We hope you’ve had a great summer! We’ve been keeping very busy over the last few months, and we’re pleased to let you know that we’ve made some really exciting improvements to the app.
Apples and Androids
First of all, the Spoon Guru app is no longer just for Apple devices. If you have an Android device, the free Spoon Guru app is now available in the Google Store. This is brand new, so if you spot an issue please let us know so we can try and sort it out as quickly as we can.
Bigger and better
You asked for more products to be included in our database and we’ve gone ahead and done just that. In fact, we’ve increased our database by 85% and included a whole raft of new products including own-brand Sainsbury’s and Tesco items. This massive increase means you can now scan over 150,000 products with Spoon Guru to help you quickly and easily find the ones that are right for you.
Every body is different
We know that some people have higher levels of ingredient sensitivities than others. With this in mind, you can now choose if you want your search results to include products with the ‘may also contain’ warnings that manufacturers regularly add to safeguard against serious allergy triggers. This means that if you’re not eating an ingredient like dairy or gluten, but aren’t allergic to these ingredients, you can turn off the ‘may also contain’ option. You can find this in the exclusion dropdown on the Food Intolerances section of your Profile. However, if you are allergic to these ingredients, you can ensure that any products at risk of contamination during manufacture stay safely out of your shopping trolley.
And last, but certainly not least, we’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone using the app and supporting us as we grow. We’re totally chuffed to have had the app featured in both Women’s Health Magazine and That’s Life over the last couple of weeks.
We’re always looking for new ways to take the fuss out of food shopping and make life easier, so please keep sending us any suggestions and feedback you have. And, if you’re a fan of the app, please make sure you rate it to help other people find out about it too.
We hope you enjoy the new features!
