Buycott App the new weapon against Big Money.

I love this app, but unfortunately, I just went out and bought a Windows smart phone, and the app only works with Apple and Android. Damn.
A buycott is the opposite of a boycott. Buycott helps you to organize your everyday consumer spending so that it reflects your principles. When you use Buycott to scan a product, it will look up the product, determine what brand it belongs to, and figure out what company owns that brand (and who owns that company, ad infinitum). It will then cross-check the product owners against the companies and brands included in the campaigns you've joined, in order to tell you if the scanned product conflicts with one of your campaign commitments.
Here's a group of screenshots:
