Why I like Brewskime the Social Beer Drinking App

I have been asked before by friends and even by random folks on Twitter why I like BrewskiMe, the social beer drinking app. Im going use this post to highlight some of the things I like that make me such a loyal user of the app.

  1. I like using it to learn more about beers I didnt know about before. For example when I post a status update about a beer it suggests similar beers. Another example is that when my friends drink something I can see it and check it out.
  2. Unlike some other apps out there BrewskiMe is a native app and LOOKS amazing and runs so FAST!
  3. Its the only social beer drinking app I know of that allows you to take pictures and post them with your status update
  4. I am a twitter junkie, BrewskiMe has support to post to twitter and also Facebook. When you post a status update and the brewery is on twitter it mentions them, then I know about someone else to follow on twitter for updates about their beers!
  5. BrewskiMe has the best User Interface out of all the apps I have tried. Every aspect of it from adding a new beer to posting a status update about the beer you are drinking is so simple and intuitive. Other apps left me confused and poking at them trying to figure out what to do, maybe even reading some docs to get that done.. Im busy drinking I dont want it to be hard or I wont use it..
  6. I think BrewskiMe is the only app that lets you select if the beer you are having is in a bottle, can, or draft. If Im wrong on this I sure cant find the feature in the others..
  7. BrewskiMe has a “Cellar” feature which is really awesome.. I add beers that I have (even homebrews) to my cellar. My friends now know what beers I have around the house if they want to come over and drink with me! Again if this feature is available in other apps I sure havent found it
  8. The BrewskiMe crew is also active on twitter. When you need help or have ideas for enhancements they are all ears. I found a bug once with timestamps, pointed it out to them on twitter and with in a week there was an update in the app store and it was fixed.

These are the main reasons I really like the app. I cant only point out the pros though.. I have to admit there are a couple things I would like to see changed. I have mentioned these to the team and they are addressing them. I will share those things with you too.

  1. Right now the app is only available on iOS devices. Thats no big deal to me personally but I do have a few friends who just LOVE Android and will not consider an iOS device.. The response on this from the team was that they would like to have an Android version but their primary focus is on the iOS platform at this time.
  2. You cant see the public status feed right now. I have been told this will be coming in the very near future

I hope this post will answer some of the questions about why I like BrewskiMe so much. If you want to be friends on BrewskiMe my username is errr, and on Twitter you can find me at @errr_

    Hey thanks for explaining. Now I’m just really jealous because I have Android and am not able to use this. I have been using something else (that I thought was brewski me) but stopped using it due to its total lame-ness. Fingers are crossed for a Droid version soon.

    Yeah I do hope they get one sooner than later. Android is the biggest market share but also the bigger pain in the ass to develop for. With iOS every iPhone is the same, every iPad is the same.. iPod Touch etc.. Where with Android you have so many makes and models so many different screen sizes.. Then there is the tablets..

    If you do happen to have an iPod touch you can use that though… When they do get the Android version be sure to friend me up!

    Thanks for the review Michael! While we are primarily focused on iOS development, we are working on a mobile web version for everyone else. Stay tuned! Keep the suggestions coming too!

    I’m impressed, I have to say. Really not often do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me let you know, you’ve gotten hit the nail on the head. Your idea is excellent; the issue is one thing that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I’m very glad that I stumbled throughout this in my search for something referring to this.

    Michael, just wanted to update you that the public activity feature is now available in the app!
