Please email me if you have problems as I may well be able to help you, and if it's because of a bug I can then fix it.

Beermad mobile is designed for all beer-lovers who like to keep a record of the beers they've sampled. Whether you're a hard-core scooper or someone who likes to try different beers and keep notes about what you thought about them, this is the app for you. And it's incredibly easy to use.

Please note that import/export can only use whichever card in your device that has been defined as the "default storage location". This is due to access restrictions in Android to stop apps getting up to no good.

Please also note that there are no beers or breweries in the database until you add them yourself. An optional CSV file to import current regular/seasonal British beers will be available to purchase in the near future.

To people reviewing with problems (or anybody else having problems), please email with details so I can try to help/fix.

With over 1000 British Real Ale breweries producing over 10 000 beers every year, there's never been a wider range of ales available in our pubs. No wonder thousands of beer-lovers keep a record of the beers they've sampled.
Beermad mobile for Android is designed to make keeping those records even easier. Whether you're a hard-core scooper or someone who just likes to try a variety of ales and keep a note of them, it's designed to make your life easy.
You can record (and show) as much or as little about each beer and brewery as you want. The list below shows what you can record; you choose what to use, only the brewery and beer names have to be recorded.

Please note that this app does not come pre-loaded with a beer database. It will be empty until you start putting beers in yourself.

On some devices, the page automatically zooms annoyingly when you search for a brewery or beer. This can now be disabled within the Beermad mobile settings.
If you keep ratings, you can have a colour bar on each brewery page, giving an indication of how good or bad you've found the brewery's beers to have been (with optional alternative colour-scheme for colour-blind people.
Your existing beer list can be imported into Beermad mobile using a CSV file. All information is kept on your Android device and can be exported from the app either as a CSV file or a Beermad export file (suitable for keeping backups or copying beers to another Android device).
Beermad mobile can be used in English, Dutch or French (choose when you install it or change later).

Recently changed in this version

Changed ABV edit field to pop-up the full keyboard rather than the numeric one. Although this is not ideal, it's a workaround for certain devices with buggy numeric keyboards so that their owners can input ABVs

Long-press on the header bar pops up a clickable list of recently-viewed breweries.

A number of other bug-fixes/improvements.

See http://www.beermad.org.uk/mobile/changes.shtml for full list of changes.

    Brilliant idea, well executed app. Does the job and some! Look forward to next update. A-Z beer listing maybe?

    Can't fault the functionality of the app. Maybe worth making a "master" .csv available as a supplementary download for people who don't have a record of their beers as an excel file to import?
