SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--
released today a brand new version of their critically acclaimed iOS
wine app, adding real-time image recognition and extensive wine data to

real-time image recognition brings our users accurate information and
trusted reviews from our world-class community, instantly, to help
everyone learn about any wine they encounter."
Real-time image recognition lets you take a photo of any
wine label and get instant identification of the wine maker, wine name,
grapes, region, community ratings and reviews, plus the option to
quickly purchase for home delivery. With average identification in 2.6
seconds, it delivers information about any wine in front of you, turning
your iPhone (News - Alert) into an indispensible tool to guide your wine-purchasing
decisions. It's quick and easy to use in wine shops, grocery stores and
restaurants to help you decide which wine to buy. The new recognition
system gives you the option simply scan to learn more via wine
portraits, or save a wine to your personal profile and share with the

and reviews from the world-class Delectable community into a single
dynamic and digestible view to tell the story of any wine you encounter.

winemakers, sommeliers, wine writers and tastemakers using Delectable,
giving you access to the deepest wine knowledge bank that has ever
existed. Wine portraits compile ratings from both pros and the entire
community, letting you choose whether you prefer to rely on
professionals or the wisdom of the crowd.

portraits are delivered with the same best-in-class accuracy that has
won over wine professionals and critics worldwide. Boldly declared the
"only app worth a damn" by leading wine blogger and educator Alder
Yarrow, Delectable was also awarded the only perfect score by
legendary wine expert Jancis Robinson's publication, "Delectable is a
brilliant, brilliant piece of programming. It defeats every other
label-recognition app on the market for one simple reason: it identified
every label 100% accurately with no corrections required." (Richard
