I just deleted it.

Wont load in landscape. iPad Pro on pro keyboard is no fun to navigate sideways. I just read short notifications and ignore. The app.

a terrible and lousy design - ads handling and no landscape mode

Welcome back to 5 years ago in terms of ease of use:

Ads will disrupt the flow of reading an article by randomly resetting to the top of the article or scrolling you up or down by a few screen pages.

on a tablet it will never display in landscape mode.

CNA has managed to create its latest app as a “dinosaur” version which I hope will become extinct very soon for mankind’s benefit and well-being.

It is sad to see such a failed upgrade in this day and age.

Surely beta testing should have avoided this.

Someone in their IT/digital department should be called to account over this.

Disappointed as CNA content is one that I enjoy but find myself reading less and less as it is too painful a digital experience on both ipad and iphone.

Awful new design

Classic case of fixing something that ain’t broke. New app feels like a cheap website with clickbait ads. Bring back the old interface! That was clean, crisp and easy to navigate. The new app doesn’t always load properly and I have to restart it. New font is thin, difficult to read unless you turn on dark mode. Ads are now bigger and more intrusive. The only plus point is the availability of dark mode.
