  • This free app is a nice video player with access to NFB Films. There are plenty of videos to choose from in the app, and playback is smooth on the PlayBook screen.

  • This simple app approximates rain falling on a window, and is a simple diversion for the PlayBook. It is an Android app, and a good demonstration to show how good the ports to the PlayBook can be. It's actually pretty soothing to let it rain for a bit.

    Looks pretty slick to me. I don't really need an ecosystem for music or videos, just some apps. I really like real multitasking without glitches. In many ways, this looks like WebOS.
