This is great. This will be an awesome app to extend my PlayBooks functionality at work. Also being a web developer, I'm very interested to see such a great app developed using webworks.8900 - 9800 - Playbook - Z10 - Passport

- What's that?
This app would be so fantastic for school, hope it's released before the new semester starts.
And I don't care what the price is, if it's as useful as it you say it will be then it will be worth the price, even $10 or more. I've always said, if you have to ask what the price is, then you can't afford it and/or shouldn't be buying it...
