12 BEST Vegan Apps [2022 Edition]

As a vegan of over eight years, I’ve spent my fair share of time eating lettuce and beans at restaurants before the days of endless smartphone apps to find restaurants or scan products.

That’s why I decided it was high time to put together the ULTIMATE list of the best vegan travel apps that every vegan and cruelty-free enthusiast needs to download.

Without further ado, let’s dive in!

Vegan Food and Drink Finding Apps

I won't lie, there are probably a hundred different apps to help you find vegan food near you. While we love to see the initiative, there are a few apps that clearly dominate the vegan food-finding space. We won't clog this article with vegan apps specific to different areas, but instead, these are the best vegan apps that vegans around the world should download.

Is It Vegan? Scanner Apps

Vegan scanner apps are such a great idea in theory: the simple premise that you can scan the barcode of an item and see whether or not it's vegan. In reality, it's a bit more complicated. There are dozens of these apps, but few actually work and none is perfect. Here are a few of the best vegan apps that do an okay if not decent job as a vegan scanner app.

Is It Cruelty Free? Scanner Apps

Ingredients might be vegan, but that doesn't necessarily mean that a product is cruelty-free. This is especially true within the beauty industry. Checking to make sure that something is cruelty-free (not tested on animals) is just as important as making sure that the products are not animal-derived.

Some of these apps provide scanners (which aren't always super reliable) but they also provide lists of brands that are cruelty-free and vegan, making them essential vegan apps!

Vegan Recipe Apps

I have yet to meet a picky vegan. Most of us seem to be very keen to try new foods and that includes cooking and baking things for ourselves. You can veganize pretty much anything and having great apps to scroll through and meal plan with can make meal times that much more exciting. Here are a few of the best vegan apps for finding recipes.

Apps to Help You Go Vegan

The trickiest part of the journey is often committing to sticking to a vegan diet. These apps provide great resources for committing to a vegan diet and lifestyle and for new vegans are a great place to start.
