Selected as one of only two applications featured for the global debut of its next generation iPhone, Apple chose CNN’s app to showcase the device’s features such as a larger four-inch screen, higher resolution and improved viewing experience, among other enhancements.
The new CNN app will be available when Apple’s iPhone 5 hits the U.S. market on September 21, 2012.
CNN announced that the CNN App for Android is now available globally for free on the Kindle Fire. The CNN App combines intuitive navigation with an immersive news experience, giving users direct access to CNN’s global resources so that Kindle Fire users can access CNN wherever they are.
The CNN App, sponsored by Lexus, showcases U.S. and international news of the day through text and photos as well as live and on-demand video. Kindle Fire users can download the CNN App here or go to www.cnn.com/mobile for more information.
