Bugs and location issues Great potential. However, I'm an ecologist and still see fewer bugs while out surveying. Strict location issues are a problem. The delay on adding beers to a venue is too long - if out drinking, is it likely you add a beer then forget to check it in until you have moved on? Yes. And I have added countless beers which haven't shown, that I forget about checking in before moving on to the next pub - which you cannot check in from. Untappd knocks spots off this. Could be so much better.
Missed opportunity Great idea but cannot connect whenever I'm in a pub. If I try and add beers once home I am unable to as I'm too far from the bar! Pretty much unusable. Also, vouchers are questioned in the pub (if connection is made to app) so just not worth the hassle.
Location and beer problems So, I can't check in to a pub unless I've got full gps signal. But I'm in a pub and I'll be lucky to have wifi let alone line of sight to gps satellites. Mostly it says I'm too far away from the pub I'm actually in. Can't check in unless there's beers already defined. Can't add a beer to the pub because the app crashes. Could be really good but massively let down by execution.
Was good not now I loved this app. Used it for ages and when I changed my phone I can not get password. Can't contact them to reset and reset password doesn't work. Wouldn't recommend if you ever choose to change you phone ever
I run a real ale pub and find this site a really useful way of keeping people informed of the beers and ciders that I have available. It also allows me to keep the coming soon, bottled beer, ciders and perry updated. I also like that it keeps a complete beer history for me. This is all very useful as our choice changes all the time. It is of course only as good as the info that pubs keep up to date and I know that some of my customers are put off using this site because although it works for a trip to me it is rarely up to date for the other pubs they use locally. The support team attached to the site are really helpful and very quick to respond. I am a big fan.
Was great, but..... Since Jan 2016 none of the new beers I have taken time to enter details of have been added. Similarly, I no longer receive acknowledgements. It strikes me that the owners have jumped ship and left this once useful app to die a death. What a shame...
