We currently have native apps for Android, iOS and Ubuntu Touch.

We also have an HTML-based app for other mobile OSes based on Cordova and PhoneGap. We'd very much like have native apps for speed and access to more advanced features.

If you're an Blackberry or Windows Phone developer, we would very much welcome you :-)

Native apps

The application is already on the Google Play store and you can download it here.

You can also contribute to its development on GitHub: https://github.com/openfoodfacts/OpenFoodFacts-androidApp

Mobile web version

Phonegap - Android, iOS, Windows Phone

The application is mainly dedicated to the collection of products: bar code scanning , sending photos, input basic information.

The application is developed in HTML and JavaScript and is based on the PhoneGap platform (also known as Cordova). It is packaged for Android and iOS with the Moodstock scanner. On other platforms (Windows Phone…) it needs the BarcodeScanner PhoneGap plugin instead.
