Best Local iPhone App Denver 2010 - Denver Public Library's mobile phone app

Readers' Choice: Yelp's iPhone app

The Denver Public Library has always had its geeky side, from boasting DVD selections that rival Blockbuster to offering hordes of B-movies available for streaming online. But it may have outdone itself with a web portal it developed for smart phones. Not only can patrons search the online card catalogue in a format that's easy to read on their tiny screens, but thanks to a program called OverDrive Media Console, iPhone, Android and Blackberry users with a library card number can browse, download and listen to audiobooks directly from their phones. It's just like borrowing an old-fashioned book: When the title is due "back," you can no longer listen to it. Check it out.

Completely bogus winner. While apparently DPL does have an app, it is absolutely *not* what is reported here in the best-of. Someone should be ashamed, whether it's westword or DPL i'm not sure. DPL's app appears to be a knock-off of yelp, flook, etc. If i wanted that, i'd go download that. What i want is to browse DPL like the winner app was purported to give me access to. grrr.

Based on a Google search and within the iTunes store, there isn't an iPhone app by the Denver Public Library or a version of the OverDrive Media Console for the iPhone either. Simply browsing deverlibrary.org on an iPhone requires an immense amount of patience.

How exactly does a non-existent app win? What about MocaPay (based in Denver)? Or even Urbanspoon for discovering the best local restaurants.

Seems to me an editor forgot to do their homework.

Can't find OverDrive Media Console in the App Store.
