Review: CNN App for iPad

CNN's News App for iPad is a great version of the CNN's daily news

View on the App Store: CNN App for iPad - CNN Interactive Group, Inc.

Features of CNN App for iPad:

  • As current as it gets.
  • Slightly biased reporting - be aware.
  • Share and comment on stories.
  • Straight from the USA.
  • Save articles for later reading.

The CNN News App for iPad has a unique layout and display system that is easy to use and becomes very intuitive after only a few minutes.  It's easy to comment on a news article (account required), add to your Profile's favourite news stories, or share via eMail, iMessages, Twitter, Facebook or even Copy for pasting into another App.  

The news is full-on American so it may take a bit of a challenge to read through the americanisms, and it's REALLY easy to see what the Yanks are being 'fed' by the news media.  The overall impression is that the App focuses on war stories, political opinions and entertainment, with a bit of religion mixed in, but there are categories like "CNN Heroes" which focus on amazing people doing great things.  

You can sort the news by categories such as: U.S. Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, Middle East, CNN Heroes, Business, Sport, Entertainment, Politics, Living & Travel and Health (amongst others). Being able to read JUST the categories you are interested in is a great feature of this news App.

It's a great App for all-round US-based news. Excellent for US expats and anyone wanting to know what's happening from the viewpoint of the USA.

This iPad App is recommended by: iPad Dad - Google Plus
