Customer Reviews

No accessibility select option to Speak/Define

Unlike the BBC app CNN does not allow selection of text to activating speak, define, etc. Which is really annoying


I'd expect a well respected company such as CNN, to have more respect for their viewers than to have popups that send you to the App Store to cheesy video games. I understand advertising on the app as it's free to download. But I seriously doubt your typical CNN reader is interested in video games.


New version has ad popups that take you out of the app and into the App Store and it does it every 5 seconds. Makes the app unbearable
