The Onion News App for Android

July 14th, 2010

Our favorite satirical news outlet now has an app for that. The Onion News Network
is a free app that plays the entire Onion News catalog. Search options include the latest videos, segments, editors picks, and archives. Video sharing options enable you to send that video you love to whoever you like via email or Facebook.

It’s a shame they don’t have the articles as well, but you can always go to the mobile site for those. The Onion News Network app is sponsored by HTC, so you’ll see a couple ads from them, but they’re pretty unobtrusive.
