App usage in central London

We used the app over a week while staying in central London. It allowed me to easily search and filter results for pubs near my location. The app has the same info as the guide, albeit with a small extra cost to turn on a subscription to get the info. I didn’t care as it gave me the info from the paper guide (which I own the current one and have owned 3 older ones) all on my iPhone!

Two issues I’ve reported to the devs:
- the feature that lets u say “I’m here” at a pub and this is what I’m drinking, didn’t work and gave an error when trying to post.
- the other is more of a convenience thing- when searching on the map in an area away from my current location, then drilling down on pubs and popping back up to the map view, resets the location to my current location. The location shouldn’t shift, IMO.

Overall a great alternative to the paper guide albeit with an extra cost for the subscription to get all the guide info. You can easily cancel once the info is not needed.

Very useful tool

Walked 1,322 miles. Lands End to John O Groats. After my map, this app was the most useful tool. Pub hours, facilities, phone numbers, all very useful to a hungry hiker.

331 pints of real and 177 pubs (most Good Beer Guide Pubs) in 85 days. Best summer of my life. Thank the beer gods for this app.

Good Pocket Guide

The CAMRA Good Beer Guide App has all the benefits of the paperback companion, but none of the heft. Also, a good guide when visiting a new town and wondering where to grab a pint.

Having functionality that lets it synch check-ins from apps like Untappd would push it to five stars.
