DrinksDB iOS app

Well here’s one I don’t get.  It scans beer barcodes and links them to BeerAdvocate.  But of the seven beers I tried it with, including a 24 oz. can of Miller High Life my brother got me as a joke, it found exactly 0.  And you can’t manually enter beers, just scan barcodes.

BeerAdvocate really needs to get moving with their supposed iOS app.  I read some references to a an iOS app that did indeed link to BeerAdvocate, but apparently the bros killed it.  And the screenshots I saw looked EXACTLY like Beer Buddy, which links to RateBeer. Interesting.  I can only assume that Beer Buddy originally used BA, but after being denied access, switched to RB.
