We're not typically in the business of shameless self-promotion here at New Times, but we'll make an exception to toot our own horn over recent accolades for our "Best of" smartphone app, which apparently is pretty friggin' awesome.
In fact, our new app has been listed in the iTunes' year-end "Rewind" list as one of the five best travel apps of the year.
The techies over at Wired.com found our new app equally fetching, describing it as "What Yelp would be if only the cool kids could post reviews."
The app's pretty rad -- it compiles the "Best of" issues from New Times and other Village Voice Media publications across the country. Open her up in most major cities and it'll give you the best restaurants, bars, clubs, and everything else that's nearby.
The best part: it's free -- click here for the free download.
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
