CNN App for iPad Updated: Adds Some James Earl Jones

The CNN App for iPad was updated yesterday, to Version 1.8.2. Actually a better reference for the update would be The James Earl Jones Update – since this is the only notable change:

The CNN Mobile app now features the iconic James Earl Jones ‘This is CNN’ welcome greeting. This feature is optional and may be switched on or off at any time through the CNN app profile page

I’m trying hard to think of a single update feature that beats this one for pure cool factor, but so far I’ve got nothing. You get the James Earl Jones soundbite each time you open the app, and I have to admit I’ve quit the app from the multitasking bar and re-opened it several times after updating – just to enjoy it a bit more.

Here’s an App Store link for the James Earl Jones CNN App for iPad; it’s a free app.
