Some features don't work

The stories that require clicking a blue button freeze my phone and crash the app 100% of the time. It's so frustrating because I don't realize those are different until I click to read them, and by then it's too late. Also, why are so many of the stories videos now? I don't want to watch a commercial and the a video to know about a news story. I just copy the title and search for the story on another website where I can READ it. I am not going to watch your videos CNN, just stop.

Avid user

I use this app probably 4-8 times a day, I love the interface. Crashes once in a while and sometimes lags when opening, but I am using it on an iphone4. App needs screen rotate to be locked permanently, other than for videos of course. Otherwise happy with it


I was very displeased with this CNN app, most people would think of CNN as at least trying to be somewhat non-biased when approaching domestic and foreign news, but all that is shown is the "miraculous accomplishments" of the left wing party and how much more of a saint they are compared to the GOP. I do not personally recommend this app to anyone that is looking to find news the shows both sides of the story.
