Terrible Terrible Terrible
This app, as another reviewer wrote, is a joke. If you are big on glossy graphics and really don't care about what you are mixing and drinking then this should be perfect for you. Otherwise... there are huge holes in what is offered.. not only is a Hurricane missing (a rum drink), but if you look under Brandy cocktails, the number one brandy cocktail ever, the Sidecar, is not there. What is there is a bunch of bright pictures, and bad recipes. I know my rum cocktails pretty well, and they absolutely destroyed that section. Maybe they got a rum and coke right. But take a look at the Mai Tai recipe... or any of the three, none of them are anywhere near right. What is also there is the opportunity to go spend $.99 on a bunch of "Premium" drinks which no doubt are as bad as the free ones. If you were to download this free app and then buy the premium offerings, you would probably be spending $50 or more... who knows, I didn't count em. If you do want a great cocktail app or two I recommend highly both Cocktails +, and Beach Bum Berry's Tiki+, both of which might set you back under $10. Cocktails + has ACCURATE drink recipes, and A LOT of them, Tiki + also has accurate, meticulously researched recipes for rum drinks, and a million of them. I will be deleting Cocktail Flow as soon as I finish this review. It's an abomination. Trust me.
Freemium works for this app
I think that the way this app is set up is perfect for drink recipes. Its super polished and the initial drinks for free are all the basic cocktails that you would want to see. Other drink apps have ton of recipes but you get lost in all the names which end up just being slight variations on the same basic drinks. If you're making cocktails who cares if you have a ton of recipes? All I wanted out of a mixing app was to be able to punch in what I have in the cupboard and see what drinks I can make. They do that plus make suggestions of what ingredients you can buy to increase the number of drinks you can make. If it takes having in app purchases to make it profitable for the developers, then so be it (which by the way is what everyone on the app store is doing now).
In terms of design this is a great app. The layout makes one feel as if there are in these tropical getaway lands and browsing is made quick and easy. Multiple options are give for users to customize the background of the application. Categories are divided and labeled well with search beig empowered by base drink, type of liquid, and even color. I have read some conflicting ideas on how accurate the drink recipes are but in terms of a easy to use aesthetically pleasing resource on what drinks to make and the types of drinks that exist there are few better.
