Since The Drudge Report uncovered Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky in the late 1990s, the website has remained quite popular. It provides quick links for news on politics, entertainment, and current events. Now, the universal Official Drudge Report app for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad has been updated with mixed results. When released earlier this year, the app was little more than a web browser. From the Drudge Report home page, users clicked on links as they would using another mobile browser such as Safari. All that has changed with version 2.0. Created by CodingByMoonLight, the updated Drudge app includes many nice features. But overall, I found it to be a huge disappointment. The Official Drudge Report app now includes integration with social networking sites and the ability to share articles on your personal blogs. You can do this if you have a Blogger, TypePad or WordPress-powered site. Official Drudge Report app is worth checking out, if only because it is free. It definitely gives mobile users a different way to surf the web. Still, most of its new features make the app pretty bad. So much so, that its creators would be wise to rethink the entire concept.
