Great reference, needs better search As a beer aficionado, I really appreciate the extensive reference. It's very comprehensive, and promises to be even more so when it is updated with the 2014 info. However, I am no expert, and because of this it would be very helpful if the search function could drill down through the tree so you could discover to which major categories your search term belongs. Wildcard searching would also be helpful as you may not know exact spellings of the thing for which you are searching.
Good if you don't mind the huge ads There is an enormous, flashing ad banner that is annoying as heck right on top of the screen. No option to pay to remove it, no way to get rid of it. It is a HUGE eyesore. I know you have to pay the bills, but don't ruin the app in the process.
Needs full text search This app is my goto app for BJCP references but there are a couple of opportunities for improvement. 1. Full text search. 2. Better back button action. Most apps default to previous view, but Back always closes the app. Very annoying.
Needs Updated Love this app. I use it frequently, however, it needs to be updated with the guidelines to change to 5 stars. I don't mind the small ad banner for a great, free app, but keep it current. Many brewers are excited to use the new guidelines.
Useful and fairly well laid out. However the ads are annoying and even distracting. Has anyone ever paid any positive attention to an ad on an app? The way the ads are in this app cost it (at least) two stars. Lacks SRM graphics for styles - does have an overall chart but SRM under style is a number range only.
Very useful, handy reference As a beer nerd and brewer, this comes in handy when explaining styles to people who are unfamiliar with the lingo. My friends and I love to introduce people to new beers and this is a valuable tool. I look forward to the next release.
