Are there any good beer apps for Android?
« on: September 08, 2012, 05:46:05 PM »
I have beer cloud. But I'm looking for an app that helps me keep track of commercial beers I like and don't like. The latter is pretty important since I have forgotten that I didn't care for a particular beer and bought it again.

I use Beer+. It has a barcode reader, photo incorporation, and lots of areas to comment on the different components of beer. It also has a 5 star rating system (and half-stars) that helps me out.

It depends on what you want to do. I like to add my own photo and include beers that might not be in an app's database (like homebrews). I recently started using Evernote Food and dig it so far.

Pintley?  Haven't used the mobile app yet, but seem to have potential.

I use untappd . it let's you rate the beers you drink, log where you had them, take photos of them, find your favorite beers nearby, suggests other beers you might like and is also a bit of a game as you earn badges for completing certain challenges.

untappd seems the way to go but I'm too lazy to track my beers these days.
Heck yeah I blog about homebrewing: Brain Sparging on Brewing but I'm also a lawyer: The Kielich Law Firm

Another untappd user here. I like the badges, makes it into a game, though I'm not proud of a few I've gotten that make me look like I have a drinking problem...:-/

Just downloaded untappd the other day when a friend mentioned it has a decent beer finder function. It was cool that I could enter my own homebrew and homebrewery.

Ooh I didn't know that about the homebrew...
