    Wow, outstanding! Only played around with the app for 5 mins but love the interface. After almost 13 years on BA, time to start reviewing!

    OK - I had forgotten about this coming...but it did say it would be showing up for Android after the Apple release.

    Is it in Google Play store yet? Feel like I am totally missing the boat here...willing to play with it to help the cause if I can get it.

    As someone who uses Untappd for convenience, this has me very excited. I much prefer BA's rating system and community, so I will definitely be using this. I've had over 2,400 unique brew's since I began using Untappd 2 years ago so I'll be a solid contributor.

    Cheers for making this happen! :beers:

    I haven't seen an Android email either. I spent the last couple weeks traveling, and would've been a nice time to learn/review the app.

    @Mike needs a bit more time before we start inviting Android users to beta test. We also made the call to extend beta testing.

    Updates to follow and thanks for your patience.

    Did beta testing just became available for Android? If so, time to renew my Society membership. If I renew now can I get ok the first Android wave?

    Is the beer app available yet? I don't see it in Google Play. I have an older model phone but usually doesn't matter when searching for apps.

    Too late? Highly subjective, and demand is high. This is also the second iteration of our app, which will bring users a more focused beer reviewing experience. And it's just the beginning.

    I'm looking forward to this. I used the old app frequently. It's nice to write reviews on the spot at tastings than trying to remember everything when I get home along with another handful of beers.Glad to see this is coming back, hope it turns out well.

    Hey guys, I just became a Society member yesterday and would love to beta test the new app, but wasn’t sure if there was somewhere specific I had to go? Or do I just wait for an email with a download link?? Hope you guys can help!

    So, is beta testing closed? It's been a couple of weeks since the previous post, and all of these links are just directed back to the first page of this thread. If the beta testing period is closed, that's fine. It's just not clear if I'm doing something wrong or not. I've missed not having a access to the BA app. It was sad that it ever went away in the first place.

    We've been adding new invites weekly. Next round is tomorrow. There's also a dedicated Society forum and thread for this.

    Thanks for the heads up! I'll take a look at the Society forum. I did get an invite for the app on July 1st. Unfortunately, it looks like this round was only for iOS. I'll keep an eye out for a round that includes the Android version of the app. I'm looking forward to it!! Thanks again.
