Scanner not working

I loved this app so I purchased the full version and the scanner does not work... I can scan it, but then just goes to a white screen and looking up the item always said can not find in data base... Very sad!

Great app

I use this app all the time in the grocery store when Im shopping. It has been very useful and helpful while shopping. There were things I thought were gluten-free that actually contain gluten and that has helped me adjust my diet accordingly.


I wouldnt even give it one star. The scanner does not work. A waste of four dollars. (Just buy the free version)

Cant tell difference between paid and free version

There doesnt see to be any more products in the paid version. App doesnt do much. Dont waste your money just use the free version

Waste of money

This app is no different than the free one. Its a waste of money. Changes need to be made.


This app has really helped my transition into gluten free living but as I shop I am finding there are a lot of every day products not in the data base. Really disappointing.

Do Not Purchase This App

There are no foods in the database. Total joke. Dear developers, you are whats wrong with America. Wish I could give you zero stars.

Do not buy

Do not buy this. There are no foods in the database. This is a scam.

Needs more foods in database

Bought the full version because I do a lot of shopping at Trader Joes and couldnt locate their products in the free version. They arent in the full version either. Definitely needs a lot more products added if they want people to buy it.

The free version works better.

I bought the upgraded version thinking it would have more products, wrong. The scanner doesnt even work on the upgraded version. Can I un-purchase this please?

Hardly any options

I downloaded this to aid me when Im grocery shopping. It seems as though almost anything I scan isnt found. Deleted and requesting a refund.


Awesome App! Immediate response from leave feed back option. So very helpful!

One and Only!!

Excellent app. I recently found out that I had a gluten allergy. I researched several different apps and found that the Full Version is exactly what I needed. Great to go to a store, scan the product code and right away know if product is GF or not. I highly recommend 👍👍.

Scanner not recognizing all products-edited review

often a review is not available and it says it’s because I need the “FULL” version of the app, but I am using full version . Confused. (Developer response - as I stated in first review submittal- I AM using the non free version and I get that response)

Thank you!

This App is fantastic! My Husband does the shopping, and it makes all the difference in the world. I would have given 5 stars, however you’re still missing quite a few products!

Life is good

After recently becoming gluten free I have found this app to be of free at benefit. It’s so nice to be able to grocery shop and scan items to see if they are gluten free. This app has made my transition very easy!! Thank you!!

Convenient but...

This app is convenient, but there is almost no information on how they determine whether items are gluten free or not. You are left to assume that they know what they are doing. We’ve learned the hard way not to assume. I contacted the company and did not receive a response.

Needs an update

I have a gluten intolerance and this is super helpful. I especially love the scanning option, I do wish that when I went to Ana item, that when I hit the back button, it didn’t send me all the way to the top of the subsection. Example: when I select “candy and chocolate” then scroll down to and select “CASHEW COOKIE”. When I hit the back button, it sends me all the way back to the top of the “candy and chocolate” section. Also, maybe adding a favorites option so when seeing friends or relatives that are not celiac or gluten intolerant you can send them your favorites list of safe seasonings and sauces and other things that you can eat. Just a thought. This really is a great tool to have

Very useful but...

This is a great app. We have celiac in our household and this can save hours of time in the grocery store which is where I use it most (especially if you’re newly diagnosed). In fact, I scanned an item marked GF and it came up “can contain gluten.” Yikes! But, also a couple of drawbacks: - I can tap on an item in the History tab, but there is no “back” button; so when when I go back to the History it always goes back to the top of the page instead of where I left off. - Like others, the same items that are not in the free version are also not in the full version. My husband has the free version and I have the paid version (same type phones also) so we try it on both. Other than that, I would highly recommend this app.


I seem to run across glitches with this app that get super annoying. Why did I just pay money for this app to fail on me in the middle of the store when I need it the most

Very helpful

My grand daughter has to follow a GF diet. She is coming to stay for a week and I am GF ignorant. I downloaded the app this morning and just went to the grocery store. The app worked flawlessly! It simplified the whole shopping experience and I didn’t have to try to line up my bifocals on the list of ingredients. Thanks for making my day better!

Essential for anyone with Celiac

This makes life so much easier

Grocery shopping with DH

Quick, easy, and useful app. Purchased right after coming home from first (post diagnosis), ever frustrating, trip to Kroger. My eyes hurt from reading labeling to make safe choices. I then scanned my pantry’s contents with the app and 90% items were in the databases. Thank You!!!!!

Easy to use and very helpful

I was just diagnosed as celiac. I love to be able to scan and get instant information. And I can leave feedback on products that say gluten free but app says it might contain- their dietician checks out the ingredients and gets back to you

So far have never been given wrong info

Diagnosed with Celiac late in life, this app has really been a great help when shopping for GF products. I started using the free app, but quickly moved on to the paid version (which btw is very reasonably priced). Thanks to the creator of app for one of the most helpful apps in the store.


I’m 13 and have Celiac. This app has saved me from being glutened numerous times! Almost all of my friends and family has this app- it’s amazing!

Celiac savior

My son was diagnosed with Celiac disease and this has been a godsend.

Top of the List!!

I APPsolutely love this App. It’s so convenient and fast. Use it frequently in the grocery store. Very helpful to keep me on track with the gluten free life. My only disappointment with it is that I wish there were an option to put a personal note on the items. I.e. - the products that say “May Contain Gluten”. I’ve contacted product manufacturer of some to question them and have found out that it is or isn’t and would like to document that so I have it for the next time. Also the same for unfound items or items not in the database. It would be great to add these as I’m from New Orleans and some of our local items aren’t listed. Thanks.


Nothing I scan comes up. Developer told me to scan more items or use the search feature. The only items listed are those that are obviously marked “gluten free” on the packaging. I don’t need an app to tell me what I can read on the package.


This app is awful. Out of everything I have scanned only one thing was in the data base. My husband has a android phone and the app he has is awesome, all the stuff was on his. His was free and I had to pay for this one. Don’t waste your money on this. I am not promoting the android app. If I was I would of stated the name. I was stating the free app for him is awesome. I had to pay for this app and it doesn’t even compare.


Awesome App . I use this app. Every time I go to the store. Now I know for sure that I am eating gluten free,and that I won’t get sick. You’re going to love it too.

Love it

Funny story. I’m a teacher and one of my student’s assignments was to create an app. I used the example I am recently gluten free and it would be nice if I had an app that scanned barcodes. The next day one of my students came to me saying she found this app. I had never looked! Please keep adding to the inventory. Great job so far. I love it!

Love this app!!

Love this app!! Literally a life saver! I have severe celiac. Thank you!

This is our “go to” app at the store!

This app is so helpful. My 16 year old son with celiac relies on this app. And if it says “can contain gluten” he won’t eat it, even if the ingredients font list wheat, barley, rye, spelt. With that said, how often is it updated? I saw a GF ice cream list online, your app says “can contain gluten” in many of the items, specifically talking about Blue Bunny Bunny Tracks. But I’m in no way complaining. VERY happy with this app!


I’m new to GF as I have just been diagnosed with Celiacs. This app is very helpful. With only 2 things I can see is needed, which will put it over the top of all the other apps out there. 1). If it had a favorites list that I could add items I painstakingly found and would like to be able to keep as a favorite to assist my family and friends with some things I safely and enjoy eating. 2). When searching from a list and you click on it I can’t go back to the location I was at. The screen goes all the way back to the top of the list - very frustrating.

New to being Gluten Free

Just found out my oldest has to be Gluten Free. It’s hard to know what has and does not have Gluten in it sometimes since not all companies place that on their label. I am shocked about some of the items that did/didn't have Gluten. This app is awesome for new people like our family.

Don’t bother paying, app doesn’t work at all

I downloaded the free version of the app first, but it didn’t provide all of the features that I needed. So I paid $3.99 to download the full version. That was a total waste of money as doesn’t work at all. If you scan a barcode, nothing happens. If you try to search by name, again, nothing happens. I even tried to email my issues through the “contact us” tab provided in the app, and it won’t let me send the email. Waste of money.

Gluten-free Scanner

Nice to have in grocery store and fun to use too. Several people in store have seen me use it and downloaded the App as well!

Essential for Celiac Disease and Gluten Allergies

It isn't perfect. Many times products are not found in the database, sometimes I find things mislabeled. But I always check ingredient lists anyway. This app saves me time of reading through the vast majority of wheat containing products. When I find a product that I think looks good it is reassuring to "double check" with the scanner. Totally worth the price and peace of mind.

Tremendous tool

I am new to GF and am shocked at how many seemingly safe products have gluten added or are possibly contaminated during processing. This app has given me more confidence in my choices and I love the scanning feature. Bravo!


Love this app!! Have celiac and hate the hassle of grocery shopping. This app is a god send. Would recommend buying full version. Not only time saver, but gives you peace of mind. Thank you so much!

Free same as full

Seems like everything I scan before purchasing full came up as needing full. After purchasing full, just getting not in database. To me, waste of money


I’m allergic to all grains so I’m beyond being a celiac. This app has literally saved my life. It would be great if we could personalize the app a little more(ie listing specific allergens) so when we scan something it will say has this has an allergen in here! There is a long list of preservatives I can’t have. I’m also soy and dairy reactive too!! At any rate thank you for still offering a superb app that I use several times a day and Ange added items myself. I do like that feature. Thanks again! 👍🏼👍🏼

Great App

This has taken the guess work out of whether I should buy something or not. If it’s packaged it’s harder to determine if all the ingredients are in fact gluten free and let’s face it there’s so much packaged food nowadays. This is really helpful!

Gluten free

My daughter and I are just entering the world of gluten free. We need this app to help us out. So glad I found this app. I can’t wait to try all the food this app shows. Thanks.

Gluten stinks

I have Celiac disease and I find out alot from this app but sometimes I can’t get it in the store. But it has helped me alot. I didn’t know there was such thing as wheat meat Thanks for having the app for people like me. Keep up the good work


This app has been a life saver, I have celiac disease.

Helpful, but took away the most important part

At 23 years old I was diagnosed with celiac disease and this app was/is so incredibly helpful! My only complaint is that when I first downloaded the app and scanned products it would tell you which ingredients weren't gluten free, which was pivotal in helping me learn what I could and could not eat being newly diagnosed. During one of the updates for the app, they took away that feature and I wish they would bring it back!

Good, just needs an upgrade

This app is very useful, I just wish for how much I paid they could have added in more items a lot of them are not in the bar scanner which is disappointing.

So helpful!!

My son was recently diagnosed with Celiac. This app made us so easy to go through our fridge and pantry, scanning items. I recommend this for anyone. I had him install it on his phone so that he can also scan when he is out with friends.

So helpful!

This app makes grocery shopping so much easier! I love it

Thank you for making this app!

Recently discovered I have a gluten sensitivity and this app has been absolutely essential in helping me eliminate gluten from my diet. The scan feature is awesome! Thanks


This app is amazing. My daughter was diagnosed with Celiac Disease a month ago and we as a family are all going gluten free with her. I have honestly been lost as we’re to start and begin. This app will be a lifesaver.

So Helpful !

I'm new to this game. Going around the store zapping barcodes with my phone was not only ideal but it was fun. Really hoping that if something is not in their system and we need to know if it's GF of not that their is some way we can communicate with the developers to let them know. "Hey this product isn't in there. Do you think you could do some research for me so next time I can purchase it ?"

Waste of $

Don't waste your money on the full version. Free version works just as well. No items found that free version doesn't list.

Life saver

My daughter has celiac and it has been a nightmare shopping for her. My trips to the grocery store took 3-4 hours. We were always questioning the items and had to look everything up. This app makes shopping quick and simple. Mostly everything is in it. It has also made it so she can go to friends houses and check things herself without having to feel weird. Seriously the best app I have ever used.

Super fast scanning. Huge database of even my girlfriends weird Chinese food

Awesome. Don't know the difference between the free and paid version but the free version worked so well I figure they deserve the 4 bucks for saving me hours in the grocery store so I bought the paid version

What's the point

I bought this so I could scan products to see if hey are GF. I bought the paid version and it still didn't find the product by a major company. :( Pointless.

A life saver

I am newly gluten free. This app has taken the stress out of shopping. It is so responsive. It tells me quite simply if an item has gluten or not. Especially great when I forget my reading glasses when shopping. Too many items have type that is too small.

Great app

Having a family of gluten sensitive people, this has become our go-to app for quick checks for gluten in products. Four stars as there is always room for improvement! But this app is fast, quickly returning results, even on cellular as well as wifi connections. Major props to the devs!

Life saver!!!

At the age of 26 I was recently informed that I needed to stay away from gluten. This had been something I didn't realize was in EVERYTHING!!! At least that's how I felt. This app has made this process and shopping so easy for me. I use it everywhere!!!!

It works!

It didn't work at first. When I tried it two days later it worked great!
