    I'm having the same problem, too. Only pictures on top load. Seems like its no longer finding the links to the stories to download. Hope this is not the end of this great app working on webOS!

    USA Today did a massive update to their web site (top to bottom) last week some time (announced). I believe that this results in our being unable to access their app correctly. I did look at their new web site via TP browser and it actually looks pretty good. I also thought their App was great on the TP but wouldn't be surprised if it's gone the way of Skynews and several others.

    I am having the same problems. I have no inside or technical knowledge of the issue, but I wouldn't be surprised if what you say is correct. I would bet that it has to do with their website rewrite. I hope HP "remembers" the Touchpad and gets it working again.

    My USA today app no longer updates the news stories, just the photos weather and sports scores. Is this universal, or just somrthing to do with me?

    yep, I blogged about it on my site yesterday...got the same response from USA Today. On the other hand, they have removed webOS from their new "mobile apps" page. So, getting mixed messages....

    Looks like there is some hope for an update. I sent an email to the above address as well hoping to help nudge them in the right direction. Hope others do the same, I would hate to loose another app when we have so few.

    I sent them an email and received a stock reply to try uninstalling and reinstalling. For goofs I did that to no avail. So we'll just have to wait and see. We're pretty used to that.

    The USA Today App was updated last night. Please take the time to thank them on their email link in the App for doing this as the App is free.
