Ratings would be enough.
I just can't stand using the ratebeer app any longer.
With my trading addiction...location of the nearest UPS/FedEx facility.....
But you don't need their app to tell you that....
After reading a chunk of the thread and the side link about the Kickstarter, I have no further suggestions, but want to state my support. Looking forward to hearing about the pledge levels.
I'D LIKE TO KNOW WHY I WASN'T OFFERED THE JOB OVER THIS MIKE GUY, DO YOU HAVE AN APP FOR THAT?
J/k, I honestly think just a phone browser compatible version of the site would be sweet. Especially if it logged you in when you opened the app, instead have having to enter the login screen. I believe you're at like 99.9% of my wishes. Thanks for the good work
Can't you just have them look up your profile and see those?
If beeradvocate finally had an app, this would make things so much easier for me. An easy way to attach pictures to the review would be fantastic.
Integrated BJCP/World Beer Cup/GABF style guidelines.
Any update on this?
A native app will only bring you a world of hurt imho.
Hopefully for you guys, the new guy Mike has CSS skills equal to his PHP skills, as he'll need them to develop a responsive site. Everything folks want from BA (well...almost everything ) is already right here on your server.
Why not customize the on-screen render to device size. No worries about brand or manufacture, no having to code in two more languages (Objective C and Java), no developer fees to Apple, no approval worries for alcohol related content, no worries about hundreds of different Android implementations and different APKs for different manufacturers, the list goes on..........
One site to rule them all.
robinhoover has a point.
Regardless, I don't care how it gets implemented, but I'd certainly like to check reviews from my Android while out and about without having to pinch and zoom the regular site just to do searches on a beer name.
A barcode scanner would be nice too!
So, a lot of pages in this thread. Sorry I did not read all posts. But I would like an app that lets you report what beer you are having at a bar... browse nearby bars (with a map view)... see what beers have been reported there... basically crowd-sourcing the beer-lists of bars across the country. I want to be able to search for a specific beer and see nearby bars serving it... as reported by the crowd-sourcing. And of course the app should have the expected beeradvocate functions (ratings, reviews, "hads", etc.)... tied into my website profile.
You can bypass a lot of the pain on native apps by rendering most of the UI in a web view. Fragmentation becomes far less of an issue, as long as the device has a working browser. Two extra codebases obviously isn't ideal, but you're limiting their size with most of the UI being server-rendered.
But still using a native app lets you code important and performance-critical components in native code. A map that accesses the user's location to show nearby BA-rated locations and their ratings(as mentioned above)is one such example. Other things like camera integration, push notifications, and any sort of local database also need a native app.
Any word on the mobile app status? I've been using Untappd more and more for the social features, but BA for my cellar/wants/reviews etc... Just wondering, would be nice if the two would merge
Something like this would be awesome. For me personally, I'd love to have the option to quickly rate beers 1-5 stars and to add beers I've already tried or want to try to a list. These two things would make the BA App perfect. It's already an amazing site as it is!
I don't know much about websites and apps, but it would be great if you can have a picture file to archive all your beer porn and see what others are drinking and cellaring.
Any word on the status of this?
