blackberry BlackBerry App of the Week: Read the News on Your PlayBook



Slowly but surely the apps are starting to trickle in for the BlackBerry PlayBook . This week’s app is one of the first to be directed at the new BlackBerry tablet line, the PlayBook. BlackBerry News is a simple RSS feed aggregator with some preloaded feeds in major news categories, if you don’t feel like browsing around to find your own personalized content. The app also takes advantage of the touch screen on the PlayBook, which mostly means basic functions like menu selecting and swiping to turn pages. It’s not exactly going to light the world on fire, but if you’re planning on getting a PlayBook and want a simple, clean news app, BlackBerry News isn’t likely to disappoint. It’s available now for free from the BlackBerry App Store.
