An Amazing Windows Phone 7 Application: Cocktail Flow

I’m proud to announce that the release version of Cocktail Flow, an application I’ve been working together with Distinction has been sent to approval and is planned to appear in the Windows Phone 7 marketplace in a few days. Before I go into any other details, watch the 45 seconds teaser video (recommended to do on fullscreen):

User Interface

The user interface has been designed to fit perfectly with the Metro interface of Windows Phone 7, while making the most out of it. It’s both visually stunning, clean, light and intuitive to explore. Some further screenshots:

Features

The application is much more than just a list of cocktail recipes, it also includes the following useful features:

  • Virtual cabinet – tap the ingredients (spirits, liqueurs, mixers) and the app will show cocktails you can create from them.
  • Shopping assistant – offers ingredients to buy to create further cocktails. Also includes a price indication estimating how much buying the offered ingredients would cost.
  • Step by step recipes – all recipes are broken down to simple steps, outlining the creation process in a clear way.
  • Categorized lists – cocktails are categorized by base drink (e.g. rum, vodka, gin) and also by type (e.g. classical, tropical, shooter) making it easy to browse related cocktails
  • Search as you type – start typing part of the name of the cocktail in any cocktail list and the list will automatically be re-filtered
  • Similar cocktails – all cocktail recipes show a list of cocktails you should try if you liked them.
  • Getting started guides – the application’s guides explain essentials needed to know to create delicious cocktails
  • Amazing photography – all images have been carefully composed to reflect the fantastic experience you’ll feel when drinking them!

Release Information

The application is to be launched as soon as it’s approved in the marketplace, estimated late October. The title is currently exclusive to Windows Phone 7.

Update: estimated release date is 21 October.

Hope you’ll enjoy!

    The point is you know how to deliver a polished product that makes sense. Good job.

    Looks great but you should add a “try & buy” option. I was interested in reviewing it for our readers, but I can’t buy every app that looks promising!

    Really amazing! The first app I bought for my WP7 (and I have checked a lot of them). Superb images, simple instructions and clear UI. The “Shopping recommendations” feature is helping a lot.

    This looks like a really nice application. By far the nicest UI of any cocktail/bar application. I have one question, are there planned updates to this, as I have heard content is a little limited at this point?

    Thanks for the comments!

    Dustin: yes, updates are planned to be published regularly. The first update with a new pack of cocktails is scheduled around the holidays and regular updates will be coming afterwards as well, adding more and more cocktails (right now there are about 150 drinks in the app).
