Feels like I’m shopping with Bobby
I am constantly opening my Bobby approved app when I’m in the grocery store or one of my parents buys something that looks like it’s probably not good. The app is very user friendly and you can navigate easily. One things that has shown me some problems is the search feature, that can be tricky sometimes when looking for something and it doesn’t show up but then you delete the search and it shows up under brands and then it works. Overall experience is worth 5+ stars. So many great deals on there like seed that I got turned onto from Bobby and especially thieve market. Worth a download and go scan everything in your house haha because you will be surprised to see what is harmful. I think I can proudly say everything that I use like food items or personal care products or even soaps and detergents are completely Bobby approved thanks to the app and Bobby teaching you what is worthy of being in your body and what to always avoid. THANK YOU Bobby for your amazing app and hard work and please continue to do what you do. You have inspired me to be just like you one day when I grow up and now going to studying public health at college!
Oh my greatness! I’m in love with the app! It takes away the concern from purchasing something with questionable ingredients! Now I wish products had UPC codes on front of the packages😋 I had been purchasing a butter alternative that was not Bobby approved but with the apps help I have found another option. I did find and item that had not been uploaded so I sent pictures of the product and ingredients in but felt guilty knowing Bobby would to stay up and research the product. It just shows the dedication and love of what he represents. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and family with us. The people with negative reviews apparently aren’t aware Bobby stated it’s a work in progress and he is trying to add and evolve the app but it takes time. Rome wasn’t built in a day🤦♀️and in no way does anyone have to adhere to his Keto lifestyle he offers so much useful information along with what he has chosen for himself. Take away what is useful for yourself or move along to something else. Just make the app icon Rose❣️
This app is approved!
I was a skeptic at first to download the Bobby approved app on my phone. I didn’t want to give up any of my favorite delicious, canoily junk foods. I didn’t want to make any changes to my diet (even though I really needed to). However I made the plunge to download the app. Honestly, I was so impressed on how easy it was to use the Bobby approved app. When scanning a product, the app basically tells you, “It’s crap, your better off without it, move on” or, it tells you “go ahead, it’s Bobby approved go ahead, enjoy”. This app makes it okay for you to still enjoy your favorite foods with modified choices for the greater good of your health! I’ve been vegan for 7 years and I’ve gone back and forth from junk food vegan to plant based vegan. This app literally is my saving grace, the medium between health and happiness! This app works super well in mostly any store. I use it every week in Trader Joe’s hoping I see the thumbs up sign on new products and my favorite foods!!
