Earlier today a friend of mine invited me to join Vivino, a wine app. From first use I understood it, liked it, and would use it again. The apps easy to use UI is really what gets me excited. A simple, almost Twitter like, feed on the front page and only four options of what to do. You can browse this feed and see wines the people you follow have ranked, you can check what wines you’ve already ranked, check out recommendations and wines across all of Vivino’s platform, and (the best part) get locations for places that have wine near you.

When I got my new Samsung Galaxy S4 I quickly realized it’s potential in new curation. I had all my news and updates flashing before me, and a lot of which I want to read but am not able to at the moment. I like Evernote, but I stumbled upon Pocket (@Pocket) when browsing for article curators, and this is bar none the best.

Before we left for our entrepreneurial adventure to Dallas, Marikha (@marikhacabel) and I needed to find a new mapping application for me to use. I have an iPhone 4S, and at the time we were leaving Ann Arbor for Dallas the 2nd beta for iOS came out. When you used the mapping application it had a problem with overheating the phone and a problem crashing often, so I wanted something more reliable. We stumbled upon Waze (@Waze) who had recently been bought by Google for 1.1 billion dollars, so we were interested. We downloaded the app and hit the road and saw an immediate difference in the beauty of Waze over any other mapping system.
