Beer Tour

Beer Tour


Beer Tour downloads your current Old Chicago beer tour status onto your phone. To use this app you must already have an Old Chicago card and have registered it on their website.

----------

I know it’s been a long time since you have received an update, but hopefully this one should make up for it. This is a complete update to the Beer Tour app, front and back ends, with some more goodies almost complete after a little more testing. I’ve been tinkering with this for awhile, but a couple of users who reached out to me a few weeks ago gave me the push to finish this update. I’ve been using this release for a week now and think I have most of the bugs ironed out, but if you run into anything PLEASE email me so I can work on them.

Included in this update
-Updated for ICS
-Added Android Action Bar
-New Tablet Layouts (side by side display)
-New tab pager with swipe gestures
-New Backend Server (this helped with a lot of the items on this list)
-Mini tour names for each store, no more generic “Cinco #1” names
-Beer Details (Brewer’s description, ABV, categories, styles, etc.) I’m still in the process of populating this data starting with the current Minitour beers.
-Rating sync (this will pull your ratings back down to your phone after a reinstall or to another device if you have multiple. Hopefully no more lost ratings.)
-Updated login page to accommodate newer date picker
-Updated beer history logic (I had a user send in an excellent example of the app horribly determining his current tour beers. This appears to be corrected now.)
-App update notifications

Almost Complete Features
-Custom names for beers, this will allow you to submit Minitour and Rotator beer names for your location.
-Beer comment system
-Personal beer notes
-Picture submission system for bottles and taps
-Rework remaining screens for tablets

Removed for this release (I’m in the process of re-adding these)
-Beer sorting
-Sample data upload
-Ratings for Rotators (this will be reimplemented with the custom names feature)

Features In Progress
-Sharing (Facebook, Google+, Twitter, etc...)
-Beer suggestions based on previous ratings

Unfortunately all of this came at a slightly cost. Those of you running Android 1.5, 1.6 and 2.1 won’t be able to use this update. Originally the update was slated to support Android 2.1, but it started exhibiting an odd database corruption issue which renders the app useless. As of this update, only Android 2.2 and higher will be supported unless I can find a fix for 2.1 in the future.

Thank you To the developer of the app, thank you for your effort. This use to be a wonderful app. I have held on hoping you would get more support from OC for a couple of years, but it's time to let go. I'm close to finishing my 8th tour and I'll continue to waste the wait staffs time by asking for print outs every time I visit. So much potential...

Gonna miss this app. OC has dumped a bunch of money into their new app, but I don't think it's any better than this one. I'd keep using this one if it still worked. It was great and it's a bummer OC wasn't nicer to this dev.

Doesn't work anymore Had this app for awhile, worked great before I switched to my new phone. Entered my new card info and it won't accept it anymore. I know it's valid. Had my gf check hers and it won't refresh instead it force closes. Appears that the developers gave up on this app so don't waste your time or your data!
