Best Windows 8 Apps
29 December 2012
Great interface when the amount of items are low. Needs a way to easily skip, maybe like Android does via first letter on its contacts screen. Also could use more sophisticated features to really be stellar: 1) could use Favorites and My bar to show missing ingredients. 2) could be more intelligent about exchangeable ingredients: grand Marnier can be swapped with triple sec which can be swapped with Contreau.
Great job devs, keep it up! We need more apps to raise the bar like this.

I have tried several cocktail apps on iPhone, android and windows phone, this one is simply the best.
It's simple, easy to use and pretty.

I wish I could search or sort the drinks in my "cabinet" other than just all of them alphabetical. Also need to add more liqueurs.

I've loved Cocktail Flow since I first discovered it on WP7. I hope the "packages" feature of the mobile app is brought to the Win8 version, because I like having themed drinks pop up every now and then for download.

This guy is so good at UI! Beautiful layout, chock full of info, and my favorite part is where you can check off the ingredients you have in your house and it'll tell you what drinks you can make.

Badges? We don't need no stinkin badges........
Also need to add more booze..... Flavored vodkas, absinthe.

No only does this app look great, but it is really functional. You can choose what supplies you have, and it makes a list of the things you can make.

Price, graphics, transitions, "My Bar" to track what you own, "My Bar" shows bottle images to help find items, categorized drinks, list only what you can make from "My Bar"
* "Back" button (e.g., mouse button 3) fails to navigate backwards
* Snapped view of "My Bar" has no way to list possible drinks :-(
* Recipes to show bottles for ingredients (so can find/buy) or at least link to the pictures
* Hands-free / voice control / voice search

This is a great app. It would be awesome if my cabinet and favorites were stored in the cloud and synchronized across Win8 and my phone. I never remember which one is up to date.

excellent app for beginners to experts in liquors. If the amount of calories for cocktail can be ad to the app will be even better. Thanks

Recently updated, but it still needs a way to add your own recipes. We'll see if this new version gets more constant updates.

What kind world is it without margaritas?
The app is very well written. It has great graphics and operates very smoothly, but the drink library is limited to the well known and popular. It has no way of adding your own concoctions or sharing them with the Flow community. This would be a great upgrade. Needs to add menu of functions and better search filters.

Needs more recipes and would be great if it let me add my own.
Great App. However, a lot of the ingredients are only used in 1 drink. It would be great to see updates with more recipes to take better advantage of these. Also, it would be great to have an option in the area that is filtered to your bar stock to have an option for alcoholic and non-alcoholic options. On the whole though, this app is well polished

it would get 5 Stars from me if it allowed you to save your own drinks rather than be limited to what Distinction LTD provides.

marvelous, just like phone version.

Love the animation and clean look. Easily one of the best apps on Win 8. but need more recipes

This app is gorgeous.
The animations, and flow are just perfect. It is the best example of a Metro app I've seen yet.

I am in love with this app. Not only does it have your favorite drink and teaches you how to make it, but it has other amazing drinks that you've never heard of but taste oh so good. It really came in handy over the holidays when I impressed my family with different cocktails that they were in love with. Download it now.

Need to have better breakdown on drinks and mixers, like lemonade vs lemon juice. needs better breakdown on liquors and more selection. Good rum breakdown.
Big thing I would like to have is the ability to turn off certain drink types, such as non-alcoholic. If I'm looking for a new drink recipe from my cabinet, I find something that looks good, but it's non-alcoholic, it's annoying.

They should release 2.0 as a separate app and allow 1.0 to still be available for download.

Used to be the most beautiful and functional app on WP and Windows marketplaces. Last update made for a clunky experience. I don't understand why the changes were made.
Also, descriptions for cocktails are pretty poor. Mixes up what you're supposed to put in the glass and in the shot glass for "bomb" drinks.

App is exactly what a windows 8 app should be, clean, fluid, easy to use, with high visual content. Only thing lacking is the number of drinks in the database is still low. This, I would assume is the easy part, as the interface and visuals are all spot on! - Updated 12/30/2013 - Badges are Awesome addition to an already great app with beautiful pictures, and variety of options for finding the perfect drink(s) for your next get together, or just trying to finish off what's in your pantry

Haven't used the app for a while, noticed updated ui, went to make my wife's favorite Cocktail - Lemon Drop. No longer exists in the app....I think the content should have priority over new ui.. sad, I liked the app as it was, will now need to look for another that has the most common cocktails included.

Excellent looking application and has a lot of useful drinks

This app is gorgeous. An impressive amount of information presented in an appealing way with an intuitive interface. Great!

Please add tequila drinks to the recipes please!!!!!!!!

This app has a beautiful, responsive design and is amazingly full featured for a free application. I would gladly pay for this app if they wanted to take it pay-to-use, but am thrilled to pieces that it isn't!

Visually, it's gorgeous. Not only that, but the cabinet feature comes in really handy when you're looking for drinks with ingredients that you have on hand.
