Wine Spectator’s flagship WineRatings+ app, which provides quick access to around 300,000 expert wine reviews, has been redesigned for the iPhone, with a new version added specifically for the iPad. The crisp, clean, new look takes advantage of iOS7 features and is even easier to use.
Designed for connoisseurs and casual wine drinkers, WineRatings+ is a comprehensive app that helps wine lovers make better choices, discover great values, learn about wine in general and stay updated on what’s new in wine. And now it can be used on all of your favorite iOS devices, whether you want to quickly look up a specific wine on your iPhone or iPod touch or browse editors’ recommendations and read articles on the latest iPad models.
Available now on the App Store, the new version of WineRatings+ is a free download, with a mix of free and premium content. At no charge, you can explore Wine Spectator’s definitive vintage charts, watch entertaining videos, read informative articles and scan the app’s timely news feed. For $2.99 per month, subscribers receive access to the entire database of wine ratings, which are automatically updated with more than 1,000 new reviews each month, no download required.
If you already have a subscription to WineRatings+ on your iPhone or iPod Touch, you can easily add your iPad to it. A single subscription can be installed on multiple devices using the same App Store account simply by tapping "Enable This Device" on the subscription screen.
Also new in this version, the app’s “Picks” section has been updated and expanded with additional lists of top wines and values. The "Top 100 Wines for 2013" contains our editors' latest list of the world's most exciting wines. "Value Sparklers for Special Occasions" showcases Champagnes and global sparkling wines with great scores at fair prices—just right for celebrations. And the frequently updated "Extreme Values" list highlights wallet-friendly wines, priced $12 or less, that are perfect for large parties and everyday drinking.
“The addition of an iPad version to WineRatings+ makes it even easier for wine lovers to access our deep database and rich content,” said Marvin R. Shanken, editor and publisher of Wine Spectator. “We believe subscribers will find the app even more useful now.”
