Release of WhiskyCompanion 1.06 for Android devices

Today WhiskyCompanion announced the release of WhiskyCompanion ver. 1.06 for Android mobile devices.

WhiskyCompanion for Android is a complete whisky (or whiskey if you prefer) guide for the curious amateur as well as for the experienced collector.

The App comes with detailed information and pictures of more than 2.300 whiskies (rye, malts, single malt, cask strength, blended, etc.) from 211 distilleries in 18 countries.

The pre-loaded data for whiskies and distilleries can easily be changed, or the user can create new whiskies and distilleries supported by own camera pictures or pictures uploaded to the phone.

Whiskies might be found through countries, regions or distilleries. The app also has full text search functionality for whiskies making it very easy to find your favorite whisky in the massive list.

As more data (content) is published, new countries, distilleries and whiskies will be added to the central database that can easily be downloaded to the app’s database. These updates will not affect modified user data in the phone’s database.

Notes from distillery visits can be added to each distillery, and detailed comments and tasting notes (classifications) may be added to the whiskies. All distilleries visited and whiskies tasted and rated will then be available in the “My Whiskies” section. This section also includes a wish-list for whiskies.

Most of the distilleries have map-location for integration with Google Map. When clicking on a distillery location, Map will launch, and this can easily be switched to Street-View. It is then possible to virtually walk around the distillery.

The app is available as an introductory offer at NOK 17,50 (US$ 2,95) on Android Market.

For more information please search Android Market for “whisky” or “WhiskyCompanion”, or visit www.whiskycompanion.com.
