Glitches and has some problem.
Now, don't get me wrong, I love CNET. I love the quality news and content it delivers. However, there are a couple of problems with this app. Sometimes when I scroll down all the way for older content it dosen't load them and instead the circle just keeps spinning and spinning doing nothing. I have to close the app and try again usually multiple times until it finally loads the content. If they fix that issue that I have, I would be delighted. Other wise, this app is great.
Update: Most of the glitches were fixed. However, the app crashes whenever I read reviews. Also, whenever I read articles and spend a lot of time on it, I go back to the menu where the articles are and then it sends me to the top instead of where I was.
Very disappointing app
I'm very disappointed in Cnet's app. One would assume that a company who reviews consumer electronic devices would make apps that actually worked correctly on consumer electronic devices. Cnet's app has been buggy on every iPhone or iPad I have installed it on from the beginning, with crashes opening the app, videos that don't load properly, links to stories and reviews that have a blank page with no content. Now on my iPhone 5s the app won't even load, it hangs on the red Cnet screen with the spinning loading wheel. I have tried force quitting, reinstalling, waiting as long as 45 minutes to see if it would load and restarting the iPhone, but the app still doesn't work. Cnet you should be embarrassed. Why should I trust you when you can't even get this right? Perhaps I should consume my tech news from another company. Very disappointed.
Pease fix embedded browser
I love the app, but every time I click a link in a review it opens the embedded browser which doesn't render images correctly. I try to scroll through the images, but the width is incorrect and it gets confused. Many other popular apps allow the ability to open the web page in safari through the share icon. The only option you have in the embedded browser is to reload the page or send an email. Please fix the image issue in embedded browser and add open in safari option. Thanks!
