Just a bit too thin
I bought this app so that when I'm visiting London (not a city that I know in fine detail) I can find a decent coffee when I am out and about. But there are only 215 coffee venues in their database -- and since the app covers the wider London area (not just the tourist central bit) I have often been disappointed using this app to find that there is only perhaps just one coffee-shop listed within a mile or two of my current location. But as I walk round I see loads of coffee places in London, really loads and loads. I guess Allegra Publications is an offshoot of the Allegra organisation that is a sort-of trade association for serious coffee roasters/retailers, and so the only listings are those of companies that are paid-up members of Allegra. For a paid-for app, I think it pretty poor value: it doesn't really scratch the surface of the coffee-selling outlets in the teeming metropolis.
