iBartender Drink & Cocktail Recipes app review: become a pro

Reviews

Introduction

Do you want to be able to mix drinks and cocktails like a pro and save yourself a whole lot of money in the process? Instead of buying pre-made drink mixes you can do it yourself, save the money, and personalize your cocktails. The iBartender Drink & Cocktail Recipes app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone provides you with a huge selection of recipes that you can use at home. There is no need to be a professional bartender to use this app as it has been made very user-friendly with all kinds of features and tools.

Recreate Professional Cocktails at Home

This app offers a wonderful selection of popular and lesser known drinks and cocktails that you can recreate at home. It's of course fun for a night of entertaining or just great to enjoy on your own when you feel like something a little different. You will find recipes for cocktails, mixed drinks, and shots and you can even add your own ingredients and recipes. In order to find what you're looking for you can do a search by ingredient or name, or if you don't have a preference, just do a little browsing.

The best iPad apps for cocktail lovers

This app has recently been updated so it now supports iPhone 5's larger display screen. Despite the recent update, customer ratings are on the low side for this offering. It has a very basic user interface, doesn't have pictures for all the drinks, and doesn't have a ton of extra features. It seems as though all these factors are contributing to the customer rating.

Mixing Your Drinks

When it comes to using the drinks there are some features worth noting such as the shopping list tool. This tool will take a look at the ingredients you currently have, match them up to your favorite drinks, so you can then create a shopping list of ingredients you need to buy. Drinks can be rated by you and you can view the ratings from other people so you get an idea of what's worth trying. As noted there aren't pictures for all the drinks, about one third of the recipes feature a picture. This is a big downfall when you're talking about recipes as people like to see a finished product.

Other fun features include being able to shake your device for a random drink recipe, email recipes, and the fact that you can customize what units you want to use (metric or standard).

Final Thoughts

For me the iBartender Drink & Cocktail Recipes app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone feels like it is halfway there. Its content is great but it lacks in the presentation department and really needs to include photos for all the recipes.
