The FNB Whisky Live expo kicked off in Cape Town last night, and the organisers have included a spiffy iPhone app (iTunes Link – FREE) to guide you through the festival this year.The festival runs to the 5th in Cape Town and then from the 10th – 12th in Jozi. Um…no Durbs :(
I downloaded the app yesterday to give it a run, and found that you actually have to sign up to use the app. This immeditatly put me off, so I closed it. Luckily I had a few minutes to spare later in the day, and I registred, albeit painfully. The form was a MISSION to use. Overall, not a very pleasant experience.
Anyways, my moaning aside, the app gives you all the ins & outs about the festival, as well as a floor plan of the exhibitions.
Here is more info from the apps iTunes description:
Whisky Live is the ultimate guide to the 2010 FNB Whisky Live
Festival, which is taking place from 3 – 5 November 2010 in Cape Town
and from 10 – 12 November
in Johannesburg. Not only is it your ultimate festival companion but
it also gives whisky lovers an application that they can use
throughout the year.
The new Whisky Live Festival application, provides whisky lovers with
a wealth of fun and interactive information on the festival, and about
their favourite whisky
brands. Navigate your way around the festival by downloading the app
onto your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad, and you’ll get a comprehensive
guide to the whiskies
available for tasting, as well as an indication of where you are
situated in the tasting hall. Most exciting is that each whisky will
be categorised by their lead flavour,
enabling you to discover a range of whiskies which suit your palate.
If you are going to be attending the festival and have an iPhone, I would suggest you download the app :)
