Product Description

CNN connects you to the world -- wherever you are.

The redesigned CNN App for Android has been rebuilt and redesigned for use on both your phone and tablet.

Stay informed with the latest headlines and original stories from around the globe. Follow up-to-the-minute reporting with breaking news alerts and live video. Share stories and videos and comment on top stories.

The CNN App may ask your permission to access certain functions on your device such as location, network connection, camera and social media accounts. Doing so can enhance some features of your app such as weather forecasts, iReport submissions and ability to share stories with your social networks. The CNN App may also ask your permission for “phone calls” to allow you to call CNN regarding story ideas or general feedback. CNN respects your privacy and would never misuse your personal information.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works well on my Fire November 4, 2012

I don't really like the main CNN website, this app does a much better job in presenting their content. Easy to navigate and it works.

1.0 out of 5 stars Buggy app, ridiculous permissions. April 17, 2013
Verified Purchase
The app was crummy and buggy to start and when I happened to go back and see the permissions I was surprised and confused to see the following permissions:

-Required to be able to access the camera device
-Initiate a phone call without going through the Dialer user interface for the user to confirm the call being placed
-Access the list of accounts in the Accounts Service

I don't see how CNN could possibly need these permissions to offer us a NEWS app. I immediately removed the app after that. There are other, better, news apps out there with far less suspicious permissions.

By PJ

I read other reviews and was hoping for the best.Worked the first time. After that,each time I opened it,all it said was "Initializing application" then nothing. True it is free so no big deal. Give it a try if you want to.I have the Kindle Fire HD.

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't work at all December 21, 2012
Verified Purchase
Most of the time, it just sit there "Initailzing application..." for ever - thus, the app is useless for me because I can't see it and it doesn't do anything. I hope that you can fix it so it works.
