An Android Mobile App for Barcode-Based Search of Food Allergies

by Helena Scheuble for Portland State University

This project is an Android mobile application, which would utilize databases to access information about food products found in a grocery store. The user interface will initially consist of a barcode scanner. The user will photograph a barcode of the product in question, and a message will be received as to whether or not that product is found within known allergen-free database(s).
