Too bad I was hoping to find a great 1stop shop for my news and usually watch CNN on TV Even thats turning into days of repeating same coverage cut paste news from other agencies ads that take forever to load interfere with getting to the news clip Try more edgy real news take a chance CNN you used to be great VICE can teach you some tricks       Recycled outdated coverage annoying ads
This app was once a great resource Now it takes too long to load is rarely updated difficult to read because of large pictures Thinking I will delete and stick with USA Today app for my news    What happened
I used to love to get my fill of news stories from CNN But this app is freaking horrible now Constant lock ups because of the ads Im not going to restart the app 15 times just to try and read one story Im going to delete the app If it doesnt improve    Not Useful Anymore
More adds being forced down your throat Half the time when watching a video the advertisements will load fine but the video you want to see will fail or load slow or crash after the add CNN is getting worse at hyper focusing on one or two stories You will find the same two stories in 5 of the 7 sections The amount of video news available is reduced significantly to the three nobody gives a crap vital videos of the week And you cant even go onto the website without being forced to use the mobile crayon version The BBC news app has way more news over a broad non hyperfocused range that updates way more often And its actually good news where the reporters put effort into their pieces CNN hyper focuses boringFOX is crazy hateful annoyingBBC focused on death disturbing    Getting worse every update
For such a large news media cnn is you think they would hire someone that knows what they are doing with their app I love getting the notifications but as soon as click on the notification the story isnt therereally cnnreally    Needs MAJOR improvement
Lots of articles closing when in the middle All the time Been going on for months The links to articles at the bottom of the page mostly ad sponsored but some seem decent end up sending you to sites that dont open or have way too many ads and take forever to flip throughload If you manage to hit a good article from one of those links there is no way to forward it Then when you return to the original CNN article many of the links at the bottom have changed So if you see more than one article you may want to read you have to choose the one that sounds the best because when you return to the CNN page after reading that article the other one you wanted to read next will likely be gone and replaced with yet another Really shocked at such poor overall quality for CNN Will keep trying tho in the hope that theyre working on it       Jro9
Greedy CNN inundates us with adds App became unusable    Im deleting it
Great app                Great
New version freezes in the middle of scrolling 99 of time    Freezes all the time
I go to fox 4 some news CNN seems to be favorite the left    Not that good
This lot freezes a lot and just shuts downTOO MANY ADSIm on an iPhone 6    COULD DO MUCH BETTER
Two things1 Based on the content CNN is really an MSNBC surrogate2 This is a poorly developed app that inundates the user with adds at every turnDo you think people take the time to watch them    CNN Not fair and balanced
The app is good for checking on events             Miss Jane
Thank you for making me sit through a 30 second ad that loads perfectly only to get to the actual CNN video that never loadsgreat job CNN Glad to know the advertisements are working though    NOT GOOD
Shuts off unexpectedly beside that good app          Mr Brow
Ads Really Why would you fix whats not broken This new update 2 thumbs down    Bad
When you report the news you definitely do a great job I watch CNN news mostly because you seem to be unbiased But when you show programs such as that Anthony travel show Im gone you get got away from what you do best If I want to watch a show like that Ill go to the travel channel or a cooking channel People go to CNN to get the news So I can no longer give you five stars I give you two stars for making in my opinion bad TV programming       CNN NEWS
The interface and content is so cheesy that it seems better suited for The National Enquirer Then the app constantly nags me to rate it Well here you go I only use this app because Fox News app is even more worthless    Pitiful
This is a poorly designed and executed app from a leading news station Its sad that the app is so dysfunctional Without a doubt CNN has the resources to create a better product than this The app is buggy Old I mean old stories frequent the new news page I am often mislead about current events The only thing that really works well are the news alerts    They can do better
Im sick of finding a story with a video and the video is not related to the exact topic Im finding more and more video like this Example trump bullies someone Then the video that is attached talks about his poll numbers FIX IT    App is getting on my nerves
After every news clips there is 30 sec add very frustrating seems like watching QVC than CNN    Less news more add
Read it every morning Thanks for keeping it free and easy to navigate                Super
I dont use many news apps but when I do its CNN And its free Works wonderfully on my Apple 6                Consice and easy to use
Who do you have for customers You must have cave people for customers I dont usually write reviews nor do I usually read reviews but this time I was so amazed I read 100 reviews I couldnt believe how many totally out of it customers you had Previously there were the complaints about the lead in voice that was on the App now theres the complaints about everything on the App These people want a newspaper not an App they should go back to their caves read a newspaper not an up to todays news App This is 2014 not 1914 Get with the program get your head out of the sand Excellent App do not go backwards keep up the good work No need to go backward Thank you for an excellent App                App Review
but that changed when you started paying daily hourly homage to Trump    Used to be one of my regulars
I am surprised to read so many negative reviews of this app I use it every day and find that it is very stable and has the latest news Ive had no problems on my iPhone 6 since I installed it To me it meets my needs nicely             Use this app every day
Half the time the content doesnt load       Insessent prompts to rate the app
This app is truly bad all around The updated for news stories are horribly slow The updates for privacy happen way too often its annoyingThe video have commercials almost as long as the news video It really cant get any worse    Not hard to explain why
30 seconds ads required before watching any video Nope       Too many ads
I enjoy reading news soundbites in my effort to stay current on a daily basis But the absurd number of ads that I have to endure in my quest for news reduces my desire to click on CNN In addition there are senseless empty spaces as you scroll down to read the news And often videos fail to load I suggest you retool this app and provide us with uptotheminute news that provides sufficient details that can be read and absorbed quickly          Frustrated
I like the CNN reporting style with its slightly biased liberal leanings What I dont like is how the app crashes And what I absolutely hate are the typos and poor writing Does ANYONE proofread their work before they publish it online It certainly doesnt seem that way These arent texts you are putting out there For the love of god PROOFREAD the stuff before you dump it on us          Is there no longer any pride
Love the new interface Really informative storys and love the cnn breaking news updates                Great app
Thats only I watch and you should                Great app
Ive used this app for a long time because I enjoy getting my news from cnn However this app is complete garbage Every page on this app is flooded with advertisements that can easily be accidentally tapped while scrolling and the fact that this app cant go more than 15 minutes without crashing really shows how mediocre the app itself is In other words the app as a whole is simply Weak    Weak
Ever since the most recent update occurred I havent been able to read a single article because the app crashes once Ive left the main app page So so disappointed with its current state Cant use the app at all at this point    Crashes upon opening any article
Nice features             Reliable audiovideo sync
No complaints                Good App
After a recent app update the last line of every paragraph in every article is dropped Its incredibly annoying makes the articles almost unreadable I used to use this app every day but I have to go elsewhere for my news now    Fail
I enjoy the news stories but the videos are disappointing as I have to sit through ads first             Good app
I read CNN news daily thanks                Nice News App
I like this app It works when I need it to The news coverage is excellent Every news outlet has some bias However Ive never felt like cnn is too obvious             I hear it from CNN 1st
The cnn app used to be good but now they always focus on only a handful on stories they feel are most important on the home page They also seem to be joining many other news organizations in their bias in what they choose to report Going to have to find a new source to give me more news variety       Used to be good
I use this app everyday however with the latest update it is buggy freezes displays no content hides the end of sentences until you scroll and more Why does this app keep getting worse you probably hired a know offshore team to code it Go back and get some new developers shame on them    Another really bad update
Excellent I enjoy the site the TV show on cable and everything about CNN                Excellent
The most recent update is awful I dont think I can use the app anymore The font is giant so it now takes forever to read and you have to scroll constantly There are way too many videos I also used to scroll through the headlines quickly before heading down to the subway and this would allow me to read stories without an Internet connection Now they dont populate anymore so I ant use the app during my commute What a massive fail I need to find a new news app that meets my needs    DONT UPDATE YOUR VERSION
The stories with video should kick off when you select them They lock up and then you cant get out A user should have the choice of a video or a text version USA Today is so much betterFor CNN to have such a bad app is very disappointing          So bad now
Been using this app nightly for a very long time Yes it hangs up yes it has bugs yes it seems they take short cuts to produce the articles in it But what I really dislike is the news articles seem to stay there well beyond their interest As the world leader in News you have the worlds worst news app    Lacking
I use the app and the full CNNcom site Both are terribly slow to load Seems like too much junk running in the background Bleacher is the worst of the worst Wont load or run I want my news and sports faster Many times I go to other sites which will load quicker       CNN
Get my news but improvements needed          Still room for improvement
I like being able to watch cnn and stream wherever I go I just wish the app was more stable          Pretty good
