Too many ads - having to endure the same 30-second commercial before every video clip is just too much. The live streaming continues to be hampered. No full-screen on tablets; still often forces an ad even when just switching from portrait to landscape and vice-versa. CNN has the best journalism team in news, but this app is incredibly sub-standard by comparison.
What a horrible design, I do not use my phone to look at news or any other app that is specifically for reading rather than just looking at pictures, on my tablets those huge blocks with a brief description of the article content is quite unsophisticated, learn from the design of The Washington Post or The New York Times. This new CNN's app design targets as its "audience" chimpanzees and other primates or perhaps only people that enjoys images and are fond of the funnies in a Sunday newspaper. Ugly, ugly, ugly!!!!
LOVE THIS APP! I love having quick 24hr access to CNN news. Having the app makes it easy & effortless for me to get updates & new news quickly throughout the day. I use the CNN app everyday & at night before I go to sleep. The CNN app makes it so "quick & easy" for me to always be current & informed! Great app!
This is a one sided view opinion site NOT news. I like to be as informed as possible so I listen to and watch multiple news sources. CNN is by far the worst. They are openly lying in many cases and omitting facts that would prove their narrative false in others. I cannot trust what they say on any topic if they are willing to hide facts for their own agendas.
The app is terrible. It constantly hangs, it often opens to the wrong story, and it takes forever to load. The widget is, by far, the worst widget I've ever experienced. It never works and just hangs. Giving it two stars only because it does show news, which is it purpose.
Clunky, slow, breaking news alerts come way after AP, BBC, and Fox... Pretty bad for the "number 1 news network" to not be the first or second one. Sometimes, NPR is the second fastest...
