An Android to reduce food waste?
We’re delighted this week to announce that the Love Food Hate Waste mobile app is available on Android and can be downloaded from the Android Market now.
We’ve received lots of great feedback from users suggesting ways improve the app and make it an easier or more useful tool for them. Consequently, we’ve released updates with extra recipes and improved interfaces.
One recurring question was, ‘is it available on Android?’ Now we can answer…yes!
The app went live in the Android Market this week, meaning thousands more Scots around the country can access the nation’s favourite food waste reduction app. In fact, I think it’s an even better tool. The graphics look amazing on some of the beautiful Android devices on the market, taking full advantage of the high-definition graphics.
Like the iPhone app, the Android app provides information on portions so that shoppers never buy more than they need, as well as a range of other features. The unique food waste ‘blender’ asks users to enter the leftover ingredients they have in their fridge, freezer or cupboards and whizzes up suggested recipes from a bank of over 350, from some of Scotland’s top chefs.
The easy to use app gives hints and tips that make it easier for shoppers to plan their weekly meals, cut down on food waste and make the most of what they already have. On average, Scottish households throw away £430 per year of food that could have been used, largely due to buying too much or forgetting to use it.
We’re already receiving lots of feedback on the Android version and look forward to hearing your thoughts.
