Hello Taptu fans:
Do you own a Playbook? We’re happy to let you know today that we’ve taken our popular Android / IOS app and ported it to RIM’s Playbook tablet. You can do all the same things that has made Taptu a 4.5 star app on the Android Market and a 4.5 star app on the App Store.
You can find the news sources you love by searching for RSS feeds or import them from Google Reader.
You can discover new sources through our mixed topic streams that pull in articles from a variety of news outlets and blogs. These topic streams can be found in the StreamStore, or by searching, and cover everything from food and fashion, to finance and business news, and everything in between.
Of course, you can DJ your news, a favorite feature with many of our current users. If you have five different sports streams you follow, you can merge or “DJ” these into one stream to create your own personalized sports stream. Moreover, you can color code it and name it to tailor it further.
You can also interact with your social media. You can Tweet, RT, Quote a Tweet from your Twitter stream as well as replying to someone you follow, quoting their tweets and adding your comments or retweeting directly from Taptu.
On Facebook, you can update your status, Like and Comment from your Facebook stream. If you see something a friend has sent that you want to Like or Comment on, you can do it right inside the app.
Our Playbook app is available now in BlackBerry App World. If you have a Playbook, we hope you’ll give it a try and let us know how you find it. You can download it here.
