Tequila Sunrise iPhone App

When I got my new iPhone last summer one of the first things I did was search for tequila app that would give me a list of brands and tasting notes. At that time, there was nothing.

However, just last week I did the search again and a tequila app popped up. It’s called “Tequila Sunrise” and is currently priced at $0.99. It lists around 700 tequila brands, as well as the distiller’s name, the NOM, tequilas onto a favorites list.

Of course, a glaring omission is the lack of tasting notes, but the maker of the app claims that this will be available in a forthcoming version.

I searched for a couple of new brands – Alien and PaQui – and they weren’t yet listed. All of the brands are stored offline and information cannot be updated over the Internet. It seems like they can only add new brands with new versions.

I like the fact that the app includes the NOM, but it would be cool if it also let you see what other tequilas a particular distillery makes. Knowing the tequila’s region is also helpful, and it’s definitely smart to include whether the tequila is 100% agave or not.

Overall, I’d give this app two stars out of five. With the tasting notes, they could push toward four stars. Version 1.4 is supposedly due out shortly and will be priced at $1.99. I’m eager to see how this app progresses.
