    "Tracking what I eat, does great. History of my weight and carb consumption, works well. BUT: reason for the 3 stars is the vastly different carb count for the same foods. Simple thing like cucumbers. The carbs range from half cup @ 4.6 carbs to a full cup rated @ 1.9 carbs. This wide range occurs for food after food. This makes accurate carb counting impossible. The recent foods list does not recognize that you eat the same food more than one meal, or even day to day. So it just adds and adds to the list. If you eat bacon 3 meals in a row, bacon will be listed 3 times. This makes your recent food list as long as"

    "I was looking for an app to tell me where my food comes from so I can buy food from places I wish to support and avoid places I don't want to support. The QR app just scans barcodes related to what the actual product is and how much. It also works to help find coupons. It's used to help people with shopping and that is pretty much it. Would be much better if more information about the scanned products was available. This wasn't what I was looking for."

    "As someone that loves to coupon I do find this app helpful. I'm not sure it is very helpful in saying where the food comes from. This app, when I scan the barcode, will give me prices and deals for that item so I can find the best price from competitors. I really like it because it will save time and save some of the things I have searched!"

    "This is not going to be a great solution since this is just a QR scanner. While some foods may have a QR on there product it may not be telling you where it came from, it is the topic they put on there to see. It would be very limited and not a good solution. "
