The Philadelphia Inquirer's iPad appliacation ranks among the top 10 new publishers' apps for 2011, according to the iMonitor rating service, Ad Age reports here. The Inquirer ranked with Bloomberg Business Week and the San Francisco Chronicle, among others in the Top 10 new-apps group.  
Says AdAge: "iMonitor gauges quality by rating how well apps work, whether they crash, how long they take to download, whether they include video or audio, navigability, interactivity, social-media capabilities and other factors. It reported in October that quality has a higher correlation with magazine and newspaper app revenue than a variety of variables including price and audience demographics."
