Overall this app is fantastic! Minor drawbacks are references to drinks in ingredient descriptions that are not in the app and not a larger variety of ingredients or specific types of them. However, the app is very well put together and the ability to add ingredients and recipies easily is a huge selling point to the app. It would be nice to see updates that add recipies and such in the future so the constant need to add custom things to the app is minimized but as said before the app is absolutely great as is.
Fine for basic bar The app is good for a very basic bar. You can check that you have vodka but if you have 5 kinds of vodka you have to create custom entries (vodka: Ketel One) but it only treats the item as generic alcohol It would be great if you could catagorize customization beyond strong or soft alcohol (like rum, liqueur, gin, etc). Also you can't easily show the amount in the bottle. Too bad. The overwhelming majority of my entries are custom so it feels like a miss but with a few more features it could be great.
I use this app a lot. I am only marginally interested in the simple recipes the app ships with, so at least half of my ingredients and half of my recipes are custom entered by hand, usually from a recipe discovered on the web somewhere. That is OK, and the customization is what makes the software useful to me. My main gripe is the app is completely unaware of the cloud. I am not aware that is it backing up my data. I can definitely not sync my recipes with my computer or any other device. I assume that when my current tablet dies, I will lose all my data associated with this app. There is no web interface for bulk editing recipes on a real computer - how could it, without any cloud presence at all? Share recipes with someone else? Nope. Print? Nope. Download in CSV or any readable format? Not that I know about. For cooking, I use a similar but much more powerful app called Pepperplate. I wish I could use Pepperplate for cocktails too, mostly for the cloud and web integration features. But Pepperplate is clearly specialized for cooking; My Bar Pro is definitely easier to use for cocktails specifically.
It's got potential but is missing things. No ability to modify the units list to add things like "measure". It would be useful to have the ingredients nested: Cognac > Remmy Martin, this allows you to have multiple different cognacs for example in your ingredients which are then recognised when Cognac is needed.
Sad "Bar" IMO, the lists of ingredients, liquors, etc is so small it's ridicules. I bought a "Bar App" so I could get cocktail ideas from it, not create my own. Sigh.. no idea how they got a 4.7. Don't waste your money
Bought this because I couldn't find a single app that let you journal your own recipes. Found I couldn't save the FIRST DRINK I TRIED TO ENTER because "Armagmac Blanche" wasn't recognized as a valid ingredient, even though it's not even that uncommon. Why do I need to only use the app's "known ingredients" to document my own cocktails anyway? The same recipe called for velvet falernum, a MUCH more common ingredient, and the app wouldn't let me do that either. Here's hoping someone makes an app for true enthusiasts, not this junk that was apprently targeting those whose idea of a martini comes from the back of the Applebee's menu. Avoid.
