The vintage reviews are over a year out of date and wine reviews are increasingly incomplete.
I already have a paid subscription to the magazine (both print and digital, which is already really expensive), plus a subscription to WineSpectator.com, but this App does not recognize those subscriptions and wants another $2.99 per month ($35.88) per year. There should be a bundle price, which could/would actually bring in more overall revenue. There are other wine rating apps from other vendors to choice from.
I download the app on my iPad but was unable to sign in on my iPhone. I had to delete the app from my phone, restart the phone, and download the app again. I’m now able to sign in. I like the app but it’s missing scan function.
Don’t even bother. Pop-up every second asking you to register. Last time i ever use this app. Deleted.
Even though I subscribe to the magazine, I find the app has limited utility - everything you select takes you to a subscription offer, with no access unless you subscribe. The magazine advertises the Xvalues section as free, but it’s not, rather it’s just the parent app that is free.
Bought the subscription on my iPad and cannot enable the subscription on my phone. Keep getting screens telling me to subscribe and that I’m already subscribed... Have read all the pertinent support articles, which tell me to enable the new device on a page that does not exist. Ugh. So frustrating.
The app is clunky and not user friendly. You can’t custom your wine search to exactly what you want. The online version is much better. The app just felt second rate. I’ve used free apps that are better organized. It is also horrible that if you buy the online subscription you also have to pay additional for the app as well. Don’t waste your time.
It is about time that you don’t have to type in every time. This app needs a scan function. The info is good and it is a tremendous help but time to move on.
So I am already a Wine Spectator member but it won’t let me sign in - signup window keeps popping up. Finally I just deleted the stupid app...
The app is simply frozen, cannot even open. I have used for years and doesn’t work on my New phone
