Wine4.Me is an app by Amy Gross that makes choosing your ideal wine for the evening easier than ever before. Available for free through the iTunes Store, Wine4.Me uses individual’s stated taste preferences to introduce them to new selections that they might be interested in.
Wine4.Me is an app whose features do exactly what its name suggests—select personalized wine lists for each user. The app does this by first having users fill out a survey to state their known wine preferences; survey sections include “Grape,” “Region,” “Winery,” and “Country,” and just about every imaginable option for each of these sections is listed alphabetically under them.
A search bar feature allows users to go directly to options instead of having to scroll through all the others if desired, and users can select as many or as few options per section as they would like. The more complete your “wine profile” is, however, the easier it is for the app to find personalized wine suggestions for you.
Specific wine taste options are also selectable. The wines within the app are all reviewed by wine experts so they are all properly categorized. This fact, combined with Wine4.Me’s unique wine-matching algorithm, makes it very likely that the wines suggested for you based on your wine profile will indeed be ones that you are pleased with.
Finally, users have the option of rating suggested wines after they’ve tried them out, in order to better increase the app’s chance of matching them with the perfect wine options.
Appearance and Layout:
First time users to Wine4.Me are greeted with a step-by-step introduction describing how to get the most out of the app. The developers have done a great job making the directions simple and quick to the point making setting up your wine profile a cinch.
The layout of this app is very well designed and so logically oriented that some users might find that they don’t even need to swipe through this introductory material at all. Users will likely find that navigating through Wine4.Me in order to fully create your wine profile and enjoy all its features is a breeze.
Additionally, all graphics in Wine4.Me are beautifully simple and clean, including the app’s identifying icon. Fonts are easy to read on an iOS screen of any size.
This is a free app that really does exactly what it promises with features that are simple to use and well organized in a visually appealing manner. This app is a must for any wine enthusiast.
The fact that the wines suggested in the app are typically available at common grocery stores across the United States is also definitely appreciated, as it allows users to actually have a good likelihood of being able to find the wine they’re seeking.
Overall, the value of Wine4.Me is excellent for wine lovers and wine amateurs alike.
