Back in February of this year we announced that CNN had just released a news app that was designed exclusively for Android 3.0 Honeycomb-based tablet PCs. Now we have even more good news, as CNN has also launched its news app for Android-based smartphones.

As Kelly over at intomobile.com recently reported, the CNN News app enables Android users to access the vast amount of news that’s generated by CNN every day, right from their smartphone. The app includes breaking news stories, live video feeds, photos and even on-demand video.

The application also allows users to browse through content that is generated from CNN’s crowd-sourced news outlet feature, iReport. Users will even be able to share important and compelling stories with their friends via popular social networks such as Twitter or Facebook.

CNN’s News app is available for all Android-based smartphones that are running Android 2.1 OS or above, and includes both a US and international version. The application will even enable users to toggle between the two different versions if they want to.

The app also features a Radio section that is completely devoted to audio content. This section of the application provides hourly news updates, audio of CNN television interviews, original reports from the CNN Radio correspondents and podcasts about tech, food, entertainment and politics.
