Beer-tracking app Untappd gets barcode scanning, hails an Uber

by John_A

If you’re a dedicated beer geek, chances are you’re using the app Untappd to track your libations. For the unfamiliar, the mobile software allows you to log and rate beers while following what and where your friends are drinking. With a new update to the iOS version, the app is getting a load of new features. First, there’s a new barcode scanner that’ll make searching for beers you’re drinking a breeze. Rather than having to manually search, all you’ll have to do is point your phone’s camera at the barcode on a bottle or can.

When you’re ready to head out for the evening, you can hail a ride from Uber inside the app by selecting the venue you want to visit. After you select the option, destination info is automatically sent to the transportation app. Other new features include friends lists to keep your feed tidy, support for 3D Touch, the ability to tag friends in comments and more. The truckload of new stuff is only available in the iOS app for now, but Untappd says the features will make it Android soon enough.

Untappd merged with fellow alcohol app Next Glass last month. In doing so, the folks behind the beer app promised to deliver new features and updates on the regular. Today’s news is certainly a nice start to the partnership.
