Fantastic App For Coffee Lovers

I love this app and has been my go to in areas that I go for the first time and don’t know the coffee shops there and I always have amazing coffees thanks to this app!!😍
I only have one issue, it seems like the last months the app is only working when I enable the location services so it checks where I am and shows nearby cafes but if I want to manually search a different area or a city in a different country, it always says no cafes available, for any option I manually search, even though I know the app would show specific cafes in the same areas when I am physically close by and search through the live location option.. is there a glitch? It has been like this for a while now at least on my phone..

Excellent app for coffee lovers

This app has shown me loads of coffee shops that I didn't even know existed, some well-hidden ones just around the corner from where I work! Fantastic stuff! Keep it up!
Only suggestions would be 1) to allow users to add new places and coffee shops and 2) to allow users to add a short comment when they rate a place, so that they can say why they gave the score they did..... Maybe just allowing 100 or 150 chars, so people don't write loads.

Login required

UPDATE: Now that login isn't required I can use the app again and the improvements are great. Thank you!

I usually roll my eyes at one-star reviews of apps due to one little feature... But in this case it's an important one. I've been using this to find nice coffee shops for ages but now I have to link it to my Google or Facebook accounts, or give them my email address. Without that I can't see anything.

Maybe if they explained why this was necessary - what the benefit is to me - I might see the point. Otherwise, I can't see why this is necessary in order took view a map of coffee shops.

Developer Response ,

Hey philgyford. It's taken a few months but we've just released version 3.4 of the app which no longer requires a register/signup or login - you can just tap 'Skip & Discover' on the first screen and get back into cafe discovery.
