Worse then before

Update: of course the latest update adds even more bugs. Now when you watch any video, after you arrow out of it, it resets to the top of the de toon page. IE.. Say you have already scrolled down 2/3 of the home page and want to watch a video. You play video, once video is complete, you use nav arrows on app to get back to list of stories in that section. Well now it take you to the very top and you need to scroll back through the 2/3 you already saw to get to where you were. Ridiculous!! Do these developers even check the apps when they update?

The new update is terrible. Now random ads for Google pop up. You can be reading a story or s rolling and an ad pops up. When will developers realize they do more harm to themselves by inflicting ads like this on there users then just staying with the already annoying ads throughout the sections and stories. I make it a point to note every pop up ad and every Bombardment of ads so I can avoid dealing with those companies.

Slow, buggy, and crashes, but otherwise great

The app can take 4 minutes to load, and get to watch live tv. And when you get there you have a 20% chance of actually using the full functionality of watching segments from earlier in the day. You may get video not available, or this episode has not yet aired yet, etc. ( these are PREVIOUS segments from 10, 20 minutes ago. And when you do get the error, forget about watching. Find some other app.
Otherwise when it does work, it's very nice. Like the ability to quickly catch up on live news. The articles are ok. The ability to switch been CNN,hon, and CNN international, a+. Would like the ability to jump around like on CNN for Hun and CNN int. but not if the behavior is like what I described earlier.
I'd say get the app, but be prepared to find other means to watch CNN, if that is your goal.

Probably the best News format

I currently use this app on the new iPad and iPhone. The app has a very clean and simple format, extremely user friendly. Besides, Pew polls show that CNN is the most trusted and least biased cable News network. Ratings show that when a specific tragedy or event occurs and people want information, CNN viewership spikes upward more than the other cable news networks. For that reason, they are my main source of internet and cable news.
