Cor kz Wine Info ($1.99): Apple / Android

Another wine app you may be interested in is Wine Info. Judged to be one of 50 best for the iPhone, is an inexpensive app ($1.99) that searches over a million wines either by name or barcode. Tied to free web service, Cellar Tracker, as well as Facebook, Twitter, and Foursquare. The Android version of the app even offers side-by-side comparisons.

Getting started

  1. The opening screen, after downloading, shares information on a new varietal offered at a discounted price and a browse tab. (See screenshot below.)
  2. Click Browse Wines. Check a country of your choice and note the region(s) and wines offered
  3. Review Top Regions for the best wine offerings from around the world
  4. Click My Cellar and configure your home selection.  You may use an existing account or set up a free account.
  5. Scan in a label from your own wine selection.
  6. Click Pedia for wine terms, wine varietals, and wine regions.
