After the good start, app not really improved. Searching is a fail. Postcodes find nothing even though gbg pubs are within 5 miles. Town/City search only returns pub names that are matching. The app seems to be flopping around. All online gbg users wanted was an improved Grenius app. This currently isn't working. A working search is a must have, why wasnt this tested at-all in v. 1.2.10? A while ago we received an email canning a successor to the Grenius app, I think it maybe time to resend that email.
The search function does seem to have improved, but is still poor compared to the Greenius app. At a push, I might find it just about useable. However, one thing that has really disappointed me is that the information from the old app has been carried forward in a useless form. I now have many hundred 'posts' telling me I have visited a particular pub, but no way (that I can see) to attach that to the pub's actual entry. Ditto the notes with dates, prices etc that I have made over the six years of using the Greenius app. Not impressed, but fortunately the old app is still working.
Supposed to be an improvement on the old app... its so bad and not a patch on the old one. So user unfriendly and lost the ability to keep all the pubs visited unless you post a visit. Doesnt recognise searches including London!!! And the pubs near tubes and stations was handy... if i could give it 0 i would!!! Waste of £4.99.
Search is rubbish, seems to get confused and tells there is no filtered result - when I've not used a filter. Don't like the non ability just to 'tick' a pub - you have to write a comment. The old app was better in these respects. I do like the online record keeping.
What an absolute disgrace, the so called "developers" should hang their heads in shame. I've now got the v1.2.10 update. The whole app is now probably worse than the previous versions. The search is completely useless and THE FILTER DEFAULTS TO "ALL" pubs not GBG pubs, it's a bloody CAMRA guide you idiots so why does it default to ALL pubs. Searching for Chester returned a useless list including The Chichester Arms in Devon, the word "chester" is not even anywhere in the listing. The app still doesn't work offline, I'd put money on it never getting fixed. I've worked in technology for long enough to instinctively know when developers are simply not up to the job. The only solution in the end will be for CAMRA to reinstate the previous version. It beggars belief how anyone could release something this bad.
Only 3 stars as the search only works on my mobile, not my tablet (both Samsung). Tablet says that Macclesfield not found whereas mobile gives me a list of pubs. Hmmmm. Will update review if anything changes. Update, search now works on my tablet, but why can't I enter 'pub visited as I could with the previous app. Not good.
