Tina talked about some of the easy to use apps over the weekend, including that crazy one I want to stay far away from that shows how much alcohol can age you. I included a few that I used regularly and some that didn’t overly impress the first few visits. http://wp.me/p2KSbj-oE
Wine Picks and Pairings: Natalie MacLean’s app definitely impressed the second time around. I poked around and found all kinds of features that will have me coming back. My favourite: the top 10 best value wines at the LCBO outlets closest to your home. You can sort by price, score or wine type. I love this feature. When you select a wine, it will give you Nat’s review and/or a full review.
There are also pairing features that sort by your wine, food or occasion. You can store the names of your favourites, add them to a shopping list or to a virtual cellar if you pick one up for home. For those of you far more organized than I, it allows you to keep track of everything you have in your cellar (or for most of us – the wine rack). You can also scan the barcode of a wine to get and store the information and it allows you to share reviews of wine you are excited about. Nice work!
This app is easy to navigate and full of useful information. Available for Iphone/Ipod Touch, Blackberry and Android.
