    Published: 2015-07-17, by .

    BuyCott offers a great way to keep yourself informed on the companies that support or oppose your favorite causes

    • Minimalistic UI
    • Tons of causes to support
    • Issues when registering new accounts
    • No complete summary

    "Support Causes Right From Your Mobile Device"


    BuyCott - Barcode Scanner Vote, available for both Android and iOS devices, is a helpful app that gives you information on the company whose product you’re purchasing. Just open up the app, login or create a new BuyCott account, and begin scanning your favorite products. BuyCott works like this: using your phone’s camera, just scan any product’s barcode. BuyCott will then give you information on the parent company along with which causes they support or oppose.


    BuyCott uses a minimalistic visual style, making it easy to search for companies that support your favorite causes as well as which ones oppose what you believe in. There are also tons of causes to support. BuyCott will tell you which products to avoid or purchase.


    BuyCott has some issues registering new accounts. There is no option to access a complete summary as to why a company supports or opposes certain causes; instead, BuyCott will take out of the app and will open a new page on your device’s browser to access this information.
