We love Polar Mobile but they’re almost too good at what they do. The company has already passed over 150 apps created for BlackBerry and they’re still on a roll. Be prepared to see a huge influx of news apps in App World as the company has announced that it’s launching more than 500 applications for Metroland that will run across a range of platforms, including the iPad and iPhone, BlackBerry and PlayBook, as well as Android and Windows Phone 7. The deal will bring Metroland’s 104 local community newspapers to the smartphone and tablet realm in app form. Metroland will also take advantage of Polar’s technology for publications such as Sports Illustrated, Vogue and MacLean’s.
