The Onion Ready to Bloom on the iPhone

Sat, Apr 3, 2010

iPhone, Mobile

I’m always up for some humor on the go and I’m betting you are too. Luckily for us, the fine folks from The Onion realize this as well because they now have an app for the iPhone that lets you smell their comedic stench anywhere.

All of The Onion’s current content will appear on the app which includes the news, sports, American Voices, Statshots, Infographics and much more. Along with having live content, the app also allows you to save 25 pieces of content for offline use and allows you to share that especially funny article on services such as Twitter and Facebook as well as email.

The announcement from The Onion reads:

No longer must you rely on lesser news items cobbled together from various inferior non-Onion sources; feel free to delete all such apps now, as The Onion’s app will doubtless fulfill all your news-aggregation and infotainment needs.

Given the current less-than-optimal economic climate, in which one must pinch every single penny not already spent on a sleek Apple device, we have made the difficult decision to offer our app for free. To do so, we have partnered with another bold and irreverent brand, Jack Link’s Beef Jerky, whose noble offer must be celebrated here for what it is: a selfless act of financial sacrifice committed to ensure that the integrity of journalism as we know it does not perish from the Earth.

Well, that sounds like good news for the both of us so if I were you I’d get right on downloading to get my Onion on right now.
