Wilco Delivers Free iPhone App

We have to admit that when we heard Wilco was delivering an iPhone app, we kinda wondered what good it would be. But the fact of the matter is, that it's pretty cool. The *free* app for Apple's ubiquitous entry to the phone market is structured much like the band's website, and gives a similar navigational feel.

At the end of the day, that's basically what the app is: it takes the content from the band's website, and makes it easily accessible on the iPhone. While it's not exactly a miracle of modern technology, it is quite neat (and convenient) to have the band's tour dates, discography, and news in the palm of your hand. What's more, we do so much fiddling on our iPhone when we're bored, that it's a nice way to catch up on the band during our downtime.

So, yeah, it's pretty tough to argue with free, and when it's free and cool, well that's a no brainer. We gotta say - other bands should really get on this bandwagon.

Wave of the future. Wave of the future. Wave of the future.
