Hi Guys,

I just introduced the Beertracker. This time I want to show you all the base features which are currently available if you use the Beertracker!

1) The login screen

To use the Beertracker you first have to sign in. To sign in you have several methods.

01 - Main page

 

  1. If you already have signed up you can use your username and password to login
  2. You can use your facebook account to login – The Beertracker asks for the permission of your email address and to post
  3. If you don’t want to use you facebook account you can register for a free account. You’ll have to sign up with your email address as username!

2) The dashboard

The dashboard shows you some statistics and offers other usefull features for the Beertracker.

02 - Dashboard

 

  1. Here you see statistics about the beers you already tracked and e.g. what the currently most famous beer is (Tracked by the most people).
  2. Here you can directly enter a beer you want to lookup and add it to your profile. You will get directly to the “add beers” page.

  • Google login
