Lots of bug fixes and improvements. The biggest are:
* Better Geolocation - You will have a much easier time getting your geolocation when checking in and it will be more accurate too!
* Removed duplicates - There were some instances where duplicate breweries would appear. This has been fixed.
* Better support for larger phones - The app will look a lot better on the iPhone X series of phones.

Love the idea!
Downloaded this app a few weeks ago, it’s new, I understand but seems to have a few more “kinks” to work out before being great. I have most of the stamps already, uploaded the pics of the stamps and seemed to work ok. I have tried to ch go in to a few other breweries that I did not have stamps too and seem to have issues. I have been waiting for about a week now for one to either be accepted or denied. It would not let me check in with the password so I took a pic of MY mug club glass. Still nothing. But even if the password would work, it won’t let me do anything because it is still “pending”. Please get the kinks worked out so people don’t get a foul taste in their mouth about the app not working.
UPDATE: Just was sitting here at a brewery discussing how close we are to getting all of them. Opened the APP and ALL of the 29 that we have previously been too are now gone?!?!? No way I am going to stop by all of them again so I’m crossing my fingers their is a glitch in the APP and it will reload shortly. Tried to log out and log back in but it would not allow me.

Thank you for being among the first to download our app! We are now about 1 month in and have been working hard to work out those kinks that you mentioned. Thank you for your patience and we hope that you are enjoying the Beer City Brewsader journey.
Good concept, but...
I love visiting the breweries and getting my passport stamped, but I’ve had multiple pending stamps for weeks now. Does no one monitor the stamp transfers? I’d use the GPS check in, but it never puts me where I’m actually at and therefore won’t work. Even if I’m on the location’s wifi.
This app could be so great if someone actually took the time to monitor and help people trying to reach Brewsader status.

Hi there! We appreciate your feedback. If you're still experiencing issues with the stamp transfers, we'd be more than happy to help. Could you email us at firstname.lastname@example.org? Thank you!
Seems like most of the bugs are fixed!
We are spending the weekend in Grand Rapids and found out about this app at one of the breweries. It’s been great so far as we’ve hopped around the city’s breweries. The only problem we have had is AT&T’s signal is horrible, which has given us a few issues with checking in. But that’s not the app’s fault, and several times we’ve been able to log in to WiFi, resolving the check in issue. Overall the app has been very helpful, and has made the trip more fun.
