It’s like having a sommelier in your pocket! Cor.kz is the perfect wine app for wine enthusiasts and novices alike because it offers the best data, most complete feature set, and easiest user experience. Cor.kz is one of Fast Company's 25 "must have" iPhone apps, has been featured in The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Time Magazine.
★ Incredible Database: Cor.kz brings the power of CellarTracker's humongous wine database to the palm of your hand. Browse or search more than 1,500,000 wines and over 3,000,000 reviews.
★ Barcode Scanning: Cor.kz scans the UPC barcodes present on many wines. Note that some wines don’t have bar codes, and some wines re-use barcodes for multiple vintages (you’ll be presented with a choice of vintage). We’re seeing about a 65% success rate on scanned codes, and it’s getting better every day! (Barcode scanning requires iOS 5 or later)
★ Compare Wines: Cor.kz is the only iPhone wine application that provides side-by-side comparisons. Trying to decide what to buy at the wine shop, or what to order from the wine list? Want to know how the 1997 compares to the 1998? Compare ratings, retail prices, drinking windows, and more -- at a glance!
★ Ratings, Notes, and Wishlists: When you drink a bottle, record a score and your tasting notes. When you find a great bottle, add it to your wishlist, or email the wine's information to yourself or to friends.
★ Consumption History: View your previously consumed wines, along with your ratings and tasting notes. Never again will you wonder "what was that fantastic wine I had last week?"
★ Cellar Management: Add new wine to your CellarTracker inventory right from your phone. Browse your current inventory, sorting by rating or drinking window. And when you drink a bottle, Cor.kz will automatically remove it from your inventory.
★ Social Connection: Twitter and Facebook integration lets your friends know what wine you're drinking - and what you think about it - in real time.
★ Pricing: Cor.kz automatically shows pricing data from hundreds of online sources on over 90% of wines users look up.

Take Cellar Tracker with You
I organize my cellar with Cellar Tracker. So, it is great to be able to pick a wine and then "drink" it and review it with my I-phone on the living room couch, not head to my desk top. It is also great to be able to sort within sorts (eg. List all Pinots and then sort by drinking dates.) Also pretty useful picking wines in a store. (I refuse to pull it out in a restaurant.) I do not use it for inputting wines because it does not have all of the features of CT, but when inputting wines on my desktop or laptop it is handy to use the phone ap as a second screen. Two minor issues. The slide for the wine rating number is hard to get on the precise number; I would prefer a tumbler like it has for cellar location and date. Also, if you have a minor typo when typing wine names, it does not recognize the wine. (Newer version does this sometimes. ???). Also have to get used to newer version prompting for next. Have several times "drank" before finished with input, and there is no way go ho back and edit/add. Overall a great ap.
Note to other reviewers: if you are not familiar with the quirks of the Cellar Tracker wine reviews, you may be surprised at some of the reviews. Often necessary to figure out who has reviewed what, and ratings and drinking dates are often not consistent with text, but very many, very knowledgable people are reviewing, and scoring very hard. Don't go by the rating number alone.
Big flaw, should be easy to fix
Really nice features and great user interface to interact with CellarTracker database. Barcode scan feature for drinking from your own cellar, however, is deeply flawed and corrupts the integrity of your entire cellar inventory. It scans your CellarTracker bar codes and finds the wine in your cellar, but instead of identifying the specific bar coded bottle, it randomly grabs any bottle of that particular wine. So, if you have a dozen bottles of a particular wine and you scan a specific bottle to drink, instead of logging that specific bottle as drunk, it selects a random bottle from the dozen of that type and you have no way of knowing what it has done until you examine your inventory and find that the wrong bottle has been logged as drunk. Very disappointing, not to mention time consuming to correct. Did they not test this feature at all? Too bad, because otherwise would be a very nice app. Please fix -- this can't be that hard to do correctly.
I really enjoy this app for recording my wine cellar. I use it also to check wine prices when shopping. I would like to see the data base include more drinking dates for wines but it is getting better every day. I also agree it would be great to see ratings from casual drinkers separate from those of Wine Advocate or Wine Spectator. All over it is a great app.
