YES! As of November 2016, the Android version of this app is now live in the Google Play Store. Here is the link!
The app is currently an iPhone app, but it does work on iPads and other Apple devices. However, when searching from an iPad, the search defaults to search for iPad apps only. The way to correct this is that after doing a search, at the top of the page there will be a series of drop downs, the first of which says “iPad Only”. If you click on that, you can select iPhone Only, and then the Find Real Food app will show up.
Also, you can use the website version of the app inside your iPad: www.FindRealFoodApp.com
It's free for the first 30 days so you can check it out and see if you want to purchase it! The iTunes/Apple app rules are such that we were not able to charge for the app up front due to the fact the guide has a “recurring subscription” and we are not a magazine. We were very frustrated too! So in order to allow for annual subscriptions (same as the WAPF Shopping Guide, printed and sold annually), Apple advised us to make it free to download, offer some valuable features for free (How Foods Are Chosen, Real Food News), allow some searching through categories, and then offer the various subscription options (6 months, 1 year, and coming soon a "location search" functionality). The small fee for the app supports ongoing product research by WAPF to maintain the list of tens of thousands of foods up-to-date, including reviewing users submissions; the large out of pocket costs to build this app; and future addition of helpful features for users (i.e. Mobile Web version which can be used on Android or any internet, and location functionality to find stores near you).
No. The foods inside the Weston A. Price Foundation's Annual Shopping Guide are US brands, and "Find Real Food" app contains their food recommendations. If WAPF gets enough requests to add another country, they may do it, especially if they get support from members in that country who can help do the research. We suggest you contact them and request your country to be added to the guide. [email protected]
Having said that, we have heard from some users abroad that some of the brands listed in the guide are increasingly available internationally, so depending on where you live, there may be some products available locally.
Yes! As of November 2015, our NEW mobile app "Find Real Food Locations" allows you to find stores, markets, and co-ops near you which sell WAPF approved products. Please be sure you have the newest mobile app (it should NOT be a red logo icon, but a blue and green one instead). Here is the link for the website version of the new app: www.FindRealFoodApp.com . And here is the link to the app in iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/find-real-food-locations/id1053992935?mt=8
No. Unfortunately, your subscription to Weston A. Price Foundation (WAPF) does not include a subscription to the Find Real Food mobile app since we are an independent company who is licensing their Shopping Guide database in order to create the app for their followers. Since the WAPF does not allow any influence from advertisers, we cannot have ads inside the app to help recuperate the investment. It's taken us over 3 years of hard work to build this app with a couple different programming firms, and we've made a very large financial investment. In addtion, in order to maintain the accuracy of the locations, there are additional costs incurred each year. Thus we have to charge users. We are confident you will find the app has a lot of value and contains wonderful resources.
