Mobile / Cell Wine Rating

Posted by lrossouw, May 30, 2008.

I typically drink a wine at a function etc. Often the first wine I drink is the one I want to note, but by the next day when I've recovered I cannot remember the details of the wine and or my tasting experience.

Is there functionality where one can rate a wine from your mobile phone? Perhaps by accessing a mobile version of the site? Would be great, but I suppose the pen & paper need to do for now.

Yes sir, cell phone application is one of the most requested features - we've delayed for a long time as we want to make it good, easy to use and relevant for launch. We're getting close to that now. However, our application is likely to focus more on shopping for wine (getting reviews and prices) rather than rating.

Would you like to be able to rate a wine on the go, or if you could send some text to a holding bucket for your account, which you could then tidy up and add to a specific wine later, would that be useful?

Definitely looking forward to this ... or even a mobile web page that I can access from my blackberry.,

I can already email/text myself for later reference. 1st prise would be able to rate a wine on the go.

ok, got it - well, its in its preliminary stages. We'll be making some on site changes in the next week weeks which may give people a clue how the mobile app will work. I get in trouble for announcing things prematurely in the forums, so will stay quiet this time

If you need a beta tester I know someone that might be interested. :-)

Haha, you're already on the list - we've got to launch the karma stuff, then there'll be some geolocation fun

geolocation?!? will get my gps enabled cell ready for geotagged wine reviews... soon we will be able to answere "does the wine taste differently in cape town or london?" :)

Haha, well, we might get there eventually. I was thinking things like:

"whats the best $20 Chardonnay for sale within 10 miles of where I'm standing"

What's that about announcing things prematurely??? Heh!

@Honda -- always need good testers.
