Review from A Google User
Samsung Nexus Galaxy Love love love this app. CNN is my all time favorite national news so having this app is awesome! Its reliable and the stories are well written.
Was better before the update I think the bug fixes need bug fixes. It was better before the update, and the stuff they supposedly fixed is worse than before. You all need to get your stuff together over there or I'll be moving on. Oh, and another thing, how about making it possible for images to fit the whole screen when you want to view them. It would be nice to not have to hold my phone to my face to look at those little thumbnails. Just let me click on them to view them.
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.
Takes too long to load It takes so long to load on my phone that is only 6 months old, that I'm usually too impatient and abort, and read other news apps.
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!!!
- Even more bug fixes and performance enhancements.
