Review from Sheryl Adams
This app is the most informative app I've ever used. Your reporting is clear and concise. I like how most of your reporters include their background so there is no misunderstanding or possible questions of bias. I especially like Chris Cillizza!
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.
While commuting on bart, I like reading the news on the CNN app. Connectivity issue have improved. Reason I don't give it a 5? Too many irrelevant pictures for an article. It is frustrating to click on an article and totally unrelated pictures of other stories are shown. This also impacts download times!
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.
It has good info and I love CNN. But the app is very buggy. It will allow me to cast to me Google chromecast for a while but will always shut off randomly or stall forever and I have to close and reopen the app. It's rather annoying when I get into what is being shared and I can't get the stream to come back up.
Introducing enhanced support for CNN podcasts: Listen to the news throughout your day – whether in the app or not, you can hear the latest from CNN.
