Best news app

I was CNN on tv for my news, and now I can get access to CNN articles and videos anytime of day on my Nook Tablet thanks to the app, you get domestic and international settings, plenty of videos and plenty of written articles. Easy format and navigation.

Needs update.

B&N only gave us the lame version. On my iPad, I have this app, and it lets me see CNN live. Overall this app is a 3/10. Decent. I just want a more up-to-date version of this app. THEN I would be satisfied.

    An excellent app from a trusted news leader.

    We felt the application was very informative as well as being more comprehensive and convenient than the CNN news program. You also have the ability to watch videos and live streams, which is a plus. It's nice that you're able to choose different news categories. It's definitely a well done application for free

    Awesome

    I love the CNN News app!! I am in the news section of my school newspaper and it was very hard to find articles to write about I started using this app and BAM!! I became editor and cheif for writing articles nobody thought of. When I told my fellow classmates about it they started using it and automatically LOVED NEWS. It was a miracle. THANK YOU BARNES AND NOBLE!!!!!!

    Just OK--

    Had this app on my iphone and it was my favorite news app UNTIL they updated it and then it ran really slow. So thought I would try it on my Nook HD reader. It does seem to run better on the Nook than the iphone so therefore gave it 3 stars.

    I just recently got this app for my nook, and I don't love it, but it is very helpful when I need some quick news for something I might have heard about and did not know the whole story.

    Sucks very disappointing

    It's great when it works and that's not very often. Up pops a box that says sorry -- Really just make it work!
