CNN’s new application for smartphones has been making the rounds since December of last year when it hit the iTunes App Store and then recently this year when the Android App Market got a hold of it. Nokia’s Ovi Store, or should I say the Nokia app store, since the Ovi brand is on it’s way out, is the last one to get the CNN international news app.
The CNN App for Nokia is designed to provide users with one-click access to news and the company says it will be a dynamic news experience. It’ll also feature integrated sharing functionality. The CNN App includes user-generated content upload functionality through iReport, showcases important global news through text, video and photos; and also enables users to watch live breaking news video.
It's all about the latest news
CNN App for Nokia features include:
- Provides a direct gateway to CNN’s user-generated news community, iReport.
- Lets users browse user-generated content; register, sign-in to their account or sign on as a guest to instantly upload photos and videos.
- Users can also browse iReport’s latest “international assignments,” asking the community to weigh in on various news stories.
- Easy to navigate: Users can easily flick through news stories across categories including Top Stories, U.S., Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, Middle East, Business, Sport, Entertainment, Tech and Travel.
- Easy to consume: Each story features bulleted highlights above the full article, designed to satisfy mobile “snackers,” allowing them to easily scan through the latest stories.
