A tiny bit of a problem

When it asks to put your postcode then it shows your local authority and I click ‘that’s the one nothing’ happens. Also when I try looking it up manually and click it still nothing happens. Otherwise if it would work it would be a great app with a great use.

I love it

Found this on tiktok, just had to download it as soon as possible. The layout is super clean, easy to use, modern too and very aesthetically pleasing.
The barcode scanner is easy to use, though sometimes I do have a few problems getting it to focus, but that might just be my device. The app overall is a fantastic concept that tells you were you can recycle your plastics or not, and there’s helpful information you can read to.
As an environmental activist with a very busy schedule, this makes me feel like I’m doing so much more for the world day by day and I can safely say I’m a proud user of the Horizon app
Great job!

Hey thank you so much! This is our first review! Will keep me motivated when working on some of the bugs 😁. Appreciate the kind words. Hope to bring some more features to the all soon.

This app will go far!

This is such a simple and great idea for anyone confused about their local recycling rules. As someone who moves a lot I can never keep up to date with which council accepts which materials!

This app is still new but it deserves 5 stars as the general function seems to be working despite the minor errors. For example, I managed to add a second material to a biscuit packet after reloading the app, as it struggled to rescan the barcode two times in a row.

Overall I can see this app going far because of its efficient way of offering information and its rewarding way of encouraging further use with the points.

Thanks!! Just to let you know we’ve fixed the double scanning issue and are working hard to make many more improvements over the next few months 🙌🏽
