Corkbin Has Gone Social!

12 Jan

It’s an exciting day today at Corkbin HQ! The next major release of Corkbin is now available for download in the App Store. This is the long-awaited release that introduces the concept of “friending”. Now it’s possible to follow your friends on Corkbin, seeing what wines they are uncorking, and bookmark wines that your friends love!

Turning on Friending is simple. First, go to Settings and enable the “Friending” option.

Once you’ve done that, you can search for friends to follow in the “Friends” tab.

You can search using either a person’s email address or name. For privacy reasons, it’s only possible to follow other users that have also enabled Friending.

And Voila! you’ll now see wines your friends uncork whenever, and wherever.

    tip: The best way to discover friends around you is to switch to the Nearby section and to open a wine detail – the wine owner shows up at the bottom of the wine detail page, you can add him/her from there… :o)

    It seems this feature is available only for iPhone. I can’t see it on my Android version…
