Good App, Needs Work. Good app, I like the features it does have, but I agree with others that some valuable ones are missing. It definitely needs to have to option to set a best before date and to be able to mark an item opened. Colour highlighting for close to expire items would be great too, especially different colors for say a week, a fortnight and a month. The option to edit an item once submitted and replace barcodes that have the wrong item listed is also important.

could be Great This is a great Idea, with a few tweaks. It has not been updated since 2013, are you still working on this? The potential for this app is fantastic!!

Minimal, hardly convenient Why do all of the food management apps seem like class projects? Ugly, bad ui, and all of about three features. Hardly any more convenient than a text file.

Seriously? I added all my items from my fridge and freezer and it came up with 0 results for recipes. I have been a chef for literally ten years and zero results from over three dozen items is ridiculous. I thought this would save my wife some time to make stuff while I was at work but I guess not.

Scanner worked okay I didn't have huge issues with the scanner. I did not like the set up. You have to set an expiry date- for each item (it will do it on its own, but it seemed to be a week away that way). You also have to scan each item. I couldn't find a way to scan a can and just hit I have 3 of that item. If I had less stuff, I may try it again, it just doesn't work easily for having multiple items.
