We’ve all been there. We’re looking at a new beer in the store, wondering whether or not the brew in hand is good, bad, or somewhere in between. I use an app called Untappd to see what my friends say about particular beers. Well, there’s a new player in town called Letsee that is trying to make beer analysis even easier.
The app uses augmented reality give the user instant information on a bottled beer in your position. Simply hold up your phone’s camera and you’ll see an on-screen analysis including basic description, alcohol percentage, country of origin and user review hashtags such as #tasty or #hoppy.
Letsee Beer comes from Letsee and uses your phone’s camera to scan the labels and shapes of beer bottles and cans.
What’s great about Letsee, at least, looking at the web coverage, is the ease of use and quickness of the app in giving useful information with little user interaction.
Being quoted in TechInAsia, founder Ahn Sangchul says:
“By using the more intuitive AR interface, the users will be able to focus on the user-created content itself instead of getting distracted by cumbersome app interfaces. People may enjoy sharing their drinking experiences with others using our service, and we hope to encourage them to love beer even more.”
