Cognac Companion for Android is a complete cognac guide for the curious amateur as well as for the experienced collector.
The App comes with detailed information and pictures of 600 cognacs (V.S., V.S.O.P., Napoleon, XO, Hors d'Age and Extra) from 120 brands.
The pre-loaded data for cognac (Brand, Name, Age, Cru, Alcohol strength, Bottle Size, Description) and brand (Status, Visitor Center, Founded, Address, Map location, Tel, Email, Web address) can easily be changed, or you can also create new cognacs and brands with your own pictures.
Clicking on a picture of a brand or a cognac will maximize the picture size.
You can share your brand and cognac information with other. Users can create accounts on CognacCompanion's network server for ** FREE **, and then upload their own brands and cognacs. After approval of uploaded material, can uploaded brands and cognacs be searched and downloaded by other users.
The app has a ** FREE ** cloud backup feature that allows users to backup and restore all personal brand visit notes, cognacs, tasting notes, etc. to CognacCompanion's network server.
As more data (content) is published, new brands and cognacs can be downloaded to the app's database. These updates will not affect your user data in the database.
Notes from brand visits can be added to each brand, and detailed comments, tasting notes and ratings may be added to a cognac.
All brands visited and cognacs tasted will then be available in the “My Cognacs” section, which also includes a wish-list functionality.
Most of the brands have map-location for integration with Google Map. When clicking on a brand location, Map will launch, and this can be switched to Street-View. It is then possible to virtually walk around the brand.
You can create your own tasting event with picture and key information. Then you can link cognacs to the event and add your tasting notes to those cognacs.
The app also has a zoomable map of Cognac.
After installation of the App, the database should be downloaded over a network connection as the database is around 40 MB.
