It's okay not the best news app out there. There are a lot more glitches to fix. Some videos and articles never open up to view/read. CNN on TV uses state of the art technology and graphics to keep viewers interested and to understand the news better, in contrast the mobile app pales in comparison and it just feels 'unfinished' and 'underwhelming'.
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.
C"u""u" Absolutely love the commercials they play flawless. Your videos and stories with photos. Well that's another story. I'll sum it up. You need to replace the individual. Deleted the app, reinstalled a week later worked great. Now back to square one. Experiencing technical difficulties AGAIN!!!
Apps ads Can't stand to wait 30 seconds for some videos .I may as well watch TV .the news is there but please spare me 30 seconds of ads.
No notifications All is working except that I do not receive notification alerts when something really big happens. Otherwise I'd give CNN five stars.
- Even more bug fixes and performance enhancements.
