More than two decades of Miami's best is available today on our new Best
Of... app for iPhone. That's right. You can check out categories like Best Dance Club, Best New Restaurant, Best Bar, Best Hotel, and many others.
The app lets you check out not only current winners -- this year's issue is due out in June -- but also those of past years. Plus it determines your location and lets you know what Best Of winners are nearby. And if you've visited a Best Of winner, you can click "Check In" and earn badges along the way.
As TechCrunch points out, our Best Of choices aren't user generated, instead what it has "going for it is it's expert (not crowd-sourced) curation." Those experts happen to be people like us, the editorial staff of the Miami New Times.
And the app goes beyond just Miami. It also helps you scan for winners at other Village Voice Media locations such as New York, Los Angeles, and Denver, as well as other popular markets like Chicago, Las Vegas, and Washington, D.C.
Best of all, the app is free. All you have to do is go here to download the Best Of app, or search "best of" in the app store. Got an Android phone? Expect a version for the mobile OS to come out sometime in April. And for all other mobile devices or desktops, you can visit bestof.voiceplaces.com to access all the wealth of information available on the app.
