Buycott - Barcode Scanner & QR Bar Code Scanner for Negative User Reviews

Buyer Beware... you’ll need more research than this app!There are some good bits of information on here, but there’s a lot of misleading information as well. You don’t know who is putting up the different campaigns or where they got their information. There’s no one to ask either. The causes listed are all good causes, but this app tries to simplify boycotting companies and products down too much. Some of the companies on this list are trying to work on these issues, but they can take time and those discussions are not part of this app either..Version: 3.1.5

It doesn’t work!!!I was so happy yesterday upon completing my shop with this app, thinking great! I have done my shop with no halal products, only to find out that 2 products I bought yesterday are indeed halal certified and goodness only knows how many other products I bought yesterday are also halal certified!! I was so happy when I got this app but now I can’t trust it at all! So sad and angry right now!!.Version: 2.2.0

Buggy, not iPhone X compatibleNot compatible with iPhone X and the app is generally quite laggy and buggy. For an app that’s intended to steer people away from bad, unethical companies, it’s bizarre that it encourages user to sign up with Facebook (and Twitter isn’t a shining beacon of good tech)..Version: 3.1.5

?!Unable to sign in !!! Garbage..Version: 1.01

Not UK compatibleI used this app on a few products and was really happy with it but then I came to the food brands I use most often from Aldi and it just came up with notifications saying nothing I use was on their database. I'm afraid to say it's not worth me having it if I can't fully check what I'm getting food-wise as that seems to be the biggest issue. I already know my make-up, etc. is fine. I'll keep checking for updates though!.Version: 3.1.5

App needs improvementApp needs to be improved. It glitches, doesn’t login well and it takes a long time to load for some reason and when I press on something it glitches. Needs improvement otherwise great app and great idea..Version: 3.1.5

Need improvementIt doesn't show the proper output and there is not enough products on this app..Version: 3.1.4

Don’t waste your timeCrap.Version: 3.1.5

DivisiveThis app is completely biased to liberals and progressives. There are a few campaigns on here that any decent human should be in favor of supporting (infringements on basic human rights) but then there are the silly ones like “boycott Donald Trump” that are just meant to divide people. If that is on this app then there should be a campaign that supports the opposite side of the spectrum. I’m sure if you asked the developer their point of view on equality they would be all for equal distribution of opportunities but yet here they are be exclusive rather than inclusive. Let’s try to do things that benefit people rather than continue to feed upon the negative that is slowly deteriorating the foundation of unity, cooperation, love, and respect that our country is built upon..Version: 3.1.5

One-sided campaigns, huge disappointmentI was excited to find an app to help me avoid unhealthy brands but I quickly realized that this app is completely based on the leftist political agenda. If the app is going to include politics, then all views should be represented. Conservatives have literally been left out from fully utilizing this app. Even if your not conservative, it should raise a red flag that this app is very selective. This app needs to be unbiased to be adequate but the left just has to stick their foot in everything and shove their political agenda down everyone’s throats. The privacy policy is also unsettling..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

Insufficiently moderates and supportedIn spite of the developers' explicit claims to the contrary, this platform currently supports campaigns explicitly motivated by by ethnic hatred. The developers have been alerted to this fact but have not responded. This application has promise, but without a degree of oversight which is currently lacking it risks worsening the problems it purports to solve..Version: 3.1.5

Fake ConnectionsWith this app people are able to choose which campaign a company would support. These aren't always correct and make some companies look worse than they actually are. App spams you to rate five stars upon opening and for each subsequent scan..Version: 3.1.4

Needs updating ASAPConcept great. But. Slow!!!!.Version: 3.1.5

Scam?I hardly found a product that supported (no error). I am in Canada..Version: 3.1.5

No deletion optionHowever awesome it is, there is no option to delete your buycott account. I’ve emailed to request deletion with no success and zero response..Version: 3.1.5

Could be great but it's notThis app is severely outdated with inaccurate information that basically makes it useless. This is a wonderful idea. And I'm sure it's hard to keep updated and accurate but without doing that what's the point? Some of this stuff is years old. I don't see any easy way to report inaccuracies. It would be cool to add a feature where you can choose to boycott specific companies that you manually choose yourself instead of only companies that are under a certain "campaign.".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

Very hard to navigateI love the precise of this app, and can use the simple features of scanning and browsing campaigns. But, I need to join some campaigns. But literally every time I go to interact with something I need to login or sign up. Which is impossible for some reason. I tried with Facebook, but its still in development mode so I have no access, to some of the features. Why is that? Also tried making my own account on the app, everything is fine until I try to create a password, and then the app crashes. Why? Theres no help and support on the app, and the mobile site is awful to navigate. Any help?.Version: 3.1.5

Laggy but Great concept.So far so good! Love the concept, has great potential especially with the amount of injustice around the globe. The only issue is that the app functionality is very poor. It lags too much and takes couple of minutes to perform each task. Please improve. :).Version: 3.1.5

Halal certificationI used to recommend the use of this App to many people. But then ‘they’ removed the category of identifying which products are Halal certified. I have contacted them twice asking why and have had no response. I would love them to say why they have done this..Version: 3.1.5

Boycott this appThey “share” all of your personal information and date, including your IP address. Company that claims to care infringing on your privacy gets a 1 star. We need to quit folding and letting social media and apps gather and sell our information. It’s becoming the norm, you looking for things to boycott, boycott apps like this that are only looking to advance the advertising industry until it’s like the movie “Minority Report” where they have face scanners everywhere and the screens all turn to ads that target you personally..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

Loads of conspiracy theorists and crazyThe anti GMO lobby and conspiracy kooks have flooded this app with thousands of nonsense choices to avoid perfectly safe products and companies. I wanted purely to avoid companies that involve cruelty to animals, and to avoid Halal and Kosher products. Nothing more. But only two of three exist (now none exist?) and they're hidden in an ocean of stupidity from people who clearly don't even had a high school level education. How can I trust this app when there is NO quality control? To the Devs: Don't support every cause, as many you are supporting aren't just unworthy, but they're absolutely BSI and clueless. There is extensive long term testing of GMO, only two papers exist finding any dangers and both were authored by anti-GM nutters and got busted for a conflict of interest and unscientific conduct including cruelty to animals. Cmon, wake up..Version: 2.2.0

No BDSCan't find the BDS movement against Israel and the app seems very outdated like it was created in 2010.Version: 3.1.5

So much promise but unuseable on newer iPhonesPlease update this app, it’s literally unusable on the iPhone XS Max, scanning does nothing and the app is super buggy. The idea behind it and the interface is really well thought out, it just doesn’t work right now.Version: 3.1.5

Do You Like buycottTHIS APP IS A PAIN, EVERYTHING I TRY TO DO IT INTERFERES WITH MY MISSION WITH ""DO YOU LIKE BUYCOTT"" no I don't like you to keep asking me if I like it or not, and it is unfriendly to use Dr_Jeff_Morris.Version: 3.1.4

Boycott israelEasy way to boycott israeli products if you are against apartheid. But annoying to use sometimes..Version: 3.1.4

Needs improvementsThe workings of the app itself is fine. It’s the design that went into the buycott campaigns that isn’t functioning as intended. Who are the moderators for each campaign and how can we trust that they are informed, active, and reevaluate each company based on new evidence? If we can’t trust them (MANY are inactive, don’t make a complete listing of companies, or have made factually inaccurate decisions) then there should be community-run ways to edit the campaign information, such as: 1. The ability to suggest a company be moved from category to category (right now there is only the option to add it to a campaign, but not to remove it from one or to switch it between the avoid/support lists). 2. The ability to vote on the accuracy of each campaign/company listing - obviously with security protections so a company can’t buy votes - and those that fall too low in accuracy ratings are removed from the list. 3. The ability to request ownership/moderator status for a campaign that seems to have lost its leadership. There is basically no oversight and no assurance of quality. It’s a good idea, but it needs to function very well, otherwise why would I bother with these inaccurate reports rather than simply buying whatever as I always have done?.Version: 3.1.5

App not functioningApp doesn’t work. Can’t search, click on stuff, nada.Version: 3.1.5

UselessUsed to be good. Now it is pushing political agendas!.Version: 3.1.4

Search function needs workThe search function needs work. I’m shocked if what I search actually shows up. The reality is that most of us are online shopping and cannot use the handy barcode function, so this search function is critical..Version: 3.1.5

The politics of a tomatoToo woke for me!.Version: 3.1.5

Did not downloadI purchased this app and it doesn’t download ☹️.Version: 3.1.5

I See No Way to Sign OutNot only can I not find where to sign out the few Account settings are not helpful. There is no indication how to change an email address. There is no option to delete an account either in the App or by connecting to the website from a computer. Very disappointing..Version: 3.1.5

PronounsSeems ok so far but no gender neutral pronouns. Seems a bit pointless and performative to allow people to state pronouns when you only have two options!.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

Handy!This app is great because it helps me ONLY buy products from Israel! Thanks for the help!.Version: 2.2.0

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

Not sure what the other people are seeingI scanned a bunch of items and very few gave a result. The ones that did had very little information, sometimes nothing more than a picture of the item!.Version: 3.1.5

TOO SLOWAn AMAZING app I love it but I do not have more than a couple seconds to wait for scanning let alone the couple minutes it takes the app to scan one item while shopping! I wish it didnt crash as much and wasnt sooooo tiresomely slow..Version: 3.1.5

Wide-open to abuse.At this point, several campaigns are either being polluted by hate speech, anti-Israel invective, and foul language in the comments, or appear to have been established to pursue a non-peaceful goal such as anti-Israeli lobbying. There are comments with Muslim vs. the rest of the world overtones. These are all contrary to the purpose of Buycott, which is meant to provide a commercial way to bring about constructive change. One of the following needs to happen. 1). Each forum must to be moderated, with the system only allowing publication of comments (and creation new campaigns) after checking for such dangerous or unacceptable content, just like most discussion boards; Or 2). every campaign must be checked daily for harmful content and harmful results, and closed down if found harmful, with perpetrators reported to the FBI, Australian Security, Scotland Yard etc. as appropriate for our protection against pro-violence, pro-war and harmful groups; Or else 3) the whole forum must be shut down and re-designed with built-in protection against such abuse..Version: 2.1.5

Can't sign in unless through Facebook??...so essentially sneaking information the same way as big business. Nicely played Buycott. Boycott buycott - they're just after yout friends list..Version: 1.01

Great app and great ideaI was struggling to find lists online for certain causes I wanted to boycott. This nifty little app is great. However it takes ages to scan and by that time I’ve bought all the products and on my way home. The speed for it to scan and tell you needs to be faster. Other than that it’s a great idea..Version: 3.1.5

No palm oil infoGreat concept but needs to list additives such as MSG and define whether or not products contain palm oil..Version: 3.1.5

Outdated, full of false informationI’ve always said that capitalism could be used to accomplish great change by informed consumers, so I was excited at the idea of this app. I’m disappointed to find it hasn’t seen an update in 2 years and is full of bad info. Many companies are cited as having connections to certain causes (positive or negative) that aren’t true. Take, for instance, Tillamook, a dairy company from my home state of Oregon. They’re listed as being a primary client of an Israeli textile manufacturer and the source cited for this says NOTHING about Tillamook. I found that almost all sources cited for all 26 of their conflicts showed no mention of Tillamook. This was the case for the vast majority of conflicts I checked the source for. What’s the purpose of this app if it’s full of false claims with no real sources? How will that aid anyone in being a conscious consumer? It won’t. I’ll go back to relying on my own research..Version: 3.1.5

Cannot join!Cannot join with out Using Facebook! Sorry, as much as I want to use this tool for my purposes I will not subject all of my Facebook friends to spam!.Version: 1.01

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

Serious Design FlawsDoesn’t seem to be possible to remove a campaign from your list once it’s added. Can’t get support from the webpage because the “download app” banner blocks the main menu button and has no close-out option. Once I found a way around this and tried to actually click the search bar, on mobile it does absolutely nothing. Can’t click, can’t get typing cursor. In the app when searching something, the search results that come up block half of the “campaigns, people, products” menu, so you can’t sort the results. App and website need serious improvement to be useable, they’re a nightmare (website, on desktop and mobile). It’s a shame because the concept has potential..Version: 3.1.5

Excellent concept but would change some thingsI really like this app and it’s various features. And because of that I have decided to leave a review. There are things I would change or add. There are a few glitches; pictures that are in the wrong place in the product list section and campaigns with no join button or text in the “conflicting campaigns” section of a product. Finally It’s really missing a “my products” section. This would be helpful to tailor things to where you live or what you are used to shopping and I can see myself not really checking the app as frequently without it..Version: 3.1.5

LaggingI have been using the app for many years but suddenly it’s started lagging. Anything I select it just keeps loading and goes blank. Can you fix it asap please..Version: 3.1.5

It would be awesome if it didn't crashed all the time!It would be swrsome if it didn't crashed all the time!.Version: 3.1.4

Really slow!It’s great to see so many people downloading the app and boycotting *cough* certain *cough* products but the servers are really slow! Please fix this! The app is overloaded! New users cant subscribe to anything!.Version: 3.1.5

Opting out of campaign notificationsI really want to keep this app but I don’t want my email inbox filling up with notifications, so I selected opting out of campaign notifications. However, every time I visit a campaign, I notice that the notifications button is switched on. This is for all of them. I find this VERY ANNOYING, and if my inbox fills with crap, I’ll be forced to delete this great app and leave a one-star review next time. Please FIX this!.Version: 3.1.5

Boycott Zionist productsI was recommended this app I had previously downloaded it about four years ago and at that time when I used to scan barcodes in supermarkets it would come up this barcode not recognized now four years later as a conflict in Palestine has increased enormous Lee more and more people are boycotting products made by the Israeli Zionist groups I again downloaded this app went on to super stores in like Lidl and scanned their product results this barcode not recognized so in the four years what has the developer deal developed regarding recognizing products made by design East regime none by the looks of it.Version: 3.1.5
