Buycott - Barcode Scanner & QR Bar Code Scanner Positive Reviews
Money = VotesDo you feel powerless due to politicians not representing us anymore? Do you feel like companies with lobbyists have a louder voice in important decision making than we the people do? Then vote with your money. Companies hear money (or lack of) more clearly than they do the vocal concerns of the public. This app allows you to know which companies are profiting from your grocery store or product purchases. Buycott give you the power to make informed purchasing decisions. Vote with your dollar, help the companies who care with your hard earned money. And remember that we are all in this together..Version: 3.1.5
A good resource for information but needs major work!I starting using this application fairly recently and while I admit some of the things that i purchase are less than mainstream, I have been diligent in adding as much as i can to fill the database Buycott uses for the good of all of us. What annoys me are the constant app crashes (10 times in the last two days, usually while I am trying to submit a review for a product), and the scanner going crazy (trying to scan a product 10+ times in a row rapidly without pulling anything up, like it seizes up pulling an entry from the database and so just keeps trying to scan with the same results). I really do want to keep my buying power away from certain corporations and keep it moving towards better causes, and this would be a whole lot easier without the glitches. Overall, 3 out of 5 for in-depth data on corporations and corp. trees but you have to fix it before I give it anything higher..Version: 3.1.4
Disorganized, buggy, but a good ideaThis is my dream app. It just needs to function. I can’t view any campaigns under the environment tab and haven’t been able to since I downloaded the app a month ago. Also, on a company profile, it’ll show a number of “other campaigns” but when I click it sometimes it will show many campaigns less than that number or none at all.
There’s no way that I can find to add info about a product or company that only exists, you can just report an innaccuracy. I also don’t know how to create products. I also don’t know what an “action” is or how to take one. When I first started using it there was a section on product pages for me to select if I was going to buy the product or not and I think when I selected no it means I “took an action.” Now that doesn’t show up for me anymore.
Please fix these problems! I have contacted customer service but gotten no reply..Version: 3.1.5
Good idea but too politicalThere is very little choice where I live but I like the idea of a organic user created database(if that’s what it and not yet another illusion). Disappointed in it’s obvious political orientation as any intelligent person would not believe we have a choice in partisan politics or really in anything; wish there was a way to buycott the federal reserve and if they want to make their app about politics and social justice they should start by explaining the banking system, fiat currencies, and those who control it(the same people that control the media, our food, and everything else). But all we can do is vote with our dollar; and for that the app gets 3 stars, but I wish it got 5. leave the stupid politics out of it; quit trying to control people ; it exposes you as a part of the problem disguised as the solution..Version: 3.1.5
Great app butTo be honest, I think it is hard to keep track of all the companies and subsidiaries as there are so many products and, I suspect, diversification and diversions by corporations. However, I was disappointed to find out that they did not know that Garden of Life is owned by Nestlé. I had been buying a lot of their products and therefore unwittingly supporting an extremely immoral company; fortunately my step-daughter is more savvy and figured it out. I will still use their app and still highly recommend it but do your research too. The other great thing is that it will send a notification to the company telling the that you did not buy their product and what the issue is..Version: 3.1.5
Speak with your walletThe only way to actually get companies to do that right thing, is to not do business with bad companies, and give your money from good companies. This app allows you to easily avoid certain products as it tells you what it’s parent company does, whether good or bad, and provides alternative products if you decide not to buy it. You can also add friends and see what decisions they have made (if they decide to turn that on of course). It’s a great app that allows you to easily make good purchasing decisions. I highly recommend it to everyone..Version: 3.1.5
Great Educational Tool!:)Been using it for years so this review is late. Got tired of the prompt to to review every time I opened the app in the store LOL. The good - different campaigns offer new perspective and learning opportunities to expand your horizons regarding the adulteration/destruction of food by big farma & big companies and the diabolical ties that have been created in the pursuit of making $$$. I also found international items in the database. The bad - unfortunately even food is politicized and the “identity politics” is nauseating😕. Just keep telling yourself you’re here for the food, health and to protect yourself..Version: 3.1.5
Amazing idea and start to a world changing appSome of the foods I am interested in buying, have no information about them on this app. (they aren’t in this database anymore than just a name). So this bums me out because it only really sticks to larger brands. Most large brands are all bad and should be avoided in general. I wish there was an option for me to send a note that certain products need some research done! I would love to help be part of the truth revealing! Thank you for what information IS offered though. This is a great idea coming to life. I hope some day there is a way good company brands can be rewarded from this...and evil ones will get revealed..Version: 3.1.5
Get it!What an awesome app! I'm so glad I found this- it's an easy way to make a difference without spending your whole life on Google! If there is a cause you really care about, or a few, this makes it easy to make sure you're shopping choices aren't conflicting with your cause. If they are you can easily send a message to the company. It will also tell you if a company supports your cause and you can tell them that as well- great way to easily give companies feedback, good or bad. This little app could make a big difference..Version: 3.1.4
Don’t Just Complain, Take ActionYour money is your power, and we need to stop giving that power away to people and institutions who cause us harm, danger and imbalance. This app helps you redirect that power responsibly. Is it a perfect app? No. But it’s free, and it’s effective, and it is one of the few apps that actually makes a difference in the world. I’d rather join the couple million Buycott users who question their purchases -who take a moment to stand up for their values - than the billions who just mindlessly complain and consume..Version: 3.1.5
Very Good AppThis language popped up when I went to do the review. It does though state my beliefs and cynicism exactly. So, I'm a cynic and very distrustful of large for profit corporations that I believe will do ANYTHING.... REPEAT ANYTHING...to make money. I therefore was looking for an app to help me make purchases from companies that I either agree with or at least I don't oppose. This app is the best I've found to allow me to check products and companies before I buy. I use this app every time I shop. It's quick and easy and I recommend it..Version: 3.1.4
No personal conflictsThis app is great! I got it and stopped using for almost a year, but now I'm back at it. I thought it was going to lead me to use better cleaning supplies and hold once local/small companies accountable for selling out, but it actually as proved to open my purchases to chains. I assumed walgreens and seventh generation might be bad organizations, but thy aren't! Still trying to but small and local, but this app makes it easy to but convenient and still be aligned with my moral compass..Version: 3.1.4
The best APP FOR AVOIDING GMOSI absolutely LOVE this app. It helps me make the RIGHT choice when it comes to many products I buy. Body lotion, facial creams , food that is made with MONSANTO CRAP. I just am thrilled I have this help next to NON GMO Project verified. I also do wish that BUYCOTT had everything that can be scanned but do your part and type in the questions it asks and maybe it will be soon be an item to scan. Thanks to everyone who created this app and continue to make it better..Version: 3.1.4
Love ItI’m doing my best to a void giving money to those corporations utilizing exploited laborers or causing environmental degradation/destruction. Short of having your own small subsistence farm, it’s almost impossible to a void utilizing products from these companies. But this app helps me to identify those corporations I definitely do not want to support and/or help me choose the lesser of the evils or recommends a better product. Love it..Version: 3.1.5
Voting with my dollarThis app has personally helped me “vote” with my purchases. It’s helped me stay informed by avoiding purchasing from certain companies that I wish to not support and makes me feel better about my shopping. It’s really easy to use, most the time all I have to do is scan a barcode and I’m immediately informed about that particular product. Thank you for making my life easier!.Version: 3.1.5
Helps me make decisions that are rightWhen I first open the app I was a little put off because it seems to be super liberal. It’s so hard to find good information that isn’t slanted so I tried look past that. I actually use this app to support Trump and buy products from several other corporations that seem to politically offend Buycott. I just had to turn it around to use it to support what I think is right..Version: 3.1.4
Responsible Consumers Unite!Sure it adds 20 minutes to my shopping - sure it makes me uncomfortable with some of my most traditional shopping patterns - sure I wish it had the ability to do similar ratings for items without barcodes - but these are all the uncomfortable things that we need to embrace to create the impact we want to create in the world. Sign up and vote for causes with your cash!.Version: 3.1.4
Great app, but crashes when you select "yes, I'll buy this"This is an awesome app - it's easy to see the impacts of your favorite companies and will also suggest alternatives that will better align with your stated values. The only problem with it is that when I hit the "yes" and sometimes the "no" button for "will you buy this?", the app crashes. While it does save your answer, it gets annoying pretty quick when you're evaluating multiple products in a row..Version: 3.1.4
Helps me stay on track with what matters to me.I’ve been using this app for years and really appreciate that it helps me stay on track with what matters to me and my family. Many times I have returned products to the shelf because they didn’t meet the criteria that matters to me. People see me use it in the store and I tell them all about it. It’s a great resource! Try it you won’t be sorry..Version: 3.1.5
Awesome appMy best friend showed me this app a few days ago and I've been stuck on it ever since. It's a great way to find out if the products your using go against what you believe in. I'm sure as time goes by this app will do nothing but get more detailed in its findings. It's shocking to find that a lot of companies lack morals and this app is a great way to find those that actually care..Version: 3.1.4
This app is perfect for making positive changeThis app is by far one of my favorites. It allows you to make sure that you aren't buying products from sources whose values differ from your own. You can rest easy knowing that with each purchase, you are helping make the world a better place. Give Buycott a try today and start voting with your lifestyle!.Version: 3.1.4
Great resourceI love this app. It helps me be a more savvy, responsible consumer. It is astounding how many products are owned by the same big companies! The info I get in Buycott informs the feedback I give to companies, not only complaining when they are being irresponsible, but complimenting them when they do something good. I do have problems with it crashing sometimes. Hope the developers improve on this. All in all, a very helpful app..Version: 3.1.4
Vote with your wallet !I love that this app makes it convenient to only support companies and products that are parallel with what I believe in. I also love how easy it is to share socially when you've made a product choice, and to write companies directly to encourage them to change! Thanks for making this world a little easier to navigate every day!.Version: 3.1.4
Giving back to the worldThis app really makes me feel like I’m helping the world even a little. I have learned so much being able to scan a product and find out how it impacts the world around me. I don’t use it constantly with everything I buy. But I use it as much as I can and I feel like a better person for it..Version: 3.1.4
Please enable search without barcodeI get most of my groceries through Peapod and Fresh Direct. It would be great to be able to search items by name before I create my shopping list. Even for shopping in the physical store, it’s time consuming to stop and scan in the store — I would much prefer to learn about the products when I’m making my shopping list. Thanks for considering!.Version: 3.1.5
Wonderful App, with room for improvementIts a great way to learn about the illusions of choice and the more people use and update the app the more people can make ethical purchases with their money. An awesome way to fight back since their wallets are the only way companies will change.Version: 3.1.5
Good idea with room for improvementI like the concept of knowing what I buy based on my politics. The drawbacks: wish there's an optional search by company name instead of only scanning. Search is slow when in stores due to jamming signals and limited broadband. There is no contact information on website alone. Just came across grossly inaccurate information about a favorite product, which took some time figuring out who to contact for correction. Caveat Emptor.Version: 3.1.5
Love it, needs some workI love this app and believe it can do some good work, but I fear that it could lose worth and users due to lack of activity. Whether it be campaign runners or anyone, it is important to stay up to date and relevant. Otherwise what’s the point?
Please clean house and update products, companies, and campaigns. This means take down unresponsive and unhelpful and untrue campaigns and products please.
Thank you.Version: 3.1.5
Changed my lifestyle! Still needs info updatesThis is a phenomenal app to change your lifestyle and your awareness of what exactly your money is going towards.
Please, if you join, contribute more information to the app. Do your research. The info more that users put in, the better this app works! Do your part 😊.Version: 3.1.4
Buycott appThis app is easy to use, gives access to more information than I expected, and has proven extremely helpful. It has made me much more able to buy according to my beliefs much more effectively. I can now avoid seemingly benevolent or neutral retailers that quietly pay to oppose the cause I care most about..Version: 3.1.4
Best app out thereEvery consumer needs this app. Our dollar is the last power we have! We need to use it wisely and not give it to undeserving, uncaring, uncouth companies. This app isn’t perfect but it has the right idea and can be improved. It is the only one of its kind empowering consumers to make better choices..Version: 3.1.5
Love it.Everyone should be using this app. It's easy to use. Just aim and know instantly if you're about to poison your family. I also love the new feature that lets you email the company. I just wish more of the emails were readily available. Overall, cannot say enough good things.Version: 3.1.4
Great idea!So far, so good! I used this app during my entire grocery trip and it changed how I purchased things. I truly enjoy knowing that I'm spending my money ethically. There's some companies that aren't recognized but I'm assuming they are either too local or it will just come with time.
Overall, good experience!.Version: 3.1.4
Be Patient...Be SuooortiveThis App is evolving and growing. It might not be perfect yet but I’m sure the programmers would love our input. My response is to some of the remarks that said it didn’t pick up some of the companies that should be in the list. Our feedback to Buycott helps improve the App..Version: 3.1.5
The most useful appIt’s nearly impossible to know who I am supporting with the multitude of brands out there. Buycott makes choiceful shopping possible. It’s not perfect, they don’t have every single brand or item, but they guess based on info given pretty accurately. The scanner is very fast and easy. So grateful for this app!.Version: 3.1.5
Wonderful!I've been using this app for a few years now, and recently I've been telling everyone about it.
I'm even honest in letting everyone know that it is bipartisan. It simply gives you the information and lets you have the power. But of course in the current political climate, boycotting is our one true power against the government right now. Especially because this leader is so focused on corporations.
Though not everything is listed with the app yet, there is plenty to let me know that I am not contributing to organization I consider, well, evil.
Love this app!!!!!.Version: 3.1.4
A useful, educational everyday toolBeautiful concept, great app. It’s a wonderful tool to have and I especially like the “Family Tree” feature so I can see a company’s relationships. I only wish there were more people using it and cataloging products and causes. The app can only be as strong as its users. We need to contribute just as much as we use it..Version: 3.1.5
Good buyI really appreciate this app helping me avoid giving my money to companies that support sweat shops or that work against labeling GMOs or that support SOPA and open up the presidential debates on both sides and many other causes but why dont I see causes that support the 2nd amendment or amcause against Drs castarting children and giving them puberty blockers and other causes that millions of us care about?.Version: 3.1.5
PUBLIC IGNORANCE IS CORPORATE BLISSIn this "Democracy", making your voice heard does little because those who should be listening have ears stuffed with money.
Make them listen; Take that money and stuff it somewhere worthwhile.
Your dollar is your vote in a capitalist society. Use it wisely. Get in informed with this app and other recourses.
Public ignorance is corporate bliss!.Version: 3.1.4
Great way to keep track!I've always been aware of the problems with corporations. It's tough to keep track of all of them efficiently. This app does that for you, and it does it pretty well. There are even ways to contest certain assertions that may not be supported by evidence..Version: 3.1.4
Great appFrom what I can tell it has a fairly extensive data base to pull from so most items scanned will turn up with something. Fantastic for making buy decisions easier. Great for anyone who wants to make an impact when shopping. Money talks..Version: 3.1.5
Useful source to support what you believe inThis app gives me the opportunity to know the "behind the scenes" of those brands I shop; that transparency allows me to better choose the companies I want to support by buying their products. Also gives me alternatives to buy of brands that are more according to my values. I really like it..Version: 3.1.4
Love this appHaven't found a product yet that it doesn't have info about. And I'm in Canada so that's saying a lot..Version: 3.1.4
Boycott IsraelThank you for creating this amazing app. We are all so thankful to be able to boycott the apartheid state of israel..Version: 3.1.5
Great app but needs updatingIt’s a great app, but the last update was years ago. It doesn’t use the newer phone screen sizes, and is starting to look a bit old..Version: 3.1.5
Love the appThis app is really great in principle, and I love having the option of knowing about what I buy. The only downside I’ve encountered so far is that anybody can create campaigns, and sometimes they aren’t for the best causes..Version: 3.1.5
HilariousLook up pictures of barcodes and if y I scan them you can get some funny results
I’ve already had this app scan a barcode that says a product is Kleenex tissue and had the product picture of tony hawk pro skater 2 for the ps2
Also works for boycotting I guess.Version: 3.1.5
Search function is so bad and overall design is not goodThe app looks like it was designed in 2010 and hasn’t had an update since. love the idea which is why i gave 3 stars..Version: 3.1.5
Does not workGave it three stars for the effort and ethical value of the app itself but it won’t let me sign up for any campaigns for some reason. I try to create a password and the app crashes. Can someone please fix that?.Version: 3.1.5
Love itEasy to use. Great platform!.Version: 3.1.5
Love it!!Best. App. Ever. Everytime I use it I feel like I’m doing my little part to get that criminal out of the White House.Version: 3.1.5
Great appHowever it does not have many products from on line distribution like modere, Monat, and others?.Version: 3.1.5
So helpful and eye opening!This app is a huge help in bringing me closer to living in line with my values. Often you want to buy products that don’t cause harm, but it’s overwhelming to even try. This app allows me to make better informed choices and think twice about what I’m buying. Living under capitalism, it’s basically impossible to choose products that do no harm, but this app at least helps me better understand my impact and choose what companies get my money..Version: 3.1.5
Great app!Still a number of things not found, but a great app..Version: 3.1.5
Great app!Great app. Invaluable n very informative! Great to be able to make informed choices..Version: 3.1.5

5stareMy other scanner didn't work at all this is way better.Version: 3.1.5
Easy to use, but feedback should be easierScanning items works well and selecting campaigns is good with list of companies and links to justification for support/boycott.
Would be nice to be able to search a company and see if they are listed on any campaign, as well as their business relations.
Also, please make it easier for us to send you new companies to add to campaigns and submit comment and URL for inclusion..Version: 3.1.5

WONDERFUL. just wonderful.I cannot say enough about how great this app is. I now have a POWERFUL tool in my hand with which I can enact positive change in this world.
