Windows Phone users can now toast the fact that another popular app has come to their platform of choice: Vivino.
This app, which is popular on several other platforms, allows users to find, rate and share their favourite wines with friends, family and internet strangers. By signing into the app folks can the find recommendations, see reviews and learn more about their favourite bottle of wine.
One of the really cool features of Vivino is that it allows users to scan any bottle, quickly pulling information from a large database of wines. Even if your particular bottle wasn’t recognized automatically, the Vivino team can manually check and send you the info. Users can then learn what others think about that particular wine, what should be served with it, which years are considered best and so on.
There’s also a premium version of the app which adds a few extra features. The big one is getting on the Fast Track for manual matching of your wine bottles. If you’re really into wines this is probably a must-have.
The app integrates with Facebook, Twitter and even your Gmail contacts so you can stalk your friends and check out what they’re drinking. As a new release, the apps works well on Windows Phone, but we’ve already found a reproducible bug when scanning bottles, so expect a few more updates before the app is fully on par with other platforms.
Still, the basic Vivino app is free and works decently, plus it could be a great tool for the wine enthusiasts among you. You can download it by clicking here or manually searching for it in the Windows Phone Store.
