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.

Bit basic Basic but does the job, better information and details needed. Hope to see pub pictures in future and a nicer ui. This could be a great app in future

Mr Essential information about where the best real pubs are compiled by local people for no financial gain. Can be updated free of charge when a new guide is released each September.

Only middling This could be such a great app, but it really lacks features: The fact that you can't search on a beer to find what brewery it comes from (like the beers index in the paper GBG) is poor and could be easily added. You can't add any comments on beers. You can't add any comments on breweries. You can't search for breweries, you can only browse the list of them. That said, it does list all the GBG pubs and help locate those closest - useful when travelling.
