Really Useful Resource
I use this all the time--to look up wines in stores and restaurants before buying and when pulling a bottle from my own small collection to check the tasting note and drink window. Well worth the monthly subscription -- it's saved me from paying more for an average bottle when a cheaper, better wine is right next to it.
Sure, it costs moneys....
Sure, you have to pay for it to unlock the real potential. But for the wine professional, or wine buyer, this app is a "go to." Every time I'm buying a new wine, and sometimes when I'm selling it, I refer to this app. It has definitely paid for itself.
This is a good app to reference while shopping for wine. However, the addition of a considerable amount of wine info would make this app great, info that includes more regions and types. In addition, when a person pays $2.99/mo for an app (with no annual subscription available), they expect premium content (i.e., pictures and video). And apps in 2015 should be optimized for iPhone 6/6+.
