Customer Reviews

Slow loads and crashes. Delete and reinstall

My last review is below. I finally updated my operating system. Deleted all the apps I wasn't using, then reinstalled CNN. Works like a charm. Content is still rather stagnant except for the election which I am tired of. I would give it 4 stars if they updated their content t more often.

I am so tired of the slow loading of screens and crashes I often turn it off in frustration and disgust. Also the pop up ads for CNN programs are annoying and often will not close. So goodbye CNN. I usually enjoy the content, but very frustrated with your response time, load time and crash frequency!

Need a subscription option!

I'll pay to get rid of the ads. Please give me the option. I can barely stand the 15 second ads they put in front of videos. But now they're trying to sneak in 30 second ads here and there and I can't stand it. I won't look at an article that's got an ad that long in front of it. I really appreciate the occasional times when there is no ad and I just get to see what I'm looking for. What a concept! The pop up ads are also extremely annoying as well.

Very useful app

The app now refreshes which is a HUGE improvement. I can watch the videos. I don't have any of the problems indicated in the other reviews. I mainly read the Home section. Keeps me up-to-date on national and international news. I also enjoy reading the human interest stories.
