Improved, but could still be better An earlier problem with the app crashing appears to have been solved. An improvement would be have the pins a different colour in the map if the pub has been visited. Even better also create a want list where the pins are a different colour again. These two features would really make the map useful for me. Is there a way to store pubs visited on line. I recently lost my phone and have to start again.
Much Better Than I Remember I remember this app being rather flakey and underwhelming. However, as it is a bit more convenient than the book, I thought I'd give it another go. Glad I did, since it is much improved and does precisely what I want it to.
Support....what support? How do I get access to my account settings and My Guide after upgrading my phone? In the App Store it says: "Android Backup Manager should transfer account settings and My Guide when you reinstall or upgrade to a new Android phone/tablet" The native Android 'copy to new phone' using NFC did not do this. Which Android Backup Manager is being referred to, as there are so many? I have emailed support twice regarding this with no reply! Not impressed with the Greenius' non support! I HAVE CONTACTED THEM TWICE MORE - STILL NO ANSWER !!! UPDATE. Eventually I received a communication from Greenius, most of which is in their reply below, however this still does not solve my problem. I WAS using the same Google account, 'Back up my data' and 'Automatic Restore' WERE both ticked. The data was NOT transferred. The phones are both Samsung Galaxys. S3 to S5. The last statement in Greenius's reply to me says it all: 'If you have already done this and the information is lost, I'm afraid that we can't do anything to help you.' Why does the app not store 'My Guide' data in a seperate file on the phone/SD card as other apps do? That would be the sensible solution! Very Disappointed!
Needs lots of improvements Just been updated but still needs could be lots better. The biggest single improvement they could make to this is the ability to enter comments against particular beers, and enter new beers for breweries along with comments, I think that is more useful than entering comments on pubs.
Not impressed I lost access to my "legacy version" when i updated phone. Not convinced enough to start over. Will probably revert to free alternatives despite having a CAMRA membership.
Needs a more beer-centred interface This is the Good BEER Guide (not the Good Pub Guide - the paper edition was/is good for both) but it has very little support for beer-related interactions. It would be good to write notes against beers, and especially to be able to search on beer name, and on beer type.
Breweries are included in searches.
Improvements to user interface.
Updated pub/brewery information.
