Besides updates to content, and updates to features and functionality, the Tiki+ app has not been working correctly on some phones.

It's kinda like reading "Grog Log," and then reading "Remixed." There is an appreciable difference.

And, hey, the Bum needs YOUR ten bucks!

I still just have Tiki+. Is there any real reason to spend $10 more on the Tiki Total app? Does anyone have both or know what the differences are?



Ditto!

I think the Total Tiki has the same content + recipes from Potions of the Carribean?

The app information doesn't specifically state that the recipes come from the Bum's books, however that's gotta be the case. My assumption is that these are a cross-compilation of several of the Bum's books. Here's the description from the iTunes store page for Total Tiki:

Beachbum Berry’s Total Tiki is the definitive reference for classic and contemporary exotic mixed drinks on your iPad or iPhone.

This unique entertainment resource—the sequel to our five-star Beachbum Berry’s Tiki+—presents exquisite drink recipes researched and meticulously documented by the authority on Tiki cocktails and “Polynesian Pop” exotic drinks: Jeff “Beachbum” Berry. Beachbum Berry is the author of “Sippin’ Safari,” “Beachbum Berry Remixed,” “Beachbum Berry’s Taboo Table” and other books that have resurrected exotic drinks for the current day.

- Over 230 top notch drink recipes including authoritative recipes for the Zombie, Mai Tai, Painkiller, Scorpion and scores of less-known, brilliant refreshments—no bad drinks here!
- Over 200 inspiring vintage and contemporary drink photos!
- NEW! More than seventy new recipes added since Tiki+
- NEW! Check off the ingredients you’ve got, and Total Tiki will show you what you can make!
- NEW! Filter the recipes on multiple criteria with just a few taps
- Track favorite and flagged recipes
- Ingredient definitions included
- Universal app, works nearly identically on both platforms
- Dazzle your friends at your next party


So here are three reasons you may want the app:

1) The recipes are so dang portable, in your phone. If you're at a friend's house, or at a bar, you can pull up the correct recipe on the spot and go from there.
2) The cost is only $10. Most of us spend many times more than that on cocktail books, bar tabs, hangover remedies, and coffee during the year.
3) The quality of the material is superb.

So there you have it - portability and low cost and quality. It's a pretty good and hard-to-resist deal.

If the developers would ever learn how to code/program for Android, then they'd make twice as many sales!

Is there anything specific about the Android platform which makes that less likely? Or with the Apple platform which makes it more profitable or favorable?

Since the app publisher makes at least five different apps, I think you're right that they're missing out on sales. I really wonder why that is.

So glad I read this! At first I was like what exactly does that mean? So I explored a little and realized this is a feature I'd somehow overlooked all this time which is the thing I had previously been cursing them for not having! Yeah, you can add all the ingredients you have in your bar and it shows you all the drinks you can make but if you use the search bar and enter more than one ingredient, it will show no results. Like say I want something with lime, falernum and cinnamon syrup so I search those specific words in the main search field, it doesn't show me results for any drinks I can make. I didn't realize til right freakin now that there's a filter tab that lets you select the specific ingredients and then it'll show me I can make a jet pilot. So weird I never noticed that stupid little button. Seems they should have simplified the process by allowing more versatility in the main search button.

Now the only thing I wish they had was a rating system so we can check off what we've tried and notate what we think of it along with notes in case we make substitutions or improvements.

All in all, I think Total Tiki is a fine app and well worth the $10 if you don't already have tiki+, and the new features are probably worth your 10 bucks if you have the old version.

So I got the Total Tiki app on iPhone and I've been referencing it constantly. It has helped me round out the rum collection a little more, because it suggests ingredients to help you make more of the cocktails.

It DOES have the function to make notes about drinks and to create unique lists to add drinks to. So far, I've only created a "Drinks I've Made" list, to keep track of the ones I've tried.

I wish there was a way to rate the drinks, so that drinks could be sorted by user ratings, the way Grogalizer does.

Looks like the topic’s original question was about a classic cocktail app to supplement Beachbum Berry’s tiki apps. Classic cocktails were my gateway to tiki, so I’ve tried several different apps over the years, but I keep coming back to a few free websites instead.

Mr. Boston has digitized its classic bartending guide, and I find it very useful. One interesting feature is the ability to see how a recipe has changed over the years:

Robert Hess’ interest in cocktails, both classic recipes and ones inspired by classics, makes his Drink Boy site another great resource, and there’s a separate mobile version that works well on smartphones:

As an FYI, the Grogalizer is now smart phone friendly and still free. Works on all devices.
