Stan, unfortunately at this point it is not a universal app. The primary reason for the lack of an iPad version is that there isn't a lot of content to fill the iPad's screen. I have a couple of updates in the works before I tackle the iPad version. I hope to have one of the updates submitted to Apple in the next day or so. Thanks for the interest.
I am the dev behind K-Cupboard and I wanted to pop in and thank Jay for the gracious plug. I also wanted to let everyone know that I am working on the first update now and I am adding the ability to keep track of any cups you have rated in a separate list. I am also working on a way for users to suggest any missing cups so I can add them into the database feed. In the mean time I will check the Van Houtte brand for any missing cups and add them into the stream.
Hopefully this will make the app a little more useful for you.
Thanks for the feedback.
I'm a bit disappointed with this app. I was expecting it to be something that would help you catalog/keep track of which K-Cups you'd already purchased and list your favorites, but this isn't the case... it's just a basic list of available K-Cups which you can browse through and see generic user ratings/K-Cup descriptions.
The list isn't even complete either as there's a few Van Houtte flavors and some of the Celestial Seasonings iced tea flavors missing. Being a pay app at 99cents, you'd expect a bit more than just a list with basic details.
I'll admit, I like the fact that you see actual images of the K-Cup logos/packaging instead of just a text listing and the fact that this is easier to browse on-the-go vs. pulling up GMCR's website.
Really hope they add the ability to catalog your favorite K-Cups in the future. If that feature were added, this would get a solid 5 stars.
