BC Liquor Locator App for iPhone

Share:

Here’s an iPhone app for our local British Columbia residents!

BC Liquor Locator by Matt Vague Designs

BC Liquor Locator, as the name implies, helps users locate the nearest BC Liquor Store to them. Keep in mind however that the app does not find all liquor stores in the area. Instead, the app searches for official BC Liquor store locations.

The app uses the current location of the iPhone to locate all of the nearby BC Liquor stores. Once located, the app organizes the stores by proximity. While Google Maps on the iPhone can do this as well, this specific app is a far more efficient tool to use if you are looking for just the BCL stores.

To search for a BCL store, users can view the map with pins representing locations or browse by city to see all of the BCL locations in a specific city. The really nice thing about the app is that it has every single, or at least almost every single, BCL store with up to date hours for each location.

If you have ever tried browsing the BCL website on your iPhone, you will know how non-iPhone friendly that site is. However, browsing the official site does give users access to product searches, which is something this app does not support.

Overall, the app provides a clean layout and allows users to quickly find their local or city-wide BCL store.

BC Liquor Locator is available in the App Store for $0.99.

  • Of course only Ex would need such an app! 😉

  • I don't really see the use. You should know where the liquor stores in your town, and if you're taking a road trip, you probably shouldn't be drinking anyways.

    Hmm. Seems to me that BoozeHound ( Iphoneincanada.ca/app-store/boozehound-the-liquor-store-finder-app/ ) also finds all BC Liquor stores as well as the rest across Canada, but for free. My thoughts are to save your $0.99 and check out boozehound.
    Btw, when you are traveling, in an unfamiliar area, or looking for a store open till eleven, either of these would be very handy. I use boozehound all the time (too much?) It's great!

  • Ex

    So many iPhone 4 questions. Solution: liquor.

    Roger's website now says “Coming July 30th”

  • Xywix

    i agree….if u dont know all the beer & LCBO's in ur area…u shouldnt b buying booze maybe!

  • Mattvague

    Boozehound is $1.99 as far as I can see

  • Doug

    I bought an app called BoozeHound that finds BC Liquor stores as well as the private stores with store hours for both. I think I paid $1.99… worth the extra buck.

  • Hpa2

    I'd just go on the bcliquorstore website and find the stores manually…simple and free

  • Happy

    Sorry for the misinformation. When I got it it was free. Definitely with the extra buck though…

    This app also has private liquor stores for a dollar less much much better
