Highball is for collecting and sharing cocktail recipes. Choose the ingredients, description, and custom drink image for each recipe. Share as a beautiful "drink recipe card" on your favorite social network. When you save and import a drink recipe card image, it becomes fully editable.
Minor bug fixes for iOS 12.
Ratings and Reviews
Good library, poor editor
Lots of apps provide recipes and images. A few allow the user to import or create recipes. This app is one of the few. However, I've found it difficult to use. I want to copy/paste the ingredients and directions, and edit the recipe easily. The app allows me to copy/paste, but it does not allow me to insert paragraph breaks. I've spent much time and thought creating a Google Doc with all my recipes. I'd hoped that I could easily inport or copy/paste all my recipes into the app, but I've found it to be cumbersome and tedious. The app does not retain any of the formatting when copy/pasting, and it does not allow me to add paragraph breaks in the directions. Not a good fit for me.
Cards/numbers won't load
I'd love to give a higher rating but unfortunately the app has always failed to read the QR codes on cards. Trying to enter drink numbers manually also comes up with a warning "this number didn't match any cards". Luckily it's possible to enter my own recipes manually, though the cards are one of the main features they advertise.
I wish there was a way to sort the cards into a few different groups - if I'm feeling like a rye drink, it would be convenient to pull up a list of my favorite rye drinks. Maybe by swiping left/right to move between multiple user defined lists of cards. To workaround this, I've sorted them in groups and altered the colors of the cards so that they're set apart visually.
I also wish there was a way to track the spirits you have on hand so that I could do away with a secondary app entirely.
I love the minimal look but nailing down the card loading, and adding a few extra simple features would make this a definite 5 star in my eyes.
Hi there runkasnorkraka! We were forced to change the database backend recently, which resulted in old exported cards no longer importing. However, if you re-export a card, it will generate a new code, which will allow it to be imported. Sorry for the trouble!
Your idea of card organization is a good one, and we hope to be able to do something like that someday. In the meantime, keep in mind the search bar at the top of the screen searches text on the entire card, so that includes drink titles, ingredients, description, and credit. So, if you searched for "rye," it will return every recipe with that ingredient. You could also add hashtags to the description as a workaround for sorting. eg. #holiday.
Hope that helps!
Has so much potential
These guys have the potential for a great looking and functional app, but this is clearly not a focus. End user experience is replaced by pretty finished cards. A paid model could offset development costs and actually turn this into a solid revenue center for the developers, BUT, they would need to work with beverage professionals and make this a focus product.
I recommend saving your time and build out your cocktails in Google Docs, Evernote, or even Excel. You’ll lose the pretty graphics but you’ll have easy sharing, you can copy and paste, use a computer or mobile device to enter, etc.
