Not watching tv and rarely surfing the web for news, I always feel out of the loop with world events. So last week I downloaded the CNN iPhone application to catch up while on the go. I thought to myself, “I hope I check this regularly. It’s too easy not to.”
The great thing is, I don’t have to remember. The app sends me an alert via text message when important news breaks so I know it’s time to click the app or turn on the tv.
The texts are efficient and not intrusive at all – it just sends the major headlines. This morning I found out about the Chilean earthquake at 5am, and just now I see that Hawaii is being evacuated because of a threat of a tsunami. Last week, I watched Tiger address the nation on their livestream with only a 30 second delay.
I hate to say “I am enjoying” the app because usually the news is not positive, but I am definitely more informed.
Although the app is not free, it’s worth the 199 pennies.Tweet this!
