And Now, Our Best App Ever: The "Best Of" App



Allow me to introduce you to The Company's Best Of app for the iPhone, which has just launched to great acclaim. Long story short: Need to know best place to get a strong drink? Done. Best convenience store in which to eat a meatball sub? Boom. Best record store? Click. Download from the iTunes store. Right now. It's not even behind a pay wall.

And before you jump into the comments wondering where your Android app is, it's coming -- April, so "they" say. Or, hell, just go here on your desktop or mobile device.

Incidentally, it's not merely an at-the-touch-of-your-finger recap of the Dallas Observer's most recent Best of Dallas issue, but a compilation of 32 cities' best-ofs -- from Atlanta and Austin to Washington, D.C. Says the memo from the boss: more than 10,000 to-dos from which to choose. So it's perfect for you, glamorous traveler. You too, person who never travels outside the 635 loop.

The perfect companion to our calendar app. And happy hour app.

Sure did get meta here all of a sudden. Unfortunately I'm a BlackBerry guy.

That's all well and good, but how about an app for your actual CONTENT?

Robert,

Has VVM also developed an app for their employees and its online ad customers to anonymously and repeatedly comment on the sex traffic articles written by Nick Pinto and earlier by Pete Kotz? IJS.

Face it, Android -- the developers just don't love you as much as iOS.

I believe the phrase is, "Preaching to the preacher."

Maybe not, but the most recent statistics show that Android users finally outnumber iOS, so it's only a matter of time before Android apps come out first.

Thanks, Big Bob - I figured you'd advocate such an app. Hopefully, the head honchos will soon see the wisdom of appifying all of the written greatness DO has to offer. "Schutze? There's an app for that!"

I've seen that study before, but it just doesn't pass the smell test. Follow the money -- developers aren't making money in the Android market, but they are making it in iOS, even with the walled garden. Statistics can lie, but people don't bullshit with their money.
