"AllergySmart" was created as the solution to an increased need by our local community that suffers food allergies. This community is always cautious about every food they buy. As nutrition labels become smaller, font size reduces as well. We feel that the extra eyestrain is a burden of the past. We made "AllergySmart", the first android app that connects to the Factual.com api to get ingredients of scanned products. The ingredient list is checked against known allergy provoking ingredients based on the user's inputted allergies. "AllergySmart" makes life easier by showing the user exactly what is in the scanned product. At a glance, one can see, in large text, if the product is "safe" or "not safe" to consume.
