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.

1.0 out of 5 stars oh well December 26, 2012
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars CNN App is Non-Functioning December 3, 2012
Verified Purchase
I'm very disappointed in the CNN app on the Kindle Fire. I could never get the app to open fully - I would select it, the page would start to load, and each and every time, I received the message "CNN has stopped" and the app closed. I deleted it 3 times and re-downloaded it, but still the same saga. I have finally given up and deleted the app with no intention of downloading it again. Such a shame because CNN works great on my iPhone, and it is one of my favorite news sources.
