UPDATE - 10/11@1:00PM: So far the app hasn't been very well received by fans. The lack of an Android version, its confusing user interface, general bugginess, and limited functionality are cited as the biggest issues. Here's a very informative YouTube video app walkthrough that demonstrates many of its flaws.

Rush has just made available a new R40 iPhone app that features Rush-themed games, news, historical tour dates and events in Rush history and more! They have also launched a contest where those who download the app could win a Custom 2112 Fender Signature Model Geddy Lee Jazz Bass Guitar or a Limited Edition Rush Starman Marshall Fridge. To enter the contest just follow these instructions:

* Download the new R40 app from the Apple App store
* Scroll through the App pages to the Camera Eye Section and snap your best "Rush Themed Photo"
* Save your Rush Themed Photo to your camera roll and then upload your photo to Instagram by October 31st and use the hashtag #RUSHPHOTOBOOTH

All valid entries will be entered into a draw to win one of the above prizes. The winners will be notified by Instagram direct message in early November. (See contest rules & regs).

I just entered by using their Geddy Lee photo filter - you can check out my photo here. Here's all that the new app offers according to the Apple App Store description:
