Wine Explorer is an iPhone app for finding wines at Trader Joe's. The user can search for a wine based on their specific criteria and view a wine's profile which includes background information, reviews, food pairing, and similar wines. Scanning a wine label and viewing most popular wines are also features.
Wine Explorer is my graduate thesis project for the Academy of Art's Web Design & New Media Program. All students must come up with a product idea and take it through all the necessary steps (planning, user experience and testing, design, development). My project planning began in the Fall of 2011 and is expected to be completed during the Summer of 2013.
My current plan is to develop the application using HTML/CSS and Jquery mobile and possibly bundling it using PhoneGap.
A blog is maintained to keep track of the project's current status.
