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

    Probably one of my most used apps! Thank you Barnes and Noble! When it works it makes up for everything! The benefits outweigh the disadvantages!!!

    Awesome app... easy to stay up to date with current events and news. Easy to navigate by section. Well written, unbiased reports with visual aid. Although there isn't a CNN live option, it works much better than the other news apps and can bring me current events efficiently. My only complaint... every once in a while, I just get this black screen. It installed fine, though. Overall, amazing app! Probably one of my most used :) It has its faults... but I've built apps too, and I can assure you that none are perfect.

    International reader

    Being out of the U.S. but still being able to grab the headlines quickly is really helpful being abroad.

    Nooks are a great buy - but!

    My wife and I love our color Nooks, and have purchased many books. However, we were disappointed after making a special trip to both Best Buy and a B&N and other stores in Winston Salem NC, we could not find a replacement charger for one of our Nooks. Decided to shop on line and got one quickly on order, but during the process noted many people complaining about the Nook charger poor quality situation. Sure hope this issue is being addressed to avoid further negative impact on this great product.

    Recommend it for a quick look at events.

    Has the breadth of topics as the cable chanel but in brief. If you've missed a segment on cable you likely will find it here.

    All the news

    All the news you need to keep informed, but do not like the looks of the update. Rather ugly, the previous version much more attractive. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    Keeps me informed

    This a good App to keep me informed of what's going on in the world. I find that the news lacks more pertinent events at times. This may be a CNN issue not an App issue!

    Love this app for news

    I am very pleased with this app. Being hard of hearing and having the closed captioning for the live TV is fantastic. You can also just read the stories if you want. Well done CNN.
