CNN app exclusively for Nokia

Published by at

The official application for CNN has arrived on Nokia Lumia devices. As promised at CES 2012, the app is exclusive to Nokia for an initial period before arriving on other Windows Phone 7 devices. Taking full advantage of the Metro UI, users can swipe between different primary sections of the app - Top Stories, Sections, and the iReport citizen journalism service where readers can submit stories about specific topics. Individual sections can be pinned as Live Tiles and the app can receive breaking stories and display via its main Live Tile.

From Nokia's CES Press Release:

The CNN App for Windows Phones will provide the latest news and video from CNN's reporting around the globe.   Offering a robust user experience, the CNN App takes full advantage of Windows Phone 7 features to offer a vivid, panoramic interface, the ability to pin sections of the app to a home screen, Live Tile for real-time news updates, and direct access to iReport, CNN's participatory news community.  For the first time on an app, users will have the ability to submit an iReport while simultaneously capturing the event.  Launching globally for free in the next month, the CNN App will be exclusive to Nokia users for 90 days and then available on all Windows Phone devices as they come to market.

 "The CNN App will offer Windows Phone users a customizable CNN experience shaped for their environment," said Louis Gump, vice president of CNN Mobile.  "The Windows platform and Nokia phones will enable millions of people to plug in using the CNN app and interact with the world - where, when and how they want."
