Simplistic piece of software that allows you to keep an eye on the latest CNN headline news right from your desktop, while allowing you to view the entire news content via your default web browser

editor's review



specifications Desktop is an Air-based software application designed specifically for helping you check out the latest CNN headline news right from your desktop.

Simple looks

The utility places a small panel on your screen that automatically reveals the recent CNN headline news. You can move the primary window to the desired screen area using the drag-drop-support.

Main features Desktop gives you the possibility to read the headlines news and refresh the current information with minimal effort.

With just one click on the desired news, the tool automatically displays the entire content of the news via your default web browser. Since it doesn’t require much computer knowledge to work with this program, even less experienced users can learn to master the entire process in no time.

During our testing we have noticed that Cross Desktop carries out a task quickly, and no errors showed up throughout the entire process. As it would be expected from such a small utility, it remains light on system resources, so it doesn’t hamper computer performance, nor interfere with other programs’ functionality.

On the downside, you are not allowed to set a custom time for automatically refreshing the information displayed in the main pane, limit the number of news to a user-defined value, resize the primary window, pick the background color, and alter the text in terms of font, font style, size, and color.

Bottom line

All things considered, Desktop proves to be a simple desktop enhancement utility. It can be mastered by all types of users, regardless of their experience level. Desktop was reviewed by Ana Marculescu
