I have reviewed this app several times. I am an admitted & practicing news junkie. I don't know why but I think it's important to know what's going on in the world. CNN's Android App bundles the news up into a nice package & I am easily kept up to date on the bigger "happenings in our world every day. I'm in touch with civilization no matter where I live. If CNN doesn't give me all the depth I might want on a story...at least they keep me informed that there IS a story. I can search for details on other apps. Finally, whenever I get new phones...the first app I download is CNN. Thank you CNN. Whatever you're doing...please continue doing it.
I love the convenience of this app. I don't always have time to watch hours of news stories but I can still get the "meat and potatoes" of what's going on in politics day to day. The number of notifications I receive is set to my preference so I'm not bombarded with bells and dings all day. When a topic I'm interested in pops up, I click it and go straight to the story. I also enjoy watching CNN live in the mornings. Great app.
Woke up this morning to find that CNN's version of "Breaking News" to push to my phone overnight was that Oprah's speech at the golden globes was great and she might run for president in two years. In a world with genocide, nuclear posturing, and multiple sociopathic leaders, this qulified as "Breaking News"?! Fake news indeed!!! Rest in peace CNN. Unistalled immediately and I'm never coming back.
More software IMPROVED not. Software developers or maybe those in charge have lost their minds. Remember New Coke? Update Jan 2018. It continues to get worse. Constant bogus weak connection errors. Cant load an article but can load a video. Hmmm. Substantively, CNNs content is not as bad as Fox nonNews. Its time for alternative news folks. TYT. RT. Etc.....
Very slow. The articles seem to be getting more tabloidy by the day. Very little relevant international affairs coverage compared to their coverage of celebrity drama. What annoys me the most is that they have the resources to be an excellent news outlet, but choose to focus more on making money than providing good content.
Best App Ever. I depend on this app to tell me what's going on in the World any where, and every where. Love this!!! To the people that say it has too many ads and doesn't load quick enough, 1st they need ads to pay for the app to be free, duh, and the reason it doesn't "load quick enough" is bc your phone sucks. I have a Samsung Galaxy S8, and this app loads quick. Quit complaining. Utube has too many ads too but that's why we get them for free.
