Pros and cons of Virginia Wine In My Pocket app for iPhone and iPad

Virginia Wine In My Pocket app good for

A few years ago my cousin took me to a Virginia winery -- it was great! (Who knew VA had wineries -- much less SO many!) Anyway -- when I saw there was a Sutro app on VA Wineries, I got it out of curiosity. Well, I found it to be a really nicely done app -- lots of useful info and well written -- and lots of photos too. Its a great app for those planning a trip to DC or northern VA who want to explore wineries. I cant wait to return to VA and explore all the wineries the app coveres. Excellent Job!
Not sure what VA Wine Sipper "paid" for, since this is a free app. And info loading is not a problem weve ever heard of. Dont be hating, VWS. Its not nice.

Some bad moments

Great concept, especially the "been there" function. Problem is, you can only add one winery to the list at a time. Try to add a second and the app locks. If you close the app then relaunch, the second winery has been added, but the process starts all over - add one..add two and it locks. Close, relaunch, repeat... It will take me forever to load in all the wineries Ive visited.
Great app, nice user interface, mapping functionality is excellent.Great write ups and photos. Photo content and vineyard descriptions very informative.
As a sommelier and wine educator who has spent a fair amount of time touring VA Wine Country, I still find this app useful and fun (sending photos to friends that are better than I can take on my phone). Highly recommended!
VA wine is a perfect app, I have many friends who love visiting wineries, and I am enthusiastic to find this helpful directory.. No more fumbling around with search engines trying to find a location for our field trips!! With VA Wines I have everything I need at my fingertips. The best part is I was born and raised in Virginia, and its great that some of these places are literally down the street from me! Happy tasting!
Great features including maps. Excellent resource for VA wine enthusiasts that will only improve with growth and time!
This app was really useful last time I was out in Virginia wine country!
