Allergy Basket helps people keep track of the allergy free foods their family can eat by allowing them to create shopping lists by scanning barcodes. The app was created by Charley, Eddie, Keir and Sam from Westfields Junior School, in Yateley. The app, won the Productivity category, powered, by SAP at the Apps for Good Awards 2016.
Some of us have allergies or have friends & family members that suffer from allergies. We wanted to create something that would make it easier for them keep track of the products they can and can't eat - making shopping trips much easier.
Our favourite part was meeting and working with experts and the development agency, both via Skype and in their offices. It was really fun working with them to make our app a reality.
We hope that our app will making shopping less stressful, by helping users to navigate the supermarket and avoid mistakenly buying foods they are allergic to.
We enjoyed getting to the final of the Apps for Good Awards and presenting to the Dragons - it helped that we won! We got to meet the other teams at the Awards, they were cool and it was good to see them.
