User reviews of CAMRA Good Beer Guide
Good app - better selection of pubs than the Cask Marque app. Can now install to SD card, so my main objection has now been removed.

Useless updates. I have updated to 2015 version but have lost 2014 as a legacy version (still have 2012 version though! ) and also lost visited pubs. Have emailed Greenius and also their owners but have not received any reply. Terrible customer service. Do not update app. if you want to retain any saved data. Really poor for a Consumer Organisation.

Could be so much more. Pretty poor really. Looks dated, brewery section is just a scrollable list, not even searchable. Needs a major redesign. Could be so much more. The fact that 'my guide' data isn't preserved when changing phones is a joke.

A real disappointment for any real beer drinker Yes it has a reasonable list of pubs. No they are not vetted or validated. Won't be reinstalling it.

PJS I wish I could search on the beer name and get info on it, brewery, strength etc. If you have no signal it refuses to show pubs when you search with the name of a town. Yet all the data is in the phone or on the SD card.......

Canarytops Really disappointed that there's no way of preserving "My Guide" details when changing phone. Have emailed developers but no response which I assume means there is no intention of providing this which makes the whole concept of having "My Guide" a bit pointless !
