What's New in Version 3.9.5
When you share the app with your friends (or strangers, no judgment) the link will take them to the correct app store (here, for example, or the Google Play Store if that's their thing). Other minor bugs fixes and under-the-hood improvements.
Refresh FAIL (still)
**update** another year has gone by. I clicked on this rate system completely having forgotten that I wrote this...ironically NOTHING has changed for gotten better for summer 2017...so it's shall remain as is.
I was going to change my review to more stars but you have a brand new app with brand new bugs. So you're a news outlet that reports on tech and your very own tech never seems to work. Update after update, we see broken slide shows, videos that don't load up, and now, siiiigh clicking on stories, like today's CNET Update video, just crashes the app. After 4 failed attempts (and immediate crashes) I am convinced that a tech media source, you just have no idea how to make a good product. So if you can't make one as simple as an app for iOS, how can your reviews be decent, unbiased, or even know what in the world you guys even talk about. Thankfully there are other sources that are more reliable. Mostly I have noticed your entire operation is a collection of other's work in the field with the exception of 2, Scott Stein and Brian Tong, the rest of CNET just spouts off another review only avoiding plagiarism by a few words here and there.
CBS Interactive had a CBS2/KCAL9 app for the Los Angeles market that was a complete failure. Is that why the CNET app is also such a waste of time?
The Application Is kinda lame
CNET content used to be about Tech stuff but now it's the People Magazine of Tech stuff. Movie reviews, top 5 this or top 10 that kind of content makes up MOST of the content. But the App itself is slow, some links just won't open, and the absolute worst thing that puts this app in the suchs category is that you can't adjust the font size for the articles. There is an Settings menu that lists all types of junk EXCEPT options. There is a FAQ in the settings section that tells your how to find the Settings (totally dumb) but there is no indication of what the actual options are for the App (maybe settings means something else to these developers). The only reason I keep the App is the hope that CNET will one day return to the decent Tech reporting they were once known for.
Superb info for a layman
I use 4 Apple devices daily, including iPhone, iPadAir2, Mini Retina and a MacBook Air. I am no "geek" but am a quite knowledgeable user. I get almost all my tech info from CNET and CNET Tech. It keeps me up to date on all "tech stuff" and it is clearly written for us "users". Understandable, yet site has depth, and a good record for accuracy.
Their reviews are detailed, and in my judgment show no favoritism to any tech company, including Apple! Definitely a WYSIWYG! Their ratings are very useful.
