The Wire Rewind app

The Wire Rewind app

The Wire Rewind app uses augmented reality to create a special audiovisual cover of The Wire's Rewind 2017 issue (issue 407, January 2018).

You can download the app for free by searching for "Wire Rewind" in the App Store or Google Play. Then just point your camera at the cover of the magazine to explore the sound and additional artwork.

The app functions most effectively with a copy of the printed magazine laid flat in good lighting conditions. But it can also be used with an image of the magazine cover on a screen.

If you are a digital subscriber, we recommend that you print out the cover using your Exact Editions Wire app.

Alternatively download the pdf.

The Wire January 2018 issue is on sale from 7 December 2017. You can buy the issue on the newsstand or via our online shop.

The Wire's Rewind 2017 cover was designed by Ben Weaver Studio with sound by Patrick Ward. The Wire Rewind app was developed by Tibor Udvari and Philippe Karrer of Spheres Studio.
