Untappd Version 2
So are you ready to dive in to the new version of Untappd? I bet you are. Some things may have moved around, so here is an all important guide to getting around!
The Navigation hasn't changed too much, but we do introduce the "Discover", but is a listing of the tabs and their definitions:
- The Pub: Previously known as a "Activity", this the area where you will see your friends, global and nearby activity.
- Discover - this is a new tab for this release. You can see nearby friends, beer, and bars,
- My Tab - this your redesigned profile page
- Notices - This shows enhanced notifications and Untappd news.
In the old version, users would get ready upset when they couldn't find Anderson Valley Summer Solstice in our database, but when realized that they were on the wrong tab (searching for a beer in the friends area).
In the new version, you can access your friends by clicking on the Friends icon on the top left-hand corner on the Friends Feed. From there, you can you can view all your pending friend requests and current friends.
If you want to add friends - you can touch the "Add Friends" logo on the top right. Once you do, you can quick scan your social networks for common friends, and even share with friends on Twitter and Facebook (and email) about joining Untappd!
The Activity Feeds have totally been redesigned. You can see comments, toasts and photos in-line on your feed.

Global Trending Beers
This section has remained pretty similar to V1, but with the new design. it will show you most Micro and Macro trending brews.
Since Untappd is all about checking in, this is how you start. The page remain similar to V1, with both Recent and Suggested. We will automatically show you the last 5 of your brews. You can search for your beer here, or get suggestions based on your taste pallet.
You will notice the ARROW on the far right of every beer box, which is a new feature that we want to help with the check-in process. Tapping this arrow will bypass the Beer Page, and get your right to the check-in page.
