Thank you for downloading the new version of the CNN App for iPad.

Many of the enhancements in this app are based on user feedback, so thank you for your comments. At the end of this article, you can give your opinion by voting in polls. You can also e-mail us your comments at iphone@cnn.com or tweeting a comment to @CNNMobile. 

Here's a quick look at what you can do with some of the new standout features:

  • Watch & read articles with video

    Many articles have videos at the top of them. In the past, you had to choose if
    you wanted to see the video or read the article.
     With our new watch-and-read
    feature, you can look at a video and read an article at the same time.
    perfect for multitaskers.

    Just tap on a video and then scroll down the page to read the article. As you
    scroll down, the video player will get smaller, but the video will keep
    Scroll back up to the top of the article to enlarge the video player again. 

  • Watch and read on the CNN iPad app

  • Get quicker access to live streams of CNN and HLN TV

    Since 2011, you’ve been able to watch a live stream of CNN and HLN TV in our iPhone and iPad apps. After the last update to our apps in December, some users mistakenly thought we had removed the ability to watch the CNN and HLN live streams. We heard your feedback and have made it easier to access the live streams for CNN and HLN.  

    You can always access live streams by tapping on the red "WatchCNN" button in the upper right-hand corner of the home screen or by opening up the app navigation and choosing "Watch CNN" from the "TV" menu. You will find both the CNN and HLN streams here.
