The Onion Launches iPad App

One of FishbowlNY’s favorites – The Onion – has launched its first iPad app. Available for free, the app includes content from the website, as well as video from its shows.

As Baratunde Thurston, Director of Digital for The Onion, notes, everything else in your world is now obsolete.

“Whatever other news applications you’ve installed up to this point can be deleted now. Also, please try to avoid touching our news in inappropriate places. There are good touches and bad touches.”

If you’ve got an iPad, this is definitely worth downloading. All we ask is that you keep your touching habits to yourself.
