DrinksDeal‘s mission is to make it easy for iOS users find the best deals on food and drinks in their cities. Currently featuring Melbourne, Sydney, and Adelaide, this app helps make dining out a more affordable option.

Features:

DrinksDeal isn’t only about drinks, it provides up to date information on both beverage and food specials in a specific area. The app, by DrinksDeal Pty Ltd, does a nice job of making the search process as simple as possible.

Users can choose to filter search results based on deal type (beer, spirit, wine, cocktail, or food) and can choose to filter by “days available” as well (Monday, Thursday, Friday, or everyday).

This app uses your device’s location information to provides a map view of any deals in your area, and a list view option is available as well.

In addition to locating dining deals for you and showing you a map view of them, DrinksDeal also lets you rate deals and locations; these ratings can be viewed by other users of the app if desired.

As a whole, I found that DrinksDeal was wonderfully easy to use, but at the same time I thought that the limited number of cities that it currently covers was pretty disappointing. The “features” of this app will definitely improve when DrinksDeal simply adds more featured cities.

Appearance and Layout:

DrinksDeal’s appearance and layout leave no room for complaints. It’s designed simply enough to be easily navigable but complex enough to be aesthetically pleasing.

The black and yellow color scheme keeps things clean and coordinated without ever feeling overwhelming, and all fonts are readily readable on screens of all sizes.

DrinksDeal is an app that’s designed wonderfully intuitively, making it perfectly usable even on the first time. Again, the appearance and layout of this app are both excellently executed.

Value:

DrinksDeal is a free app and is well designed to really help you as a user save money. Its stellar design makes it easy to use with a layout that doesn’t make you waste time at all.

Unfortunately for those outside of Australia and not planning a visit down under, it’s not yet of much use. On the other hand, if you do live in or near those cities, or are planning a trip to Australia, make sure you have this app ready to go.

Its main drawback currently is its lack of coverage of a wide range of cities; with the only cities featured being the three already mentioned in Australia. The majority of iOS users probably won’t be able to find a use for DrinksDeal just yet.

However, if the developers expand coverage to include more cities around the world, DrinksDeal is likely to find a large dedicated following and for many be a useful, appreciated, and often used app.

drinksqrDrinksDeal requires iOS 7.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
