No favorites... I have one problem woth the app: it doesn't save any drink I favorite. Using galaxy note 4. The app is great. The randomizer is the reason I downloaded it. Randomizes with alcohol, mixer, and glass or you can lock in a choice you want. Huge library of drinks and mixers as well as precise instructions for each drink. Other than the favorites thing the app is great. Will give 5☆ if we can fix that issue.
Guided by sponsors Yes it's got a deep library and s decently designed....but almost every single drink in this app is brand specific, and many of the drinks are the sort you'd find on the website for each of the brands, kooky one offs that don't have a place on any menu. There's a knob creek old fashioned, bulleit old fashioned, etc etc...made with sponsor dollars in mind. If you want a well made cocktail app wait until the PDT one is on android.
Just getting into mixing cocktails. May have been a great app back in the day. But it's been broken for almost 1.5 years, since the last update. About 75% of the time, it quits on opening. Opens most of the time the 2nd time. Search is very weak. Can search only by one of liquor, mixer, OR garnish. Want a drink with gin AND cranberry juice? Search by one, then scroll through a list of hundreds of drinks for the other. It will search within a list, but only the name, not the ingredients or description. A good search is critical with this many drinks. Think the closing scene of Raiders. Once you DO find a drink, you can't save it because favorites doesn't work. A shame too. With the broken search, I come across bunches of interesting drinks that are not what I'm looking for, but a save them to try another time. Since these issues go back years, I have no hope that they will ever be fixed.
Doesn't save favorites When I first got the app I thought it was quite nice. About 2 updates ago it quit working properly on my Samsung s5. About the time the advisement started popping up the favorites went away. Every time I star my favorite and then check my favorite area nothing is there. Then I go back to the favorite that I starred and it is no longer starred. I would have rated this 4 stars other than that but that's a real problem.
Lots of specific brands. You will need a relatively wide selection of drinks to make quite a few of these. If you run a bar then fine but for the average person, I'm pretty sure you will find yourself heading to a store to be able to try most out. Interesting stuff nonetheless. The app is worth a look at least.
Google works better This is a great idea for an app in concept, but it's executed poorly. It's very dated for one and is never updated. The ads are also really annoying. You'll get a much better drink recipe by simply Googling the drink you want to make. Don't waste your time.
