Find The Best Stuff Around You With Village Voice Media?s ?Best Of ?? App
In the era of crowd-sourced recommendation services it's hard to remember that people actually recommend stuff for a living. My old employer Village Voice Media, which built the foundation of its 14 print publications and 20 online properties like the SF Weekly and The Village Voice by mostly doing just that, has today taken these efforts mobile with its "Best Of" app. With "Best Of," VVM has taken its already existant "Happy Hour" and "City Guides" apps one step further, partnering up again with GoTime in order to create an recommendations app that utilizes the premium content produced for VVM's yearly "Best Of" issue. Just open the GPS-enabled app in order to get editorially-curated local recommendations in the Food and Drink, Arts & Entertainment, Sports and Recreation and Shopping and Services categories.
