Corkbin 2.5: Label Recognition, Offline, Wine.com / Wine-Searcher integration & More

19 Nov

We are thrilled to announce a new version of Corkbin, available in App Store and Google Play. This is a highly anticipated release with a number of enhancements for wine lovers on the go!

New Features:

  • Offline mode – add wines during your cellar tasting or when travelling abroad where data connection may be unavailable.
  • Wine label recognition – automatically detects the name of the wine you’ve uncorked.
  • Mobile wine shopping – integration with Wine.com and Wine-Searcher.
  • Wine postagram – send wine postcards through Sincerely.com (iOS only).
  • Graphical enhancements.
Below are some of the details of these new features…

Offline Mode

For those who frequent wine caves with spotty data coverage, Corkbin operates in offline mode so you’ll never miss the opportunity to capture a memorable bottle. Wines added offline are synchronized once data connectivity becomes available. Simply open Corkbin and the app will take care of the rest.

Wine Label Recognition

Powered by IQ Engines, Corkbin now recognizes the name your wine. The process is automatic and works in the background.

Wine Label Recognition

Mobile wine shopping

Corkbin now includes the integration of Wine.com, which allows users to buy wines directly from your phone. For users outside of the United States, Corkbin will query Wine-Searcher to locate an online merchant near you. Simply click the “Find” or “$” button  and Corkbin will do the rest.

Wine Postagrams

Available for iOS only. Corkbin works with Sincerely.com to send your wine label photos as physical postcards to anyone in the world. What an original way to share  your wine discoveries!

Corkbin can be downloaded from App Store and Google Play (or update directly on your phone). Enjoy!

Corkbin featured in The Daily

As a reader of The Daily, you can imagine my pleasure and excitement to be sipping on my morning coffee, reading the Tech and Apps section and stumbling upon a review of Corkbin for iPhone in a special wine feature.

Many thanks to The Daily for their kind words – and I hope that your friend enjoys that pinot ;)

On the 6th Day of Christmas…

30 Dec

Now, calling Vodafone your true love may seem a bit far some, but we’re pretty darn happy with them and I’m betting that the residents of the Czech Republic will be too because today, Vodafone gave them Corkbin!

Vodafone is running a Christmas campaign where on each of the 12 days of Christmas, they give their users a free App. So – courtesy of Vodafone Czech, Corkbin is now free!

In the Czech Republic, go check out the Vodafone 12 days of Christmas App & download Corkbin for free. Shhh.. but for any of you outside of the Czech Republic, we’ve decided to make it free for everyone this Christmas, so get downloading!

I hope you enjoyed as much great wine this Christmas as we did and I’ll leave you with this rather-amusing Czech-language Vodafone commercial from last year… at least, I’m told it’s amusing!

 

See you in 2012,

The Corkbin Team
