    My Storm died a few days ago and upon receiving my new replacement one, I discovered that AP Mobile News had disappeared from the free downloadable landscape in Canada!

    I was extremely disappointed as this was my FAVORITE app!

    Alas, I hear that they've now made it a paid app. So in response, I thought I'd start a thread on where people are moving to INSTEAD of AP MOBILE NEWS to get their news.

    Maybe the folks at AP News will reconsider and relaunch a free AP Mobile News with ads and a paid one without any ads.

    In any case, I'm trying out Pocket Express for my free news.

    What are you using to look for news now?

    New York Times and Viigo right now - too bad there isn't another app that actually pre-loads the news fully onto your BBerry - it's a hassle for the subway.

    ...oh, or an app that has some CANADIAN news would be nice too...

    Well then you'd look on google for push news services for Canada, then.

    WSJ reader is made for the Storm, functions great... one of my most used Apps. You can use it as a RSS reader too, just put in your own feeds.

    This is an actual App, not just an internet shortcut like most of the news 'apps'.

    I think the thing that I liked about the AP News app was that it was an actual application - anyone know of an actual app where there is readable news like it?

    Viigo is ok, but you still have to download the "full story" - something you didn't have to do with AP News.
