The Daily Show launches new app (but no full shows)

The Daily Show has rolled out a new iPhone, iPad and Android app called “Daily Show Headlines” with lots of video, social sharing features, “personalized tune-in reminders” and backgrounder on episodes and the show itself. For iOS users with Apple TVs, it uses AirPlay to let you watch clips on the big screen. But as the name might suggest, the app doesn’t feature full episodes. For that, you’ll have to shell out some cash on iTunes.

The new app replaces the old iOS app, and it’s the first Daily Show app for Android devices. “We want to provide new and current fans with an app that delivers an easy, entertaining and highly shareable experience with ‘The Daily Show,’” said Ben Hurst, VP, Mobile & Emerging Platforms, Viacom Entertainment Group.

While it adds the social sharing features, it still lacks any second-screen or community component, which would be a natural fit for the very-social Daily Show. And no, it’s not Instagram.
