Winnipeg Free Press - ONLINE EDITION
Royally engaged? There’s an app for that
Prince William and his bride, Kate, may not be stopping in to Manitoba on their Canadian tour but you can follow their journey online and on your iphone and other mobile devices
The tour is online.
The links are for the free apps for Iphone and Blackberry etc.
The app includes their itinerary, photos, Twitter updates on the tour as it unfolds, and other things such as making and sending your own postcards. The app was released and is updated by the federal government so don’t expect Wills and Kate to be tweeting and posting their private photographs. But if you want to keep up with the couple as they visit seven provinces between June 30 and July 8, it’s a pretty good way to do it.

About Mia Rabson
Mia Rabson is a born and bred Winnipegger whose interest in politics seemed clear when she dressed up as Prime Minister Brian Mulroney for Halloween in the 7th grade.
Her interest in writing was no surprise to her parents, who learned early in Mia’s life that no piece of blank paper — or wall, for that matter — was safe in her hands.
She holds an honours BA in English from Queen’s University, a master’s degree in journalism from the University of Western Ontario, and has completed a political journalism fellowship in Washington, D.C. with the Washington Centre for Politics and Journalism.
Prior to working for the Winnipeg Free Press, Mia briefly worked for the Detroit News in the paper’s Washington bureau.
Mia joined the Free Press team in February 2001, and in April 2001 was appointed to the Manitoba legislature bureau. In December 2004, she was appointed bureau chief at the legislature. She became the newspaper’s parliamentary bureau chief/national reporter in Ottawa in January 2008.
In 2008 she was nominated for a Michener Award with a team of reporters from the Free Press for its coverage of the province’s child welfare system.
She counts reliving the invasion at Dieppe, France, with veterans of the failed Second World War expedition and overcoming her fear of heights to touch the Golden Boy statue atop the Legislative Building among her favourite experiences as a reporter.
