    Yesterday did anyone else see the batch of TouchPad apps from Postmedia Network for their various Canadian newspapers? and pick one to install out of curiosity?

    if not, do a search for Postmedia and grab one like the Calgary Herald or Vancouver Sun - they have created a VERY nice app! I googled and found a tweet where someone commented that it took them 6 weeks using only web developers. I hope more companies see that opportunity and we get a ton more like this! or maybe Postmedia just needs to share with more media companies

    Cheers, Clarice

    I downloaded the Edmonton Journal....but why? Well, there's an IndyCar race there in a week for me to lurk about for & it's always more fun to read the local headlines. Good stuff! Hope to visit Edmonton in the next year or two! Cheers.

    I wish the star had an app.

    their regular website blows unless you go to the mobile version.

    also I hope that macleans releases an app for the touchpad

    I saw this and was expected to see an add infested crap fest and was blown away at how nice and smooth it runs. I'm glad it's free.

    nice it works now! For some reason all I could get yesterday was the top banner with weather and that's it. Well off to change my rating. Pretty nice app. Glad for some Canadian content in the catalog.
    Due to the cancellation of the penny, I no longer give 2 about anything. I may however, give a nickel
