[prMac.com] San Francisco, California - Hello Vino, LLC has announced the launch of a new version 3.0 of its iPhone app with innovative wine shopping features, a universal iPad app and completely new iOS7-inspired design. To celebrate the launch, Hello Vino is offering $50 vouchers towards wine at Naked Wines through a new partner program. Users need only download the new version 3.0 of the free Hello Vino app to receive their $50 credit.
The free app, available through Apple App Store, recommends the perfect bottle of wine according to meals, special occasions, or personal taste preferences. Serving as a personal wine assistant, shoppers answer a few simple questions within the app to receive specific wine brand recommendations available for purchase at both local retail stores or directly through the app.
The new 3.0 release of the Hello Vino app adds an "Insider Deals" feature highlighting wine discounts curated from multiple sources. In addition, a groundbreaking "Wines on Demand" ordering feature where shoppers can request wines for delivery to their homes or be directed to a nearby retailer that carries the specific bottle. Every wine within the app is available for purchase, whether the sale is fulfilled by an online retail partner, directly by participating wineries or picked up at a nearby retail location listed within the app.
"The Hello Vino app acts as a personal wine assistant in stores, restaurants and at home," remarks Rick Breslin, Founder of Hello Vino. "While nearly every wine-related mobile app caters to the collector or 'wine geek,' Hello Vino was instead developed for the majority of wine consumers seeking assistance with their wine purchases."
Other new and enhanced features include audio pronunciations of wines, expert wine reviews from Certified Sommelier and podcast celebrity Elizabeth Schneider, and real-time image recognition technology that returns flavor descriptions, ratings and food pairings for a wine by taking a photo of its label. Multi-device support has also been added to version 3.0, allowing users to access their wine photos and track purchases across both iPhone and iPad devices.
