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.

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.

I use CNN app 1-2 times a day. During Hurricane Sandy, I was on it all day and it supplemented my viewing of CNN NEWS on tv.

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.

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.

This app never worked right. slow. Constantly freezes. Now that I have deleted it I can't get the icon off my "apps" screen. Maybe it works better on something besides a Kindle Fire.

UPDATE!!

So I deleted this app and re-installed after seeing all the other good reviews and I have to say it works great now. Go figure.

This app never loads correctly and hangs up my Kindle. Easier to just go to the actual website. I do not recommend
