Conclusion:

This is a cool little news app and has the one up on the iPhone because this version includes video that you can watch.  The only bad thing about the videos is that they don’t always come in very clear.  Sometimes it is extremely pixelated and it makes you wonder what is even going on in the video.  Also, when it comes to navigation you will want to stick with just using the menu button because the window-shade pull down doesn’t really work that well and is more frustrating than helpful.

This app has been rated 4 out of 5 stars by Android app users and currently can be downloaded off of the Android app market for free.
