Not good

I have an iPhone SE and this app has had constant issues - even before, when I was using the 5S. Stories seem to jump around when scrolling through them (as if the app can't figure out reasonable refresh timing/frequency), and no videos work at all - except those short clips that auto load which is more of a frustration than a feature. CNN - stop trying to get fancy and just fix the problems with a simple, reliable app. Or at least offer an option for a "lite" version without the bells and whistles that only cause problems and consume bandwidth. I probably won't stick with this for much longer.

Horrible app. Terrible/Fake News!!!!

App won't stop crashing. Upon opening, instant crash, Over and over. And when it does work, it still crashes time to time when playing videos. And also it double played videos, you would hear the video you are watching, and then 5 seconds later it played the audio over again so you are hearing 2 of the same audio tracks, one 5 seconds behind the other. Not that their news is worth squat, they are very much a left wing Fake News outlet! They will report the hell out of anything that makes conservatives look bad yet they refuse to cover the opposite. Fake news!!!!

Could be worse. Next update will prove that

This app has been sliding steadily downhill for the last couple years. Newest update makes it even worse than it already was. Scrolling through one story at a time instead of being able to see a bunch of headlines is brutal. Guys, I can't wait to see how you make it even worse. Gotta admit, I'm intrigued by the ever worsening look of the app
