This app is a practical and easy to use tool showing you which kinds of fruit, vegetables, salads etc. are in season right now.
Foods that are produced regionally are often times cheaper, tastier and better for the environment due to a shorter and more convenient transport.
While currently available only in German and for Germany/Austria/Switzerland, I plan to extend the languages and regions offered.
There certainly are similar apps out there, especially within the German-speaking community. However, this app:
- Boasts the biggest collection of foods,
- Lets you pick and view your favorites,
- Consists of open source code,
- Can be run on a variety of android devices, and
- Looks and feels better than most competitor apps (my personal opinion).
Especially the open-source aspect is a main motivating factor for me to further develop this app.
