New Mobile App for 2013 GABF

There's an all new mobile app available for the Great American Beer Festival (GABF) this year and it already appears to be significantly better then the one released last year.

An interactive map of the convention floor displays the locations of the brewery booths and allows you to add breweries to a “My Breweries” list which also marks them on the map, making it easy to remember and find the breweries you want to sample. And as you visit and sample, you can check off the breweries, makes notes and rate the beers you try. The beers being poured will be released on Oct 9th and its strongly suggested you update the app via WiFi before attending the festival (trust me, you definitely want to update before as the cellular reception and mobile data speeds is terrible in the convention center once the festival gets in full swing).

The app is available for download now from Google Play and Apple iTunes.
