Drinking Apps in Offline Mode?

Recommended Posts

Hi, cruisers. I haven't had any luck with this one, so I thought I would ask. Are there any wine or beer ratings apps with databases that can be used in offline mode? I would like to research a little more about available wines and beers while on the ship, but I won't have internet access. I found out that Untappd has an offline-mode app called Tappd That (iOS), but the user accesses his or her own beer history rather than the entire Untappd database. I didn't find any wine app that has an offline mode at all aside from the ability to scan labels. It it would be useful to download an app that has a database with current and comprehensive ratings to help with selection (and more wines listed than the typical "top 100" list). Sort of like a sommelier in our pocket!

 

Thank you in advance.

Why don't you try it before you board? Download the app you want, put your device in airplane mode and see if it works.

I have done this with a few wine apps (e.g., Vivino, WineSearcher, etc.). Unless I build my own database (or "cellar") with my own notes and ratings, I can't access any information about wines, such as other people's or critics' ratings or reviews. Vivino is the closest, but I would have to create a cellar with all of the wines listed on Celebrity's wine menus and save it to My Wines. Lots of time and effort, and I would rather just download an already existing database if it's available. I don't think one is, though.
