Best news channel, good app

CNN brings objective and reliable news. Not only for the US but also the rest of the world. No political bias like other news channels. The app is working well and news refreshed frequently.

Too crashy and too many ads

For a news org as large and well respected as CNN this is one crashy freaking app. I regularly have to close the app because it freezes and does nothing. Perhaps it’s not tablet compatible? And the content on the Politics tab is far too much, it goes on forever and I do believe is the reason for the app’s constant crashes. And the ads, yikes. I just tried to watch the Don’t Miss Videos section and every darn video had an ad, even though some of the videos were less than a minute long. Please improve this app!

Good app but...

Whenever I scroll through an article on my phone & my finger brushes past an embedded link it takes me out of the app to a different article. I swear this happens 4 or 5 times while Im trying to read, & its frustrating. Disruptive, and not in a good way.

Not sure what you’ve changed in the last few months but it never used to do this (its not me, my finger, or the way I scroll by the way). No other app/news site does this either. Please fix!
