What's Next?

Posted by Mark Angelillo, May 23, 2008.

At Snooth headquarters we've spent the past week or so doing a bit of Spring cleaning. In addition to our ongoing data work we've been going back over the codebase we have, dusting and preparing it for the weeks ahead.

That said, we've still managed to roll out some new features. Recently we added the ability for users to tag wine reviews with whatever tags they would like. Peppermint stick, flower pot, clump of dirt: all of these can now become your custom tags for describing the wines you drink.

We also modified the ratings over time graph on the detail page. Before it showed a breakdown of ratings by year, but if all of the ratings came within one year it wasn't as easy to see the breakdown. Now that's changed and you can see ratings by quarter or even by month depending on what is appropriate.

We've got some more exciting features planned, so stay tuned. And have a good weekend.

Don't expect us to take a break anytime soon. We have tricks up both sleeves and in all pockets.

Ha, well said.

"flowerpot"? I found myself trying to click on the "no, this review was not helpful to me" in the image above!

Both of those features had been asked for by a lot of our users, so it's nice to get them ticked off the list

You should hear the tag ideas I rejected when writing this post!

@Sung -- That was a fake review that exists only on our dev site, but to me chewy tannins would be those tannins that make you smack your chops and literally chew the lingering finish. I've definitely found myself working those tannins around in my mouth before!

Also "chewy tannins"...interesting description? While I have no idea what a chewy wine might be like, I have to know what wine Mark is talking about to see what he might call "chewy tannins".

Perhaps he is talking about wine gums, they are quite chewy:

YUM! I love Wine Gums!

Reply by Philip James, Jun 16, 2008.

Potentially even better than wine gums:

Fruit Pastels!

Why not have the best of both?

Fruit Gums!!!
