The Daily Show official app now available for Windows Phone 7

Whoa, where did this come from? Even though the Daily Show is openly pro-iPhone, looks like they are showing some Windows Phone 7 love as MTV Networks (Viacom) just released an official app for the show.

From the description:

"Get the Quote of the Day and video clip for the most recent episodes. Share them on Facebook and Twitter. Search the entire archive of videos by category or topic. Drag topics together to narrow results to an interesting combination."

That's the good news. The bad news is it costs $1.99 and there's no trial available. Oh Viacom, you greedy devil you. And you just know you won't be able to watch the whole episode. Torn between our love of Jon and dislike of corporate media giant.

Grab it now, right here.

  • Doesn't look like it's available in the Australian Marketplace (no price or buy option). I can see it there. ripped again ! :(
  • Hmm...have you tried Marketplace Enabler yet? May work for you:
  • Considering the massive loss of respect for Jon Stewart last week (although I still manage to have more for him than any other cable news) I'm interested to se him promoting this now after his half hour of free Apple publicity.
  • I can't believe there are people in this world that pay money for these apps that are basically just web browsers capable of visiting only one website. And then they throw in an RSS or twitter feed, if you are lucky. I have a bridge to sell, if anybody is interested.
  • Actually, it's not half bad. You do get access to years of video clips of full segments for watching which you can easily share. The schedule is nice too as is the ability to search by topic, people, events, etc. Not sure it's worth $1.99 but it's actually done very well and feels quite polished...
  • That's one pov but how many readers buy a newspaper or magazine for $1.99 or more and read it then throw it away?At least the application still keeps delivering value, guess I can't understand the idea that apps are expensive at $1.99, don't have a coffee this morning and you can buy an app.
