Need a great cheese app for your iPhone or iPad? The Fromage app is an excellent guide for cheeses made throughout the world. A “must have” for all connoisseurs of fine foods.
Each cheese entry features artistically presented cheese photos, historically narrated flavor descriptions, and suggested best choices for complementary wines. You can add your own cheeses to the standard library and attach personal notes about any of the cheeses.
If you’re a classically trained chef, professional party planner, cheese buyer, or just plain cheese lover, grab Fromage, your favorite wine, and experience the wonderful and historic flavors of cheese.
Fromage comes with the ability to create personal cheese notes, rate cheeses from 1 to 5 stars (included an “Avoid” rating), add cheeses to your favorite lists (Try, Buy, or Favorites categories), record tasting impressions with up to 70 tasting keywords, and search the cheese library.
You can also enter your own cheeses (including photos captured from your device camera) and list those cheeses automatically in the new “My Additions” category. There is also a “Share” feature so cheeses can be sent (via e-mail) to friends or to the developer for inclusion (see copyright note below) in future versions of Fromage.
Internet or Wi-Fi connection is not required for program use (great for remote locations or when no data plan is in use). An iCloud account is required to sync cheese information between devices.

What's New in Version 9.5
A minor bug fix for version 9.5 with version 9.0 adding over 100 cheeses mostly from the Vermont USA region. The search abilities have also been enhanced to consider the wine pairing and description fields. The app has been adapted to enable Apple’s Split View, Slide Over, and iPhone landscape modes.
