CNN launches free app for Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablets

CNN has launched an application specifically optimized for use on tablets running Android 3.0 Honeycomb yesterday. The app is one of the first to be optimized for the newest version of Android and not be developed directly by Google. CNN no doubt wants to quickly take advantage of the hype surrounding the newest Android-based tablets such as the just-released Motorola Xoom. The app's...

News Corp's The Daily expected on Android tablets later this year

Whether you believe that The Daily is made of pure awesomesauce, or is simply a digital artefact of evil, the fact remains that its iPad-exclusivity could make some folks a bit envious. Android users needn't feel left out for long, though, because it looks like the trendy news app is set to make its way onto those shiny new Honeycomb tablets sometime later this year. At least, that's what...

IMDb Android app update brings major redesign, trailers, global showtimes, and more

The official IMDb app for Android just got a big update, and it does not disappoint. Along with a complete design-overhaul, the app has been stuffed full of IMDb goodness to the point that it's now more enjoyable to use than the actual website itself. The redesign is very sleek. They've basically taken the original palette and layout, expanded it all, and turned up the sexy. As nice as it...

Google One Pass lets content publishers offer simple subscription payments

Google, in a move that shatters any lingering questions about whether it has been building a digital newsstand for Android, has just announced One Pass. The new system aims to give publishers a simple way to let consumers pay for content and then access it across a number of different platforms, with Google Checkout providing the payment backend. We strongly suspect those might include native...

Digg bans RSS feed submissions to decrease spam

Digg's unpopular version 4 redesign last summer has put a big damper on the site's traffic, but the Digg team has come around and started to make changes that are helping to bring users back. The latest smart move: banning RSS feed submissions. No longer can every single post from a site be auto-submitted to Digg via RSS. According to Mashable, Digg's product manager, Mike Cieri, just informed...

Yahoo! announces Livestand news app for iPad and Android tablets

Yahoo! has just announced Livestand, an app for iPad and Android tablets that puts the company squarely in the middle of the current trend toward multimedia-centered digital news. Livestand's pitch is personalization and local news, but Yahoo!'s focus at this stage is on roping in publishers and advertisers. Yahoo! wants publishers to use Livestand as a platform to distribute their content across...

The Daily performance update requires deleting existing app

The Daily, News Corporation's iPad-only newspaper app, has received a maintenance update taking it to version 1.0.1. This update brings performance improvements, better stability, an improved introduction experience, updated Twitter login and posting, a change in image text concatenation, and a giant caveat. If you are already a reader of The Daily and just update your existing version to...

Read The Daily iPad-exclusive digital newspaper online for free

Depending which posts you read about The Daily -- News Corp's new iPad-exclusive digital "newspaper" -- it's either the most amazing thing to happen to print media in a long time, or just another ho-hum e-publication. Either way, there's good content to read -- and you can now do that for free, whether you own an iPad or not. Waxy.org's Andy Baio built The Daily Indexed, a Tumblr blog that...

The Daily, Rupert Murdoch's iPad newspaper, becomes Apple's first subscription app

After much fanfare and some delays, Rupert Murdoch and News Corp. have launched The Daily, the first "iPad newspaper." The Daily is the first app to take advantage of a new subscription model in Apple's App Store, with each edition automatically pushed to subscribers as soon as it comes out. The low weekly 99 cents price should convince many skeptics to give The Daily a trial run, but what will...

138,000 Holocaust-related photos now online, powered by Google and Picasa

Yad Vashem, Israel's official memorial to Holocaust victims, in partnership with Google, has just created what can only be described as the definitive online Holocaust archive. The collection consists of 138,327 images, most of which are photos. The collection, which represents a few years of full-time work by a handful of Googlers, has been made available just in time for the UN...

Apple's iPad subscription service and News Corp's Daily news app delayed

Rupert Murdoch and News Corp. planned to launch The Daily, an appropriately-named daily news subscription service for Apple's iPad, next week. Now the launch has been delayed "for weeks" because of a hold-up on Apple's end. The Wall Street Journal's All Things Digital (also owned by News Corp., coincidentally) says the app is ready, but a "push" subscription feature Apple has been building is...

TitleQ for Firefox lets you easily move between blog and news headlines with your keyboard

Don't you just hate scrolling through blogs and news websites with front pages that go on for ever? Sure, scrolling with the mouse wheel, arrow keys, or Page Up and Down works, but it always feels a bit clunky. Sometimes you scroll a bit too far, or not far enough. The worst bit, though, is that annoying microsecond where your eyes have to hunt for the right block of text to read; you hit the...

Google may be working on a digital newsstand for Android devices

Unlike Apple, Google still hasn't come through with its own digital content services for the Android platform. We've known for some time that a Google music service is being worked on, and now the Wall Street Journal reports that Google is also working on a "digital newsstand" for its mobile OS. Major publishers like Time Inc., Conde Nast, and Hearst Corporation have been approached, though...
