Editors' Notes

We’re diehard fans of 24-hour news channels, and CNNGo combines the depth of CNN’s reporting and original programming with the instant gratification we crave. A constantly updated package of on-demand top stories gives us the immediate news fix we need, while cable subscribers can stream CNN and HLN live right on Apple TV. We can neither confirm nor deny reports that we say “THIS…is CNN!” every time we fire up the app.

Good at news but technically a disaster


I have enjoyed using CNN app for years but in recent weeks it frequently opens with a black screen which can last for minutes. It is taking many minutes to update. It constantly tells me my network is not working - but I check and my network is fine and other news apps updating instantly. I have deleted app and re-installed but the problem continues. Maybe Trump supporters are hacking your app? Sadly, if that’s the case it’s worked - I have deleted your app.

Fine, But Abuses Push Notifications


I downloaded CNN last year to get the US view of the 2016 election (I'm a US expat). Since then, I have been frustrated at the alerts CNN push through to my phone.

The most egregious thing is the loose definition of 'Breaking News'. Today, to pick one example among many, I checked my phone to read 'President Trump focused on tax reform at a lunch with GOP senators and didn't talk about his bitter feud with sen. Bob Corker'.

How on earth is 'man doesn't talk about something' Breaking News!? This is a consistent themes of CNN push alerts, using a breaking news headline for analysis and the absence of events.
