CNN launches iPhone app with video, iReport integration

updated 03:50 pm EDT, Tue September 29, 2009

App enables sharing via Twitter, SMS, Facebook

CNN has launched an iPhone app that provides access to a variety of content such as news stories, videos and iReport. Users can view several different categories including breaking news, top stories and entertainment news, with local features for weather, news and traffic. Each of the items is available as a summary or full article.

Along with the pre-recorded videos, users can also watch live feeds from the news service. Streams are automatically optimized for the available connection, while videos can be saved for offline viewing.

Users can contributed to CNN's iReport site directly from the iPhone or iPod touch interface. The story submissions can also include video or photos captured by an iPhone. Social networking integration allows stories to be shared through Twitter, Facebook or SMS messages.

CNN's iPhone app is available from iTunes for $2.

    The packaging and functionality of this application looks very nice. Unfortunately, the content is still CNN - utter c***. If only it was CNNi at least. Can't wait to be able to not buy the Fox and MSNBC "news" apps as well.
