Really excellent, exactly as advertised.
If you don’t use Facebook and wanted to sign in from another account (aside from creating your own) don’t bother. Other apps have multiple social network connections that this one lacks. Good thing this app is free. Download those pictures that show which corporations own what instead and work from there. This app is just inconvenient and dull.
There 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.
Thanks so much to the creators of this app! User friendly, helpful, informative and innovative.
Every time I shop I use buycott and I place many items back on the shelf. Great app. Helps me eat healthier and put my money into products and companies who are aligned with my views. Love it!!
Great for when you're grocery shopping !!! Update 03/26/2018 I use it every time I'm going to buy a new item for my household, even my kids keep asking me "Mom, can you Buycott this?" before trying anything new... I simply love it and I'm grateful for the improvements and recent stability of the app...
Do 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.
Plenty of campaigns for liberal causes, but couldn’t find anything for conservative minded people.
Only complaint is I wish it would ask me to manually approve of posts to my social media.
