. It has allowed me to understand why my allergy triggers sometimes after applying makeup. It is great to have the ability to scan an item's barcode to know what is inside the formulation prior to making a final purchase. I love looking at the healthy recommended products and I'm slowly gravitating towards them.
I would like to see more expansion and extensive products in the app. (Maybe some foreign brands/products too!) Would also recommend if users are able to search ingredients directly. A faster server would definitely help with the delay when waiting for a product's information to load. I am looking forward to seeing the app's growth! 😊
Very Informative Love Concept
Love the concept of this app, opens our eyes to all the harmful chemicals we unknowingly put in our bodies in the everyday products we use with the hope of making ourselves better, would have given it 5 stars if it wasn't for all the glitches I've run into trying to add products to the data base ( which seems like there's a lot missing in a half hour use I had 5 out of 10 products not in the database) I'm using the iPhone 6s don't know if the problem is specific to my phone or the app is still very new but will continue to use nonetheless as the information I've gotten from it outweighs any hassle... Please continue to update database of products and fix glitches, you're on to something great here.
