CBS News may have been first when it came to developing an app for the iPad that allows users to watch its news coverage on demand, but NBC, which boasts nearly twice the number of viewers for its nightly newscast, has now developed a similar app that anchor Brian Williams describes this way: “This app is the equivalent of our entire newsroom in an iPad. Everywhere we go, everything we do is right here … [giving] Nightly News complete, on-demand portability.” The app was greeted with mixed reaction on the iTunes blog. Several users complained about the low resolution of the video, but other users shared the opinion of one who remarked, “Great job! Finally I no longer have to use the CBS app.”
