Our Review

It is pretty clear by now that I love this app. It saved me from having to open identically sized boxes in my refrigerator in order not to put chicken stock in my coffee. I took pictures of all the boxes and then I arranged them so there would be no sleepy mistakes. Chocolate almond milk is way better in coffee.

It is not always perfect but often the mistakes are amusing and good for a chuckle. The app is updated often so the mistakes are becoming more rare and general functionality is improved.

I love it! Go get it and have fun!
