The WineGlass app will teach even the most common of peasants everything they need to know about the sophisticated beverage.

Wine menus are purposefully designed to confuse the hoi polloi, allowing those with even the slightest bit of knowledge to lorde it over their heads in an exaggerated show of superiority and false bravado. Needless to say, the wine crowd is a tough one to break into, as even the slightest hint of cluelessness will earn you scoffs and unbridled disdain.

Enter WineGlass, an application designed by former Facebook engineer Roddy Lindsey. Simply scan your indecipherable wine menu, and sit back as optical recognition software matches the wine with a database of corresponding reviews. With a click of a button, you'll be privy to information such as pricing and pairing advice. I'll drink to that!
