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.

The notifications no longer work. I've uninstalled and re-installed the app several times and made sure I enabled the notification alerts, but I still have not received any notifications. This has been an issue for the past few months. Also, the app no longer opens when selected. I've deleted and re-downloaded the app, and the problem has not been resolved. Once you open the app, you will hear "This is CNN," but the app remains on this screen and no longer shows articles or videos.

The topic separations and selection are excellent. The broadcast is good, but it's simply a summary that helps point to the more complete app offerings. Good work. 11/9/21, took time off from the news. It became "Donald TV". Came back to find A LOT of bad reviews about getting kicked to the top after reading an article. I'll check back in a month or so.
