Pathetic download times and long commercials
This App would be great if it was actually designed specially for iPads, instead of strictly for sponsorship profit. The many CNN video snippets generally take 10-15 seconds to download from the internet to the iPad (even with high speed WiFi), then you have to wait for a commercial to slowly completely open up, then you have to endure a boring 13 second commercial....all before you actually get to see the real video. Thus a 30-40 second waste of time to view a 15 second snippet. This App is not optimized for anything other than video viewer annoyance. If I didn’t like and respect CNN so much I would delete it out of frustration. I prefer Apple News as it is much quicker. Wake up CNN......you’re supposed to be the most trusted news network. I trust you should be able to do a better job of optimizing your video management.
Feedback for better performance
The app itself is done well. No bugs or glitches that I have come across.
The two major complaints I have come from the articles themselves. Many stories are video only which I understand as it being a television network application. But not all of us have the ability to watch a video to get the news. It would be great if there was an actual article along with the video for those of us unable to view. I have found myself leave the app to go to another source to get the story due to not being able to watch the video.
The second issue I have is with the “breaking news” alerts that pop up on my phone. I remember when breaking news was important information that needed to break into a regular broadcast to give viewers the information. The amount of breaking news is ridiculous as not everything is that important. Please get back to marking stories as breaking news when they are truly urgent/important and not every time an article gets posted.
Disappointed in New Version of CNN App!
I am so displeased with this latest version of the CNN App! The developers have totally stripped away the control and flexibility the user once had. I used to be able to Go Live, click on Schedule and select a show to watch which had previously aired that day. I LOVED that feature and now it’s gone! If for example I missed the airing of The Situation Room which airs at 2:00 pm PST here in Cali, no worries. I knew that I could watch the full show, in its entirety anytime later that same day. I could click to watch any show that had already aired by Judy clicking on it. Now I can no longer watch a show that I missed...How could the developers remove this important feature?!
This app is now just a ho-hum app. It is boring and does not offer anything meaningful to the user. I used to watch CNN faithfully on the older app version because it meant so much to me. In my opinion it was the BEST news app out there. Now there is no reason for me to use it. Truly disappointing!
