RIM today let me know they’ve updated the free and official BlackBerry News App for PlayBook to version 220.127.116.11 with a handful of new features. The BlackBerry News app for smartphones was also updated but they didn’t mention this update, version 18.104.22.168, and I couldn’t find a changelog for it since nothing seems to be different from version 22.214.171.124 which added support for BlackBerry 7. Version 126.96.36.199 of the News App for PlayBook includes the following changes:
- Portrait mode support for all screens
- “Read” articles are marked as such
- “New” content indicator on home screen
- Ability to update channels through data tethering
- Ability to switch channels in magazine view
- In the article view, ability to go to previous/next article
- View a feed immediately after subscribing to it
