The Onion Releases Fake News App DMR » Uncategorized Craig Smith Last updated: April 12th, 2019 In what surely was no coincidence, The Onion, the very popular news parody site, released their official iPhone/iPad app on April Fools Day. The new app allows you to read the fake news reports and videos that you have come to know and love without leaving the app. There is also some handy share features that allow you to pass on your favorite stories via Facebook, Twitter, email, etc. The iOS app is a free download on iTunes. It is unclear if The Onion will be releasing a similar app for Android or Blackberry in the future.
