Learning Android App

I discovered a neat app for my Android devices in the Natonal Film Board of Canada App which you can find here:

Culture is maintained by the people and isn't the responsibility of the government, however here in Canada, culture was certainly supported in the 1970s and 80s by organizations like the CBC and the National Film Board of Canada.  I think the work that the NFB did is something that should be supported and not simply left to rot in the audio/visual departments of libraries across Canada.
This app allows today's viewers to watch films and vignettes that people like myself grew up watching on public television.  I really recommend this app for Android users.
