Whisky Companion for Android is a complete whisky and whiskey guide for the curious amateur as well as for the experienced collector.
The App comes with detailed information and pictures of more than 2.550 whiskies (bourbon, rye, malts, single malt, cask strength, blended, vatted etc.) from 273 distilleries in 21 countries including Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, England, Finland, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Japan, Netherlands, New Zealand, Scotland, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, United States and Wales.
The pre-loaded data for whiskies (Name, Age, Vintage, Bottling year, Alcohol strength, Bottler, Cask Type, Cask Number, Bottle Number, Bottle Size, Chill Filtered) and distilleries (Country, Region, Status, Visitor Center, Classification, Water source, Capacity, Stills, Founded, Owner, Address, Map location, Tel, Email, Web address) can easily be changed, or you can also create new whiskies and distilleries including your own pictures. Clicking on a picture of a distillery or a whisky will maximize the picture size.
As more data (content) is published, new countries, distilleries and whiskies can be downloaded to the app's database. These updates will not affect your user data in the database.
Notes from distillery visits can be added to each distillery, and detailed comments and tasting notes (Rating, Colour, Nose, Palate, Body, Finish) may be added to a whisky. All distilleries visited and whiskies tasted will then be available in the “My Whiskies” section, which also includes a wish-list functionality.
Most of the distilleries have map-location for integration with Google Map. When clicking on a distillery location, Map will launch, and this can be switched to Street-View. It is then possible to virtually walk around the distillery.
You can create your own tasting event with picture and key information. Then you can link whiskies to the event and add your tasting notes to those whiskies.
After installation of the App, the database should be downloaded over a network connection as the database is around 47 MB.
If you experience any problems using WhiskyCompanion, please notify firstname.lastname@example.org and we will help you. Please don't use Android Market as a support forum as there is no way we can contact you to help solve your problems.
On Android 2.0/2.1 will the database be placed on the phone. On Android 2.2 and later will the database be placed on the SD card if a card is present.
