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?
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.
CNN Is the ONLY NEWS CHANNEL I listen to or watch, I have it on my phone, my home page on my PC , and on my tablets. There IS nothing that is or can match CNN.
What happened to notification sounds? They have disappeared!!
- Even more bug fixes and performance enhancements.
