The app is getting worse with updates

This is a review of the actual app:

I have had and used this app successfully for years but the last redesign created too many bugs. There have been frequent updates but it seems each new update has its own challenges. I have an iPhone 7 and reliable wifi/cell service but there are so many hitches with video play back that the app is becoming unusable. I'm not sure if it's bandwidth on CNNs end or what, but almost every time I'm watching a press conference or breaking news - like this weekend - the live tv feed freezes and rarely comes back. I often close out the app and relaunch as that seems to get me back to the live feed quicker than waiting for the app to try and resolve it. Sometimes my screen goes blank and I get just audio and the only way to fix it to close and relaunch. Don't get me started on the frequent "live preview expired" issue that has been happening more frequently..

5 Outta 5 Stars ~ Would Free Kekistan Again

I'd rather bust both of my gonads with a sledgehammer and get gonorrhea from a goat than delete this extremely reliable news source from my life. It has kept me from believing the truth about my fellow Kekistani people and continually feeds me subtle yet misleading articles of that horrible citrus they call 'Trump.' Most importantly, it puts Normistan to shame!! So overall, as a tube fed sheeple, I give this app a solid 5 stars, or as an Alt-Right Supremacist would say, 'would meme again!' FREE KEKISTAN!!

Thank you!

Thanks for reporting the facts as they are!

Jim Acosta needs a raise, what he puts up with while remaining so professional is fantastic. He has increased his trust level exponentially with America this year! Many of us are routing for him. The incorrect and insulting attacks on him continue to show the weakness of this administration. Good for him to continue to be there every day. People are paying attention. The concise and consistently factual reporting tell the story, and it is greatly appreciated!
