Really love what this app is trying to do
But the scanner option hasn’t worked for me once while shopping - which was a big part of its draw. The scanner immediately captures the barcode image without focusing and then freezes while processing. Even when you search by brand name, it seems like EWG has a long way to go as far as getting more brands cataloged into their system- a lot of searches (even well known brands) come up with nothing. Fingers crossed they’re working on updates to make this app as useful and easy as it can be so more consumers utilize it and brands continue to become more accountable.
Very Helpful App
I came across this app fairly recently, but I think it’s been pretty helpful so far. I like that each ingredient is broken down for each listed product. I’ve submitted a few of my regularly used products because they weren’t on the list. I’m guessing that the people that research and verify product info are continually working to expand it’s reviewed products, at least I hope so. I’ve also been coming around supposed “non-toxic/chemical-free/eco-friendly” products that I’d like to check out, but their listing isn’t in this database. I think it could be a little more organized with how to search and find products, but overall I’m really liking it so far and plan to use it to help me find safe alternatives to my typical products.
App crashes, can’t find the products I search for
I love the idea of this app, but the reality of it is far below what it needs to be to be helpful or useful. They have broadened their catalog a bit over the last few years, but even now many well-known brands can’t be found. The app frequently crashes when I try to drill down and see the research on a specific ingredient. I have also never had the scanner work when I’m shopping. Whether it’s over Wi-Fi or using data, literally not once in a store have I have the scanner work. And it only works about 50% of the time when I’m home. I would love for this to be the product that I’m sure the creators dreamed it would be, but it’s just not there yet. Not terribly useful. 🤷🏻♀️
