Metal Hammer Launch iPhone App

Here's the official release:

Metal Hammer has partnered with Yuza Mobile for the launch of its very own iPhone application.

Created by Yuza Mobile in their proprietary Hot Key publishing platform, the Metal Hammer application is available for FREE through the Apple iTunes store. The application is the first from Future´s special-interest portfolio, and complements Metal Hammer´s existing print, online and live event presence.

The Metal Hammer app is the loudest iPhone application for heavy metallers - promising fans of acts like Iron Maiden, Metallica, Lamb of God and Trivium up-to-the-minute insider news and exclusive on-the-road and backstage video content.

Bringing together content from the popular Metal Hammer website and its associated Facebook, Twitter and YouTube feeds, the iPhone application also gives fans the chance to buy music from iTunes, with playlist recommendations from metal´s biggest names to view regularly updated gig listings and even buy tickets.
