The new app is much better. It loads faster now and the categories page is now on the top line making it quicker and easier to switch.
Two requests. I would like to be able to order the categories to my liking. In my case I would move Opinion after Business as the rest I rarely if ever view.
Second. It is good to have links underlined within a story to obtain more relevant or background info on it but it is all too easy to tap on one in error when scrolling down the main story. It is quite irritating. Perhaps modify it to require a double tap to open the link would eliminate or at least reduce the probability of opening it when scrolling down.
Otherwise much improved. Thanks

Good at news but technically a disaster

I have enjoyed using CNN app for years but in recent weeks it frequently opens with a black screen which can last for minutes. It is taking many minutes to update. It constantly tells me my network is not working - but I check and my network is fine and other news apps updating instantly. I have deleted app and re-installed but the problem continues. Maybe Trump supporters are hacking your app? Sadly, if that’s the case it’s worked - I have deleted your app.
