The widget for Android is terrible. Why cant news organizations get this right? (The Washington Post is the only good one I've found). CNN's is constantly blank and says to reload, then does nothing when you click on reload. On those occasions when it really does show a summary of news in the widget, any story you click on does nothing. You basically have to click on "more news," which takes you to the app and is the same as if I just put the CNN app logo on my screen and click that. Useless.

Was left in 2021...NO IMPROVEMENT TO THE APP OR VIDEOS HAS BEEN MADE IN NOW ALMOST 3 YEARS. REDUCED RATING TO 2 STARS FOR NOT LISTENING TO YOUR USERS!!!!! Sure wish I could enlarge the small images since the text in them is usually microscopic and impossible to read, often making the information absolutely useless. Otherwise, news is useful, accurate and reliable.

I've had the app for years, but over the last few weeks it has taken 1-2 minutes (literally) to load. Nothing has changed with my phone, and I've checked all the settings that I can think of. I've even reinstalled the app a couple times to no avail. This is the only app that's causing me problems, so I have to believe it's the app and not my phone. If this continues, I'll just have to delete the app and go with another news source.
