Wine Spectator WineRatings+ Reviews
Sad that this is "free" when you download but there is absolutely nothing you can do with it without adding the paid subscription. Going with Vivino.
Why call it free when it isn't?
By James in London
Just be up front and say the app is useless unless you buy the $2.99 library. Or a subscription. Deleted and decided to stick with Vivino.
Triple Charges and Type-in search
WS has separate subscriptions for this app $36, WS online $60, and WS magazine $50. Each has overlapping content but different services.
Type-in versus barcode or label-scan search is a major drag.
I'm a subscriber to the print and online Wine Spectator magazine...$75/yr for that privilege. Astounded that my membership isn't enough to get me access to even basic info via the mobile app. Very sad.
I won't pat subscription
Horrible. I won't pay for a subscription to be able to search. I agreed to have advertisement of wines and related or suggestions, so get paid by the advertisers , not me the end user. Not agreed, so already deleted and happy using another app.
Keeps getting better and better
The updates to this app are a big improvement and there are new wines added regularly. Very useful when I am looking at a wine list in a restaurant.
Wish I had this app earlier
So I'm growing from a novice wine buyer and consumer to someone who is buying to both drink and age at home. If I had this app a few months ago I would not have been bamboozled by that awe full Vivino app as bad as I was. A must have guide.
Nicely done update
This upgrade offers quite a lot of useful data in an easy-to-use format, with an expanded Feed that has lots of additional articles. And they've added more info to the vintage charts; I’d like to see them continue to expand this area. All the reviews you get are quite a bargain for the monthly fee!
The best wine reviews
There are a few other ratings apps, but this, by far, has the best ratings. Paying 3 bucks is worth it if it means the difference between buying a great bottle of wine and a subpar one.
easy to use, authoritative reviews
I use this app every time I'm in a restaurant or wine shop. Really improves my chances of finding the right wine.
Use it all the time!
There is no other wine app out there that has all of this content. Although I am already a subscriber, I am happy to pay extra to have all of this info in my pocket at all times!
The old version was better.
I pay full freight for this content happily. But recent design changes have added more work for the user to find what they are looking for.
What used to be a good autocomplete on a character by character text entry has, with the latest design, made the user work harder to find what they are looking for. Frustration. Bring back the old interface.
