Excellent App with superb support


This is a great app. The support is outstanding. You will be able to easily add custom drinks. You are also able to search for drinks based on what you have available. That is a really handy feature. There is a huge list of very tasty drinks which can easily be searched based on various criteria. In my opinion, this is the only bartender app you'll need. The author of the app is also always making improvements and adding new drinks to the list. Why download another drink app when this one has it all.

Missing two features to put at 5 stars


Love the fact it gives you drinks you can make with what is on hand and can add custom
ingredients and drinks. The only thing missing is:

A list of ingredients that'll complete uncompleted recipes missing 1 ingredient. The feature with favorite drinks adding to the shopping list is near that point, but i'd like it for drinks I haven't favorited yet.

The only other thing is that the random drink function would be great with the Drinks You Can Make list. It only works for the Browse All list. If it is supposed to work with Drinks You Can Make then maybe there's a bug because it does not work for me.

Anyway, add those two features and its a 5 star app. Its very favorable compared to Liquor Cabinet, which is clunky for adding/altering recipes and adding ingredients, and has no random drink function, too.

Maybe the look of the app can be a bit better too. But thats a nit picking.

Where is the search?


Feature only works if you type in the whole name. For instance if you're looking for Cosmopolitan you have to know how to spell it because if you type Cosmo it doesn't find cosmopolitan. Are you kidding me?

Developer Response

The global search feature is a relic of the first version of iBartender, released in 2008. At the time, whole word matching was the only way to achieve reasonable performance when searching through a large dataset while also displaying the results in real time. Now that hardware has sufficiently advanced, this feature will be revisited in a future update to allow partial matching.
