Ratings and Reviews
Loses brewery and beer lists
His could be really decent but it is a total fail because it loses the brewery and the beers often. Only remedy is to delete the app (and any data) and re-download. 2-3 other friends had the exact same problem and remedy. The only thing that worked was if you logged in with Facebook then your data was stored. Also the export notes worked well.
Make this work and it is a nice tool for planning your visit. Especially useful is seeing the winners and being able to flag them for a visit on Saturday.
Maybe 2019 version will be better.
I have been waiting for a couple weeks now for beer information so we can plan our evening at GABF and, guess what? It's now 2 days before GABF 2018 and still no beers loaded into the app. Highly disappointing since knowing what beers are brought by brewers helps determine what breweries to visit so as to NOT WASTE TIME drinking beers you don't like!!
I used it last year and planned which beers/breweries to sample according to our tastes and it made our entire evening an awesome experience. Would have like to do the same for 2018 but apparently the developers of the app can't get their act together. Don't waste you time on this app. It's garbage without the beers in it!
Is anyone else experiencing major performance issues?
I download the app, close some breweries. Close app. Upon next opening, all my selections are gone, brewery info will not load, the app says it wants to update with latest info- I tap that button but nothing happens. App is unusable. I’ve deleted and re-installed the app just to have the scenario repeated.
Pure shame as this would be very helpful this weekend and I’m sure a lot of time has gone into designing this app. Hope you can get the bugs cleaned up by Thursday!
