There's an APP for That...

Love my food and wine

Vivino is one of my go to apps when I need to know about a par­tic­u­lar wine. It is a bit like the Tripad­vi­sor of wines. You take a photo of the la­bel of the bot­tle and then you can ac­cess ratings, re­views and pric­ing. This is ex­tremely use­ful if you are trav­el­ling and are un­sure of the wine you are se­lect­ing. The re­views are sub­mit­ted by in­di­vid­u­als.

Re­cently I was trav­el­ling to Al­bury on the Vic­to­rian bor­der. We wanted to find a good pub for lunch. I find Google Maps is great for this. Once you set your des­ti­na­tion and be­gin, you then have the op­tion to search. Stan­dard set­tings are petrol sta­tions, restau­rants and su­per­mar­kets. I clicked on the Search icon and typed 'Pub'. We chose a pub at Ju­giong which Google told us was a quick de­tour and had been rated at 4.5 stars. It was a great stop and good to get away from the large ser­vice cen­tres along the high­way.

I have also used the vi­aMiche­lin app when I trav­elled in France for lo­cat­ing good restau­rants. The app lists all restau­rants that have been Miche­lin re­viewed and ad­vise price cat­e­gories along with di­rec­tions and con­tact de­tails.

There are over 2 mil­lion apps avail­able. These are just a few that I have found through­out the years of help­ing peo­ple with their Ap­ple de­vices and com­put­ers.

If you are strug­gling to un­der­stand your Ap­ple de­vice, please give me a call and we can dis­cuss One to One classes. Or per­haps you have a group of friends who would like to learn how to use their iPhone cam­era? How about a three hour Photo to Frame work­shop!
