New York’s WhiskyFest App is Ready!
You will find so many whiskies (and non-whisky spirits, too!) at WhiskyFest™ New York. And don’t forget about the great seminars!
If you have a smartphone and a ticket to WhiskyFest New York, you really ought to have the app.
Why? Every whisky is listed and searchable. Want to see all of the Bourbons, or all of the Japanese whiskies? From the whisky list, tap on Sort, and select Category. You can also locate the whiskies on the map. All of the seminars and speakers are in here, too, along with the seminar schedule.
Want to take notes, rate the whiskies for your own records or to share with your friends or the world? You can do that, all from inside the app.
Create private free-form notes that you can email to yourself later. Simply touch the Add Notes link, found in each whisky’s description. That takes you to a screen where you can write free-form notes (be sure to note which whisky you’re writing about). The note will be auto-saved when you leave the page, and you can continue to go back and add notes to any whisky throughout the evening. When everything’s over, just tap Email All Notes to send them all to yourself in a neatly formatted email.
To post a public note about a whisky (or a picture of a tasty item on the buffet, or brag about what just happened in a seminar) on the Activity Feed: iOS users, use the note feature in the upper right corner; Android users, use the note feature in the bottom right corner, write your comments and post them.
At the end of the event, you can see all of the comments that you’ve posted to your activity feed, and you can follow other users to see what they’re saying. If you’d like, there’s an option to automatically re-post your Activity Feed comments — and photos — to Facebook or Twitter; use the hashtag #wfny to let the world know where you are.
Try them out, and see which method you prefer… it’s your choice!
At the Whisky Advocate booth, show us that you’ve downloaded the app, and get $5 off of a WhiskyFest t-shirt. This offer is only good at WhiskyFest, only on November 1, and is based upon availability.
Download it now! It’s completely free, and there are no in-app purchases. Get familiar with the features and you’ll be ready to navigate when you get to WhiskyFest. It’s live, now, and you can talk with others about what you’re looking forward to!
Don’t spend the night with your nose in your phone, of course; spend it with your nose in your glass, talking to your friends, and talking to the whisky celebrities. But when you want to tell the world how great the latest whisky you’ve found is, or find the next whisky, or post your selfie, or check the seminar schedule to try some very exclusive whiskies…we’ve got the app for you. WhiskyFest!
