Shortly after CNN announced the upcoming availability of its news application for Windows Phone devices, NBC made headlines with its NBC app for Google’s Android platform.
However, the latter has already published the application in the Android Market, while CNN’s app should hit Marketplace in the following weeks.
NBC app provides access to various shows and videos, including highlights, previews and episode recaps. In addition, users will also have access to exclusive photo galleries, interactive games and trivia. According to NBC, users will have access to full episodes in the near future.
