C’mon Platters, surely you must realise that apps are the way of feature? I love your wine guide, but this is hardly a functional app. Think you’re missing an opportunity...

Had much anticipation, but unfortunately highly disappointed with the Platters App. The search engine is extremely disappointing, as is the label scanner. The wine range, when you do eventually find them manually after much searching, is also disappointing. This App is an utter waste of money and definitely not recommended. Rather use the free Vivino App. It's far superior to the Platters App!

Bad purchase

Kelly bouwer

I have had nothing but problems and actually haven't been able to use the app at all. It gives a message that the purchase was made but their server has a problem. Close app and try re opening it.
Very frustrating as it wasn't a free app. I don't recommend it at all.
