Irregular even for an off app
Parker may give the 2010 Montrose or the 2010 Shafer Hillside Select a perfect 100, but he would probably give the latest version of his own app a 73. The old version was sufficiently usable and thorough. The upgraded version in purple/magenta is a disaster. The reviews of many wines have not made their way to the app database yet. All systems updated on my iOS, but not a go for hundreds of reviews that were present in the prior version. For example, there is not one Opus One review to be found. The Emperor needs new app designers.
Poor Navigation; VERY Old charts - useless
Many parts of the vintage charts are woefully OUT OF DATE - some back to 2009 (hey we are in 2014 and so all 2012 ratings should be there!). The vintage charts are poorly structured - e.g California has North Coast and Central Coast. This is poor - North Coast could be divided in Sonoma, Carneros, Napa and maybe one or 2 others to reflect the climatic changes. Navigation is TERRIBLE. There is no back button so you have to go all the way back out to the beginning and start over again. Parker should be better than this.
I was about to cancel my eRP subscription when the versionI downloaded was totally unusable on my iphone 5, but the latest update has fixed the app, which seems zippy and functional.
It still didn't help me as I was wine shopping this weekend for the holidays, but why dwell in the past...
