CBC News updates iOS app, adds new audio playback feature

screen568x568The main news app for CBC News has received an update that lets users listen to content while browsing the app or using other features on your iPad. The new feature is not contained in the iPhone version, but the app description says that it will be coming soon.

The app, from the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, had been receiving 1-star reviews from users complained that after the opening the app they were getting only a black screen. As a result, the app has over 1,800 1-star reviews compared to only 434 5-star reviews. But the crashing issue was not universally reported so it is difficult to know whether it might have been related to operating systems that are not up-to-date.

The update is too new to tell whether it has cured the black screen issue.
