Portable Presents: The Society’s New App


AndroidWhen we launched The Society’s app for iPhone® last year, our proverbial mailbag from members seemed to be divided between those who were using it and those requesting an Android™ equivalent so that they could too. The disparity of devices covered by Android technology meant that this took a little while longer to develop, but it is nice to see that it seems to have gone down well thus far.

The app is free and available to download from Google Play™ Store. More information on its features can be found at

Although the app can only deliver to home addresses at present, a number of messages and tweets (such as that pictured) suggest members have found it a useful way to get their Christmas shopping done.

Whether a Society member or not, you can still enjoy a number of features on the app, such as our interactive Food & Wine Matcher, vintage chart and expert guides to aid wine choices when out and about.

All of which might come into its own at a time of year when food and wine are rightly brought to the fore in many people’s lives!

As ever, please do keep your feedback coming, whether via a comment, e-mail or our Twitter & Facebook pages. We hope you enjoy the app and find it useful.

    not much point in asking for a Windows Phone application I guess?

      Firstly, sincere apologies to subscribers who received notification of this post via e-mail today due to a technical glitch. Hopefully the content will nonetheless be of interest to those who haven’t downloaded the app yet.

      Thanks very much for your comment, Roger. While we have no immediate plans to launch a Windows Phone version of the app, all member suggestions are taken on board for future developments, and mobile is an area we’re looking at in detail this year.

    I have a Windows ‘Surface’ tablet. An app for Windows 8 would really be appreciated !

    Windows Phone is rapidly gaining market share, please can we have an app? A Windows 8 App afterwards would be great too!
