Coffee Buzz Review

About two weeks ago I approached the fine folks at Kisky about getting a review copy of their iPhone application, Coffee Buzz. Happily Katie at Kisky got back to me with a promo code for Coffee Buzz.

I've been using it for about two weeks now and I can say that I'm pretty impressed. The user interface is nice and clean and the application doesn't do a lot but it does it well. Coffee Buzz can be used to find local coffee shops by accessing the GPS chip in your iPhone. It does it quite well, better in fact than other apps like Where. It even finds the Tim Horton's here at work.

It also has a tight integration with Twitter and allows you to select which type of brew you are drinking and tweet it and your location along with a short message. The only thing I don't like, and it is a minor quibble, is that tea is not one of the 10 built in drinks.

At $0.99 it is a useful app for coffee and twitter addicts like me.

Paul from Kisky here thanks for the review!

There's been plenty of debate around here about whether a Tea can qualify as a 'coffee' and if Herbal Tea Infusions really belong in a Starbucks 'Coffee'. We decided on balance Tea doesn't qualify.

However there is a little workaround. You can add your own drinks using the '+' button on the drinks list. With that you can circumvent our Coffee snobbery and add anything from a Coca-Cola to a good 'ol cup of Tea!
