  • USE of White lettering Feb 25, 2021

    By CLCREATE
    The use of white lettering over an image on the app that describes the essence of the article. The “headline” informs me if I might want to click on the article - more often than not it cannot be read at least in part because it’s not all against a darker background. Could you not use some other color or banner so one can read the basic headline that’s over a particular report. Often I am looking for a quick overview and if I see a headline over the image that I want to come back to I can’t really make out what it is saying. My friends who use the app agree & have the same issue (Most of us are in a hurry and will take mental note & come back later to an article of interest for the more in-depth information ). It just makes no sense & surprising that CNN has not noticed the issue. If I may add, you’re breaking news banner so often blocks the bottom half of an image/ event that you are showing It’s really frustrating even with the candle lighting ceremony at the White House that banner was there they actually took it away pretty quickly but that’s not usually the case. Perhaps it could just be a little smaller👍🏻. Thanks for all your great reporting.

    LOTS of notifications, but otherwise pretty good. It's kind of annoying that you can't just watch live TV for longer than 10 minutes and half of it are super long commercials and ads so you really only get 5 minutes if you're lucky unless it's breaking news.

  • Pathetic download times and long commercials Apr 8, 2019

    By Drdrdaddeo
    This App would be great if it was actually designed specially for iPads, instead of strictly for sponsorship profit. The many CNN video snippets generally take 10-15 seconds to download from the internet to the iPad (even with high speed WiFi), then you have to wait for a commercial to slowly completely open up, then you have to endure a boring 13 second commercial....all before you actually get to see the real video. Thus a 30-40 second waste of time to view a 15 second snippet. This App is not optimized for anything other than video viewer annoyance. If I didn’t like and respect CNN so much I would delete it out of frustration. I prefer Apple News as it is much quicker. Wake up CNN......you’re supposed to be the most trusted news network. I trust you should be able to do a better job of optimizing your video management.

  • Feedback for better performance Sep 2, 2018

    By Singindrew
    The app itself is done well. No bugs or glitches that I have come across. The two major complaints I have come from the articles themselves. Many stories are video only which I understand as it being a television network application. But not all of us have the ability to watch a video to get the news. It would be great if there was an actual article along with the video for those of us unable to view. I have found myself leave the app to go to another source to get the story due to not being able to watch the video. The second issue I have is with the “breaking news” alerts that pop up on my phone. I remember when breaking news was important information that needed to break into a regular broadcast to give viewers the information. The amount of breaking news is ridiculous as not everything is that important. Please get back to marking stories as breaking news when they are truly urgent/important and not every time an article gets posted.

    Not working since a few weeks ago. Deleted hoping a new install will help. ... Update Oct 20,2020: the deletion and installation of the current cnn app worked like a charm. No more freezing, hang ups or crashes. Now why did cnn not advise me two weeks ago the app needed an update? Instead, I've lost my saved articles due the reinstall version using an update method. Arrrggggh ..... update Jan 2nd, 2021 For over a month the is again loading slowly or not at all no matter how close to wif. 2/21 ok

    The layout of the app is horrible. You have to scroll forever to even find a news story with all of the ads. And the watch tv function is 50/50 for loading. Unacceptable for a large news organization. I use my web browser to go to the site instead of opening this trash app.

    Shows true colours of media. This app is jammed full of fake articles and click bait links that are surly going to cause problems for any device you're browsing on. You think a major media outlet like CNN would take the time to monitor what is posted on there app.

    I have been using this App since year 2017 , but since 08 September 2020, it has crashed. I tried to use it but no response. I was directed to Update it, but it could not be done via the play store . What's wrong ? Please kindly try and rectify the situation. The app is now functioning properly , with clearer and faster response. Kudos to CNN .

    "You are not authorized to view this content". But...I've been using it fine for months. I logged in and everything. Nope. The app just decides I cant ever use it again. Even restarted my phone. So if this is a news app where I cant watch news even though I should be authorized to watch news...then its not a very good news app, is it?

  • Horrible... Sick of the biased news Sep 9, 2020

    By Liliana
    I'm sick of the biased news like we need more fuel to the covid 19 crisis, or the elections, or the riots?? So a new article says Trump "knew that covid 19 was 'deadly' in February and kept that information from Americans"... First, I'm pretty sure nobody knew the virus would come to America, as far as anyone is concerned NOBODY CARED, nor nobody took the proper precautions to keep it from spreading, they never thought it would come here, they NEVER thought we couldn't handle it. Heck they weren't gods! It's like someone who blames (put-your-favorite-mighty-entity-name-here) is to blame for all their misery. No Republicans don't have all the answers, but if they don't, I'm sure as heck that Democrats don't have them either. Democrats used an injured ARMY veteran to throw dirt on Trump saying he didn't care about them... Until the ARMY veteran stood up to say "that's not what Trump said and stop throwing dirt on Trump using my image and my name!" Those are facts, not opinions. Sadly, CNN is looking everyday more and more based on opinions than facts. Sick of this. Time to check out Epoch times or fox rather.

  • Child abuse Feb 18, 2021

    By cant get thur
    I was raised by Democrat parents in west central Ohio. The fight I see for minority rule of the Republicans my dad was teaching me back in the seventies. Real republicans I have found that you can at least agree to disagree. But the Trump Republicans it’s there way or the highway. So what needs to be done by the true Republicans. The Democratic Party has a left and a right. And the need for the Eisenhower Republicans could not be needed more. The progressives need a side to balance the books as we move forward. Trump conservatives are only for the wealthy because Trump only serves himself. And a wise man (my father) wants told me. It’s surprising how smart I’ll get by the time you turn twenty-one. But it takes a working man with a weak mind to vote the way a rich man votes. Because he has the time and the means to sway everything towards his favor. So if you’re the one on the opposite sides trying to compete for jobs or scholarships it is child abuse.

  • I’m obsessed Jul 21, 2020

    By sebradley29
    I like to consider myself rather independent, so to watch both sides and be unbiased, I downloaded both Fox News and CNN. I was absolutely dismayed at how horrifying the Fox News app was. Not only was it extremely biased and full of Fake News, but the app was so full of ads and pop-ups that I couldn’t get any news without being diverted to another site. My phone crashed 4 times before I finally deleted it. This made me nervous to open CNN, because I figured they were all the same, but boy was I pleased. There were no ads, the site was completely safe and easy to use, and they provided good-quality news. Yes, they are obviously a bit biased, however they were so accurate and provided only the best sources. I was shocked to see such good-quality journalism. And, that Anderson Cooper fellow is quite attractive. He alone made me a Democrat. Ah, if only he was straight!

  • Disappointed in New Version of CNN App! Dec 1, 2017

    By Lady TSB
    I am so displeased with this latest version of the CNN App! The developers have totally stripped away the control and flexibility the user once had. I used to be able to Go Live, click on Schedule and select a show to watch which had previously aired that day. I LOVED that feature and now it’s gone! If for example I missed the airing of The Situation Room which airs at 2:00 pm PST here in Cali, no worries. I knew that I could watch the full show, in its entirety anytime later that same day. I could click to watch any show that had already aired by Judy clicking on it. Now I can no longer watch a show that I missed...How could the developers remove this important feature?! This app is now just a ho-hum app. It is boring and does not offer anything meaningful to the user. I used to watch CNN faithfully on the older app version because it meant so much to me. In my opinion it was the BEST news app out there. Now there is no reason for me to use it. Truly disappointing!

  • Climate change Aug 28, 2020

    By Dcgvhbj
    What is CNN doing about climate change but merely mentioning it? Experts? Documentaries? Travel around the world and inviting people to see, feel, hear it? Where are the interviews with the environmentalists, scientists, activists? Why is the vegan community never invited on to the show? How many of the population are even aware of the fact that animal industrial agriculture is the leading cause of climate change? How many of the CNN interviewers and writers are vegan, and how many are hypocrites not supporting climate change themselves? Do you realize that your media plays a big part in climate havoc and destruction by concealing the facts causing climate change and that even CNN is not a sponsor of quelling the destruction to our planet? Most of the general population cannot see it, feel it, understand it! You are supposed to bring forth the news and education, but invest all of your air time on the “trump show” and unimportant documentaries. Our planet is dying. Thank you, CNN for your contribution to that.

    Love CNN but the app has too many advertisements that you have to sit through. To make matters worse it's the same commercial over and over. Also there isn't that much to choose from in the course of day. I'm usually watching the clips I already saw a day or two ago.

    Needs a way to report typos. This may seem like a silly little thing to complain aboutl. CNN has an appalling number of typos, formatting, and grammar mistakes. I understand they're cranking out news quickly and these things happen. The developers should make a feature like the one in kindle where a user can report issues in a book to the author for review. It would give CNN free proofing services and at the very least give the illusion they care about such things.

  • Love CNN hate the App Dec 12, 2019

    By Dbiii_agent_of_change
    I love cnn and it’s content. The app always freezes, crashes, has a hard time loading, will drop signal and send you to commercials in the middle of a program. Makes you watch adds over and over when trying to regain access to live streams even when it’s the app that is failing. Audio cuts out unexpectedly and randomly. They use to update Inside Politics or State of the Union over the weekend but for a few months now you can no longer access that content except when using an actual television set so the mobile app is limited by comparison. I’ve used this app for years and very often but it’s always been on the struggle bus regardless of “bug fixes” or updates, the core of whatever is wrong continually gets worst. Disappointed by the decline to say the least. I know I can’t be the only one dealing with these issues regularly. *And full transparency I am writing this after over 10 failed attempts and over 20 minutes of waisted time just trying to get the live stream to load.*

    It makes NO sense to send me an alert, AND have the app icon show there's an alert, and not be able to tap the app icon and go to the alert message - and have the alert on my phone go away. Instead of simply tapping the app icon and going directly to the news item you are alerting me about I have to drag down my screen, scroll through all my alerts, find yours, then tap that alert to go see it. If I have to manage your alerts, your app is not that useful to me. There are plenty of alternatives.
