On this day, the 20th of April, Glitch Wizard is launching the first update since its 2.0 release, offering a slew of new glitches, features and bug fixes for its fans. The app, which normally costs $2.29 CDN ($1.99 US), is free to download for the day, and will be on sale for the rest of the week at $1.19 CDN ($.99 US).
Simply updating the app wasn’t enough – Glitch Wizard is also releasing a collaboration with Pineo, an audio/video glitch remix of the classic Backstreet Boys track, “I Want It That Way”. On top of that, they’ve partnered with GIFPop and Yoshirt to host a 7-day glitch competition, encouraging wizards to post glitches to Instagram with the #glitchwizard, #gifpop and #yoshirt hashtags attached. The winning spellcasters will receive either an animated GIFPop of their glitch, glitched-out apparel, or a glitched iPhone case. If you’ve been hesitating to don the Glitch Wizard robes – now is the time.
