As a newbie vegan, it can be a little confusing reading labels to see if those potato chips are really vegan. Along came IsItVegan app, in theory this app allows you to scan bar codes of food items and it displays if it's vegan but I've seen quite a few reviews that stated that it really didn't work all too well while some others rave about it.
You're travelling out of town but don't know where to eat. HappyCow lets you find restaurants that have vegan items on their menus. They also have restaurant reviews and international restaurants as well. Reviewers of the app have mentioned that it's mainly for large metro area vegan restaurants, not so good for smaller towns
Follow Dr. Greger's list of healthiest foods to have daily for healthy living. Check them off the list once you've acquired the suggested serving per day. As a visual person, this sounds right up my alley. If you like to check off lists this is for you. All the proceeds of this app apparently all got to various charities.
A search engine that will give you a vegan alternative to meat-meals. Many new vegans reach for packaged foods as replacements. This app seems to find those types of alternatives for you. For example, when I typed in chicken, it gave me packaged foods like ChickIn nuggets or Gardein Turk'y Cutlets that were meat alternatives.
Have you ever read a food label and asked yourself...what does that mean and is it vegan? Well, there's an app for that. If you want to verify whether the food additives/ingredients or even clothing materials in your store purchased item has been derived from an animal, this app can tell you the details.
Not only does this app let you scan items to see if they are cruelty free but you can get alternatives right on the app. You can also take it a step further and let those cruel companies know via social media that you're not a fan of their cruel testing.
