It's a great way to chronicle the wines you've tasted and to get other people's opinions on wines you want to buy. My only complaint is that the feature that tells you how much the wine costs doesn't work. Every wine I enter, the app says is sold out even if I scan it while I'm in the state store. Oh well. Great tool regardless.
Wine lovers get this app My girlfriend and I love to take pictures of wines we come across and write reviews together. It serves as a great personal log for all the wine we liked. It is also interesting to know where our score ranked to others that reviewed the same wine. The app still needs more users for it to be totally social and there have been some wines that the program can't recognize. That being said, we have seen the app respond well to requests to add wine and know this will get better as time goes on.
Great for recording the wines I've tasted. I'm not so sure about the scale... what's the point of 10 stars if you can't use all of them? I think 1-5 would be easier. And maybe with 1/2 stars if you really gotta have it. But allowing 0.1 increments is a little much. Otherwise I like how easy it is to use... if only I could remember to use it more often! :)
Good, but... I really like this app. It's got a great community and a nice range of wines in the database to discover. However, I've been finding it hard to get new wines identified recently :( Has the developers abandoned the app? Emails have not been answered too.
Can't edit bottles Seems cool, but I can't get it to save the bottle I actually have. For example, it was confusing a white blend for a red blend of the same brand. I hit the edit button, the correct bottle was in the suggested list, but after I selected it I didn't have an option to save it, and it didn't update after I hit the back arrow or soft key. The year I entered also didn't save. I've tried taking multiple pictures and I've tried a few different bottles with the same issues, so I can't really use the app.
I scanned two wines of a small winery which is not present in the DB. You get them published, once you rate them, so it is not only a perfect lookup, but is also working as a drink-diary. Make sure, you add a correct rating, which increases your chances of good followers.
