Pros and cons of Pocket Wine Pairing app for iPhone and iPad

Pocket Wine Pairing app good for

This app comes in so handy when we go on wine tasting tours. Either I use it during the tasting to learn about the varieties being served or I use it afterwards to look up the various terms that are used by the winery hosts. I am very much looking forward to having this app available when we go to Europe this fall, so many new varieties to sample.
Easily the best app for food and wine pairing. The guides for each food type make pairing easy and logical. Im also using the app now as my go to wine journal by adding all the wines I buy.
Tremendously helpful when it comes to matching food and wine. Amazing variety of different food and grapes including German synonyms like for instance Spätburgunder and Lemberger. Lots of details about wine styles and respective food companions.
Practical, useful and very well structured. Better then others out there. Will be using this all the time.
Given that the most important factor in the expression of a grape is the terroir (soil conditions, other climate-related factors) in which it is grown rather than the varietal itself, it would be great to have the abundant information found in this app to be organized according to region, too. In any case, this is a very good app and well worth the $4 to unlock all of its features. Well done and thanks!
Although I already know a fair bit about wine, I find this app very helpful. It is full of information right at your fingertips, and is a must-have app for any wine novice and/or experienced wine enthusiast. Highly recommended!

Some bad moments

The vast majority of the functionality of this app is locked unless you upgrade. Not surprisingly unimpressive.
If you want to know what wine to have with your food without knowing any more info about it then this app is for you but if you want more info about the wine then you need to upgrade and pay $3.99. Sorry but not really worth it. Maybe if it was .$99 instead.
Quick and easy to use with good pairings and very useful advice.
Nice interface and easy to use. All the basic information you would want to know about the varietals and pairings. Too expensive
Enjoying this app. It approaches wine in a novel way and is all the more refreshing for that. Very stylish and lovely to use. Would recommend the upgrade.
Ive purchased a number of wine apps for the purpose of pairing wine to food. Most were disappointing. This app not only does pairings well, but it also provides a lot of information about the grape ... and there are lots of grapes. Well worth the price. The upgrade is highly recommended. Since I purchased this app Ive used it for a number of reasons; pairings, grape info, etc. most everything I wanted was there. However, I found a few obscure grapes not listed. I contacted the developer who not only agreed that they will add the grapes, but they also included, in their reply, all the info about the grape. How cool is that. Responsiveness to the customer is outstanding!
