Top Android App: Hello Vino – Wine Pairings

Hello Vino takes the confusion and intimidation out of picking the perfect bottle of wine.

  • Version: 1.03
  • Size: 874KB
  • Category: Lifestyle
  • Price: Free



Hello Vino gives you wine recommendations for food pairings, special occasions, holidays, and taste preference. When you first open the app you will have to download the latest wine data (should only take a minute). Then you can narrow down your search based on the options above.

For the example shown in the screenshots below, the selections made were: pair wine with a meal -> meat -> poultry -> chicken -> grilled. This will then return three wines; one with high acclaim, one with a great value, and one at random. From there just select the wine name to get the full details, which include its region, average price, vintage, points awarded, and a description. If the first three wines don’t fit your fancy, click the “get more recommendations” button to refresh the list.

Pros:

  • Thousands of wine & food pairings
  • Efficient questions help you find the perfect wine, fast
  • Conquer the wine aisle like an expert



Areas for improvement:

  • Larger database of wine reviews/ratings
  • Social share function (SMS, Facebook, Twitter…) to get others’ opinions



Conclusion: The best wine related Android app currently available. Become a true wine aficionado.

  1. Thanks for the great review!

    You’re right on with the areas for improvement, and we’re currently tackling those as we speak.

    Allowing anybody with an Android device to use the Hello Vino app is extremely important to us, so we built it for versions 1.5, 1.6, 2.1, and 2.2…

    Unfortunately, this restricts some of the features we can ship in our “version 1.0″ of the Hello Vino app. Most notably, the Twitter and Facebook features that allow you to share your favorite wines and pairings with your friends. However, as more users upgrade their devices to Android version 2.1+, we will be releasing free updates to the app that include these social features.

    Keep the feedback coming, we love it!

    Cheers!
    The Hello Vino Team
