I have no idea where else to ask this, so apologies if it’s inappropriate.
I can’t help thinking an app that uses this database and can access the list of ingredients for a product and their ratings simply from scanning a barcode would be useful. Limited to products already put on this site, but still useful.
I would be willing to try and make one, but I doubt I can alone. I don’t want to step on toes. I just want to try and give back to this site and its users, and this idea occurred to me.
I’d be grateful for any feedback/thoughts. If I’m stepping on toes, mea culpa and I’ll drop it, of course. ^_^
I have also been thinking of creating something like this! Unfortunately, I have no idea where to even start as far as the IT involved in creating an App goes :p
Some startup may have already tried to pursue custom scannable codes for cosmetic product ingredients, but getting brands to utilize it on product packaging would prove very difficult; unless current product barcodes happened to already include ingredient info like some food products with diet tracking apps.
Hey guys! The app is called “think dirty” you can scan anything with a barcode and I’ve had luck with pretty much every cosmetic or cleaning product in my house!
Hey guys. Sorry for bothering you. I need your advice on s good scanning app. I've recently lost my iPhone, where I had just an excellent scanning app, and now I use Android (my son's second phone), where this app is not supported. I'd be grateful for any reasonable options. TIA!
Hey there! Don't worry, you're not bothering anyone. Losing a phone is always tough, especially when you lose some of your favorite apps. As for a good scanning app for Android, I'd recommend checking out Adobe Scan or https://smartengines.com/. Both are pretty user-friendly and work great. Btw, the last app is an eco-friendly document scanning option. They offer an automatic and eco-friendly document scanning and OCR service. Hope that helps! And just so you know, I'm new here too.
