Crashes on startup

This used to be a great app for discovering wineries but in iOS 11 and iOS 12 it just crashes on startup on both ipad and iPhone.

Nice idea but not complete

I had high hopes for this app as my wife and I travel to VA wine country over many weekends.

The app, unfortunately is not complete. Just in the Marshall Va area it failed to list 3 wineries still in business.

I won't be keeping this one.

Needs a little work

Great concept, especially the "been there" function. Problem is, you can only add one winery to the list at a time. Try to add a second and the app locks. If you close the app then relaunch, the second winery has been added, but the process starts all over - add one..add two and it locks. Close, relaunch, repeat...

It will take me forever to load in all the wineries I've visited.
