It is tooooooo slowwwwww 1/5
I used to love reading the news on CNN, now it just wastes my time. It takes too long to load, and then most the time you can't load the stories. I like CNN, but I have been reading FOX news because it loads faster! CNN app on iphone has digressed. Go back to the basic app. It was much better
Stopped working 1/5
Worked perfect for about a year, and then suddenly without warning the sound just stopped working. The sound works on every other one of my news apps (BBC works perfectly) so I know it's not my phone or my settings. I've tried everything, reloading the app, and have checked all the app settings, and nothing works. Oh well, it looks like BBC is my main news source from now on. You've lost a viewer CNN.
Stop feeding the monster 1/5
I stopped buying from those that advertise with CNN as they feed the flames of bias and hate. Those that fund them are accomplices in the division of our country.
Great app 5/5
By Raghav pathak
I depend on it.
STAY STRONG WE NEED YOU. 5/5
CNN is my go-to app for news. 5/5
Prior to my morning coffee, I read the CNN.
I rely on the writers and can feel certain about the facts. Thank you for the news.
Fake News 1/5
Good source 5/5
By MR. NIBBS
A good app to rely on today's daily news!
Most terrible news app available 1/5
Although the news content is good, the app is the absolute biggest mess I have ever seen in a news app. It's very difficult to select a topic, since the whole screen is jumping and moving. It is even difficult to see the topics. All you can see is jumping, moving, photos and videos. A kid of 3 can build a better app then this. There is hope though for CNN, it cannot get worse then this app... besides that, it crashes every minute. A complete un-useable app!
This is using the app on an iPad pro.
By Stuart of florida
Love the up to date alerts and accuracy of their reporting. They don't back down to anyone in getting us the news.
BBC and CNN are my go to news feeds.
Come on CNN, you can do better 1/5
CNN has been my go to source for global breaking news for quite a while. But the app loads so slowly its not breaking news anymore by the time the articles have loaded. Forget video. Sure I'm in Indonesia and network speed is up and down, but everything else seems to be working ok. Come on CNN, pls fix the speed issue or I'll just have to check on Twitter instead.
OK App, Chromecast Not Available 3/5
Apple TV compatibility is great, but CNN should look to making the app compatible with chromecast from all devices, not just a laptop or android device. If I'm having to turnon my laptop just to cast CNN to my tv, chances are I'll just stream NBC, CBS, or ABC news instead since their apps can chromecast from my iPhone. Annoying ads should left out or for live tv only; I skip the video stories constantly because of the long ads.
I little confusing 3/5
By LuLu 02116
In attempting to find a live broadcast or choose the latest airing of a show, the channel and show choices make this cumbersome and overly dense.
If I wished to see the last airing of Anderson 360 I have to go through so many chooses o loose interest. Many clips, teasers, show plugs.. I want straight links to relevant feeds. Otherwise ok. Too much of an add than an app
I can rely on CNN for most up to date and latest news. 👍🏾
I love CNN, but this is too buggy 1/5
I love CNN and I've used CNN's App for a long time. I always loved being able to watch live. HOWEVER, trying to watch live on the new App is incredibly painful. The App crashes a lot, especially when signing in. Sorry, but Watch Live is probably the feature I used the most, but the time necessary to make it work if probably as much time as the time needed for me to be back home and watch it on the TV instead... too bad.
Would pay for an ad free version...
Audio Gone! 1/5
Tried it all - reset my iPhone...deleted the ap and reinstalled it...NO AUDIO, video works fine. Audio works on all other apps. Please fix.
Laggy and Ad Riddled 1/5
Disappointed in the app design and the amount of intrusive ads. Seems there are a lot of bogus reviews here as well falsely propping this horrible app.
No audio 1/5
By Don’s friend
I am on an iPhone 6s--video is fine but no audio--pls fix
Weak, sensationalist reporting; app recently improved 1/5
By In the Nati
I've historically had problems with this app not loading or loading slowly or even crashing. Recently those issues appear to have been fixed. (5/2017 UPDATE: MUCH WORSE. IT TAKES 1-2 MINUTES FOR ANY CONTENT TO LOAD. OFTEN WHEN YOU CLICK ON A HEADLINE, IT OPENS A STORY WITH A DIFFERENT HEADLINE - SOMETIMES AN OLDER VERSION OF THE SAME ARTICLE AND SOMETIMES A TOTALLY DIFFERENT ARTICLE. OFTEN I JUST GIVE UP AND GO READ THE NEWS ON ANOTHER APP.) Now please fix the content! CNN sensationalizes the news and separates every story they think will draw ratings into 10 separate stories, each with a headline focusing on one tiny element of the same story. What Clinton or Trump had for breakfast gets 10 separate headline articles, but serious world news gets buried below all of those in single articles. Better would be to have one main article, and if they want to have separate sub-articles, make those links to click once you get to the main article. Also, stop disguising those stupid Big Story fluff videos as news articles. And I hate those articles that are videos of scientific discoveries where they just show a few sentences of text superimposed over a video of still photos - the text hides the images and they give you almost zero facts. Still, though, a good source to find the latest info on breaking news stories.
Please fix sound on videos
Watching CNN since the 1990s 5/5
By Rita Husmann
As an International flight attendant who flew extensively to Hong Kong and many other Asian countries .....CNN was often our only source of Any English TV channels ... and then of course we heard the same news every hour ...but that did not bother us ....! So many times we would come to our rooms ... turn on CNN and then wake up at 3:00 am ... yep .... TV still on....!
Retired in 1999 from flying .... PS .... still falling asleep many nights with CNN and awakening at 3:00 am and that awesome SECURING SOUND .... this is CNN Breaking News ..... How Sweet it IS
LOVE YOU CNN

CNN is fake news 1/5
By A guy whose opinion matters
These people live to divide the citizens of the united States. CNN is fake news
Love it 5/5
Keeps me on top of the news. Love the video and live news option.
Unstable app, bad interface 2/5
Application crashes, interface reloads when you look at a story or story gets replaced by irrelevant content. Very, very bad experience.
Sound doesn't work 1/5
Please fix this asap! Live tv is pretty useless if you cant listen to it..
The USA News 5/5
Timely and accurate information
Audio problems over 50% of the time 2/5
This app is great when it works. More than half of the time there is no audio.
Love it! 5/5
Great way to keep yourself informed!!!
Love it 4/5
Love the app, and CNN. Only reason for 4 star is sometime when I'm reading an article an ad or something.makes the page "jump" periodically and makes it hard to read...
Great App but the news is fake. 1/5
The app itself is great but the news does tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
Depend on CNN 5/5
I watch CNN on the Sling app. I cut the cable several years ago and was very excited to learn that I could stream networks, especially CNN, thru Roku.
By U.S. Navy Vet 🇺🇸
Agree with other 1 star reviews. App constantly crashes and no volume on video. Are the 4 star reviews robot reviews because I find it hard to believe anyone enjoys this app.
CNN is great! 5/5
By Pee Sure Man
Love the easy use and read of the articles! The news is useful and doesn't seem too biased one way or another.
Very slow to load stories 2/5
By Bryan in Indiana
If you want to experience the days of a dial-up internet connection, this is what the new version feels like. Stories take so long to load you keep thinking your phone is locked up.
CNN APP 4/5
Thanks! I love the app. It makes life easier to move around and enjoy CNN anywhere.
Easy access to the Cirque de Sole of news outlets. 2/5
I love seeing the liberal bias and slant. Very entertaining to see the contortionists twist and bend a premise around the facts and offer it as a new conclusion. Many articles written in such a manner proves that their writers are well practiced in political yoga.
Still Sh***y After All These V.s 1/5
It used to be the live stream would play but without audio. Now it doesn't play. After not playing, it crashes. Excellent work CNN peeps!
Love app 5/5
I love being able to quickly look at what is important in the world. Especially being able to check "what did Trump go today".
Current, Balanced, Honest...period! 5/5
Only real source of news left.
Real News 5/5
By Lovin Pin
CNN informs the public what is really happening in our country and world. They are the REAL news!
Love the app and CNN! 5/5
By Trainer Sheryl
Great App for the news 5/5
By idaho pete
I prefer CNN over the other mobile news apps.
Great app 5/5
Love the fast access to real, independent news!
It's garbage 1/5
By Buz wuz
They need to report news that is actually real instead of making up crap that isn't even real. That they made up. They need to report the honest truth positive or negative
Please offer chromecast support!!
Takes 2-3 minutes to load?!? 2/5
By Dermot McDermott
I like CNN just fine. No quibble with the editorial content, which has nothing to do with the app anyway. I liked to put it on and fall asleep listening. My biggest gripe was that it played the same promos over and over every commercial break.
Now it's a mess. This app takes a LONG time to load, to the point where I'm about to give up and put on MSNBC. I have an iPhone 7 with good wifi and 3GB of storage space available. I guess the slowness is because every story has an accompanying full-motion video which loads on the front page. Ever since the last couple of updates, it's been like this.
Take a lesson from Google. Keep your front page simple and quick. I'm switching over to the "Reader View" in the hope that it loads faster. Stop complicating things!!! It just makes it annoying.
FAKE NEWS 😂 1/5
CNN is a joke
Still no sound 1/5
With the newest update not only do I still not have sound but now the closed captioning won't work when turned on. Guess it time to delete
Great updat 5/5
Now this becomes greater and greater thank you for your service
