If you are like me you love using Untappd to keep track of the beers that you’ve drank. It’s fun to rate beer, post photos and of course earn those badges! If you’ve been keeping an eye out on your email you know Untappd merged with Next Glass (see details here) which means more resources for bringing on more awesome features. Today they have announced their first round of additions to their app. Unfortunately it’s rolling out only on iOS now and will follow on Android soon according to Untappd.
It’s been awhile since we last launched any major new features for Untappd. We’ve got a lot to make up for. Luckily, we believe this release will do just that and then some. We’ve been working pretty hard on this release over the last few months and are excited to share with you what we’ve come up with. Unfortunately, this is currently only available on iOS, but will be coming to our Android users soon!
Here’s what you can expect to find in this release:
- Untappd Groups
Have a lot of friends and can’t keep up with everyone? Create a group, then choose the friends you want to view and keep tabs on the beers they drink!
- Search via UPC Scanning
You’ve been asking for it and it’s finally here. Find your bottle or can faster by scanning the UPC.
- Friend Tagging
Always wanted to tag your friends in your comment? Simply the tap the “+” icon in the comment box and tag the friend you want to notify in the post!
- Get a Ride with Uber
You can now request a ride with Uber to any venue within Untappd. If you have Uber installed, it will automatically set the destination for your trip!
- Enhanced Notifications View
We now group your notifications together by check-in and by type so it’s easier to follow.
- Venue List
See all the venues you have checked into on your Untappd account.
- 3D Touch for iPhone 6s
Find nearby bars, check your notifications, or search for your beer all from your home screen. Simply launch the app the first time after updating to enable this feature!
- Quick Location Adding
We now display the locations nearby below the “Add Location” button on the check-in screen, so you can quickly add it to your check-in.
- More Fixes
In addition, there are a number of both core and UI fixes included!
