Inspiration

Humans are forgetful. Everyone that has ever gone to a wine tasting tasted many great wines... only to forget the specifics when their day is done. Varietals is a full service wine concierge that will not only help you plan your wine tasting adventure but will also track your wine tastings as you go. Everything is centered around you. We recommend wine tastings you'd enjoy and allow you to have an amazing time without worrying about the specifics.

How it works

First, the app will help facilitate the ability to make an itinerary to wineries that specialize in the wines you'd like. It will also help with any additional travel plans you may need to make. When you arrive at the winery and begin your tasting you will have the ability to rate and leave a personalized note on every wine you try. The wines you tasted will be ranked in your diary of your events. We also provide data to allow you see what kinds of wines you tasted and what kind of varietals you enjoyed the most.

Challenges I ran into

Twitter was pretty hard to use. They don't by default have any services that let you work with users. You have to create your own against their REST API to do most things user related: https://dev.twitter.com/twitter-kit/android/api Also their latest Fabric SDK is some sort of weird invite only thing which requires plugins in the coder's development setup that requires logging in, a real disaster. The old open source Twitter4J project was a lot better.

The ESRI mapping kit goes a little too deep and could be simplified. Not as easy to use as it could be.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Being able to offer so many features in such a short period of time.
