I really like the AP News and New York Times apps and now am going to give the CNN Mobile app a whirl. But unlike most other news apps, ya gotta pay $1.99 for this one. The Associated Press has an interesting article about this novel step by CNN. And the odd thing is, even though this is a paid app, it still has some advertising. Some of the reviews on iTunes trash it for this reason, but others say they're not obtrusive. It has some neat features, including in-app video and local news, weather, and traffic. Plus, the iReport feature lets you contribute to breaking stories, including video and photos directly from your phone.
