Wine Enthusiast Guide for BlackBerry is a new app to the BBCool Store that gives you details, reviews, ratings and retail prices for over 80,000 wines worldwide. The app brings around 1,000 additional reviews each month, as well as the ability to keep track of wine you own or want to purchase. This is all done through the “My Lists” section, where wines can be added as well as automatically backed up and restored.

Features breakdown:

  • Reviews and ratings for over 80,000 wines.
  • All wine listings include retail price.
  • Search any combination of wine style, variety, as well as price and rating.
  • Vintage Chart with 125 regions/wine styles.
  • The “My Lists” section lets you manage your favorites, cellar, recommendations.
  • Your lists can be automatically backed up and restored to a new smartphone.
  • Approx. 1,000 new wine reviews added each month.

More information available in the BlackBerryCool Store. Sadly, there is no free trial but if you’re a real wine enthusiast, this app is worth a try.

    Exelent app

    This app is not ready for primetime, certainly not when it costs $10.

    Issues I've found so far:

    1. Filtering down wine searches to correspond to certain regions doesn't work. When I select “Marlborough”, I don't expect to see Sonoma Coast Pinot Noirs come up.

    2. Reviews are ordered arbitrarily. For instance, when I select a certain wine, the reviews are neither in order of vintage nor in order of ranking. This is just a minor inconvenience/annoyance, but still pretty ridiculous given the cost of this app and the fundamental nature of this issue.

    3. “Search” feature could use improvement. Takes a while to scroll between “wines under $20″ and “wines under $100″, for instance. This is because the resolution of the search is in $1 increments. Does anyone really say “hmm, I want to search for wines under $93; definitely don't include anything between $93-95?” This resolution should be decreased to make it more user-friendly.

    4. Plenty of network connection lags when choosing certain options, particularly filtering by region.

    This is all I've found so far, in less than 15 minutes using it. I'm sure there are more…
