Customer Reviews


The good thing is that just about any topic you want is available.

1. When I get a notification on my phone and see an article I want to read, I can never find it. When I tap in the notification(article), it should take me straight to that article. After all, it's what I want to read. Why else would I tap on that article out of the half dozen other notifications (articles) I got that day. Instead it just opens up the cnn app's home page, and then I have to spend 1-5 min looking for the article I tapped on.

2. Unless there is an option I haven't found(will look again later), why can I not select the type of articles I get notifications on? I really don't care who won some gold medal in Japan or that there is a blizzard in Germany or who won the World Series. If those article interest you, you should get notifications on sports or world weather or whatever... I however have no interest and feel that 90% of the notifications are what I consider junk mail articles.

If you read this far into my review. Congrats. Sorry I wasted 60 seconds of your life.

Keep up-to-date one out of country

The title pretty much says it all. While traveling this app keeps me plugged in to what's going on in the US and around the world. Highly recommended.

Terrible editing on their mobile app

The story ends by stating the 6 people who "contributed towards" the story. Which one of them checked it over for spelling mistakes? Terrible editing is quite telling of a news agency, if you can even call CNN a news agency any more.
