    CNN Releases Android App Made Specifically For Honeycomb Tablets

    If you remember, during Google’s Honeycomb showcase in the beginning of the month, one of the tablet-optimized apps demoed was made by CNN. Considering CNN is one of the Honeycomb/XOOM launch partners, the new app showed up in the Market like clockwork for an easily digestible price of free.





    The CNN app features a swipable navigation bar on the left-hand side and a grid story layout on the right side. For video junkies, live video broadcasts as well as pre-recorded video segments are provided. Vocal activists among you will find the ability to leave comments satisfying. Widget lovers will enjoy the ability to install a live widget onto their homescreens. The widget utilizes a new flipbook method of information presentation currently available exclusively in the Honeycomb version of the OS.
    CNN also highlighted a feature previously unavailable on a tablet device (read: iPad) – access to CNN’s iReport community-generated content, including uploading of video and pictures for iReporters.

    Not a bad first go at it, CNN. What do you think, tablet owners?

    This app looks really good. It will be one of my first downloads when I get my Xoom.

    This is one of the best News app out there. Although the ABC News app on the iPad is pretty fresh! I'm glad CNN didn't do us like they did iPhone users and charge us!

    Anybody having trouble playing video in the CNN app? I noticed that with 'ad free' installed the CNN app would barely work and never play video. Uninstalled ad free and now its perfect. Just a heads up.
