Bug doesn't appear to be fixed Often, Rate Beer's data is unavailable to this ap and displays a "loss of connection" message. I tried uninstalling the ap and reinstalling it, as recommended when suggestions to fix this bug in the past where recommended. Unfortunately, the bug is still there. If this issue were addressed by The Beer Experts, The Beer Expert would easily be a 5 star ap, and i would be glad to re-rate it when this issue is corrected and this ap is allowed to consistently perform as intended.
Was good, now it doesn't work Samsung galaxy s5 user here. The app was amazing and very useful. But recently since I got this phone it says lost connection to rate beer whenever I click on a beer. My Internet is fine. It happens whenever I use WiFi or 4G lte. Please fix and I'll change my rating
Great app I have loaded this app on three phones now. I would give it 5 stars, as the best beer app I have on my phone, if only I were able to backup my saved list of beers. Unfortunately, there is no such option. Each time I have loaded this app, I start from scratch. I have lost my list of beers tried, three times now. I would gladly pay a small fee for this app, if it only had the ability to save beers rated, and I don't want to save to another app (Rate Beer), hassle!
Love It Seriously awesome user interface. tested it against the most obscure micro-breweries i could think of, including on that has been in production for less of a year and does not yet even distribute at the state-wide level. Found all of them, including reviews from the local brewery/restaurant that has no distribution whatsoever. certainly a rating system would be a useful feature, but I consider this money well spent for any true beer fan.
Bot bad... Very user-friendly. Odd that there's no summary of all users' ratings. That's almost a must (see: Rate Beer , Beer Advocate, and other beer revise sites) etc... When that comes, I will see this as a five star!
Doesn't work Most beers that are scanned, said or typed do not show up on screen. Unfortunately, this app was a good idea but was not finished. I contacted the owner and he replied that he does not have a developer at the moment. A sad end to what could have been a viable app.
