Reviews From google play store

Absolutely fantastic app in theory, if only it would work! It keeps crashing, loading times are abysmal, and sometimes it just never stops searching. Please fix these issues, I want this to be a 5 star app!!

Very good and loads of products are on the app - only a few products are not available (yet?)

Knows a lot of products and gives me a perfect overview of now only what's inside, but also what might be problematic. Love it.

Scanned 5 products, no data for any of them.

used to be great but now can't even log in anymore to change my parameters

Amazing! Extremely important to know what we eat or apply on our skin! ❤️ I would only want to see more information about ingredients. 😊

Best independent app in this category. I consider buying ad free if I keep using it. Please add package rating and/or info on plasticiser (Weichmacher) in products and their packaging. Plasticisers from packaging can be attested in food, so it's important to choose products without them. Could also warn if a product is "overpacked" in plastic packaging. Would be cool if I could choose warnings for certain things like pig/cattle ingredients and things I'm allergic to (custom warnings).

I found it to be utterly useless. It takes ages and heaps of negotiating around ads and create account here and there before you can actually scan something. Then, when you finally get to scan something it simply takes you to the company's website and you can ask them what their product contains or the product is not in the database at all. None of what I expected and what I was told to expect.

Completely useless...I installed this app expecting to get some more info on the products I use. Unfortunately I'm stuck on endlessly loading tabs. The app crashed as soon as I tried to scan a product. Although allowing access to my Google info, location and camera, non of the functions are loading. I sincerely hope this is a problem with the build of the app that could be resolved in an update.

Best app ever! So useful and user-friendly :)

Okay, on second install it worked. In order to get four stars and up, you need to provide a login process without being forced to use Google or Facebook.

Not impressed - I scanned something that had milk in and it claimed it was vegan!

Wonderful App, useful in so many ways ! Especially for the ones who understand the importance of body care and invironment. Congratulations to the team.

A great start to easing the search for potential allergies. A few additional allergy potentials to add would be different nut allergies like coconut, hazelnuts, peanuts, etc.

Does not show content anywhere, login skipping freezes the app. scanning works, as does showing information about the scanned product, but that takes a long while to load sometimes.

Great..but would be better if you have some offline info also...because inside stores there might be not good internet connectivity and i dont want to log into the stores wifi

Most valueable shopping assistant ever <3 Radically changed my consumption habits - and never would go back. Hope there will be a whole lot more brands choosing healthy and sustainable ingredients!

It's amazing that you can just scan products to see what ingredients they have. Absoutely love this app, 10/10 would recommend!

I can't image now the life without this app. I scan everything which I buy. Just now I can see how many bad products I was buying.

Getting used to it.. Tend to forget using it in the shops but it's good to prove my choices as a job well done

Very useful and fast, crashes in the latest version from time to time on my Android device

Easily understandable explantions of effects certain (toxic) ingredients have on your body and the environment. Love this app!

Perfect - does its job well!

NOT free... when you have to pay $7 to activate the app, that is definitely not free

Never thought it would be working that well. Amazing app! And super reliable!

Amazing app to check your products

No iodine setting and error loading settings. Uninstalled. Easy to read and tutorial included.

What we all need! Awesome app.

The most helpful app ever. If you're interested in your health or the environment please use this app!

Easy and informativ!

I can check everything and I decide if I want to buy it or not. Thanks for the help. Keep going on with the good work

Excellent when it works. Since an update ?last year, when I scan a product or search for one, it tells me that the 'product is not found. Even though the picture and title is displayed. Tried few times to reinstall the App but this unfortunately has not helped. I loved using it when it worked and still try to look for new advertised products, to see if they are worth buying or not.

Great help to decide which are the right products to buy: healthy and environmentally friendly!

I'm sure this app is helpful for people who have needs which it supports, but it simply doesn't offer what I'm looking for. I'm a person who has sensitivities to many different food ingredients which are less 'mainstream' due to chronic illness, and I just want a simple checker which can scan and search for those known ingredients I'm sensitive to if I manually input them. As it is in its current form, this is just useless to me. I'm also vegan, but then I still have to read the label anyway...

Product listed as "suitable" (green) but list of ingredients shows two red including one hormonally active and one orange??

Weak database. Downloaded this and a couple similar apps. CodeCheck runs pretty smoothly and seems like it has a lot of customizable options. However it didn't identify any of several hygiene product barcodes I scanned. Scanned them in another app and they came up no problem. might as well just use the app that actually works...

Very interesting app. There is so much about food and other consumer goods that we do not know or realise, so the app is a practical tool for the concerned consumer.

Lagging and is slow

I really love code check. I can check ingredients easily by just scanning the code, make the results personal based on what elements and factors are important to me, like vegan or vegetarian options. I like also that they offer alternatives. And some of those articles are also a great read with some interesting information. Thumps up!! 👍🏾

Extremely helpful - this app enabled me to find silicone-free products and avoid micro plastics without spending an hour in the grocery store reading and comparing ingredient lists.

it safes me increadible amojmts of time and the database is very good

Good idea for an app. 5 stars idea, I'd say. Though I think that in comparison to other apps $5 (CHF 5) to go ad free is too much, especially in regard that people who want to shop ecologically don't want to see commercial spam ads for unecological products all the time. So, I find the pricing slightly abusive. Also I found that most products I wanted to check with this app so far aren't in the database yet, which renders it more of a training tool (you make a habit of checking product details).

I used this app so much but it turns out it was so wrong. My son is severely lactose intolerant and it states items that contain milk are lactose free!! Perfect example is milk duds. They are shown in the app as lactose free so I gave my son some and he got sick. I read the label of the milk duds and it states it contains milk!!!!! Why would you do this!?!?? Definitely not safe for people with allergies and other health concerns.

Provides very useful information on product ingredients with an easy to understand color scale. Unfortunately, the app is full of ads and bloated with useless other content. The performance is bad, content takes long too load. I was unable to access my scan history for several days and could not figure out why.

Very interesting.....when working! It's really difficult to rate this app. When it's up and running the information is clear and comprehensive. Unfortunately, I have huge problems getting it to work and it continually cuts out :-( Frustrating and (because of it's potential) disappointing

I love this app already and just got it today! I scaned some skincare items I had and it gave me the ingredients that it held. Plus they give you a description of what the ingredients are and if there bad for you or the environment. I REALLY recommend you get this app if your wanting an easier way to become vegan or vegetarian!

i really love this! before i was just buying what i thought could be good and now i see it's actually not. the THE PROBLEM: the app was updated and now i can't use it anymore. when i open the app it breaks down instantly. PLEASE change that!!!!!

Awesome, awesome App!!!!! if a product is not already in their database you can scan it, take a picture with the ingredients and it immediately tells you which ones are of concern along with more details about each ingredient! Fantastic!!!!

It is nice to know how bad some products are.

On the right path but not exactly there. I am looking for an app I can use to help with ingredients that I want to avoid. I do like the option to avoid gluten and nano particles etc. I also want to be able to select specific ingredients. Example: Almonds. To be able to set the app to look for this in food and skincare products. Another Example: Petrochemicals To set the app for avoiding this category of ingredients.

easy to use, just scan the barcode, no permanent permissions asked(!, yes it exists :), only downturn: when i use the back button on my phone i am getting out of a whole process i was just in, not just one step back.. but i am also new to the app..

I really love being able to check the products I own and the ones I buy and make better choices regarding that . I really like how the ingredients are classified and the unsafe ones are highlighted since I am not very familiar with the terminology . I also find it great that you can read detailed information on the ingredients .

Very helpful! Tells how much sugar is in an item and if you're vegan, vegetarian, or if you can't have lactose, gluten then this app can help filter out those items and can help you stay healthy. (Lol sry I don't usually write reviews but this app is rlly good)

User friendly and lots of info. The app I use a lot!

App in itself works well and is helpful and I get that somehow you have to make money, but 22 implemented trackers seems a little excessive. Now there's notifications with ads, which is a nogo and made me finally uninstall.

Does not contain every product all the time, but the scanning function helps to broaden the database. Very helpful information on products and the newsletter keeps you updated on good health/lifestyle tips & tricks!

Love this app. Makes shopping for the right products much easier and hours of research unnecessary. It's really easy to use and fast too. Thank you for making this app!

Very useful app to take care if our health and environment. Sometimes does not read the barcode or does not load data but I'm not sure if it's due to connection or app.

It used to be a life saver. Now, however, nothing works! NOTHING that I scan is in the database! Even stuff that I've seen there before! I want the old CodeCheck back! I NEED it! AAAAAGH!!!

This app changed my life. I don't know how I lived before, but now it's much healtyer for sure. Thank you for all. One hint for improvement. I wold like to have same scale for food as for cosmetics, ingedient by ingedient. Not just suggar, fat and salt. Everything is so great. I recommend it to all. :)

just learning how to use app; took few photos to add to their database. used scanner to find out about gluten free products, a bit confusing but remember, I am new to app and need to learn how to better use it.

Great app! Helped me alot! I hope that you could also make a list to Viggies customers code scan plz!

I can finally know what I eat! alsout is very fast & easy. Brilliant conceptand stellar execution.

For me it's a helpful App. At the moment I am very interested in living a healthy lifestyle. This app is a great little helper to accomplish this. Thanks for putting this out for free 😊

As soon as I first opened it my phone froze and I couldn't do anything at all, it restarted by itself. Doesn't work, there's something weird about it, uninstalled.

I love the fact that this kind of app exists. Through this, I have access to expert information about the contents of a huge variety of consumer goods and about how dangerous the ingredients are. It helps me avoid potentially harmful ingredients. To me, that is a big deal.

It's pretty good and informative. It would be nice if there were more options for ingredient filters for those who have allergies or sensitivities.

Helps me make buying decisions better. Saves time. Mostly use it for skincare products and cosmetics. So love this app.

it really helps me finding products without gluten! I can recommend this app especially for people who can't eat gluten, are vegan or eat lactosefree! 😊

the info provided is not bad. look and feel outdated. but the popups constantly asking if i tried the product currently viewing are annoying.

Nice app to check the content of different products. I notice it is mainly for products you can buy in DM.

Unnecessary notifications, wrong information

Very helpful App. Now I I always use it to check all the cosmetics b4 I plan to buy something. Highly recommended App ;)

Really nice way to look through ingredients,and I am very glad it's for free!!

Very nice thing. Use it frequently now. Only thing missing for me: search area where you can also search products

very useful app to better understand what's in the products we use. the ratings are backed by by reliable sources which are always listed

Great app, can easily recognize ingredients off a photo for products not yet in their database.

I find this app very useful. It does what it says and you can even add missing products if you want to.

so much advertising and prompts to buy, it was impossible to use.

Login not working + Favourites not working. I wrote an email about these issues and I never got a response!

It doesn't really work. Worked once with mobile data but afterwards nothing. No recommendation unfortunately.

changed the way I go grocery shopping and the way I buy cosmetic products. If you don't want to read labels, use this app and it automatically highlights the concerning and bad ingredients

Great and usefull! 🙏

The app works fine but because of this app my phone does take ~10min to restart instead of ~30s, because of "optimising app 1/1"

it works, but you are definitely gonna spend more money if you use it, cause the good stuff is expensive

Very helpful in getting a better picture about potential health risks and ingredients in general. Much appreciated.

Getting information about products fast and easy.

If there is a notification that you want to check on it wont open the app at all

No problems, no complaints. I like it its so helpful :)

Amazing app!!! I'm learning information I wish I knew sooner !! Fellow vegan here and this app is a must!!

I just installed it and I really like it so far... the reason why I didn't give 5 stars is because some some products are not on their database

this app is awesome!! now you don't have to second guess if something is good for you or try to memorize the names of harmful chemicals!!!!

I wish I could experience how great this app is, but it crashes second after opening:(

Great info and easy to scan barcodes at the store

Premium feature to remove ads is a bit hidden.

User friendly, comprehensive and very useful

Easy to use, you can even search for products if you don't happen to have them on hand

Awesome app which makes you think about what you buy.

Great app for checking skin and food products!

Seems like there is no way to disable the disturbing notifications. Change this please for more stars.
