Great Application! Would like a few more features.

I've been using barkeep for the last 3 months. I have found it has greatly sped up inventory time and is very accurate. I have noticed some bugs though since the release of 3.0. The app is crashing occasionally during inventory and running extremely slow at times. I find this happens more often when I'm running on an iPod touch(latest gen) compared to when I use it from my iPhone.
Also I would like to see a few more of the features from barkeep online integrated into the app itself, primarily the ability to edit supplier info and run order reports. That would be incredible to be able to accomplish that right from the app. Essentially being able to take an inventory, run the order report, and email my orders right from the device. Perhaps this could more reasonably be integrated into the iPad version.
I love the universal feature that I can finally run barkeep on the iPad now, but would love to see more use of the extra screen real-estate and power offered by the iPad.
I can't wait to see what future versions will have in store.

Promises more than it can deliver

I'm still trying to set up my items list before my first inventory. I scanned several popular items such as grey goose me corona. Half were not found and the other half did not have bottle weight information.

Scanning barcodes was what brought me to purchase this service, but since it looks like I have to manually do all of it myself there is no convenience factor to speak of. Amazing that a database of "over 75,000" items doesn't have bar codes for great goose and stoli, nor did it have bottle weights for Hennessy VS or Crown Royal Regal Apple. Where's the convenience if I have to manually search the database then also add a barcode to it, or manually add bottle weights.

I guess that's why it's so cheap. Big words, little to back it up.

Very Dissapointed

I purchased the original version for the Iphone and online account and felt very excited about the features and possibilities; however, after having consistent problems with syncing, losing inventories, missing items. etc. I stopped using the app and reverted back to my excel perpetual inventory. The problem seems to be in using automatic sync on both an ipad and iphone. I actually had to re-enter my inventory twice after the first one was lost which resulted in quite a bit of frustration. Quite possibly the problem stems from a slow internet connection which you should consider before purchasing.

I've also had issues with the app retaining bar codes of items I manually entered, incorrect scanning of beer bottle barcodes, also I've found the app to be cumbersome when doing multiple inventories in the same time frame you have to be cautious on the location.

I did make contact with the designer and they seemed more than helpful in trying to resolve the problems; however, without proper resolution I have lost faith in the ability of this app do to what it promised to do. I have cancelled my online account.

I really would like my money back as this item has not been useful for me.
