Popular online café guide Beanhunter has launched an app for Android. For many, this news hasn’t come soon enough. There has been huge demand for Beanhunter to be available across a greater range of smartphones, with Beanhunter staff being inundated with daily emails insisting on an Android release.
Beanhunter allows users to review and rate their favourite cafés around the world and has enjoyed years of success with an iPhone app that has had over 30,000 downloads.
The café review app will be the first of its kind on the market for Android and is a boon to the existing catalogue of Android applications. This development is the latest challenge to the supremacy of the iPhone by the Google-led mobile operating system.
For the founders of the site, this is the next step in a growing suite of mobile apps. As Beanhunter has become a standard feature in any cosmopolitan iPhone, an Android app was always part of the company strategy in making Beanhunter as mobile as possible. This is a cause for celebration for café-loving Android phone and tablet users who were previously unable to download Beanhunter from the Android Marketplace. The Android app is even more refined than the iPhone app and will allow users to find coffee all over the world.
All of Beanhunter’s content is user-generated, meaning that the app is constantly up to date with the latest information and up-to-the-minute reviews of thousands of cafés worldwide. Beanhunter is regularly used in 51 countries including Australia, the USA, the UK, Hong Kong, Singapore, New Zealand, The Netherlands, Canada, and Norway.
"Possibly the most important app you will download this year" - The Daily Telegraph on the Beanhunter iPhone app.
"A slick-looking site that seems to have selected Melbourne's best coffee hot spots. It features user reviews, an overall rating and the distance of the cafe from your current location. 8/10" - The Age on the iPhone app.
