    There is no download for this app, just a webpage.

    I just looked, and it’s actually a pretty smart page. When I was on my desktop rather than a download link they actually provide an “email this to your Blackberry” link. But then I tried visiting the same page on my Blackberry and there was a download link.

    “The institution has a good reputation for being independent and non-partisan”

    Is that a joke? If you want to stump, please place all your cards on the table. The Brookings Institution is well known for being a far, FAR left “think tank” on nearly every issue. When the Washington Post, New York Times and Newsweek call you liberal, I think calling you liberal is a massive understatement. Calling them non-partisan is ignorant at best, and more likely completely disingenuous. Please BlackBerry Cool, if you want to push a far left organization’s app, at least have the guts to admit their bias! I expected more from you guys, sad.
