Is an app that allows you to scan a barcode possible?

I have no idea where else to ask this, so apologies if it’s inappropriate.

I can’t help thinking an app that uses this database and can access the list of ingredients for a product and their ratings simply from scanning a barcode would be useful. Limited to products already put on this site, but still useful.

I would be willing to try and make one, but I doubt I can alone. I don’t want to step on toes. I just want to try and give back to this site and its users, and this idea occurred to me.

I’d be grateful for any feedback/thoughts. If I’m stepping on toes, mea culpa and I’ll drop it, of course. ^_^

I would love for to have an app! – Alex_18 2020-05-31

I have also been thinking of creating something like this! Unfortunately, I have no idea where to even start as far as the IT involved in creating an App goes :p

Some startup may have already tried to pursue custom scannable codes for cosmetic product ingredients, but getting brands to utilize it on product packaging would prove very difficult; unless current product barcodes happened to already include ingredient info like some food products with diet tracking apps.

Hey guys! The app is called “think dirty” you can scan anything with a barcode and I’ve had luck with pretty much every cosmetic or cleaning product in my house!

I agree with Ivetka! I don't like the think dirty app nearly as much as this website! I just wish had an app. It would be so useful and convenient! – Alex_18 2020-05-31
