Beer tracking app?
« on: March 19, 2010, 05:44:59 AM »
Does anybody know of a decent beer tracking app for either android and/or iphone? I'm looking for something where I can simply take a photo of the beer and add related notes.

One I saw recently for the iphone is: Find Craft Beer.  It uses the beermapping project.  Rumor has it that someone is developing it for the Android operating system too.

Those phones have webbrowsers so you should be able to use a site like beer advocate when mobile. I would be worried about losing my data if I decided to change phones or upgrade if the data is stored locally on the phone.

Not sure if t exactly what you are after, but Beercloud is an awesome app.

Thanks, all. I've done a little more searching and it looks like there's a ratebeer app that should do what I want. BeerPad also looks interesting, but a bit much at 5 bucks.
