    Wish there was. New York Times recently started charging, and the AP app is just downright terrible. Looks like we are stuck with the written word.

    I just tried out a video on the app, it actually looked pretty darn good for streaming over 3g. Much better than any other news app.

    I use Pulse reader app. Free in the market. It's great b/c you can customize from tons of news sources, including New York Times. Videos play ok within the app, not perfect and larger videos take a bit to load but generally works ok. And if I click through headline to the original article, I see no lag with videos at all.

    pulse reader gets my vote too...its a glorified RSS news reader that does everything you would do in a web browser
