Remembeer 1.2 was recently released and the main feature we added was a Beer Cloud. With Remembeer 1.0 anytime you had a beer more than once any additional information you logged about that beer the first time would be automatically filled in the second time you had one. Now with Remembeer’s Beer Cloud anytime anyone has had that beer you can get all of the information they logged, even if you never tried that beer before. Also if they only posted Brewery information, but you happen to know where that brewery is located you can add that. Which means that the next person to try that beer will get both bits of information.
We like to think that Remembeer’s Beer Cloud will eventually become a Wikipedia of beer. Someone could say that Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is a Lager, but over time so many more people would say that it is a Pale Ale that the cloud would (quickly, actually) determine that it is a Pale Ale and will ignore the Lager claim.
Another concern people may have is publishing their information to the cloud. We ask users if they want to use this when they first upgrade to 1.2 and anytime they want afterwards they can go to the Settings page and disable the Library feature. All you are publishing is the information you have collected about beer. No personal identifiable information is ever sent. In fact at this point we haven’t even developed a good way to visualize the data. All we want to do is drink better beer, and Remembeer it for later.
