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.

Scanner recognizes nothing I had high hopes for this app. I eagerly began scanning the contents of my freezer. After attempting to scan five items, and having the app recognize none of them, I uninstalled it. Barcode recognition was the primary feature I was looking for, and it seems hopelessly anemic. I would give it another try if the database of items were to become more robust. At this point that's a low bar to hurdle, but if I can't recognize at least 90% of the items I throw at an app, that's a deal-breaker for me.

Really a dissapointment As everyone else said the scanner doesn't work for just about ANYTHING... then on top of that it REQUIRES you to attempt to use the scanner to input anything that's not produce or something.

Not a good app - hard to navigate - does not have features such as pricing for each item.

Nothing scans tons of work Nothing on here really scans. You have to manually enter everything which takes forever. And the expiration date is always on and again had to be manually entered on every single item. This would take a whole day to set it up. I want apps that make life easy not more work
