Where is it CNN?

The app is good, but there are a LOT of articles that aren't in the opinion section which are very opinionated. One example is on today's home page entitled "Tax the poor!" It focuses on states raising tax from, using the Kansas example, 6.15 to 6.5%. Is this author serious? European countries have sales taxes, known as VAT from 17-23%. 6.5? Stop whining. It actually costs money to repair roads, call out the snow plows, rescue folks from flash floods, pay police and fire departments, and schools not to mention maintain government buildings, infrastructure like water and electricity grids, national guard. States need money to survive just like people. It comes from tax revenue!

Income tax in Europe and Australia is 50%. So when you pay, 13, 15 % you can stop whining about that too.

Perhaps your journalist should move to Europe and pay out all those taxes, plus 6-10 dollars a gallon for gas.

App Review

Who do you have for customers. You must have cave people for customers. I don't usually write reviews, nor do I usually read reviews; but this time I was so amazed I read 100 reviews & I couldn't 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 there's 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 today's 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.

Improve push notification links

I love having CNN app on my phone but when push notifications come through, it would be helpful to be able to click the link and be taken directly to the article, or at least a page that has that article at the top of the page. Instead it takes me to the homepage and it's either difficult to find the link to the article or it's not there at all. Sometimes the notification cuts off mid-sentence and I cannot even see the rest of the alert, then I get dumped into the home page and cannot find the article, so it's not very helpful.
