Terrible reading experience The "page flip" effect is clumsy and distracting enough to make the app -- to me, at least -- nearly unusable. What's wrong with a basic scroll?
Much like CNN's relevance, their app is also crap. 1) Every time I click on a Breaking News push notice, it takes me to the CNN homepage instead of taking me directly to the breaking news itself. 2) The Breaking News push notice does not fit into my push notifications bar. Funny how other media outlets manage to accommodate this in their apps. 3) I hate the flipboard layout. At least let me choose my layout preference. The flipboard layout is too sensitive and I invariably end up back at the homepage 99% of the time. This app is crap.
App hangs up constantly. App keeps hanging up after viewing several stories in a row... Uninstalled it thinking issue with app. Still hangs up. Going to uninstall again and forget it...
Ok, but... The thing that makes this news app secondary for me is the way the pages turn. You need an option for scrolling instead of turning. It's annoying when a glare comes in the way and you have to move the whole device instead of just scrolling the text up or down a bit. Thanks.
From 1 to 3 stars App is much better now that several improvements have been made. Embedded links from the website stories often still don't work. As well as native videos. I use a stock Galaxy Note 3 and CNN tries to squeeze in so many ads, that videos aren't viewable on my giant screen unless I go to full screen. Otherwise, the ads take up 75-80% of the screen when viewing video reports.
LG g3 No matter what news article I attempt to read the loading circle remains loading and I'm unable to watch videos our scroll down to read
