    Great news app that just got better.
    I like hanging around dealerships, telling satisfied customers they bought the wrong car.

    I updated to News 1.1 and now it is not getting any feeds. They show up and it says it is updating, but it doesn't show any articles and if I click on one I just get "This feed currently contains no articles..." I tried uninstalling/re-installing, rebooting, still not working.

    I agree, this is a welcome upgrade. One question...

    The Blackberry News 1.1 Release Notes on the Technical Support Center states, "You can now browse BlackBerry® News content through BlackBerry® Bridge." What does this really mean? Starting News with Bridge active, but no Wi-Fi results in same "no connection, you can only browse previoulsy downloaded content" message as before. Tapping links in content tries to start regular browser (again, with no Wi-Fi or tethering, fails). Any ideas?

    I might be able to convince him to post up the latest release, I know he's pretty busy but I'm sure I can talk him into it.

    I'll take the opportunity to plug my own thread here: Simple, simple way to install bar file applications on your Playbook without AppWorld

    louis.keeper has also put together a nice GUI around the process, you can take a look at his thread here: http://forums.crackberry.com/forum-f...indows-619796/

    Both good ways to load bar files onto your PB, and as a bonus, once you've figured it out you're free to go load any other bar files you find out in the wild. Good way to get your Angry Birds fix for now.

    For us BB / Playbook owners who live outside the U.S. and who can not access country-restricted apps such as Blackberry News, the easiest method is to use a free proxy service to trick AppWorld on your PB into thinking you are in the U.S.
