  • Hmm.

    I’d like to start by saying that this is a well-designed app, and it allows you to visualize your liquor/mixers/etc. all at a glance. My biggest concern at the moment is that there are simply not enough recipes included yet. I’ve bought the $9.99 package with hopes that I’d find many cocktail recipes. I realize that more will likely be added, but it’s annoying to know that I have over a dozen liquors and only four recipes show up as possibilities. There are a lot of widely known cocktails that aren’t included, and that’s disappointing to see. On the plus side, the quality of the recipes seems to be good from what I’ve seen so far. The descriptions are also nice to have as well. I’m hopeful that the recipe selection will expand soon.
  • Great idea...

    ...however, the pixel aesthetic makes it incredibly hard to read or understand anything on the screen. It’s impossible to use with one hand as all of the actions are up top. Shame really as I would love to use the app if the design wasn’t so bad.
  • Hurts the eyes

    Sorry but the graphics in this app are so bad it’s painful. I’m not sure what the savings was or what you were after but it’s pretty much a fail. Also you can easily find any cocktail recipe for any given ingredient online so I’m not sure why anyone would pay for these.
  • Awful graphics, hot mess

    Down loaded and promptly deleted. The graphics are awful and hard on the eyes. It’s not intuitive. Drinks are very limited. No thank you,
  • Love this app

    Love this app. Love the graphics. Only thing I would work on is the filter screen. I would like to filter by ingredient instead of pack. I guess I know why you didn’t add it, because there are hundreds of ingredients. And liquor isn’t separated. Hmm tricky. Only annoying because I was looking for gin drinks and Tom Collins isn’t in the gin pack. Maybe add an option to hide partial ingredient recipes based on level. The filter screen is a little confusing. But otherwise I love the app and can’t wait for more packs! Mixel Maximizer is really clever.
  • I want to love this app, but I hate it, but I still use it

    The functionality is great, but please use modern graphics. The novelty of the 8-bit digital wears off in about 23 milliseconds. This app hurts my eyes. I love the functionality, but I hate looking at this app. The moment another app comes out that duplicates this functionality (as well as depth of recipe database), I will drop Mixel and move to something that doesn’t cause me to lose my vision. In the mean time, I’m begrudgingly using Mixel. Edit: Per the developer’s recommendation, I tried out Lush cocktails on the App Store. The recommendation was spot on as Lush is a much better executed app. It sounds like Mixel made a poor design choice early on and now they are stuck with it. Either way, I’m getting great cocktail recipes from Lush and it doesn’t hurt my eyes to look at!!
  • Great Concept

    This is a great concept. The graphics and fonts are a mess. Very hard to read. I’d suggest offering a non 8-bit option.
  • Only one complaint...

    Malört isn't available to add to my bar! As a Chicago native, this is an obvious oversight! I expect a Malört themed pack at some time in the future as an apology
  • Doesn’t support landscape mode?

    I downloaded it for my iPad thinking this could be a nice app for behind my bar, but it only comes up in letter and not landscape mode. Most people have a case for their iPad so that they can set it on a counter or something and read from. This seems like a fairly significant shortcoming in my opinion.
  • Garbage

    This app is no good. Contains very few liquor types. What app doesn't have hennessy? Fireball? Svedka?
