If you are new to wine this app is fantastic. However once you have immersed yourself into the world of wine for a while the articles and info seem childish. I only kept it for the Matt Kramer articles and now they disappeared. So...
I’m already a subscriber to WS and I thought this would be a nice complement to the magazine so that when I’m at the wine store, I can look for the ones I’ve flagged as interesting. But $3 per month for the app when I already have the information I need through purchasing the magazine seems silly. I would have possibly paid a one time fee of $10 or $15 but I’m not paying for yet another monthly subscription. I was really hoping for something better.
Amazing app! Can't recommend it enough for anyone interested in learning abt wine. I found the app so useful, I especially like the new profile section to keep track of all my wines!
Always great to learn from the best. Big fan of this handy app and Wine Spectator!
The app is such a great, trustworthy resource. I use it all the time when buying wine in stores or ordering in restaurants.
Whether you are a wine expert or new to the category, you will love this app! Helps me with my decisions when I’m at the store buying for myself or trying to impress clients at dinner. I don’t trust any other wine reviewer - Wine Spectator is the best and my most trusted!
It’s always fun to learn about wine, but nowadays there’s too much information out there. Wine Spectator is the industry standard, so it’s great to learn from the best!
The app is constantly crashing on me now. Whatever fix you did did not help me. I even deleted it and lost all of my data in favorites. And when I downloaded it it's still crashes. What's that about? Very bummed out
I cannot access the site after the 4/19 update. There is no way to communicate with the developer.
This app has been around forever. If you look at the reviews some of them stretch back 7 years. I've used this off and on during that time, and it's gone from a borderline useless app to one that is pretty useful. I agree that the WS subscription model requires you pay separately for this, print magazines, and online access, but that aside this app is worth a few bucks a month if you buy wine regularly. Many times ratings labels in stores are for different vintages or releases, so it's good to double check. My one suggestion to improve this app would be to filter based on number of cases released. Many of the higher rated wines have very limited releases so it would be nice to sort out the ones you know you won't ever find in the local stores. Also adding the ability to filter multiple years. Currently you can only filter by one year at a time.
