This app is extremely annoying. Despite turning off all notifications the app still sends alerts. Most of the notifications are about unimportant things, not worth being interrupted for. Not recommended. Update April 2, 2020: This app is still garbage. Why don't they have a 15 second skip forward/backward feature? Sometimes you need to re-watch a few seconds of video. If you move the slider rewind to video backward you have to re-watch more advertising. 👎

This CBC app operates smoothly and the option for black background and white text is a nice feature which I'll use. Being able to save stories is a nice option, an improvement over the Apple version of the app I also have. However, just saving all the current stories, at least in text only, like my BBC app does automatically, would be even better.

CBC News on a browser hounds you to download the app (not cool), but once you do, the webpage/services otherwise available using a browser either disappear or are broken. For ex., the share article option - it brings up apps to do that, but the list doesnt scroll up, just down (?); also, the comments section is completely removed; &, GPS location for local news - it won't load GPS location w phone GPS & location turned on. These are just way too many stupid annoyances, esp w the download nagging
