Nice to have. Maybe it was my indoor location, but I had a lot of trouble using it at a recent wine expo. Otherwise, it's a handy app for the casual and professional wine consumer. I like that they will manually look up the wine info, like varietal, from the pictured label if you forgot the name of it or its producer since not all labels contain this info.
I originally bought Drync Pro, which I loved. No so Drync Wine Scanner, Delivery. I wanted an app to keep track of my wines, not to sell me wine. I can now not search my wines by where I bought them, presumably because Drync doesn't want me to buy from my local wine shops. This is not what I paid for. I'll be picking another wine app and deleting this one. I feel cheated out of the money that I paid for the original app. If I could give this no stars, I would.
This app is not for people who want to track lots of wines. It's good for a couple dozen different bottles, but has a serious flaw. You can't enter two different wines, from one vineyard, with similar labels, the app always overwrites the first entry with the second. Enter wine #1, give it a score and notes, confirm that it's the right wine and vintage. Make an entry for wine #2. When you hit "done", the app always guesses that it's the wine you entered previously with a similar label. The problem is, it has now overwritten your entry from the first wine, so even if you click "wrong wine" and tell it what the second bottle actually is, the two entries are now merged, and the first wine is gone. THERE IS NO WAY TO AVOID THIS. The bug can be duplicated 100% of the time with Cougar Crest wines. Devs, switch the process around! Confirm wine ID first, score and notes second. Or have it prompt "This is a duplicate, are you sure you want to overwrite?" then let the user choose a wine if they click "no". Also, why no separate entries for different vintages? I've got 150 bottles in my library, and I'm moving to Delectable. The app has become unusable.
Cumbersome Good for simplistic note taking of a few wines, but gets cumbersome to use beyond that. Seemingly ignores state alcohol laws that prohibit shipping directly to homes from a cursory test - unless they were waiting until AFTER they had credit card info to say shipping isn't allowed to this state. (Which would seem equally suspect.) Quoted shipping nearly doubled the cost of the wine.
Love it! Now I'll never forget that bottle of wine I loved at a wine tasting or a friend's house! Awesome app!
