1.0 out of 5 stars Buggy app, ridiculous permissions.
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...

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.

This review is from: CNN Breaking US & World News (App)
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

This review is from: CNN Breaking US & World News (App)
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Terrible NOT, November 29, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: CNN Breaking US & World News (App)
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Buggy, crashes Kindle regularly, December 17, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: CNN Breaking US & World News (App)
When I used my iPod Touch, the CNN app was my go-to app for news, so I was excited to discover it was out for my Fire. However, this app is so buggy I uninstalled it after just a few days. It launches less than 1 time out of 5 and has required complete shutdowns of the Kindle just to get the device working again. Back to getting my Kindle news from HuffPost. It may be skewed, but at least that app is solid.
