CNN launches free App for Android

CNN has launched an app for the Android platform which will provide users with news and direct access to CNN’s global resources which will include live field reports, user-generated content and a variety of enterprise interviews and podcasts. The app is free of cost and will be available for Android v2.1 and higher smart phones. It also has a nice Radio section which includes hourly news updates, original reports from CNN Radio correspondents, audio of interviews from CNN television, and podcast series about politics, entertainment, tech and food. Users can personalize their news experience by tracking local news and weather based on location and save them so that they can view it later even in offline mode. Text stories and images can also be shared directly from the app via email, Facebook and Twitter.
