Next Glass – Drink Smart
By Next Glass, Inc.
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Next Glass uses science to help you find beer and wine you’ll love. Build a Taste Profile by rating drinks you’ve tried, and then let Next Glass tell you how much you'll like any drink you haven't tried.
Next Glass tests tens of thousands of beers and wines, analyzing each drink's unique chemical makeup. We evaluate each drink in our database against your Taste Profile to help you buy only drinks you’ll love.
• Get your personal score on every beer and wine.
• Search for a drink by name, or snap a photo of a bottle’s label or barcode.
• Rate a drink and see its nutritional information.
• Build a Taste Profile of drinks you’ve rated.
• Add drinks to your custom Wish List and save them for later.
• Discover and share new favorites with friends.
What's New in Version 2.2.0
What's new? Quite a lot, actually.
We made the drink card simpler. No more decimal places in scores. No more flipping the card over—you now see everything on the front of the card. Each drink's score is now in a circle and can be tapped to provide more information.
New recommendations section (formerly known as “Explore”) shows you drinks you'll actually like by delivering only drinks with a score of 80 or greater. We changed the filter icon to the word “filter” and added a popular drinks button to the filter so you can see what drinks are the most rated among Next Glass users.
The app is noticeably faster and new welcome tiles tell you exactly what Next Glass does and how we can help you, and we added the ability to replay the welcome tiles in the Settings menu. We also fixed a bug that was logging out users intermittently.
Finally, we removed several features that weren't working well enough for our users. Friends, Glass Match, Explore—they're are all gone. Why? These features weren't as good as they should have been so we took them out. Simple as that.
We hope you like the new Next Glass.

Good idea, needs work
I like the look and basic functionality of this app, but it very limited on the wines included. If this app wants to become something like untapped for wine, it needs to more fully integrate things like vintages for wines and a decent algorithm for crowd rating newly added wines not just varietal and brand. The same varietal can vary wildly between different years, even for cheap market wines so a year field is really important. Also, there is some sort of approval process for adding new wines, this should happen by crowd input after the user has added it to their personal library of wines they've tried. This would make the user experience more fluid and allow them to better track their tastes and add to the global/community list of wines more quickly.
Fun App ... And Free!
I give this app five stars because, even though some wines and beers still aren't loaded, there are many many that are! If you want an exact science and seriously detailed algorithm, you will probably want to look for a paid app. With this free app, I have had a lot of fun wandering around bottle shops and wine shops, snapping labels and searching for my recommended bottles.
It's a fun app at no cost, and I imagine it will only get better with time (no pun intended).
Very good app
I like this app and it is usually accurate, but sometimes I try to add a new drink and it won't let me. Also I don't like that you can't upload a picture of the beverage that you previously took. You can only take a picture to upload and I don't always have time to do that. I think the next update should let you upload a previously saved picture of the beverage. Other than that I would rate it 5 stars
