Worth every penny
Largest repository of WS reviews. An indispensable tool to get the right bottle no matter where you are. Highly recommended!
Update to earlier review - WS application support team is excellent
I have deleted my earlier review about the application becoming unstable. After I wrote that review the WS support team contacted me within hours of the review being posted. I worked with level 1 and level 2 support. It turned out that the problems I experienced could not be reproduced, which is not uncommon in the computer world. I reinstalled and the app has been working fine. It may have been a problem during the initial install. My recommendation is that if you run into any problems with the app hanging or crashing, uninstall the app and reinstall it. It worked for me. Also, based on the other reviews it seems like my issue was an isolated incident.
I also want to point out that the WS support team CONTACTED ME to understand the problem in more detail. This is very unique in today's support environment. So if you do have a problem, let them know and I'm sure you will get to a timely resolution.
Gotten better over the years, could be improved
This app has been around forever. If you look at the reviews some of them stretch back 7 years. I've used this off and on during that time, and it's gone from a borderline useless app to one that is pretty useful.
I agree that the WS subscription model requires you pay separately for this, print magazines, and online access, but that aside this app is worth a few bucks a month if you buy wine regularly. Many times ratings labels in stores are for different vintages or releases, so it's good to double check.
My one suggestion to improve this app would be to filter based on number of cases released. Many of the higher rated wines have very limited releases so it would be nice to sort out the ones you know you won't ever find in the local stores. Also adding the ability to filter multiple years. Currently you can only filter by one year at a time.
