Great app but still some way to go.

Wonderful app, one of the top when compared with other news outlets. But needs work. At some point it stopped working for me but that got resolved (thank you). Now what I seem to have issues with is the bar at the bottom that "should" allow you to rewind whatever part of the news is playing. That bar seems like it's only there for show. At first the bar would not allow rewind at all, it would move back but keep playing live show. Now it starts to move back, and accurately does so, but only for a second or two before returning to the current live show again. Can we please look into that?

Now for another important suggestion which I hope you are currently working on...split screen capability! CNNGO is designed for multitaskers and people constantly on the go like myself. The lack of this feature is making me have to choose between keeping up on the news and getting work done. It's not hard to guess my choice when faced with this dilemma, but it's a choice many of us would rather not have to make. I thank you for your hard work and all the brain that has gone into making this app a reality. Don't stop improving!

I can't live a day without my CNN app

Perfect way to get the news I need to know while I drink my coffee in the morning and have my herbal tea in the evening. LOVE IT! I've been using it daily for the past few years and it's my 'go to' place when I need simple, clean journalism, without all the bias. However lately my app has been crashing quite a bit. Occasionally links misdirect to the wrong story. And I wish you didn't need a cable subscription to use CNN GO. I would be willing to pay a small fee for access to the videos. I feel we are coming to a place in time where there is so much information and so many sources, that the only model that makes any sense is modified ala carte. Even with these small annoyances I would say that reading the news on CNN really makes my day, is relaxing, easy to use and keeps me informed quickly. I like it even more than Facebook. But that's just me I guess. What if I could link my credit card to CNN and whenever I want to watch a long video, like The Secrets Of GI Joe, that a quarter could be deducted? Just a thought.

😒 won't let me sign in to unlock

Use to love my CNN live streaming..but, now it suddenly requires me to sign in to unlock...but, once I do that I'm left with a blank pop up window...please fix it ASAP! Then, I can give it the 5 🌟 it use to deserve...thx
All things are working well. So, here's my 5⭐️ rating as promised. Would prefer less ads when opening video segments. Seems once you open one or two, you should be given a 'waiver' on any others. Besides, they're usually the same repeated ad! Doesn't make me want to 'buy' the product, for sure!
