U.K.’s Red Pages Name The Country Trio To Their
“Hot 100” Celebrity List for 2012


The iTunes and App Store Affiliate Team are showcasing a few of their favorite implementations of their new widgets. Topping the list is The Boot’s use of the Album Discovery widget for The McClymonts’ 2011 Wrapped Up Good launch. Other widget employment selections include One Republic’s and Lady Gaga’s websites. In addition, the girls also received outstanding recognition this week with the announcement that they were selected for Red Pages Hot 100 Celebrities for 2012.
Apple received hundreds of emails with screen shots of widget placements and selected a few favorites to showcase. The screen shot of The McClymonts’ album launch shown on The Boot’s website leads the list. The Album Discovery widget allows websites to feature an album with the artwork, artist, name, price and track listing with the ability to preview each song.

Widgets can help online sites and blogs create and customize a friendlier and more interactive user experience.

Returning for its sixth year, the annual Red Pages Hot 100 predicts the next big things in film, TV, music, fashion, literature, new media, sports and politics.
