I imagine some poor marketing bod got it In the neck when their 100000 free pints only generated 14 new users off their app (lol)
We would pick areas of London to go out in with lots of Youngs pubs and just do a pub crawl. Areas like Wimbledon, Putney, Angel/Kings Cross. The pubs with multiple bars were obviously best as you could switch up the bars and the bar staff, it would take longer for them to rumble you. One outing there was about 8 of us, we lost count once it got to triple figures of free pints, as we were so drunk. It pleases me to think how much revenue they lost in that year, as Youngs normally charge hideous prices for beers.
All bar one free gintonica seems to have finally ended too after over a year!!!
I really miss it too. I used to go from one bar to another in same venue before half hour timer ran out and sometimes another pub over the road! Or other end of st pancras station when they had the tiny bar near the East Midlands platforms. Also they would put free drinks on periodically like world gin day, world beer day, intentional happiness day etc etc
Not as good as when they launched their app and offered anyone who downloads it a free drink. They were too stupid to make it so you couldn't just make a new account with a different email address, so me and all my mates got thousands of free pints out of them before they eventually clocked on. I was happy at this because I once worked for them, on minimum wage, and they treated their staff badly.

I'll see your dead pigeon and I'll raise you a microwave. (popcorn) Sweepstake: who will be first to mention Hitler or Stalin?
With an IT degree behind me and many years of experience working both in the industry and running a highly successful IT consultancy, I believe I possibly have more than a passing knowledge and level of competency. However, I would be fascinated to learn how "Thunderbird Mozilla" (sic) could work forever when disconnected from the internet. It's an email client! Incidentally, any browser is a piece of software.
1/ You had said, "When will people understand what "app permissions"
actually means? ... It doesn't mean that the app is taking over control
of your device." I said, you said it, not me. Now you said, "I did not state that your comment said that." a) Since, you said that you did not state your comment said that, which is : "It doesn't mean that the app is taking over control
of your device." What did this comment of yours say to me that is relevant to ? b) Which of my points do you want to negate by using your comment: "It doesn't mean that the app is taking over control
of your device"? ------------------------------------ Regarding your technical points, you are making points way out of your competence, about PC software, you said, "PC software has been doing it for decades." You said, "You could check browser settings and usage statistics for a start I suppose. If you are using Windows just take a peek at task manager to see a baffling array of start-up programmes, background processes etc." I have apps installed like Excel, 7zip, VLC,Thunderbird Mozilla Portable, MediaPlayer Classic, Filesync, Synctoys, Filezilla, Paintshop Pro, video editiors, audio extractors, SumatraPDF...etc. I took a peek at Windows Task Manager, these apps are not running processes becuase I am not using them now. This is contrary to what you say, I disconnect the internet, and these apps work forever. None of them do : take pictures and videosrun at Windows startupetc. You said,".........anyone want to nip round for free cookies?" My list of PC software does not do what you said, there are no cookies. you said, "PC software has been doing it for decades." I did ask you for a starter list of 10 PC software, other than the Internet Browser, you avoided this question. Therefore, what is this "it" that you are referring to, does your "it" means browser settings, cookies?
wow hold up, I thought this was about a free pint fs; so why the need for cyber security arguments in the comments come on; I’m pretty aware and open minded to intrusive apps/ device tech, but really, a pub branch app?? chill my dude

Also don't forget that even if you do have a smartphone,newer apps refuse to work on them eg.the latest version of wuntu,o2 priority,pizza express app etc.. These won't work on my Galaxy s2 jellybean. Means you have to buy a newer phone or flash a newer custom rom in order for the apps to work.
Yes, for people without a smartphone in 2018 it must be tough. Almost as hard as getting the latest movies on their Betamax player or their tireless efforts to Free Nelson Mandela :/
Yay! - could work up a powerful thirst walking to the enarest Young's pub (about 350 miles last time I checked!)
As it should be... ;)
