I wanted to switch gears today and talk about the new Cor.kz application offered for the iPhone. To date, I have resisted the urge of purchasing the iPhone, but that may change after seeing the new software up close and personal. I’ve been a big fan of the CellarTracker website from day 1, which boasts the largest online collection of wine information in the world. Everything from tasting notes to drinkability reports, CellarTracker has it covered. My only complaint, the poor interface and lack of available technology to leverage the database and extend the user experience. Imagine walking into a wine store, and having instant access to over 530,000 wines in the palm of your hand.
I guess I wasn’t the only one with this idea. The new Cor.kz software application was released late last year and is the first software to tap into the growing CellarTracker database. The application cost is $4.99 and is available via the iTunes App Store. We were setup and logged into the app in no time and accessing my personal cellar. The software also integrates seamlessly with Twitter and Facebook, enabling the user to announce the wines they’re currently drinking. From the graphics to the domain name (seriously, how cool is Cor.kz with the Kazakhstan extension), this software will change the way you drink wine.
