App review: Had a glass brings big value on cheap wines

On the heels of Valentine’s Day, here is a great app to increase your knowledge of fine wines (at totally reasonable prices).

HadAGlass is $2.99 in the app store, and after downloading it on my iPhone a few days ago, it’s already paid for itself. This app features 100 of the best wines under $20 — since it gives such a detailed recommendation, I was able to save money on the wine I wanted, making the ~$3 purchase point of the app worthwhile.

I looked like a wine pro, and all it took was a 30 second download, 5 minutes on the app (on the bus, on the way to the liquore store) and a quick trip through the aisles.
