From apps that will help you choose your next beer or wine when you grocery shop to a new email app from the Gmail team, you’re bound to find something you’ll like.

Next Glass scans beer and wine bottles to help you find your favourite drink.

With over 23,000 bottles tested and in its system, Next Glass is a powerful tool for predicting whether you'll like that case of beer or new brand of wine. Once you tell the app what drinks you like, you can scan the label of the bottle and you'll see a personalised score and the nutritional information, including the alcohol by volume.
