Does the TABC Mobile App work anymore?

#1

Post by Scott in Houston »

Since COVID, I have had limited time out.
Well, now I’m out and visited a place that I could see being 51% but wasn’t sure.
I opened my TABC App and tried to use it with my phone to no avail.

With the changes in the law and the confusion regarding signs… it doesn’t seem to be functional.

What is the link to the web site for verifying a license (red gun sign) status?

I found the link that allows inquiries on the TABC site.
Wish the mobile app worked still.

Open a browser, go to tabc.texas.gov
It worked as expected when I used it today.
Last used the app (Android) a few weeks ago, it also worked as expected. The proviso is that I only keyword search on the website; in the app I almost never word search - almost always select a location from the map. Word search could be broken in the app and I wouldn't necessarily notice.....

Very disappointing... I Used this often. Just checked and it does not appear to work. Hope it gets worked out and comes back.

Have a meeting at Lone Star Wine Cellar in McKinney this afternoon.
TABC website lists a license but "Gun Sign" is blank. Can someone help me? Can I carry?

They have a G license which is a winery. Those get neither sign but since the majority of wine is sold in bottles to go it's not 51%.

I've reported two that were displaying 51% signs and they got removed.

Tried my (Android) TABC app this morning. It won't display a map, and won't keyword search. :waiting:
