WIRED, with partner Gizmodo, tested and rated more than 400 apps for the first-ever WIRED App Guide. The special issue, on newsstands October 4, rates apps on the 10-point WIRED performance scale, noting ‘WIRED’ and ‘TIRED’ features, price and on which platforms each app is available. Later this month, the WIRED App Guide will also be available as an app for iOS and Android smartphones. The app version of the guide will feature regular updates plus reviews of new and noteworthy apps from the editors of WIRED.
Both WIRED and Gizmodo recognize four of Bottle Rocket’s apps as essential apps in the 2011 WIRED App Guide of 400 Essential Apps.
The lucky winners include:
- NPR News (editor's pick for News)
- NPR Music
- SPIN Play
- Civil War Today
