Best Before

Best Before


Best Before is designed to save you food and money.

An average family of four currently tosses out an estimated $590(£373) of wasted food per year! (UA Bureau of Applied Research in Anthropology). Not only that, it has serious environmental implications too!

Best Before is an application designed to track when your food goes off and to alert you before this happens so you can use it before it's too late. Using your smartphone's camera it is possible to scan the barcode of a product and add it to a list of food you have. Keep track of what's in your fridge, cupboard or anywhere else!

Features:
# Automatic food name discovery
# Automatic food expiration discovery
# Calculates the average number of days before the item will expire.
# Customise what time to be alerted.
# Customise how many days before the food expires to be alerted.
# Customisable automatic expired food removal if a certain amount of days expired.
# Turn off notifications globally or per item

I designed this application as I am a student and have very little money to waste. I hope it can save you money too, as well as helping to save the environment.

Barcodes never work It works as a great tracker, but I'm lazy and don't want to type in the whole word.

Very handy app! This application has helped me keep track of my groceries. The implementation of the barcode scanner makes this the best app of its type! Check it out!

Nice idea but... ... doesn't work because, here in the UK, most barcodes on products are not identified. So, it's necessary to manually enter product information. Pen and paper is quicker - and free!
