Way too many ads

The latest updated has changed the formate of looking at all the different articles you can read with a pop up of what's on CNN the TV channel. And they pop up so you have to exit out of the ad just to see what's on the news page. It doesn't just happen once it continues to happen as you are trying to look at what you want to read but you can't because these dumb ads keep popping up. Once you get by the ads you will notice the news is not updated very often you might just see the top story at the top of the page for more than one day. This is not news.

Ads Pop In

An ad for a TV show continually pops open when I am either looking for a story or trying to read one. I have to close it to get back to what I am reading. This occurs several times which makes the use of the CNN app irritating and a waste of my time. I just did the upgrade and it still happens. Is this a bug they missed or an advertising strategy? Maybe I will be back to see if there is a fix but probably not.

Ads keep taking over my screen

Recently an ad for a cnn show keeps popping up in my screen and taking over what I am trying to read. It's happened at least 5 times in the last few minutes. It is so distracting and frustrating that I cannot read the news. What use is this app if I'm not able to read the news. If an update doesn't fix it, I'll be deleting the app.
