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.

Is it impossible for me to get this on my I phone I really miss this app since I switched phones!

Love this App. All my iPhone buddies are jealous. However after this last weekend (March 5th) I now have one beer left on the St. Patties Day mini tour and my “mini tour” button on my app is grayed out. My beer count is correct, tour expiration date is correct (march 17th), but no clickie. I uninstalled/reinstalled, rebooted, updated, refreshed, etc. Still no love. Any ideas would be much welcomed.

Feel sorry for Old Chicago There are a few OC apps out there. This one is by far the best of them all. It it's unfortunate for both the app creator and the customers of OC that the corporation fails to see both the usefulness and the failed opportunities of supporting this. Seems Old Chicago has lost a lot of its regular customers due to large corporate choices being made without regard to its most loyal fans.

Great app. Just needs a little tweeking. I fails to update daily and can be up to a few days before it does. Could add the "money credited to you card" as part of the main.display.

Just got it--love the look! This looks like a great app. I'll update my post after a couple of weeks of use, but so far I LOVE IT!

App sucks. App loads up for first time use, then will never open again unless uninstalled and reinstalled. It can be a great app but obviously the creator finished tested it once and then moved on. Such a shame.
