Subpar at best

This app has the potential for greatness, yet they fail at the most basic rudimentary functions. Get it together!

Poor cellar tracking

2
This is my go to app when purchasing wines. The reviews of other users are usually helpful. However, the very cumbersome cellar tracking feature is not very useful. If you are primarily looking for a way to track your wines across multiple locations then you should keep searching.

Looking for a dial up speed app?

1
If you’re tired of your blazing fast iPhone you spent bank on to get 5g and a chip that could launch a rocket. If you long for the good old days of inserting a cd you got in the mail from compuserve promising 55 hours of free internet. If life just moved too dang fast, this app is for you! It don’t care that it’s 2021. It don’t care that you’ve curated years of wine bottles into it. Or you e gifted it to you family. The developer is over you, and well, they’re also on dialup so they can’t hear you complain because they are online and can’t pick up the phone. Please send a self addressed stamped envelope to “Bad Wine App, PO Box 999, Pueblo, Colorado”.

Three-in-One App

All in all this app is an easy 5. This is one of my favorite apps; I use it regularly. I could see it being useful for anyone from the hardcore oenophile to someone just getting into wines looking to find hidden gems, develop their nose, and save some money while they're at it. The app has a ton of functionality for those who need it but the interface is still really clear and intuitive. My only recommendation would be to add a vintage chart and update the Apple Watch complication. As it is now I just supplement this app with Wine Spectator's free Vintage Chart app. Also I don’t really understand the purpose of the Apple Watch complication. It doesn’t seem to do anything. Cor.kz is really three apps in one: it helps you quickly find great wines in the store at the best prices, remember the wines you've tried and what you liked or disliked about them, and keep track of the wines you have at home and when to drink them. It also has a neat little guide to wine terms, varietals, and regions that's actually quite comprehensive. The first function allows you to search by scanning a barcode or entering the name. Unlike other reviewers, the barcode scanner has worked really well for me; it actually seems to scan faster than a lot of dedicated barcode scanning apps. On rare occasions a barcode doesn't come up with the wine I'm looking for, but if I search for the wine by name right after that, the app has a neat feature where it will offer to remember that barcode for that wine; so I never have to enter the name twice. Once you find the wine, the app lists some prices online so you can know if you're getting a good deal. Cor.kz also helps you remember what wines you've had, and what you liked or disliked about them. It's a really helpful feature when you try a lot of wines and want to be able to find it again later. It's also a great feature for people developing their wine nose too: by practicing picking out the individual notes and recording them you get a better sense of what you like and how to read wine notes or tell a sommelier what you like. The third function is its cellar tracker (or really its integration with Cellar Tracker). It does the job very well, helping you recall what you've got at home when you're at the local wine shop or wondering if you need to stop by there before heading to a friend's for dinner. When you're at home it's still useful because it gives you an idea of whether the wine's ready to drink or should cellar for another year or two.

Limitations

Overall I like this app. My big concerns come in from the lack of ability to add a wine that does not appear in their database or to adjust the year of the wine (it will be in the database for 2016 but not 2017).

No longer supported... go to CellarTracker

1
Sadly, this app is no longer supported and there are some issues with it. I have reached out at least twice over the past 12-18 months with specific concerns, questions, & issues. Not a single response. Not sure what happened because it used to be great! Don’t waste your time here. Just go straight to. CellarTracker (the database back-end to this app.) There were features here that I liked better than CellarTracker, but I’ll just learn how to use CT from here on out.
