For some, wine is more than simply a drink. It is a lifestyle and a passion. If you are of this way of thinking, or simply if you would like to learn more about wine, then it seems there are a number of learning tools out there. Even ones for your Android smartphone or tablet. In fact, you might be surprised as to how many apps are currently available. Well, to try and help sort through the app offerings, below are ten Android apps for wine lovers that you might want to check out.
Vivino Wine Scanner
Starting today's list is a sort of all-in-one wine app. Vivino is designed to provide you with all sorts of information on all types of wine including prices, ratings and so on. Not to mention, you can use your camera to simply take an image of a wine bottle label to find out about the wine.
Wine Searcher is rather self-explanatory and provides a database of over 7 million wines to help you find the exact wine you are looking for and gives you a rough idea of prices too. The UI is not as nice as the last app, but the selection is quite big.
Delectable Wine - Scan & Rate
Delectable Wine is a very similar app to Vivino and offers much of the same features. As such, you can again find out all sorts of information on a variety of different wines. And you can also use the camera to snap the label and find information this way.
Hello Vino - Wine Guide
Hello Vino is another all-in-one type app and looks to be your pocket guide solution to wines. As such, you can quickly get wine recommendations, pairing suggestions for certain foods, wines ideas for gifts and all from your app. Not to mention, you can again use your camera to identify certain wines.
Wine Enthusiast Tasting Guide
If you are a regular reader of the Wine Enthusiast magazine, then this might be the app for you. This is the accompanying app and offers a searchable database of all wines and the ability to read editor reviews on each of the wines. Not to mention, you can create your own reviews too.
While most of the apps available are designed to tell you what they think about wines, Wine Note is more of a journal app where you can create your own impressions of wine and keep them together in one common place. Sort of like a wine diary.
SWE Wine and Spirits Trivia
If you already think you know all there is to know about wines, then Wine and Spirits Trivia is designed to test your knowledge. This quiz app offers 500 questions over ten difficulty levels to make sure there is a question and level to suit everyone.
This app is not exactly a dedicated wine app but is certainly one worth checking out if you are into your wines, recipes or food. This app looks to combine the three elements to provide you with one app which can offer recipes for certain dishes and pair a drink to go with them.
Wine Price and Wine News
This app won't be for everyone but if you are interested in the price of wines and especially at the higher end, then this is a good app to try. Wine Price and Wine News offers details on over a million wine auctions as well as overviews of the wine pricing industry.
If all this talk of wine is starting to make you think about making your own wine, then Wine Making is a wine making forum app where you can find out about grapes, equipment and even recipes. Great for those who want to take their love of wine to a new level.
