Onion debuted their official iPad application "The Onion," America's Finest News Source on April Fool's Day.

It's the last bastion of unbiased, reliable, and definitive news in a world dominated by superficiality, mediocrity, and non-Onion news outlets. Now, using the latest news-providing technologies, The Onion introduces a format that allows you to touch the news. That's right. Swipe it, poke it, berate it, and it reacts accordingly.

The app relies heavily on HTML5, and it should be popular. The Onion's other mobile apps on the iPhone and Android have been downloaded more than one million times.

From the press release:

Now, using the latest news-providing technologies, The Onion introduces a format that allows you to touch the news. That's right. Swipe it, poke it, berate it, and it reacts accordingly.

. . . "Whatever other news applications you've installed up to this point can be deleted now," said Director of Digital Baratunde Thurston. "Also, please try to avoid touching our news in inappropriate places. There are good touches and bad touches."
