Love wine? Discover new wines and keep track of favorites with Vivino
If you'll be impressing your significant other with a carefully selected bottle of wine this Valentine's Day, or if you just have a weakness for the elixir of the gods, then here's an app you should try. It is called Vivino, and as you can probably tell, it is dedicated to the popular beverage. In essence, this handy little piece of software is like your own catalog for wines – you add and rate the ones that you've tried for future reference. But there's a lot more that the app can do.

With Vivino you can scan the labels of bottles of wine and the app will display detailed information about it within seconds, pulled straight from its database of over 2 million wines. Furhermore, it will present you with an average rating for that particular wine based on scores given by other Vivino users. Once you've used the app for a while, it will be able to come up with recommendations based on wines that you've had previously. You may also follow the many featured users of the app and get regular reviews on all kinds of wines. 

All of this functionality is provided to you free of charge. If you don't mind spending a few bucks, however, you may download the premium version of Vivino. It comes with a few extra perks including additional tools for maintaining your personal database of wines. 

Developer: VivinoDownload: Android, iOS
Category: Food & DrinksPrice: Free (Premium version costs $4.99)

As someone who enjoys drinking wine, yet knows nothing about choosing one off the shelf, I love to try this app, were it compatible with my Nexus 5, which, one would think, should be compatible with almost any app.
