Problem with the new app. 1/5
By Golf clubs
I used to check the news several times a day, to be constantly up dated. Now since being forced to change to the new CNN layout I can not read the light print captions beneath the stories. Also I liked having a lead story bold and upfront. I am greatly disappointed with the new layout so much so that I am now here looking to see if there is someway to go back to the old app or looking to see if there is a better option for getting the news. Please if nothing else make the print more readable.
The lay-out of “new” CNN” app is ugly and brash. It has the appearance and the sense of cheap buzzfeed type app. Opening you get a few big squares intermingled with equally big ads.
I long for the old format, concise news lines, lots of choices and efficient movement around the app. The new app feels limited in scope. Very poor.
App is terrible 1/5
The previous app was fine the new app is junk

The meme war continues
My connection to the world 5/5
CNN is the news that keeps me informed about world news. Opinions aside just facts.
This revised app is awful. Hard to navigate and is not user-friendly. Bring back the old one which was far superior. The visual layout is terrible and whoever redesign this goofed. Hard to read and the photos are no longer sharp.
CNN app 4/5
Text too small & not enough news.
CNN is the Apple 5/5
CNN is the “Only truthful news”—CNN has great reporters.
As Fox News remains unbalanced and untruthful
New app. 1/5
By 15000 owner
This app is terrible. Should have left the old app alone.
This app doesn’t work 1/5
Won’t load at all!
Need to support older versions of iOS 1/5
I have an old iPad that cannot upgrade past iOS 9. Now the old app is unusable and is attempting to force an upgrade that won't load... Please change to continue to support older iOS versions!
Fake news? I don’t think so! 5/5
The truth always hurts.... thanks for keeping them honest CNN.
Great App 5/5
This is great and very helpful

Ugly GUI, uniform & dull. 1/5
The old version was much, much better. It looked like a newspaper. This?...looks like those RELATED ARTICLES links/thumbnail images at the bottom of online news pages. It’s terrible.
Rating for App, not the stories 1/5
Your new look makes it nearly impossible for me to read the titles of the stories. Please bold the titles or allow my iPad to make the text bold. Boring display now with stories.
Best quick news 5/5
CNN always has the best news capsules. Easy to read and understand . Easy to access Always has a broad mix of hard news and softer news & human interest stories.When needed goes deeper and gives more hard fact based info.My #1 internet news sources .
By Starving for the truth
CNN used to be more neutral. not any more. you now turn even a good thing negative if it might favor a Republican. Cooper and Lemon you are both obviously biased. i take what you say with a grain of salt because i know it is going to be very slanted to make the Republican party look bad. come on report the news and let the people have their own openion.
Keep pushing 5/5
By disabled. vet
Keep telling the true story, keep shining the light on lies trump tells, DON’T give in
Don’t like the ads 4/5
Love the articles but hate the ads
Love it! 5/5
By Dr F 85
Quick, up to date, synopsis of the days’ events. You can get updated in just a few minutes— love it!!!!!!
Good source of news but too many commercials to watch before getting to the news. Other than that i love CNN!
By iPhone Game Lover
I don’t know who design this app but I really hate the color scheme. It makes me dizzy and nauseous. I like Bloomberg News app better but they keep on crashing so I can’t recommend them either.
By YIF 435
I was having a little problem with CNN but now it’s the App that I go to first in the morning. I think that you cover the most important news stories every day.
Font problems 1/5
The new app will not let you increase the font size, therefore I can't read the stories! Please fix it or I will have to scan get news feeds where the font can increase!
Cnn is fake news 1/5
By Derreck ippel
CNN more like fake biased news network all about trump One star CNN Go to hell
Quite Comical 5/5
By Unvarnished Truth!
I’ve read a handful of reviews that accuse CNN of reporting fake news and of becoming a news source that does nothing but bash Trump! One of the reviewers went as far to compare CNN to Fox News. He claimed that Fox News was accurate, unbiased news reporting and that he could count on Fox for the truth! He went on to describe CNN as nothing more than a propaganda machine against Republicans and their leader ...
Now that’s down right funny! These guys missed their calling. They should have been comedians!
CNN may very well lean to the left, but don’t fault them for reporting truth about Trump. Sometimes the truth is ugly. It is all too often with our current political landscape.
Fox may very well lean to the right ... but don’t praise them for being unbiased. To refer to them as unbiased is absurd. At the very least be fair in your comparison. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander .. look who’s calling the kettle black ... people in glass houses blah blah blah! You get the point!
Real News 5/5
Great App. Video looks great runs smooth. Receive alerts on breaking news. CNN has real news not Fake News, they check there facts. If they make a mistake they admit it.
Review of app CNN 5/5
By Active Gram
Excellent coverage. When wanting to have a quick update of current news, one can count on CNN.
Quick digest of events taking place.Thanks.
Became extremely biased and not impartial 1/5
Used to be a CNN viewer, but every time I got more and more news alert about Trump. It became a biased network, and not the balanced news channel I used to watch. Never again watch CNN. Also I am extremely dissatisfied by the fact that I never see a positive coverage of our president.
Needs more user options 2/5
Can barely read the text since the font is so small and can't be changed. The app needs options to increase font size and to embolden text to make the articles readable. A lot of the links go to the wrong article.
Bad app 1/5
I will focus on the app and not politics, as I wish for this app to be better. First, why doesn't the subject line fill in with the title of the article when I forward an article in email? Every other app does this, and when I was forced to upgrade to this app, I thought it would have been addressed, but not.
I do not like the new format - especially the way a video/gif will be playing as I scroll. There are things I do not wish to see, quit forcing me to view scenes I have no interest in or do not wish to view over my morning coffee. Let me decide.
Commercials before every clip is tedious to say the least. Again, pushing content can get in the way of trying to stay informed, as it leads me to just closing it and not viewing the video clip.
And, this one is new as well, is that when I am listening to music and I launch the app it causes the audio output to stop playing music. I quit the app, and all is well. I start it back up and the music stops. I should have the choice of what I listen to while reading the news. I have found using a browser is a better experience.
New update is terrible 2/5
The new update to the app puts every story in the same sized square, and usually the entire headline does’t even fit in the box, so it’s unclear what the story is about. Visually uninteresting and functionally flawed.
Giant picture boxes and refi ads 1/5
Editorial-bend concerns aside, from a pure design and usability perspective - the old app used to be an easy way to check in and scroll through the latest news on a regular basis.
The new app features giant picture boxes with ads intermixed that attempt to mimic the news stories (every few boxes). I don’t need to refinance. Why are you asking me every time I come to your app (Big data - not)? Go back to the old design.
Reuters, AP, and BBC are much better apps to follow news on a mobile device.
Love It 5/5
By St. Joseph, mi
Use the app multiple times a day, mostly while on the train en route to work. In my opinion, it's the best, most accurate unbiased news source for a free app.
LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE IT !!!!!!!!!!! 5/5
The best in news that’s honest even when it’s for the other side! They give everyone a chance to speak their mind whether you like it or not and it only fair!
Love all the journalists!
Garbage app 1/5
App shuts off music even without using their video.
They use there own words to tell the true
Old one better 3/5
This one doesn’t have as much news but the layout is better.
Hate it! 1/5
Can I please have the old format back? I hate the new CNN app format. All videos and ads. I like to read news throughout the day and videos just don’t work when you’re out and about. I liked the old CNN app format where I could go to sections and read about current news in health, politics, tech, travel, etc. the new format gives you about 20 videos and 20ads and nothing else. Will be looking for another news app for daily use.
I used to love it! 1/5
By Portland Brian
CNN used to be a news app but now it’s more a gossip tabloids. The angry, opinionated, and hateful biased is sickening. I wonder how much the Democratic Party is paying CNN to be the mouthpiece of propaganda. CNN may not know this, but Americans aren’t as blind and stupid as they think to swallow every biased lie they print. Such a shame.
Only the best! 5/5
I love CNN, when I want to know what is going on in the world, I always turn to CNN!
Not fake News 5/5
By Emperador Robert
I had always watched CNN, since I was younger. There is something about their format that I really like. Is on at my house pretty much every day. I love Anderson and new chapters of Anthony B. Keep up the good job and don’t be afraid to report the true, the nightmare will be over soon. Thank you for everything you do.
Two quick 1/5
By Sari no
Ur video clips writings are toooooo quick hard to read
Credibility not found elsewhere 5/5
By Invisible you.
I have come to rely on CNN for fair and balanced reporting which is becoming increasingly rare. While other news sources move toward entertainment and slanted news reporting, CNN continues to strive to get to the real news story. Some may not like the content and describe it as slanted, but CNN is relentless in pursuit of “real” facts, not alt-facts.
Blackmail against a private citizen 1/5
Threatened to dox a private citizen because they made a meme about CNN person apologized CNN proceeded to reserve the right to dox private citizen constantly virtue signals but has no ethical standards whatsoever
New app design is unusable 1/5
By Formerly a happy user
This new design of the app makes it unusable. Slow clunky and hard to navigate. It used to be easy to get an overview of the news available, but not anymore.
Bring in an UX expert and have them redesign it to be usable!
CNN stays on top of daily events going around the world. Definitely an apple, no FAKE news here!
Just want to read news 3/5
I don't like you trying to feed me videos. I like the reading word since most times I am not able to watch a news video since I might be at work or other places where that is not possible. Love your news but for video I'll do it for my TV set
