Ratings and Reviews
Buggy and imprecise
The recipes are decent although I agree with other reviewers that had never heard of some of them. "Baby's Bottom"? Really?
The ability to narrow drinks by ingredient is nice, though it'd be better to have them listed by frequency as it's a pain to search the list.
By far though the reason for two stars is the crashes! there are countless "blank" recipe entries that show up in a search and crash the app if clicked.
Bottom line... if you are snowed in all winter with a full bar and a lot of time, you might get some use out of it. And the constant random crashes will keep you from drinking too much...though that's probably not what the authors intended. Otherwise there are bound to be better ones.
Buggy and adds own ingredients to recipes
Very dissatisfied. Looking for a drink program I can add my own drinks. When entering a recipe and after hitting save, the next time you open the recipe it has added a few of it's own ingredients that weren't there when saved.
The ingredients title over writes the amounts of the ingredients so it can only be read in the edit mode.
The recipes that come with program are not real.
First, a heads up. Drink & Cocktail Pro (Lite) is identical to Party Pro (Lite). The author seems to be trying to score multiple sales by pushing identical apps with different icons and splash screens. I've seen no identifiable differences between the two.
As for a review. The app isn't the worst of it's class, it's just not good either. The recipe database is completely without value. There are no recipes that any person will ever know (and many that nobody would want). Judging by many of them, I'm pretty sure that they are either made up or possibly even created by a random generator.
Regarding features and graphics (the other 10%) of any cocktail app, this one doesn't really have either of those. Very standard iPhone controls with almost zero styling effort (meaning that they are boring to look at). There are no features that any other app doesn't already provide. It's pointlessly generic...
There's nothing about this app that redeems the fact that the drink database is worthless. But I will give one singular credit...That they don't include any commonly requested recipes. Normally this isn't a good thing, but with so many apps getting the basic recipes wrong, I'm almost happy to see apps that don't make the situation worse.
If it's not obvious, I would not recommend anybody seriously use this app.
