Needs more info
I like the way they give you helpful information and advice on what to look for when you are purchasing everyday items. I was already doing most of the recommendations. I just wish this app would also list actual items to buy or safe to use (When I scan the product that I already have, it didn’t tell me if the product was on the “safe to use list”). Just a suggestion.
Doesn’t do any good, just tells you to avoid entire classes of products
The app has not been configured for any of the newer phones such as the iPhone 12. They are overrun issues with the buttons making it impossible to hit them with your finger. The back button is completely unresponsive, because it runs into the clock in the upper left-hand corner. Scanning of product will merely result in a generic warning saying avoid this class of product. [Yeah, I know... avoid fragrances. I don’t need an app for that]
