How does CNN app work?

When the user first sets up the app, they can set their location to see the weather at all times. If users have an Internet provider connected they can GO LIVE to see what is happening without a television. If a user views a story they want to save, they simply tap the star in the upper right hand corner. There is a drop down box on the upper left that allows users to find saved stories. The drop down box will also take users to their favorite CNN shows like Lisa Ling or Anderson Cooper 360. In addition to news articles, users can watch video news clips. Many of the seniors we work with have requested news apps. CNN is one of the top apps among our users. They like its ease of use and ability to watch news on demand.

How will users benefit?

Reading and listening to the news helps cognitive skills. As humans age, the brain needs mental exercise to stay active and alive. Mental exercise stimulates the brain, often providing long-lasting positive effects regarding thinking and reasoning skills, memory and processing speed.
