UPDATE: Now that login isn't required I can use the app again and the improvements are great. Thank you!

I usually roll my eyes at one-star reviews of apps due to one little feature... But in this case it's an important one. I've been using this to find nice coffee shops for ages but now I have to link it to my Google or Facebook accounts, or give them my email address. Without that I can't see anything.

Maybe if they explained why this was necessary - what the benefit is to me - I might see the point. Otherwise, I can't see why this is necessary in order took view a map of coffee shops.

Developer Response

Hey philgyford. It's taken a few months but we've just released version 3.4 of the app which no longer requires a register/signup or login - you can just tap 'Skip & Discover' on the first screen and get back into cafe discovery.

Exciting update!


Excited about the changes. Clear UI improvements. Love the design. Happy to see more and more cities added. Don't understand the negativity. If you already had the old app, you get a year free subscription. It's the only coffee app that visits and revisits every cafe in it. Personally I'm happy to pay the price of one coffee a year so they can keep updating the app and I don't need to trust user generated content and waste much more money on bad coffee :-)

Excellent app for coffee lovers


This app has shown me loads of coffee shops that I didn't even know existed, some well-hidden ones just around the corner from where I work! Fantastic stuff! Keep it up!
Only suggestions would be 1) to allow users to add new places and coffee shops and 2) to allow users to add a short comment when they rate a place, so that they can say why they gave the score they did..... Maybe just allowing 100 or 150 chars, so people don't write loads.
