Too many barcodes not found I like the idea of this app but over half of the stuff I've tried scanning it tells me it can't find the product. Maybe cause I'm in Canada? Also, the app isn't exactly super easy to use and there is no help section or instructions. For example, what are these hero points for?

Really good but have suggestions I really like this app. The only thing is, I have a lot of produce and I'd like to categorize then by type using checklist (vegetable, meat, etc). Also, sometimes when I add via barcode, it misidentified. It would be good to have option to say "none of these". Also, for produce without barcode, would be nice to have option to add name like for unidentified barcode items. Finally, would be good to have note section in case we want to note packaging, size
