New Times 'Best Of' App Gets Year-End Love From Wired, iTunes
Do you camp out by the newsstand every year waiting for our Best of Miami issue? Ever wish while you were on the road -- whether driving through Kendall thirsting for a great bar or spending a work week in K.C., Sacramento, or D.C. -- that some of that New Times wisdom could travel with you?
That's exactly why we made our free "Best Of" app for smartphones this year -- a map-loaded, citywide guide to 32 metropolises around the country with 10,000 picks for where to eat, hang out and get loaded in each. This week the mobile guide has gotten some year-end love from both Wired and iTunes, which calls "Best Of" one of the year's finest travel apps.
Wired reviewed the Best Of app a couple weeks back, calling it "what Yelp would be if only the cool kids could post reviews," and praising the quick access to phone numbers, maps and addresses for our picks.
In their App Store Rewind 2011 this week, iTunes ranked "Best Of" among the five top mobile aps this year for travelers.
Want to snag "Best Of" for yourself? It's a free download from the iTunes app store.
