Leftist, liberal, one-sided, snowflake website
Somehow getting worse 1/5
CNN no longer appears to be making any effort to be unbiased or present multiple sides of important stories. At this point it is nothing more than a promotional arm of the Democratic Party. Look elsewhere if you seek anything other than a liberal echo chamber. Truly awful reporting.
Horrible Notifications 1/5
I've had this app for a long time and I have noticed that when Trump became president, all of the notifications became negative towards him. It's obvious CNN is 100% against our president. I am deleting this app and looking for news that is fair.
Update is a fail 1/5
This last update/design change is a complete fail.
1) Navigation is much harder:
- no longer quickly scroll down thru headlines
- can't swipe right and left between news sections
2) Where did all the content go?!? There used to be sections with news on each region of the world plus travel and sports and tech and business and on and on... All gone now. Only can get top news, US politics (I am in the International Edition mind you) and a few other categories.
Please go back to old version!
Fake News at its Finest🙈🙉🙊 1/5
The anti-Trump rhetoric is out of control. It's not even news anymore...just opinion. I'm deleting app today.
Fake news 1/5
Deleted app. Only promote fake news that they want you hear, does not tell the complete story. Can not set weather to my current location only shows Washington, D.C. Again only shows what they want you to see
Crashes on Apple Watch all the time. 1/5
The app crashes on Apple Watch all the time. So, it's very frustrating.
The absolute worst app 1/5
Nevermind the content, this is the worst app. Constant barrage of notifications, even when you opt out completely, it STILL sends updates, which wastes your data.. I was charged an extra $30 one month in data gigs which I finally realized is due to this stupid app. Avoid avoid avoid.
Very poor quality control in releasing new app 2/5
I like the CNN app but the new version has a lot of problems. Video-only stories don't open up to full screen, and (only sometimes) the video clip and the 15 second ad start together--I hear audio from both and the video starts 15 seconds late. I really miss the ability to page through the news items instead of returning to the home screen after each. The home page has so many fewer items than in the older version, it makes me wonder what I'm missing.
Closed caption 3/5
Closed caption will not turn off. No matter what you do.
No casting ability for this app????????
Horrible change 1/5
I really dislike the latest change. I can only look at what CNN thinks is top. It takes longer to scroll down to see what my options are. I can't do a search for what I'm waiting to look at. CNN please change it back.
New update is awful 1/5
By S. 711.
I loved scrolling through the CNN app and reading news stories but this new update is awful. It limits access to different kinds of news stories and is not user friendly at all. Please bring back the old format.
Videos don't load half the time. I get black screens where I have to kill the app. Just terrible. The old version worked great.
update breaks watch complication 2/5
used to love the watch complication, the most recent update seemed to break it. Boo.
If possible-Zero stars 1/5
Lets simply ignore the biased and opinionated content- all notifications are light years behind their other competitors, the articles seem to be unchecked due to numeremos spelling errors, and the overall layout seems to be that of a startup... Do better CNN.
Bombarded by irrelevant or fake news 1/5
This app keeps bombarding my Notification Center with fake news...
Had to uninstall to stop the madness.
Live TV 3/5
I primarily use the app to watch live TV in the mornings. Since the upgrade, I have experienced increased instances of freezing and crashes during streaming. Sometimes it picks back up, other times I have to restart.
Also, please let your content people know that it's annoying to play the same commercials over and over and over and many times back to back. I'd rather the screen go blank while waiting during the commercial break.
Horrible Performance and never ending propaganda pushes via the banners 1/5
Today I just removed this pile of garbage. Not only does the performance stink, along with the massive amount of bandwidth it uses, but content is a joke. It used to be that only emergency or really key news was pushed in banners/alerts. Now it's just propaganda pushing one opinion. What was once a fairly mainstream and middle of the road reporting has now turned so far left that all they can say is "Russia". Here's some facts for you. If you don't want to become the next MSNBC, be fair and be in the middle. I can no longer trust the opinions as fact on CNN. Your glory days of being the one source people turned to in time of news need is gone. I'm done and after looking at reviews it looks like most others are too. Go back to real reporting. This last alert I received about some "official" saying Trump collided with Russia has done it. That's not an emergency or something that should be sent via alert. It's propaganda pushed by a far left news source and some made up "official" that doesn't exist.
Worst Update Ever 1/5
Please fix this app. Everything is terrible.
Fake news 1/5
A majority of the main stories reported by this app are for entertainment purposes rather than informative
What the hell, CNN? Your new version of this app is TERRIBLE. I am given only a list of articles you want me to see. There is no easy-to-maneuver choices of what I want to see. So sorry to look at this upgrade. Your TV presence is good, but this? Really disappointing.
MSNBC Wannabe 1/5
I NEVER would have imagined that CNN would turn completely LEFT. Impartial NO. Deleted App YES. Watch on cable NEVER MORE. audios MSNBC 2.
Does CNN want us to watch less of them? 1/5
This app seems to be based around that idea. If you have the previous version my advice is don't upgrade until they work out some serious bugs. It continually times out after 30 minutes saying the free preview has expired you must login. This is after already logging in with a paid account from my cable provider. That is now a daily experience when before that used to happen about once a month. The live TV does not always load when you click on it or is very slow to do so. Love CNN but not this app. It makes me want to watch Fox which I would rather drive off a cliff than do.
We lost our feed again!! Wow! 1/5
Why are you cutting off what people are saying, you say we lost our feed whenever you can't get people to say what you want them to say. Are you paying your bills. I mean someone should get fired, this happens at least once every two days. Why? Afraid the truth will get out? Fake news all day long!!
Bad app. Bad reporting 1/5
App is very difficult to use and it seems CNN no longer engages in honest reporting. Deleting.
I hate this update 1/5
The categories are gone. Now there is no way to choose what category I'd like to read about, be it world news, entertainment, US news, politics, etc. I have to scroll through a few measly selections to pick out (hopefully) one article I'd like to know more about.
Although, for the past few months, some categories had not been updated for weeks at a time, anyway.
Not to mention, I want to READ the news, not watch a video, since having volume on is not an option in many situations.
Just more and more disappointed with each update, CNN.
Crashes & Negative News (CNN) 1/5
I sometimes like to check the negative fake news, but the App continually crashes!
Still crashing and really fake news!
CNN you're fake news 1/5
CNN you're Fake News
CNN Your Business Is Communications!!! 1/5
What a mistake! I've used (I'm guessing an older version) CNN for many, many months now. Things were working fine. Just wanted to update.
I prefer to read (rather than listen to) my news. Now, I can no longer do so! CNN your business is communication!!!!! What about communications don't you understand?
⭐️fake news 1/5
CLINTON NEWS NETWORK
Best Fake News Ever ❤ 5/5
If it wasn't for CNN (app) we the people wouldn't know what's going on in the world today. #DumpTrump
The good, the bad and the ugly 1/5
By Bongy Bo
The good: it seems to load faster than before, at least on my device.
The bad: interface just merges stories and written content seems minimal now.
The ugly: video loads and seem hard to turn off, hard to navigate back to useful content.
So frustrating, I've almost stopped using it.
No cable No Live CNN 1/5
Can't watch the "Live CNN" news unless I sign in with a cable provider, I don't have cable. So I guess I'm out of luck?!.. well that's why I downloaded the App. Just Ridiculous.
Love CNN, but streaming is broken 1/5
By Ryze N Teemo
Ads load just fine, but the news clips do not. I've tried LTE and wifi with no luck. Should release this stuff without proper testing.
Really bad update! 1/5
This app is so bad it isn't even useable since the update. We are not children we don't need a picture with every news story. Your live feature needs some work, sometimes you have to close the app and go back into it to use it. You need to go back to the old version and scrap this one and start over. 👎👎👎

Buggy freezes too much
Horrible Update 1/5
By National Web Network
21 March 2017: CNN-Go was bumpy enough — but, the recently updated CNN iPhone app is actually totally useless as of this past week. I've had to watch the glitch-free MSNBC iPhone app instead.
Where the hell is the LIVE CNN broadcast feed? It's gone — literally. This should be the very first navigation element you see.
As of yesterday there's zero indication that the CNN LIVE streaming exists anymore — nor any navigation tool to that key feature — the only reason for the iPhone CNN app is to watch the LIVE news broadcast.
FYI: Verizon is our home cable/WiFi service provider so we have total access to the LIVE content — wherever it is.
There are now two new "sections" offered in this redesigned CNN app — both are basically the same with "news clips" that are old and useless after an hour — but many remain for days.
(1.) The new "Top News" area contains video segment clips of recent news stories. Most are not up to the hour updated and a vast number of clips are days old — or more — literally 100% useless; fire whoever came up with this concept.
(2.) A second section called "Watch Now" also contains repackaged video clips (many are more than days old) that are organized into People magazine categories such as:
Best of CNN
"Mostly Human" (no joke)
and Featured Shows
* Do you notice what's obviously missing from the above navigation table?
Early on in this redesign, buried in the Watch Now section, were icons to watch CNN's LIVE stream or that of CNN International — the link icons disappeared since last week.
In the old CNN-Go app it was stupid enough having to navigate to the LIVE broadcast — now it can't be found.
I never thought MSNBC would have a mega superior iPhone app than CNN — but it sure does now by light years.
If there's a glitch — we'll, it better be fixed in a week or I'm removing CNN from my iPhone.
Oh, and they need to remove the little red dot with "LIVE" at the bottom left of the screen when the LIVE feed broadcast is available — it's not needed nor wanted. CNN already clutters its screen with too many bars, boxes, split screens and crawls.
Major Disappointme 1/5
I've read CNN for many years. Now CNN no longer works on an iphone 2 versions old, AND IOS 7. I'm not buying a new iPhone just for CNN. CNN content was getting quite tiresome lately anyway, focusing solely on Trumps incompetence. And I hate the new CNN money stream app, which used to be a favorite but now is scrambled more than my eggs and very difficult to browse. Good bye forever CNN.
CNN Live Down 1/5
A week ago I would have given the app 5 stars. I primarily use the app for CNN Live streaming. I could connect it to my tv service and watch away, however that is not an option now. I hope they fix this issue soon, otherwise I'll have to look for another news service with live streaming. Also, the headlines for the articles can at times be misleading. A headline caught my eye the other day and I started reading it and mid sentence changed to a completely different topic and headline. PLEASE FIX!!
Love CNN, HATE this App update, UNUSABLE 1/5
I've never written a review for anything online but I felt the only way I could vent my frustration with the horrible redesign update was to write this review. CNN, I love your channel but hate this app. Please fix, it is Unusable in its current state. Is there a way to rate something 0 stars?
App Update 1/5
Don't bother downloading until a new version is released. I used the previous version of the CNN app for years and loved it. Definitely missed the mark this time.
Bad app 1/5
Buggy and hard to navigate
Negative 5 Stars 1/5
By Not A 40%er...
You're the reason we can't have nice things. You're the reason people use bit torrents. Your commercials are too long. Your commercials repeat during the same break.
Why is so difficult to watch content anymore, specifically live content!
Update Unusable 1/5
Upgrade made the app Unusable. Loved the app in the past.
AMAZING APP!!! 1/5
Simply splendid. Well done CNN on producing one of the best pieces of garbage in the App Store.
Any video links clicked on start with a wonderful 15 second ad, following by NO VIDEO! I've uninstalled your app now, as I can find better uses for the free space I now have on my phone. Plus, I've grown tired of listening to fake news.
Horrible App 1/5
They don't even have the "World" section anymore in this app. All they want is badmouth about Trump the whole time!
Fix it! Please 1/5
All of those said before me...
