I think there is. If someone is going REALLY way back and toasting every. single. thing. I’m not sure there is any point to that other than wanting to get the person’s attention REAL bad for whatever [horny] reason.
I am not one to be afraid to nerd out about Untappd. And I’d be willing to stay on the Untappd App longer (which is what all sites and Apps want from you) if the Untappd Overlords would add these five things.
1. Make It Easy To Do Late Check-Ins.
Half of my check-ins are after the fact. You know, you’re in a situation (like going to dinner with non-beer geeks) and you don’t want to be on your phone, checking in beers. Or you are partying too hard and don’t want to stop and use Untappd.
But later, you want credit for having that beer. So you check-in even though you’re not currently dinking. There is never been a button or added feature to idicate this. What I do and most people do is indicate in the comments that it’s a late check-in. Not the worst thing in the world but also slightly annoying.
2. Give Us One Minute Of Video.
Is that too crazy? Instagram has video so it’s obviously possible. But do I really want it? I don’t have the energy to watch IGTV videos. Barely can watch Instagram Stories.
So why am I asking for video on Untappd? It goes back to wanting to not leave the App. Being able to give a one minute review of the beer could make things more interesting on Untappd, that is for certain.
3. Simplify Finding People.
Take away the extra step in searching for users. When you first search a user name on Untappd it searches through your current friends. If you are trying to find a new-to-you person, you then have to hit the “add” button at the top right and search again. Just make one search, yeah?
4. Change “Beers” back to “Uniques”.
On your profile, it used to compile your basic check-in stats as beers and uniques. Beers is how many times you checked in a beer. Uniques are how many different beers you’ve had. Now, mysteriously, it’s “Check-ins” that represent the number of beers you drank and “Beers” for the number of unique beers you’ve drank. Weird and lame.
5. Give Us A Global and Local Leaderboard
A, Most Untappd Check-ins leader board. This could get ugly. But I really would like to know who had the most check-ins on Untappd. I can guarantee it is not someone that works at Untappd.
Maybe something like Reddit does where you can be upvoted for how good your reviews are or how interesting your check-ins are.
Anyway, Untappd. I’ll keep thinking of junk. You keep listening. Leave a comment if there is something you would like Untappd to do.
Yes, of course, but what will be in the update? Would they be making a big deal like this over a new feature? That would be lame. Letting you send pics in your DMs would not be announcement worthy.
In fact, a handful of new features is not hype-worthy too me either.
Untappd Buys-out Another Thing.
This could be it. Credit @beardedbrewer87 for this idea. They buy another social app that gives Untappd a whole other level of … social, stuff.
Lord don’t let it be that they bought a wine check-in app and now you can check booze and wine too. We might riot.
Boring. If this is it that is so boring. Beer festivals are fine but not fine enough to hype it up in this way. Pretzel necklaces are not everything.
Dude, I like badges as much as the next user but if this is all about badges then screw you guys. In fact, there had better at least be a “Got Screwed” badge, if this is just about badges. We don’t need no stinkin’ badges.
Clueless In Fresno
I am going with an update to the app that adds a major feature. What that is I have no idea.
