With Halloween season kicking off this week, Pocket Cocktails has updated its signature iPhone (99 cents) and iPad ($2.99) apps with a spooky collection of new drinks. Pictures are worth a thousand words, and Pocket Cocktails has got boatloads of them, in fact every cocktail in this app has an accompanying photo. So when preparing a Bloody Brain or Eyeball Martini there’s a handy pic to help illustrate how the drink should look as its prepared. The Random Mode turns the phone into a shaker complete with sound effects, a great conversation starter.
Hosting a big party? The bold, beautiful Cocktails HD is your ticket. Taking full advantage of the iPad’s giant display area, Cocktails HD delivers with mouth watering drink images and recipes along with everything needed to make your soiree a night to remember. Cocktails HD also includes a full bartending guide detailing how to prepare and garnish the libations. The latest update has 20 new high def Halloween recipes including the Bayou Slime, Draculade and if you dare, the Bloody-Tini ($2.99, iTunes)
Developer Dee Jones photographed nearly two dozen drinks in a makeshift cocktail kitchen in her downtown Toronto condo. Taking nearly a full week in the process, the new drinks are now available in the updated apps.
Jones is a developer at Pocket Cocktails Inc, an app development and PR firm with total downloads approaching 4 million units. These titles join an eclectic app collection including Knitting & Crocheting HD, Algebra, Dog Training, Yoga, and the workout app, SixPack App.
Cocktails HD has been recently featured in MacWorld and Entertainment Weekly magazines as a top iPad app. “The Full Screen original photography is the difference”, according to Jones. “There are a lot of apps out there with recipes, but not many that combine full screen photography of the finished drink the way we do”
Cocktails HD contains a cornucopia of cocktail content, including over 300 pages of bartending and cocktail information, and over 600 recipes including world-famous cocktails, wines of the world and over 40 easy-to-prepare food recipes, all with beautiful, original, full screen photography. Cocktails HD is available for $2.99 exclusively at Apple’s iTunes store.
