The independent reviews team spends countless hours putting everything through the ringer so you don’t have to! If it has an “on” button, odds are CNET reviews it.

- SEARCH ANY PRODUCT: If the best lists don’t have it, CNET’s search definitely does. It’s anchored by the largest tech product review catalog in the world. If that’s not enough, how about lightning-fast autosuggestions powered by natural language processing (NLP), artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). Fancy tech words FTW! OMGLOLBBQ!

- IN-DEPTH REVIEWS: Need to know more than the highlights? No problem. CNET’s high-quality reviews are done with hours of research and testing, and our reviews provide you with all that data and analysis, along with clear recommendations with our signature “Good, Bad, and Bottom Line” and rating summary. CNET saves you time and money by helping you find the right product quickly.
- FAST-TRACK PURCHASE: You’ve read the review, compared it against a few others, and you’re ready to buy - nice. You’re a tap away from buying it, and at the best price.

I have revised my review from awful to great. They fixed the app so it now runs well on my iPhone and iPad. I enjoy reading the tech news and the occasional great deal offered on tech devices.
Update. I still enjoy the app but find it very annoying to use. At some update it was changed so it continues to load data and updates even after you are browsing the articles. The screen hardly ever stops moving. Articles jump from column to column and pages shift up and down. Everything jumps and you have to scroll around to find where you were before it jumped. Hate that. Screen should lock until I ask for it to update. This is on my iPad Pro.

Fun and informative

With this latest update I can read without accidentally clicking on a hyperlink in the article. It was a little irritating to be reading an article and then mid swipe be switched to a different article. I like the ability to switch between newest articles, or specific groups. While it is about technology news, once in a while there will be the random article that doesn’t quite fit until you realize that it involved some piece of tech being used in a strange way.

Thanks for the 5 star review!

AutoPlaying Videos are Frustrating

The look and feel of the app is the best; You got it down to be really fluid. My only gripe (there will always be a gripe) is that videos AutoPlay too often. It’s repetitive when the same video is posted on the a different article. I wish if the app recognized through our profiles that we have already encountered that video 2x in the same week. For example, this issue is especially prevalent with articles about 5G updates and videos tagged with 5G. That Detroit Automotive Show? I’d encounter the same video in some cases even though one article focused on GM and the other on Kia.

Thanks for your feedback - we definitely have comments on the roadmap, and hope to get it in soon for you!
