What's New

Version 4.1.5

Our story pages now load faster and have been rebuilt to address earlier formatting problems, like overlapping images. You'll also now be able to resize text through your system settings. We've made accessibility improvements to better support voiceover. And finally, in the Today view of your Notification Centre, we've added a square image which allows more headline text to be visible at a glance.

Editors' Notes

Earlier than most Canadians, the CBC has been part of our cultural heritage for decades. One wonders what these radio pioneers of the 1930s would think of our modern technology. Whatever device you choose, you can rely on this intuitive and comprehensive app to stay up-to-date on the latest national and international news.

Slow and buggy


Very slow to load pictures. Stories are simply headlines since iOS 11 can’t go back to original screen when tapping on back arrow. Freezes. A lot

Back button option not working


Since getting the latest update a couple of days ago when I go into an article and try to go back to all articles it will not move. Have to close the app and start looking again.
