Customer Reviews

used to be a great app

I used to love this app. I like the anchor people on cnn, I like their bringing in analysts discuss the breaking news, but unfortunately the greed of the company that owns cnn has made it so unpleasant to use that I have given up and gotten some other news apps to try out. If they don't work out, then I will go back to reading the news online. My main complaint is that now you are forced to watch a series of commercials no matter what you do. Both the CNN live part and the regular news part forces you to watch commercials You can cannot even mute the advertising, as when you try to do it on the screen it brings up amore advertising. The last three weeks have been so disgusting with the amount of ads one is forced to watch that tonight I have given up. Too bad. I really like the programs.


I don't understand why the home page doesn't have the most current news. The top five spots may be the latest but everything else is up to luck. I've even gone back later the same day for my husband to read a story and I can't find it, but I can find the story about great vacation spots from three weeks ago. I also don't understand why the commercials are soooo loud I need to turn down the volume, but then your story comes on and I can't hear it. Turn up the volume on YOUR stories! You want me to watch them right???

Sports news is not breaking news

I get so sick and tired of getting a breaking news alert only to find out it's who won a sports game. That's not breaking news. People who want sports news can use the ESPN app where they let you customize the news alerts you want to get.
