Features & Use

 If I was forced to test every one of the 400 cocktail mixes for this report, I would be lying passed out on the floor right now in a sorry yet blissful state. Thankfully for me and my liver, I'm sticking to the technical aspects of this app.

Using this app is a real piece of cake, so let's go straight to all the available functions. Depending on your personal tastes, you have the option of finding your favorite drink by browsing through the extensive selection of cocktail categories.

The app can recommend a drink:

  • that’s hot right now
  • by my location
  • by what’s popular
  • by taste
  • by color
  • by background volume
  • by time of day
  • that’s a classic
  • that’s chic
  • with an edge
  • that’s non-alcoholic
  • that’s quick to make
  • by the weather
  • by glass type
  • by bar vibe
  • by an absolute flavor
  • by spirit type
  • based on interest
  • surprise me
  • Recommend my drinks to friends via Twitter or Facebook

This category selection is really amazing, especially the "recommend a drink by my location" feature. Using the phone's GPS signals or Wi-FI connection, the app looks for drinks specific to your area. The epitome of cool is the app's "recommend a drink by background volume" feature, which evaluates the volume of your surroundings with the phone's built-in mic and then recommends some fitting drinks for the ambiance. How sweet is that?!

By clicking on the "I'll have one button" below your selected drink, you can update your Facebook or Twitter status. Let the whole world know what drink you'r enjoying right now! In your settings, you can always adjust your Facebook and Twitter log in information as well toggle the sound.

A simple click on any cocktail reveals its detailed recipe with all the necessary ingredients.

With the "World" tab you can see what drinks people are enjoying live around the globe.

The search function is also totally flawless. You can search using key or simply browse by categories.

Bottom Line:

Amazing app for cocktail lovers! It's good to see that they've gone way beyond vodka, to include every type of liquor known to man. Everyone's guaranteed to find something to suit his or her taste.

 

Screen & Controls

An extremely slick design. It gets all 5 stars - no questions asked!

The controls are easy; just slide through all the different categories with your fingertip. 

Speed & Stability

Despite its 9MB size and the fancy graphics, this app manages to run pretty smoothly. Older Android models may, however, experience some difficulties loading this app.

With the latest updated version of this app, I didn't experience a single glitch.

Price/Performance Ratio

Drinkspiration by Absolut can be downloaded for free from the Android Market.
