Windows Phone App Review: RateYourBeer

Like beer? If so, take a look at the Windows Phone app RateYourBeer. It's a one stop source for beer brands and if you see something you like, you can chime in and share your comments. The app was originally released on the U.K. Windows Phone Marketplace and it has been recently unleashed on to the Marketplace in the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Germany and France.

RateYourBeer is our own Jay Bennett's home brew and was his first venture into Windows Phone development. It's a clean cut, straight forward app that presents a healthy amount of beer information. Oh, and as a way of giving back to the Windows Phone community Jay has open sourced the RateYourBeer API. Jay wanted to open up the API to everyone who might want to try their hand at Windows Phone development. You can find all the API information here at Jay's Blog and hit the break to learn more about RateYourBeer.
