blaq for the playbook

One of the best things about a tablet is simply reading. The form factor is perfect for reading eBooks, keeping up with the news or scrolling through a Twitter timeline. One of our favorite Twitter clients for the PlayBook is Blaq and the app has recently been updated with a host of features and fixes. One of the best features is being able to manage multiple accounts. The app costs $1.99 but the update is free.
