There are two reasons why people watch the Super Bowl: the football and the commercials. For this year's Super Bowl XLVI, advertisers paid an average of $3.5 million for a 30-second spot during the game. If you missed any of those commercials or just want to check them out again, you can now find many of them online if you know where to look, or you can use your webOS smartphone or TouchPad.
Super Ads by Aclass Apps has been in the App Catalog for webOS smartphones for a while now and lets you browse the commercials from the last few Super Bowls (although the latest Super Bowl has yet to be added), but it now has a big brother with Super Ads XL for the TouchPad. Completely rewritten in Enyo for the tablet, Super Ads XL is $1.49 and features all the commercials from the last 4 Super Bowls in one easy-to-manage place. You simply tap on the Super Bowl you want to view, find the commercial you want, and play it, all within the app. You can also "favorite" commercials for quick-access later by tapping on the big star next to the commercial
Super Ads XL is missing a few features that were present in its Mojo phone-bound predecessor, such as sharing (email, SMS, Facebook, etc) and search, but we have been told that those updates are on the way. In addition, the developer has plans to add a Villo chat room and is taking the app cross-platform through the magic of open source Enyo. In fact, it's already in the Chrome App Store and has been approved for the Blackberry Playbook.
