The Better Wine Guide app is for anyone partial to a drop of wine. From beginners who cant't tell their Chardonnay from Chablis, onto those who think they're a bit of a connoisseur. The app offers expert advice on the good and bad and allows you to track what you like while also finding out what other people enjoy.
The apps simple to use and searching for a wine is as simple as scanning the barcode. If the wine exists in the database it'll be pulled back with information about it including an average community rating. If it isn't found you can choose to insert it. Along with viewing/inserting wine information youj can also rate wine out of 5 stars.
Along with rating wine you've already drunk you can also use the advanced search feature to search for wines based on different criteria. Search by score, country, grape type and more. The search is excellent and is only let down by the limited number of wines available.
The app also allows you to save bottles to your wine lists (My Wines and Wines of Interest). These lists are useful when you're at the supermarket and you need a bit of inspiration when visiting the booze isle.
Better Wine Guide is a great app for wine lovers. The barcode scanner is a real time saver when your searching for wines. Recording wines to your custom wine lists is a neat feature and allows you to build up a library of your favorites. The main drawback is it's mainly targeted to the American market. All the wines I scanned weren't available (with the exception of a champagne) and I had to insert them myself. The developers have mentioned they'll be expanding to more countries in the future and it would be excellent if they could bring it over to the United Kingdom.
If you're looking for an app that contains a comprehensive list of wines from outside America, you may be slightly disappointed. If you're in the United States or don't mind contributing to the wine list, Better Wine Guide is worth a look.
