Daily Show and Colbert Nation Now on iPad

By Kenna McHugh Comment

iPads are great for so many things. You can play games, watch movies or watch your favorite television shows. Now, you can watch “The Daily Show” and “Colbert Report” on you iPad. That’s right. All you need to do is download the app for each show from iTunes.

If you are fan of one or both shows, then you are in for a real treat. However, if you go to the iTunes store, you will discover some comments reporting the apps are not working properly. Alas!

For instance, a user commented about “The Daily Show” app, “Why can you not watch extended interviews on the iPad app? Your website says to download the iPad app to get more archive video. The iPad app only gives you a fraction more. An improvement would be to [be] able to watch any video on your full site on the iPad app.“

Regarding the “Colbert Report,” a user commented, “I bought it because reviews said it had been ‘fixed.’ It definitely has not been fixed. The ‘spread to zoom’ doesn’t work, it loads videos incredibly slow and then either doesn’t play the whole thing or crashes and quits 1-2 minutes into a video. Have not been able to watch a full clip yet.”

But never fear the kinks are being ironed out and fans with iPads will be happy and satisfied as ever getting their “The Daily Show” or “Colbert Report” fix anytime and anywhere. As a matter of fact, the last comment on the “Colbert Report” says the app is working.

Another cool feature, if you are really into the Apple thing, you don’t even need to download an app. All you have to do is point Safari toward thedailyshow.com or colbertnation.com and the technology does the rest for you.
