  • Craftt is excited to announce the launch of the Great Canadian Beer Festival app on iOS and Android! see more

    Victoria, BC, September 6, 2016 -- Craftt is excited to announce the launch of the Great Canadian Beer Festival app on iOS and Android!

    The GCBF app was designed and built in record time by the Craftt team. Taking it on as a pro bono project, Craftt’s developers created the app in an effort to help promote and support this fantastic event. The app is available for download through the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.

    Hosted at the Royal Athletic Park in Victoria on September 9th and 10th, the 2016 edition of the Great Canadian Beer Festival will feature over 60 craft breweries and 2 cideries from across the country. The GCBF app has been designed to enhance the experience, allowing users to browse the vast variety of craft beverages available. Users can create a list of the brews they’re interested in trying or have tried and are able to save their favourites to easily access them when on the hunt at their local liquor stores.

    In an effort to get more people connected with the amazing craft brewers and breweries that call Canada home, the GCBF app includes a list of all of the breweries, beers, and their respective booth locations during the event. Complete with descriptions about each beer’s style, hops varieties, alcohol percentage, and IBUs, users get a crash course in what will be available to sip on. The GCBF app also includes descriptions of each brewery and links to their websites and various social media channels so that users can stay connected with their favourite craft breweries and can continue to support the growing craft beer industry after the festival ends. The app also includes a Get Home Safe section for easy access to public transit schedules and taxi services, encouraging attendees to enjoy all that the festival has to offer responsibly.

    Ryan Stratton, CEO of Craftt, explains why the team was excited to take on the project.

    “Supporting the craft beverage industry has always been at the core of our business model and we were thrilled to jump on the opportunity to help GCBF by building an app for them for this year’s event. We’re hoping the app gets more people connected to some of our amazing breweries and that, in turn, increases their exposure and boosts their business. We’ve got so many great brewers and beers in this country and we’re so pleased to be able to help more beer lovers discover them.”

    Over 8,000 people are set to enjoy more than 20,000 litres of beer at this year’s festival. Breweries from across BC, Alberta, Ontario, Quebec, and the Yukon will be present. The GCBF app will help users do their homework and come to the event prepared to enjoy some of Canada’s best craft beers and ciders.

    Frosty Pop gets 11th Apple feature with new arcade puzzle game Teeter. see more

    VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA, June 30, 2016 — Today, The Frosty Pop Corps released "Teeter", an original arcade puzzle game for iPhone, iPad, and iPod. The game is currently featured in countires around the world in the Apple App Store. 

    “This is the first time I have eschewed the free to play model for a paid one,” said founder Faisal Sethi. “So although this is not the first time I have been featured in the App Store, the validation feels a bit different. It will be interesting to see the consequential effects this time out comparatively to the others.”

    Since 2015, The Frosty Pop Corps have been featured 11 times in the App Store, most recently with Walls & Balls (free), the first release of a planned trilogy of ball games.

    “ Teeter is definitely ‘The Empire’ of my mobile trilogy,” said Sethi. “In hindsight, I suspect it will be recognized as the best one, and hopefully worth the box office breaking $1.99 USD price tag.”

    Teeter can be downloaded here:
