App Reviews

  • Double billing

    By mark 1118
    I have to agree with the previous review. This is a class action lawsuit waiting to happen. I subscribed to wine spectator for 59.95/year. Only to discover a monthly billing from apple for 2.99/ month. Now here is the rub: I cancelled my subscription to wine spectator in July of last year. How can Apple continue to Pay wine spectator for a subscription I cancelled with wine spectator. Why didn’t wine spectator tell apple I cancelled. When you go to the wine spectator website from your phone it automatically shows you the download app from App Store. On wine spectators site there are multiple subscription options one of which is digital access. You would assume as a consumer that purchasing an online subscription when there is a option provided by apple to download the app that they would be one and the same. This is a deceptive practice. Hopefully there is a lawyer that will read the review prior to purchasing that will take the case. Mark
  • Monthly fee but no monthly update?

    By OGEWU
    I find it hard to believe that, with it being January 4, you haven’t added any new wines or made any updates since November 20. If you can’t update every month or sooner, you shouldn’t charge a monthly fee.
  • Nonsense info

    By Sempersteve14
    If you are new to wine this app is fantastic. However once you have immersed yourself into the world of wine for a while the articles and info seem childish. I only kept it for the Matt Kramer articles and now they disappeared. So...
  • Monthly fee?

    By Laurlyne
    I’m already a subscriber to WS and I thought this would be a nice complement to the magazine so that when I’m at the wine store, I can look for the ones I’ve flagged as interesting. But $3 per month for the app when I already have the information I need through purchasing the magazine seems silly. I would have possibly paid a one time fee of $10 or $15 but I’m not paying for yet another monthly subscription. I was really hoping for something better.
  • Amazing!

  • Amazing app!

    By MarisaR11
    Whether you are a wine expert or new to the category, you will love this app! Helps me with my decisions when I’m at the store buying for myself or trying to impress clients at dinner. I don’t trust any other wine reviewer - Wine Spectator is the best and my most trusted!
  • Very informational

    By winelover93
    It’s always fun to learn about wine, but nowadays there’s too much information out there. Wine Spectator is the industry standard, so it’s great to learn from the best!
  • Crashing all the time now

    By Bamminc
    The app is constantly crashing on me now. Whatever fix you did did not help me. I even deleted it and lost all of my data in favorites. And when I downloaded it it's still crashes. What's that about? Very bummed out
