"Try scanning a coke"

It told me to scan a coke instead of the first thing I scanned . I did. Then it told me it couldn't find it.

The good news is it knew everything else I scanned.

Great idea

I told all my friends about this app before I even had a chance to use it and now I’m hoping they’ve had more success than I have. The scanner doesn’t work. I’ve uninstalled the app, updated it, tried everything but whenever I try to scan, the screen is black. It’s like something is blocking the camera but my camera works just fine. I really hope there is a solution to this, I’d love to be able to use this app and tell others about it.

Pretty good when it recognizes a product

Which doesn't seem to be often, I've scanned everything from my parents' GMO junk to my own vegan organic food brands and only a few showed up, like Dr. Bronner's.
