@RedPint Aquired by @Untappd- Best of Both Worlds
A while back I had posted about the beer mobile app battle that was going on between Beerby and Redpint (link). After that post I got an email from the people at Untappd and asked if I would try their app and compare it to the others. After a couple weeks of use I found that more and more of my friends (twitter, facebook, etc) were using Untappd. I had been a heavy RedPint user (note the founder emblem on the right of this post 🙂 ) but the problem was I had to go to two places to see who was drinking what. A lot friends were not using RedPint which made me sad because it had a great interface and allowed you to put photos up with your check-ins.
Untappd has grown by leaps and bounds over the past months and just recently celebrated their 1,000,000th check in! Along with this celebration came bigger news, Untappd recently acquired RedPint!
Things I would like to see brought over from RedPint to Untappd
-Photo’s with Check-Ins
-Ability to write a custom location (B’s House, In Bed, on a Boat)
-An Official iPhone app!
Let’s all congratulate the two companies on the news and spread the word to make the app the beer check-in app.
