CNN has just launched an iPad app that allows users to browse stories, read breaking news, as well as share stories via Twitter or Facebook. The app has a couple different views built in so you can choose to either quickly view stories or view a complete, interactive slide show.

The CNN app also allows you to leave comments and engage with the rest of the CNN community. As live video is available, you'll also be able to stream that when breaking news occurs. If you find a story you'd like to save for later or show someone else, you can save stories for offline reading as well.

I personally use an RSS app to aggregate all my news feeds into one easy to read place. I really only ever jump into individual news apps when I want to view video or leave comments. It's nice that CNN is giving us that option though.

You can download the CNN for iPad app via iTunes now for free. Any of you really looking forward to trying this out?
