Connection 2/20/16: No matter where I am, what form of connection I'm using, this app never fails to fail. Constantly having "connection issues" or "a problem right now." I prefer their rating system, otherwise I'd only use BeerAdvocate. The app also lacks many of the features of the site, like looking up other people, forums, and even editing your profile. UPDATE: The update made the app even worse. Officially going over to Untapped because the RateBeer app is unusable.
Terrible update Where to begin... The colors and design are awful. Feels like something from the 90s. The new search is a jumbled mess of incompetence, where there is no organization to the results. Even after a scan, I had to scroll through the list to find what I'd scanned. At least the old app was functional and intuitive... My advice - Do Not Update! And use the website instead. This developer is clearly not interested in the app. If he were, he'd read the reviews.
Nice app! I don't know why is everyone complaining, it works fine for me. :) I like the app and I like the way it's designed, it's simple and very easy to use. I just can't find a list of beers, I have to search for them manually. But that's okay, it's still very good!
It is so strange when someone decides to take an already mediocre app and make it even worse. At least the old mediocre app had many very useful features. See, now they're gone! Features I very much liked having which I don't see in this version: Top lists, ability to browse places, ability to sort a brewery's beers (by ratings, date added, votes), ratings of places listed on the "nearby" screen, etc. (Excuse the harshness... it is likely the new app works better in some respects I have not discovered... for instance because I do not myself ratebeers. Oh, actually, I'm pretty sure the "nearby" functionality is better in other respects.)
Unable to connect The previous version worked ok but since I updated it cant connect anymore. I notice quite a few other people with the same problem ... there is something wrong with this app
Old app was much better The new app is deeply flawed and is missing so many features to make it pretty unusable.
- New local custom lists feature with stars and personal notes
- Added beer description and averages
- Fixed session timeout and other bugs
