A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this app.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that this popular gag app turns the iPhone into a virtual frosty one. In addition to beer, the iPhone app simulates mouthwash and coffee, and players can purchase add-ons such as milk, cola, and wine. The iBeer Keg app for iPad will "pour" beer into an iPhone running this app. Our review is based on the iPhone app; the Android app may have some differences in functionality.

Is it any good?
iBeer looks and sounds so much like the real thing you half expect the "mug" to feel cold and sweaty to the touch. Choose one of five types of brewskis from the virtual vending machine, watch the screen fill with amber liquid, then tilt the phone (ideally into mouth) to make it drain. Repeat. Remain sober.
