TJCC's Review of BarkeepappReviewed on 9/10/19 1:47 PM
Six years later and I am still a fan of this app! There have been consistent improvements in functionality and usability. It has helped myself and my staff in better understanding our business. ----------------- I think this app is great! It's saved me a lot of time doing my inventories which I used to do manually. I use is every day for my top shelf products and once a month for a complete inventory. I had a couple of questions in the beginning so I emailed support and got a quick response which is very important to me. I look forward to seeing what they have planned for updates.

The app no longer gives you a preview report or does the totals for you. You now have to send it to an actual computer. And furthermore. Why can you use an email app for gmail or yahoo. Why does it have to be sent through devices default email program?

I bought it and loved using the app, cut inventory taking time in half but after the first month the App stopped sending the reports to my email. Contacted support who helped me but never got the problem solved. Hav deleted and reloaded multiple times without success. Was hoping update would solve problem but still won't send reports.

I have a restaurant with a smaller bar and only one location. I also have an iPhone 5 so the barcode reader is a non starter. I am waiting for the reader for the iPhone 5. We'll see how commuted the BarBoys are. The app has only crashed once. For the way they tout themselves, I might have thought that their liquor library was more extensive yet I find myself building their library for them. The app must have a field for vendors. In the setup, there should be an area to add vendors, the Rep, the phone number with your account number. This would be very helpful for recording inventory. Scan reading with the camera is painful! Since they don't offer a scanner sleeve there should be an option for us to get an aftermarket version that would work with barkeep. Finally, this app is worthless until I can transfer the inventory to a different iDevice like a touch. There must be a provision to move inventories between devices. When that happens, then you've got an app!

I was excited about buying this app to simplify my inventory keeping and get my liquor cost tightened up. However, buying a $34.00 app and then being expected to pay an additional $25. in monthly on line fees or a $200+ yearly rate seems to be a bit of a rip-off. With most apps you get an introductory online service and then hit up for fees. There is no way for you to register your account on line without paying the fee.......

I've been using barkeep for the last 3 months. I have found it has greatly sped up inventory time and is very accurate. I have noticed some bugs though since the release of 3.0. The app is crashing occasionally during inventory and running extremely slow at times. I find this happens more often when I'm running on an iPod touch(latest gen) compared to when I use it from my iPhone. Also I would like to see a few more of the features from barkeep online integrated into the app itself, primarily the ability to edit supplier info and run order reports. That would be incredible to be able to accomplish that right from the app. Essentially being able to take an inventory, run the order report, and email my orders right from the device. Perhaps this could more reasonably be integrated into the iPad version. I love the universal feature that I can finally run barkeep on the iPad now, but would love to see more use of the extra screen real-estate and power offered by the iPad. I can't wait to see what future versions will have in store.

This app is on the right path!! This would be a five star ***** app but they did not put in the leg work and research it enough to get perfect 5 *'s if all that the buyer had to enter was location the cost per unit and what they sold a shot of the booze! They have me spending to much time already entering in the data needed! This would be a diamond mine if it was R&D'ed a little more extensively! Since I'm the first review im going to give them a perfect score assuming the are still workin on it and a update is in the making? Score as of now is 3 *'s tops! I will leave another review if things change! Good work but half assed a bit!!!

I purchased the original version for the Iphone and online account and felt very excited about the features and possibilities; however, after having consistent problems with syncing, losing inventories, missing items. etc. I stopped using the app and reverted back to my excel perpetual inventory. The problem seems to be in using automatic sync on both an ipad and iphone. I actually had to re-enter my inventory twice after the first one was lost which resulted in quite a bit of frustration. Quite possibly the problem stems from a slow internet connection which you should consider before purchasing. I've also had issues with the app retaining bar codes of items I manually entered, incorrect scanning of beer bottle barcodes, also I've found the app to be cumbersome when doing multiple inventories in the same time frame you have to be cautious on the location. I did make contact with the designer and they seemed more than helpful in trying to resolve the problems; however, without proper resolution I have lost faith in the ability of this app do to what it promised to do. I have cancelled my online account. I really would like my money back as this item has not been useful for me.

I bought this app last month and used it to do monthly inventory at the beginning of this month. It's so simple to use after you have the items in the system. Cut down my inventory time by at least an hour. Terrific app.
