Allergy-Friendly App Updates

Get the latest happenings!

New Features Announcement: Save time and find more product details. Adding more prepackaged label information all in one place. We listened to your initial feedback and made some updates.

Here are the latest updates regarding the Korean Convenience mobile app.  New features include brand name search, meat, and drink filter, USD/Korean Won toggle, ice cream products added, and Korean subheadings/titles added.

Korean Convenience has surpassed the first two-hundred downloads on both platforms!  ​​🍾🥂 Cheers!  I’m super excited about this slow launch and can’t imagine what the future holds for the Korean Convenience app.  I’m pouring all the excitement back into the app to improve the features and speed. Thanks again to the Korean Convenience subscribers for investing in the community, and supporting the app’s development.   

So here are more details about the new features and how to use them.

Brand Name Search

Previously, if you wanted to search for a specific brand you had to search through all of the products available. Now, you can go to the  ➡️ “ALL PRODUCTS”  ➡️  See All  ➡️  Filter  ➡️ Select Brand  ➡️  Hit Apply”.  Search by brand name and check out what is available from the most popular Korean brands.  Featured brands include Binggrae, Calbee, Crown, Nongshim, SPC Samlip, and more.

Meat Filter

When the Korean Convenience app first launched the suggestion was made that it would be even better if you could filter the meat options.  Because we recognize there are various dietary requirements such as Halal and Kosher. 

We want to add a meat filter to the ramen category so that you can find exactly what type of flavor, and ingredients fit your dietary lifestyle.  Scroll to the ramen category and hit the  ➡️  See All option and choose between beef, chicken, pork, and seafood. 

Drink Filter

Want if you just want to buy a bottle of tea?  Thirsty for a specific beverage and don’t want to scroll through all of the drink products available?

Go to the drink category  ➡️  See All and choose the best option.  With our drink filter, you can search through the products available and find coffee, juice, milk, tea, sports, and yogurt drinks.

Weight & Korean Calories 

The front and back photo is available with every product that is featured in the app.  However, another aspect of dietary management can also include calorie intake and tracking.  We want to help you make the most informed decision when purchasing your favorite snacks.

At the end of every description, you will now find the total Grams and Korean calorie information.  We’re putting more information in one place so that you can find product details as conveniently as possible.

USD Price (coming soon)

In order to give better functionality for people who don’t currently reside in South Korea we needed another option for pricing.

USD pricing information will give a closer retail price for anyone who doesn’t live in South Korea yet still wants to purchase Korean snacks.  *Pricing is subject to change depending on weight, quantity, and region when buying purchases.*

Database Improvements

Some major improvements to the Korean Convenience database:

  • Added new foods, which brings the database up to 300 in total!
  • Improved brand names; e.g. “Samlip.” -> “SPC Samlip”
  • Add calories and grams for each product. (Coming Soon)
