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.

    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.

    Love it but...

    I love this app for my nook hd but I really hate the black background with white font! It really kills my eyes! It is a very wonderful app other than that.

    Not for me, though the app works well

    I needed an app that provides mainly headlined articles rather than a full range of articles for all subjects. Much too cluttered for me

    Recommended

    This app does what it says it will do, but other news apps are better at making it easier to review the news and to link to the full story.

    Good content; laggy performance & occasional crashes

    Good news content. The app crashed (Nook Tablet) every time it asked me to rate it. I still recommend this app and hope for a smoother performing update

    Recommended for liberal views!

    I feel CNN is too liberal in most of its articles. I compare it all the time to Fox.
