Giki is an Android application providing users with additional information about various food. By scanning a barcode on the package, you can understand if the product is healthy and ethical.
Giki can be a very useful tool for anyone who cares about the quality of food they eat. The utility is suitable for people with priorities like eating organic, avoiding suspicious additives, reducing carbon footprint, recycling, ethical animal treatment or generally living a sustainable lifestyle.
After a quick barcode scan, the application shows you if the product fits certain criteria. For every positive achievement, the system grants badges. You may focus on any particular characteristics, for instance, animal welfare, responsibly sourced or recyclable packaging. Alternatively, it is possible to consider just the total score.
Users can mark products as their favorites and share them via social media like Facebook. Additionally, after each scan, the tech suggests alternative brands that may be similar or better. It is also possible to search by name instead of the barcode.
