Close but needs some fixes

I love the idea of this for inventory. I couldn’t add bottles to my inventory that are found by barcode but wrong or not verified. Also several bottles scanned incorrectly - for example Bardstown Founders came up as Bardstown Discovery and there isn’t a way to add it separately or “correct” an incorrect scan. It would also be nice to add a “store pick” note after scanning, or to adjust proof as that can very across single barrels.

Great app for whisky nerd

I gave this a 5 star because this is exactly what I was looking for and eliminates the need for a spreadsheet or trying to remember all that I have in my stock. One know is that my list disappeared and could not retrieve for almost a week and thought it was lost forever after all the hard work to scan all my bottles in. By the way about 40 bottles were not findable which was was a bummer and but did log over 200 other bottles. Need some work in fine tuning and would have given it a 4 but because a developer developed an app that filled a need for us bourbon nerds a 5 was given. Give it a try and let’s hope they fine tune and add other bottles to searchable bottles that are out there.

Lots of potential, but has critical flaws and appears it may be abandoned.

The app interface is cool, it’s user friendly and has lots of potential.

The problem is it has a very limited amount of inventory that you can add… if you stick to *only* major companies and normal sizes you may be fine. But if you get special variations, try to add from medium to small companies you will be screwed. Very hit and miss! Out of about 50+ bottles my wife and I have, I was only able to add 10.

The critical flaw is they choose is to ensure that only they can validate new entries, and obviously they can’t keep up so the app is of limited use and as such has very limited adoption. Look at apps like Discogs where anyone can enter but others can update/correct, etc. Let folks add what they want and just a button to say ‘this is wrong, please review’ for corrections. Unless changed the app will never be widely used.

… the fact there hasn’t been an update in over a year isn’t a great sign either. Too bad, lots of potential here.
