Will there be a new update soon?
I was suggested to use this by my dermatologist after doing patch testing that tested for my skin allergies. They helped me upload all results to my account. I noticed that the app hasn’t been updated in 4 years. It’s screen ratio isn’t even set up for recent iPhones as it doesn’t take up the whole screen. I’ve been on the actual website and it looks great there, but you can’t scan barcodes from there. I am really looking forward to an update for this app before it goes out of compatibility for a new iOS. It would also be nice to see on the app itself if a product is actually safe for me or not like it shows on the website. Currently, it shows the ingredients and other safety factors but does not show the icon that specifically says safe or not safe for me. I told my dermatologist that the app has not been updated in 4 years and there’s a chance it will stop being compatible with new phones on a new iOS. I hope that there’s an update before that.
The extent of filtering for products is shown in one of the screenshots, and can be seen on the skinsafe website. They are broad swaths of general categories. My patch testing from years ago indicated allergies to specific chemicals that can be used for multiple purposes in a wide variety of products. Which of the “common allergens” do carba mix components (rubber accelerator chemicals frequently found in personal care products, with various names like Iodopropynyl butylcarbamate) fall under? You can’t filter for specific ingredients and their aliases or related chemicals, so the app over simplifie, resulting in either limiting your products too much, or completely missing allergens, or risking missed allergens because we can’t tell what is actually included.
When my patch test finally revealed what’s been irritating me, I was so relieved. And they said there is an app I can use since some of the things are mixtures and are also long, hard-to-remember chemical names. But this app is designed absolutely terribly. It is so disappointing and frustrating because it really is critical for me and I don’t know of any other tool. That data itself is decent and rather extensive but the interface is horrible. It is over-complicated, cannot navigate in an intuitive manner, have to basically hack your way into getting it to work as i need it to. I don’t know who they geared this to when they designed it (patients or practitioners), but the app is not user-friendly for either. The website isn’t much better, sadly. And even if it were, the use case for this tool should primarily be mobile (you check items as you are shopping, etc). Extremely disappointed.
