Untappd- the "beer Facebook"
Has anyone else been using this app? The interface, check-in, and commenting seems inspired by FB. I'm actually enjoying tracking what I'm drinking and reading comments on beers from friends. But haven't really used any of the other features.
I was standing in line at a brewery and this woman in front of me was on her phone making a entry for untapped.
To make conversation I said to her are you logging in to untapped. She said yes and asked me if I was on untapped.
I said no, she proceeded to tell me only real beer connoisseurs
are on untapped. I use this quote all the time with my friends guaranteed to bring a laugh...
As someone who rarely remembers what she drinks, I find Untappd (beer) and the Vivino (wine) both quite helpful. Don't post on facebook and rarely look at what my friends are drinking, but I do like these apps for keep track of what I've drunk and where. Especially at beer tasting events. I haven't followed any of the recommendations, but I do look them over. I like that Untappd has everything from Coors Light to my local brew pub's latest beer Hay is for Horses.
If I was someone who drinks and drives I would think twice about using an app that tracks my drinking habits. But for a non frequent drinker with a bad memory it works for me.
Not a user, I keep track of all the beer I've had in my head - I guess you just remember the important things in life. ;-)
I do find all the twitter cross-over posts from untappd annoying though when they are devoid of comment/opinion. Like any one wants to know what beer you are drinking - adding your opinion at least makes it a little more interesting.
