Even if you’re not a wine connoisseur, it can still be nice to get out and hoist up a nice glass of Merlot every once and a while. Wine tastings or wine dinners can also be a nice change of pace for those who have tired of the standard dinner and a movie. However, since most wine events rarely follow a regular schedule and can be held in a variety of irregular venues all over Chicagoland, the LocalWineEvents.com Android app can be a fine resource to find one near you.
The app isn’t new, as a matter of fact, it has been around since the year old Google Play Store was called Android Market, but as of yesterday, they made available a long overdue refresh to the UI that increases the usability tenfold. From the home screen with its multi-colored tiles directing you to different sections of the app, the new easy to read sans-serif font, and clean white background, it’s evident that it was designed with ease of use in mind. It’s basically everything the old version wasn’t in that regard.
The app is divided into four main sections, those being:
Upcoming Events- a general list of all the upcoming wine events listed in chronological order
Featured-a list of some higher-profile events they are promoting
Ticket Deals-Groupon style discounts for a few upcoming events
Weekend Juice-A list of just the events coming up this weekend
The new version of their app is available for free on the Google Play App store, just search for “Wine Events”.
