Need some wine, but unfamiliar with the area? The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board released an app for iPhone users that brings Fine Wine and Good Spirits to your pocket.
In the West Chester area, residents probably have a good working knowledge that state stores are located near the Acme on Paoli Pike or out on 322 by Giant.
However, the searchable features from the app will tell you where there are nearby shops. Better yet, the app is helpful in even more unfamiliar terrain—like it Hershey or Altoona.
The app, which is free and available on iTunes for those older than 17, also includes:
- Product browsing of the wine and spirits catalogs
- Real time pricing and inventory
- Product search capabilities
- Bottle scanner to identify product
Hosted by Apple’s third-party site, the app allows users to rate it. So far, 23 people have weighed in, with fairly favorable views, reading like this one: “Finding the nearest Wine and Spirits store is so clutch!”
