CNN App for Windows 8 is news app that lets users keep up with the news around the world.
If you're looking for a simple to use news app, CNN App for Windows 8 is perfect. It presents news stories in an easily digestible manner, though it could do with some more font options. The interface is nicely laid out but its International section is somewhat hidden.
There is a good amount of content that you can access from the app and each part of the world has its own section. The CNN App for Windows 8 also includes video content but they're all short form clips.
What's missing from the CNN App for Windows 8 is more detailed information like weather and traffic reports. Sure, there are other apps that can do this but it'd be nice to have all this information within one app.
Overall, the CNN App for Windows 8 is a solid reader for news from CNN but don't expect anything more.
