Treating your friends to a glass of ice-cold beer will soon be made easier, as Buddy Beers prepares to launch on Android at the end of the month to complete its App family.
The Berlin-based startup with a five-strong team, landed on the iPhone back in February this year, and has since enjoyed a steady stream of downloads.
“Android and iPhone both have good market saturation, but more and more Androids are being sold over iPhones these days and it's a good match for our market in particular” says tech founder Travis Todd.
Buddy Beers, which boasts a network of more than 200 participating bars across eight countries, allows users to buy someone a drink by purchasing a virtual drink and sending it out via email, SMS or Facebook. The recipient simply presents it to the bar and 'voila' - the beer is there in the foamy-flesh.
The company will celebrate its launch at 1820 Bar Berlin on March 31 with a line-up of DJ's and prize giveaways. Check the details below to join-in:
