drinklobby, New Social Drinking App, Invites iPhone Users to Chill Out in Their Virtual Lounge
DENVER, April 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Gain exposure to a world of new beverages with drinklobby, the most comprehensive new social drinking app for the iPhone. drinklobby is a unique social enjoyment tool, unlocking for iPhone users a whole-new exploration of the world of beverages. The social drinking app is a drinks recommendation engine, a database for keeping track of what people drink, a wish list, and expert and user reviews of all manner of drinks. This makes drinklobby completely different from all other social drinking apps. It could not be easier to use — simply create a drink by clicking the “Drink!” button. Other users can see and post comments via the Live Drink Feed, which opens a whole host of features.
“Drinking is an inherently social activity, and the world is more connected today than ever before. I created drinklobby because I want people to continue to interact and have fun by sharing drinks through social media,” said Cesar Guinovart, one of the creators of the social drinking app. “It appeals to everyone from lovers of White Zinfandel to connoisseurs of fine Bordeaux; basic beer drinkers and lovers of local micro brews, sippers of fine whiskies and aged Single Malts and consumers of Cosmos and intricate mixed cocktails.”
drinklobby was created by veteran software mastermind, Cesar Guinovart, and his wife Natalie, a wine writer, Certified Sommelier and Certified Wine Educator who holds the London-based Wine and Spirit Education Trust Diploma. Together, they combined their passion for great wine, brews and spirits, technology, and the social aspect of sharing drinks with friends. drinklobby is Cesar’s first foray into mobile application and his relentless drive for quality and meticulous development skills have turned drinklobby into a remarkably polished, user-friendly and endlessly fun social drinking app for the iPhone.
Currently the social drinking app is geared towards alcoholic beverages, such as wine, beer, spirits, and mixed drinks. Future plans include integrating nonalcoholic beverages, Foursquare integration, specials and discounts on the beverages users are enjoying, and social drinking apps for LIKE and Android in future releases.
It couldn’t be easier to register drinklobby and start sharing drinks with friends. Furthermore, it is entirely up to the user how deeply they wish to engage the various features drinklobby offers, from keeping track of drinks, ratings, suggestions, wish lists, comments, and location based services to product information. Best of all, it’s currently free to download.
