Thanks, man, what a great app. Wandering around the house taking photos of wine bottle labels ...

Wife is downloading it as we speak ...

Gotta luv the 21st Century =D>

Didn't want to hijack the oke's sales thread any more so posting this here.

5* rating all around.

Definitely leading the herd in terms of useful and easy apps to use.

He should release one for Whisky and Beer too. There are a few apps around for those, but are nowhere near the level of Vivino. (Have tried using untapd and whizky)

Wifey and I at the bottle store. Taking photos left, right and centre. Ooing and aahing over cellphone app info. Eventually manager becomes curious/suspicious. When we were leaving he had already downloaded the app and was on the phone to another branch manager to clue him in as well :lol:
