  • Great help!

    by Mr. Whatzittoya

    Simple and very easy to use. I know exactly what's in my pantry so I can plan my menu and no more wasting money on foods that usually expire because I forgot about it. Great tool if you want to organize your pantry. For the price, it's worth it.

  • Good app!

    It is the BEST in the apps I ever used.

  • Also tracking documents expiries.

    by Diego12345678

    I have been looking for a tool to keep track of my expiries including IDs, driving Licenses, passports, visas, insurances and even car registrations. I found just couple of tools that offered the functionalities, but none allowed me to store a photo or scanned copy of the document which is very useful to correlate the expiry date stored with the actual date in the document. I started using this tool for this purpose and works great. No mention that the user interface is very clean and the capability to backup the data is great too. The only cons I've found is that alerts cannot be set up on different dates other that the actual expiry date. It would be useful and will work for any purpose if alerts can be specific to a date/time variable instead of just time on the same date of expiration. Everything else is just perfect.

  • Need this app!

    by silver rhoads

    This is the best way to keep track of all of your food. I've lost countless items of food due to expiration. This app is amazing and I'm glad I can take photos of all of my items easily.

  • Easy and very helpful.

    by Songsak L

    Good jobs. You make my life easier, keep going.

  • Missing features

    by Ziwcam

    I purchased this based on a review on a 3rd party website which mentioned a barcode scanning feature. Unfortunately, it seems that the iOS version of this app lacks barcode scanning which was the key point in my decision to purchase this software. If you’re looking for something to scan your barcodes and build your inventory automatically, this is not the app for you.
