WOW!!! They're reading my mind before it's even had a thought. Isn't that some sort of social offense, like 'accessory to insanity before the fact'? NMP

Since videos are the number one entertainment for me in this I can only give it 2 stars since videos hadn't worked in years.

The UI isn't pleasant to the eye and the ad is large and rendered in a higher contrast than the content. Boo. Navigation is sub-par.

Great. Needs to update stories a bit, many also have to link to the main site for layout reasons, but well made app and hilarious.

The content comes through well, and the format seems nice; the writing is great as always. There seems to be an issue, though, where the story shows up in the homescreen list, but when selected shows only a random stock photo and no text. This is, uh, you know, an issue.

Love the Onion!! The only thing losing it a star is that sometimes clicking the article title brings up a picture and no article. :( looking forward to that update!!
