    Default Leo Laporte/TWIT

    I just have my PlayBook about a week and I have been going through the apps slowly but surely (seems to me we just got a new crop of apps?) and was thrilled tonight to find 2 that work with Leo Laporte's TWIT network. They both work great. Very recommended!

    Sorry should have said I found them in App World under Apps - Photo and Video - Video & TV.

    There is an app for the TWIT podcasts (both video and audio) and for TWIT Live where you can watch the live feed directly. I downloaded both and they work very well.

    ya it needs to be updated but the dev has giving up on it i think..ive sent him messages but he never replies ...

    i have to open and close the app at least 3-6 times to get it to connect ..i kno its not my internet cuz im sitting right next to my router lol

    someone needs to make a new one... PLEASE

    maybe one like the ipad version it has the irc chat + live stream...

    i even sent twitter messages to a few ppl at twit such as leo..colin..omgchad etc..and only colin replied and said use the one in app world..i told him its not working right..and he didnt reply.. so if you like twit email.. twitter them and let them know they have fans on playbook..

    Hope the developer updates it. It is the ONLY reason I have the Playbook. I have an iPad that I used for everything else, but I like the size and solidity of the Playbook to watch their shows around the house. Fingers crossed.

    I'm pretty sure there is a video in there from the developer stating that the will no longer be supporting it after March 31st because they have been bought out. The new podcast app seems to work ok as long as you use the RSS feed from the TWIT website. I just emailed myself all the RSS feeds for the shows I wanted to subscribe to and then copied and pasted them into the podcast client.

    Support for the "TWiT" app from Mediafly is being discontinued (I have already deleted it). I also found it unstable as it kept crashing. The "TWiT Live" app is from a different developer and not affected (I don't think) and I also use it on my desktop. You can also watch live with the native PlayBook browser as well as SimpleBrowser+. Both work very nicely.

    From another old guy ;-)

    Open Podcast app, Categories,Technology and search for Leo Laporte. Choose your show and subscribe. Downloading seems to only work when the app is open (haven't tried changing Application behavior in the General settings - think I will change from Default to Showcase and see what it does).

    The Android apps are worst than our Twit Live even if it is not updated. Look until something is done, by relaunching 3-4 times it ends up connecting, so I'll stick with it

    Let me just mention that the TWIT app now works wonderfully with the new 2.1 dev beta!

    Sorry to say it's probably you. In playbook OS 1.x the TwiT Live app was very buggy and hardly worked. Since 2.0 the app works great. I use it all the time.
