Review from Cláudio Zecchin
This app is hopeless. You can't scan barcodes which would be so much more accurate. It gets 90% of wines I scan wrong, whether it's the wrong year, variety or other issue. It hardly ever gives a price or rating. And don't even bother trying to scan a wine list. That feature is completely useless and doesn't get a single thing right.
Have been using this app since 2013. So far this APP has been right on. I have recommended this app to many friends and all feel the way I do. Never fails that while in a store scanning someone always comes up and is asking me to scan their wine choices. Very pleased.
.. the camera focus is hard to get with my Samsung S5 - so it's a timely struggle to get the right picture.. And places: Can only see in a small area of shops and place/shop search is bad.. I bought the premium subscription but can't rally tell the difference except for some features that keeps crashing.
Really enjoy this app and use it alot. Also get new users on it all the time. Just very frustrating that when I scan a wine it change an old wine to this information. When I change old wine back it changes the new wine also to this info. Happening more and more, aspecially whith wines from one cellar and it's similar looking labels but the name or cultivar is stil different.
It certainly has a good archive but seems to have a rating purely based on price - if it's expensive it's good and if it's cheap it's no good regardless. Most of the star ratings have no verbal back up. The price ranges don't seem too thorough. I've found lower prices elsewhere fairly easily. It often has missing vintages too so only refers to the vintages it may have listed which could be completely different to the one you want a review on. So really you're best off just googling a wine or looking at winesearcher. Many prices but nowhere recommended to buy them. Really odd that 90% of wines I've checked with it - while here in the heart of Cote du Rhone region for 10 days, in standard super markets and local wine shops - it's given me a cheaper price in the UK....?
It helps me distinguish ok wines from really awful ones in the bargain wine section! My only problem is it's sometimes slow when I'm in the store
