  1. Hello this is Ontario and I support local business (my wine cellar is exclusively Ontarios best) but why not an APP for Blackberries. Last I checked RIM was still an Ontario based company and one we should be proud of.

  2. Hi Douglas,

    If you look, this app is free to users, and free to wineries…my gift to them. I spent a good chunk of my hard-earned cash to build the app and give it away. I chose the easiest platform to build it on to keep the costs down, and had a friend who knew how to develop for IOS (and cut me a deal on the development costs or the app wouldn’t exist at all). I would love to get it onto other platforms but right now RIM is likely the most expensive to develop on (at least until BB10 OS comes out which supports Android apps). I have some ideas to generate revenue but I need to see some income before I can spend more on other platforms.
