Customer Reviews

Enough with the adds. They are destroying this app

The CNET app, has been, for a long time, very subpar. Video advertisements continually crash and break the app. If that wasn't enough, now they've added new ones which are extremely annoying and make the app not worth using anymore. I don't even like scrolling through this app to read news anymore, because every time I do, an advertisement pops up through scrolling at this point, which takes me out of the app to Safari. If you guys don't fix this, I will be boycotting the app because I'm sick of this. This is the most disgusting form of forced advertising I have ever seen. How about just building in some decent advertisements and allowing people the choice to click on them or skip them, instead of forcing people to click on bad advertisements. I guess if all you care about is the amount of adds viewed, keep doing what you're doing, but it's really frustrating to your viewers.


First comes the complaints with the app, the whole slide to go to the next review needs to be removed I find myself cursing in frustration when I try to scroll down to read the next user review and I'm moved to another review also it crashes constantly with me next comes my disappointment in cnet I mean seriously there's some half tailed reviews and grammar errors also in the review on the alienware 14 the person complains on how the hardware can't push 4k games and then in the review for the hp omen there's a complaint about how there's not a 4k option cnet as a whole needs to get there act together there needs to communication between reviewers so that there's not so many conflicting opinions Finally I want to acknowledge that I am complaining about grammar and used terrible grammar in my review and the reason why is simple I'm not getting paid to write this like cnet reviewers are

Refresh FAIL (still)

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 a new "shiny" as we say in the gaming world. A new shiny that doesn't work as advertised. Faster? Faster you say? The app doesn't load up any faster on iPhone 6+. And when it does finally load, as soon as you finish reading a story and go back to your home area, the app completely freezes for as long as 10 seconds before becoming functional again. This isn't faster, this is actually SLOWER.

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?
