FrUsTrAtEd! Please fix! ,


I like that this app has breweries and beers from all over the world and not just the United States. However, when I go to use the google search feature to add one not listed it crashes every time! I wouldn’t have paid $4.99 for this app if I knew it was going to be such a pain to use.

Almost perfect for me

I’ve been using this app for about two years, and it has been ideal for me. Able to add beers and breweries simply, easy to put in the information, and able to customize what you want to put in (I.e. if you taste kumquat, just hit “add custom” in the taste part of the log and you can add kumquat.). I did have an issue with crashing for a bit - contacted the designers, and Alex from Looking West worked until he found the issue. Much appreciated! Highly recommended.

Great interface, but short on data

The interface is very clean and intuitive. Great map feature for locating breweries. Of you want a beer journal, however, you should look elsewhere. Although the app carries the basic data for breweries, you'll find that it lacks beer offerings for many of the lesser-known breweries. You can take the time to do it yourself, but I don't want to have to do that, especially because I have a hard time remembering the names of some beers. If you want a more comprehensive database of beer, go to BeerVault. If you want a user-friendly brewery locator, try this one.
