You app is crashing  Billclintonlovesfoxnews  3 star

Your app is crashing when I’m logging. I can’t log in. (11/18/2017) 5 stars when it works.


Too many bugs  rs918  1 star

Downloaded it because I’m vegan. Was really excited, however, every time i opened it-it would just crash and close out. Ps. I’ve tried everything. Re-launching. Deleting and reinstalling. Updated. So not sure what was going on.

Please fix!  Julie M 23  1 star

Love this app but whatever you’ve done to is has ruined it. You can’t login, it crashes every time you try.


Doesn’t work  dudleyboo  1 star

Great idea but pointless if it shuts down every time I try to create an account. Obviously nobody is managing the app since this has been a problem for months.


Crashes!!!  annaxiaoyiyi  2 star

I have a iphone 6 and downloaded the app in hopes to shop better products. This app keeps crashing whenever I try and type in my email to make a new account. Tragic.


Tech probs  savannahgalee  3 star

I just downloaded this app a few minutes ago and I am trying to create an account and every time I start to type in an email or password it closes the app. Anyone else have this problem? I hope it can be fixed because this really is a great app to have and I would love to recommend it to family and friends if it would work. Lol

Tack it from me!

Love the idea... simply doesn’t work  Tack it from me!  2 star

The second I try to create an account my typing in my email... it crashes. More stable app is needed.


Would love to use this app but..  Jonathan7BadBoy  3 star

I would love to use this app I love the idea of it but every time I try to open it and make an account it freezes for a few seconds and crashes. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled 3 times and still hasn’t fixed the issue. Please fix this because I’d love to be able to use this app. It’s terrible that people would animal test, makes me sick even thinking about it.

Crashes every time I type  Hamster Tapper  1 star

I’m trying to make an account and it keeps crashing everytime I go to type in my email, would not recommend, great concept though.


Disappointed  Christi364  1 star

I was so so excited to get this app because I wanted to learn how to stop animal cruelty, but right when I downloaded it, I tried to make an account and right when I typed in the first letter to make a new account, it just shut off and returned me to my home screen. I’ve tried it multiple places and have tried to make an account, but each time it still doesn’t work.


Doesn't work. Needs major update.  Keeksgracie  1 star

Was a great app. Used it a lot but won't let me to sign in now.. tells me the email is registered, than tells me its not.. What's the go ? Please fix this issue or have it so you do not need to register at all. Otherwise it's impossible to educated myself on products that test on innocent animals.


Terrible  Rubenjs  1 star

This app needs you to create an account to use the app. I've tried many times but it won't allow me to create an account, so I can't use the app. Will be deleting.


Needs to recognise more products :)  RilakkumaRulz  3 star

This is a great idea and the App is easy to use. Only problem I've had at the moment,is that out of the 25 times I've scanned barcodes, it has only recognised 3 products!! All the others I have had to send a request to the company to find out if it is Cruelty Free or not. Hopefully, the more people use it and send in barcodes, the more products it will recognise. On the good side though - A product that specifically said it was Vegan and Cruelty Free came back as Deffinately Uses Animal Testing!! - otherwise I would have purchased it.


Pretty crapola app  ChellebabyHadji  1 star

This is pretty bad. I paid $3.79 for this app and every time I scan an item, it tells me that there is a network error. Please fix asap.


Doesn't work  Luna69crab  1 star

Have had this app for months but it will never open past the first page :-(


Great idea  Hbfnugfefhyfg  4 star

Missing a few obvious brands but guess it will take time to become a comprehensive list. Well done!


Fix the Issues!  Sweety4567  3 star

Love the concept of the app, but when I try to use the scanner it says that there are network issues.

[ redacted ]

Great Idea, does not work  [ redacted ]  1 star

I love the idea of this app and I'll keep it on my phone in case this is fixed, but the scan function doesn't work at all - it will only display a notification of a network error. As others have said, the app also crashes when you try to access the terms and conditions. While you can't scan labels, you can scroll manually through a list of companies sorted by who does and does not test on animals. It's not as quick, but it's something!


Scanner doesn't work  Annoyance1946  3 star

Every time I try to use the scanner it tells me the "Due to a network issue, we are unable to process your request". Since I've tried to use it in multiple locations, I can say with certainty that it isn't a problem on my end. Still, it's nice that there is an entire list of brands you can look through to see if they are tested on animals. Just wish the scanner worked

Dulcie loves u

Haven't been able to use it  Dulcie loves u  1 star

I downloaded it fine and set it up but every time I try to scan something it says it can't


Network Issues  Zack8891  1 star

Fantastic concept, garbage execution. Could not get it to work even once due to "network error" despite having perfect connection and attempting at 3 different stores. V disappointing.


Hm  Akaosbsnwowkqnlaaoahs  3 star

Scanned several items and I've gotten the "network error" every time. It doesn't seem to work at all and I was really excited to try this app... please fix it


This app doesn't do anything  erbizzle9311  1 star

I downloaded it a few days ago and it worked very briefly but every item I tried (big brand names) did not come up in their directory. Tried it today and it's giving me the network error it's giving everyone else. Waste of an app


No thanks  Thompson478  1 star

"Network connectivity issues" and not reading bar codes... didn't work for me at all.. waste of time.


Network issues  dffgfsdhf  3 star

I love the idea of this app but when I set up an account and tried to use it, it kept saying there were network issues and to try again. I'm assuming it's because there are probably a lot of people downloading it right now because I'm seeing it all over social media, so hopefully the issue is fixed soon because it seems like a pretty great app.

Wouldn't work  Gracie Harrison  2 star

Every time it would scan it would process and say couldn't complete and I tried the scanner on multiple objects😡
