    Having the ability to get the Top Morning Headlines, Breaking News and updates throughout the day and anywhere is technology that truly serves the individual . In the car, instead of listening to the radio, I click to listen to CNN. I watch it as well or catch up on reading while at the grocery store, when having to wait in line in a variety of places ... even while sometimes walking on the treadmill. It's a great way to stay informed. Thank you CNN.

  2. Catherine Hamel-avatar

    Catherine Hamel


    I LOVE having the opportunity to get CNN on my phone. My only discontent with receiving it with the app is that so many of the updated stories have to be viewed & LISTENED to which is tough for those of us with hearing defificits; as well, when in a waiting or other such room among other people, the news is MUCH more preferable to be read. Thank you!

  3. Tinker Toy II-avatar

    Forget the app, it's bad enough. Read the privacy policy before you agree to it. The information they collect should just be called information molestation. They even mention that they may modify your information to suit their use. What's even worse are the blatant lies that are so prevalent that within any page of text you are almost guaranteed to read something that doesn't have any discernable truth in it and may even be harmful to the reader or targeted subject matter. Worst app and company!

  4. Sam-avatar

    Worked fine until update a few days ago. Now will not close with back button. Uninstalled. Reinstalled. Rebooted. Cleared cache. Cleared data. Still same problem. Apparently you aren't allowed to turn it off anymore. Update: CNN fixed the problem. Pretty efficient. Back to 4.5 stars. Thanks guys

  5. Jebberz-avatar

    Articles and information are great. Videos are often click bait... watch a 30 second ad for a 30 second video slapped together by an intern that barely covers the headline/topic. Sometimes you get segments of actual coverage but often they are moving pictures or text with some royalty free music in the background.

  6. Paul Tracey-avatar

    Knocking down to 2 stars because app not closing gracefully by pressing back button twice after latest update from 3-2 on galaxy S9. Problem happening before, and after One UI v2 and android 10 update. No report from system that app is hanging. Doesn't appear to remain running after closing all apps from task switcher.

  7. Matt Ball-avatar

    This app is awesome! It works far better than any other news app I've tried. Enjoy articles, videos, or CNN Live TV! They even give you the option to hear the iconic, "This is CNN-" when opening the app. Definitely worth the download. 5 stars, no less. Give it a try.

  8. Sharon Carlton-avatar

    The only thing I was sble to watch was the debate. The app would work on my device however In order to watch CNN you have to list your cable company or regular television provider.... I don't have either as I cut my cable and just use a small atenna to get over tha air tv. What this app asks is impossible! Anyone who has a device that works with the app should be able to watch CNN!!!

  9. Jennifer Heeb-avatar

    Why did the news go backwards? And why is the feedback button shut down? Please give us accurate and up to date news! What happened?? Why is my main feed a feed from 3 days ago and nothing from yesterday is now available?? Just 1 citizen, but I have a big voice!

  10. Farzana Patoli-avatar

    Really very good , fantastic , fair and impartially updating the entire world with latest/ breaking news as well imparting knowledgable litrature and events besides very userfriendly website with attractive scrolling and could identifying the required news or available event by any new entrant as well old ones at any time. God bless!

  11. Matt Loach-avatar

    Just updated. Reading/sharing the articles seems to still work as in the past. But cannot get out of the app w/the "back" button like before; have to use the "home" button. Otherwise, you can't leave! :(

  12. Michael Johnson-avatar

    Michael Johnson


    Considering deleting the app. Ads play with audio even though I didn't click the ad. Don't mind the ads but should be my choice about about whether hear the audio or not. Read when I wake in the morning but should not have to disturb my wife who's sleeps an hour or so later than me on weekends.

  13. Rate N'Review-avatar

    Very informative. I like the app's functions and ease of navigation. 5 things to know is a very good feature as well. I like to anchors and their personalities. I love the fact checking editions too. CNN is a great and true news network. I recommend!

  14. shawn cote-avatar

    @Sam. I can no longer close the app either since the latest update.I cleared the app's cache and also I cleared the data. Which neither of them worked. I uninstalled it too, didn't change. I even cleared my cache partion on my phone. Thought maybe something internally was getting hung up. So none of them fixed the problem.

  15. Nicolas Salomon-avatar

    Nicolas Salomon


    Dismal, lots of annoying content. There needs to be significantly more control over the types of content that show up. Don't even know how to express the disgust at some of the pointless articles that show up. The world is huge, I don't need a play by play of a singers life and how they got offended because blah blah blah.

  16. Mohammad Raza-avatar

    Veri nice app. Flawless and smooth. Stories of around the globe appears in seconds here. Because of CNN app, I use to be intensively updated about the news of the world. I have left my dependency on print media and television news mostly. Overall I'm pretty happy.

  17. Chris Kuiper-avatar

    I actually watch the president's press briefings, so when the top three articles on CNN are claiming nonsense that wasn't even talked about in the Press briefing, I realized that CNN really is fake news. This is coming from someone who has the CNN app installed right next to Fox News on my phone so I can see what either of them are yammering about. Well not anymore, I guess I'll replace CNN with the Washington Post. Uninstalled.

  18. Luke Mortensen-avatar

    App is not stable. Constantly have to force close for next article to load. Galaxy S10. Months later, still not fixed. That uninstall button is right next to the force close one. Just sayin. Latest update broke the back button...

  19. Barbara Frear-avatar

    The app is better than the network, not nearly as biased. I like to think of myself as a person who likes to gather as much info as possible before deciding which opinion is more viable, the app allows me that comfort.

  20. annette dorn-avatar

    As soon as I updated my app it would not close out after viewing. I have to co to close all to exit the app. This is why I hate update apps. Fix problems before releasing to people. I'm now waiting for a new update in Hope's of fixing this problem.

  21. No One-avatar

    My videos won't operate in the app anymore; otherwise I'd give it 5 stars. What's the problem here?

  22. bunky arrigo-avatar

    Tapping an article in the notification shade opens the app with an "unknown error".

  23. Michael Abbott-avatar

    I primarily use the app for its push notifications of new news and not the other features.

  24. Lynda Schott-avatar

    Some videos have their captions, and some are not captioned. It's improving. I hope it continues to improving, which means reaching the 90 percent, not staying at 50 percent.

  25. Chris Dutton-avatar

    I dig your content. But your app is garbage. Click on a notification and it takes two minutes to load if it loads at all. Other major market news apps work fine. Get it together.

  26. Jimmy Mccain-avatar

    Total liberal agenda! I'm a registered independent and try to be open minded as much as possible. The bulk of CNN is so oppinionated as opposed to factual these days. If president Trump were to personally find a cure for covid-19, I guarentee CNN would somehow put a negative spin on it. So sad how they have fallen.

  27. Erika Edmondson-avatar

    Erika Edmondson


    Great info and content. Would be better if videos could just play back to back like news app or you tube instead of having to click each story. Hopefully they update this but even the 10 mins free live tv is cool when something's going on.

  28. Shawn Stout-avatar

    Too many ads on 1080p. Eats up all my data before I can see news vids. They really need some lower resolution options. Other than that it's a great app for great news and top stories of the day.

  29. Dan Bish-avatar

    Why won't they let you cast live tv from the browser? And then once you get the app there are multiple ways to watch the same video only one of which is compatible with casting. Very confusing.

  30. Charles Shepherd-avatar

    Charles Shepherd


    My husband and I have watched CNN since it first went on the air in the early eighties. Keep up the good work and your app is handy to.

  31. Metal 100-avatar

    Garbage...nothing but propaganda... They could at least "try" to make their thing seem impartial...but its like they dont care if people suspect their bias... They are 100% the left version of "Fox News" but 2 times worse.

  32. Amy Hill-avatar

    I am not a political person but their articles are all far to politicised! I just want to be able to find out how we are doing as a country in regards to the virus, and there is far to much finger pointing. I give up trying to read though the lines to try to get crumbs of the news from their articles.

  33. John Pagakis-avatar

    Love the CNN App. Although, the latest version will not allow me to exit the app. I wind up having to go into memory and remove it. In all the times I've had the app this is the first problem I've had.

  34. Michael Sanford-avatar

    Michael Sanford


    Terrible. Constantly freezes. Voices not matching video. You can try to hide Biden's cognitive decline but Americans know the truth. Propping up a bad candidate. Tell the truth CNN. Debates should be watched live not hidden to recap with edits later on . You're a joke and that joke is on all America. Cannot post unless you give at least 1star otherwise 0.

  35. Kristen G-avatar

    When I have 5 mins to view the top couple of stories of the day, I will go to the app for its convenience and efficiency. But if you are going to force me to waste most of those 5 minutes watching 15 or 30 sec CNN ads repeated every single time a story has a video, then I'm out. Waste of my time!!!

  36. Kip Buxton-avatar

    It's okay, but occasionally I'll pick one of my news updates and it won't pull up the story, it just opens to the main news feed. If I want to read the story from there, I have to go searching for it.

  37. LJ Mehler-avatar

    I very much appreciate the content, but the app on the Amazon fire TV stick does not work. It doesn't retain my login profile, so I have to login on-screen, almost every time I turn it on!

  38. Ivy Davis-avatar

    I found to be a good app but I find it confusing sometimes and enlightening at the same time so it's one that you have to really want to know what's happening around you straight however.

  39. Ward nair-avatar

    I have gone over all news app for 0ne month and l found the best to be in this order #1 Smart News,#2 Google News,///if you memory to spare and like to play #3 USA Today,#4 Top Buzz ,l hope this help your in your search.

  40. Andrew Rowland-avatar

    App is very buggy. I keep getting 'script has stopped' error messages, so only a portion of the news item loads, and then it freezes. Removing the app.

  41. Harry Hegadoren-avatar

    Harry Hegadoren


    I have internet that is a little slow. All my other news apps work. However this app only tries for about 2 seconds, then says "connection slow try again ". Useless

  42. Yann Nenebi-avatar

    I love the app but unfortunately some titles don't always match the video they are attached to but written content is always on point. Thus written content is always appropriately matched.

  43. Scott Sherman-avatar

    The app will alert me to a breaking story and when I click to open it just hangs. I have to close and reopen in order for the app to load and then I can't locate the story.

  44. Barky Barker-avatar

    All Trump-hating, all the time. This app is almost as unstable as Don Lemon. CNN is infested with Liberal propagandists and is incapable of giving President Trump any credit for accomplishments. Their b*lls!t gets old quickly and I can only stand to watch for about 5 minutes at a time.

  45. Arn Petty-avatar

    Mostly good. I dont have a lot of extra time. The ads cut into the little bit of time that i have so i cant always get all the news i want out of it.

  46. BettyAnn Hegland-avatar

    BettyAnn Hegland


    The new update (March 2) is frustrating as after I visit CNN it will not allow me to return to the desktop screen on my phone. I have to physically shut down my device to exit.

  47. Ashley Desamours-avatar

    Ashley Desamours


    I can't open articles that pop up in my notifications through the app because I get a page that says unknown error. Because of this, I have to open the articles through the web. What an inconvenience.

  48. Kathy Szaj-avatar

    This app crashes at some point *every* time I use it (which is, most days). None of my other apps on my Android phone do this, so it seems that THIS app itself is the problem.

  49. Robert LeBlanc-avatar

    The content is CNN ( great) but there is too many repetitive and long, high volume annoying adds. Enough is enough, I am looking for an alternative.

  50. Zhong-gui Suo-avatar

    Good content. For some reason, on my Samsung Galaxy 20, swiping up from the bottom/right to minimize CNN app does not seem to work. The app remain as full screen.

  51. Kevin Teo-avatar

    white background makes it glaring and hard to read. possible to add an option for black background white text, with an option to toggle automatically eg after 7pm or user adjusted timing.

  52. Great Gandalf-avatar

    Back over the decades, CNN was my goto news source. But over the last 5-6 years they have shifted to a lefted biases and I can't rely on CNN info, especially in light of the current CV-19 situation.

  53. Drew L.-avatar

    love it except it needs a dark mode desperately!!! please!!!

  54. Steven Budke-avatar

    Great app from the standpoint streaming is good and chromecast. WAY too biased content. I had picked cnn hoping for neutral. I'll search elsewhere for objectivity instead of attempted mind control.

  55. Milind Gajarushi-avatar

    Milind Gajarushi


    Video doesn't play keeps buffering even with 16 mbps speed useless waste of time

  56. Tora Harrison-avatar

    Alerts are extremely helpful. I wish I could stream live through the app instead of streaming device, however. My provider is Roku and not an option.

  57. Chantal Desjardins-avatar

    Chantal Desjardins


    Update renders app useless - can't open - says weak connection but my upload speed is 33. 8 mpbs and download is 102 mpbs according to OOKLA. Definitely not a weak internet problem! It a bad app problem.

  58. IKA Twineboah-avatar

    It's nice. Very easy to navigate through the news item. This feedback is for the app, not for the kind of news CNN produces

  59. Larry Macklin-avatar

    App gives "Unknown Error" whether from notification link or instantiation of the app directly. Tried force stop. Tried rebooting tablet. Then tried uninstalling & reinstalling app. Nothing worked. This was on Samsung Galaxy Tab S6.

  60. Larry Mandelberg-avatar

    Larry Mandelberg


    It's a functional app, too slow for me, too busy, typically frustrating for me to find the news I'm looking for in the moment.

  61. Graham French-avatar

    This app contains a lot of video content that I am interested in watching, unfortunately you have to endure the same repetative advert, preceding each video that you watch...annoying.

  62. Douglas Levinson-avatar

    Douglas Levinson


    I always liked this app. A recent update, running on Android 8.0, would not close properly. But the March 6 2020 update resolved that problem.

  63. Jacci Winfield-avatar

    Opens to white screen and then displays "unknown error " try again. Used to be dependable and now is not worth keeping on my phone. Someone really messed up the app

  64. Phil Turner-avatar

    Update makes this unusable. Articles open but behind the scrolling feed. That makes it kind of tough to read. Why wod you "fix" something that was working for years?

  65. Patrick Colgan-avatar

    Great app. An authoritative, independent, informed and intelligent voice on the world media stage. Keep it going!

  66. mr. whiskers-avatar

    The app is broken for weeks. I've uninstalled and reinstalled and installed for weeks with the "unknown error" message. It doesn't load. Please fix it.

  67. Drummernaut Drummernaut-avatar

    Drummernaut Drummernaut


    Will not stay logged in with provider. BBCA is having the same problem. I will check back in a month to see if they can fix it.

  68. Chris Bryant-avatar

    The app is worthless. Notifcations on my phone NEVER load the actual article. I'll open the notification and sit on a white screen until I get an unknown error. Tragic.

  69. Michael Burwen-avatar

    Web site is excellent, but political content often biased. Would prefer straight reporting or at the very least showing both sides of issues.

  70. William LeVeck-avatar

    Latest update disabled the back button when trying to leave/close the App. On Android phones you need to hit the home button to close the App.

  71. skue01-avatar

    WAS an AWESOME app until recently. I keep getting a network error telling me to try again. Reboot, reinstalled, etc. Still doesn't open.

  72. Danielle Hay-avatar

    Not able to close the app by using the back button on my phone anymore. Just started happening with the last update.

  73. Lou Riolo, Jr.-avatar

    Always freezes and crashes. Links don't work at times and videos really are not related to article it is attached with.

  74. Ricky Cook-avatar

    Constant crashes. Pretty bad you can't even follow the live updates about the pandemic without freezing and crashing.

  75. B Mac-avatar

    FAKE NEWS! Absolute garbage. Everything CNN says or reports is liberal agenda and fake news. They are too bent out of shape on hurting Trump to see what's really going on. Would not recommend this app. If you want real news and what's really going on then download the Fox news app. It's much more smooth, user friendly, and real news.

  76. Dawn Frear-avatar

    Wonderful new wonderful news app that you can watch online or offline greatly appreciate it it stay safe and healthy

  77. Pastor Djuna Posey-avatar

    Pastor Djuna Posey


    I've been on the app for about a couple of months. I really enjoy CNN news. Very reliable, so I look forward to my daily updates. Especially with things that are going on now. So far so great ­čĹŹ

  78. CAROLE LA POINTE-avatar



    CNN used to be a great app. Now all I get is either buffering, a blank screen, or error, retry.

  79. Jeffrey Freeman-avatar

    Jeffrey Freeman


    Too many ATT&T Ads - don't get it - very annoying

  80. Andeson Wilburg-avatar

    Andeson Wilburg


    It's a good app and but I would have given it 5 stars because it does not broadcast live video news so that we actually see what's happening presently

  81. Jon Moore-avatar

    Too many notifications that aren't breaking news. Very glitchy. I click on alerts and I'm taken to an unrelated story.

  82. Mark Smith-avatar

    Too many errors and broken links.

  83. john prymmer-avatar

    Great news app very informative on a world and country basis. Being an American living in Australia it helps keep me in touch with what is happening back home

  84. Tim Kline-avatar

    New version cannot be exited with the back button. Very annoying. Other than that, I like the app.

  85. Norm Murray-avatar

    This app on my android constantly crashes and headlines are often misleading . Deleting this app from my phone and tablet once and for all.

  86. Heather Ameigh-avatar

    After downloading, the app says "Unknown error, try again". I uninstalled/reinstalled and got the same error.

  87. Richard Danca-avatar

    Good app but linking to it from a CNN email takes *forever* to load. I always I must have disconnected from wifi. This doesn't happen with other news apps.

  88. Phillip Dampier-avatar

    Phillip Dampier


    Can't get past U.S. or Int'l. Edition Screen. Setting app up failed because the Continue button doesn't work.

  89. Shae'ron Nikole-avatar

    Shae'ron Nikole


    Love the app! Super convenient and always great to have the top stories at your fingertips.

  90. Harry Keller-avatar

    All I get is "unknown error" when I try to open the app. Uninstalling and reinstalling does not work.

  91. Peter Maunder-avatar

    Great app. What's Really annoying is, since last update, pressing the back key in Android won't close the app!

  92. Ralph Jackson-avatar

    The app itself is easy to use, but the alerts just take you to the last thing you read and not to the subject of the alert.

  93. Lilit Avetisyan-avatar

    Lilit Avetisyan


    I will never use this app again,,, frustrating... long ads during news... and you will not listen a continuation of the news you were trying to listen

  94. Kimberly Malone-avatar

    Kimberly Malone


    Unable to open the app for the last 3 days. Keep getting: unknown error, try again.

  95. melissa olmstead-avatar

    melissa olmstead


    It crashes constantly and is FULL of ads. When it works, it works well though

  96. Rick Hlubek-avatar

    App used to be fine until latest update. Now there is no way to exit the app without stopping it by brute force.

  97. Leland Watson-avatar

    Always starts with weak or no connection then often goes ahead and starts. Do not experience this with any other application.m

  98. Thad Jackson-avatar

    The new update does not allow me to close out of it with the back button. I have to close out the entire window or kill the app.

  99. Waleed Abdo-avatar

    It's not free, it asks for a TV cable or satellite service login. If I have a TV cable or satellite service I won't need CNN app.

  100. Michael Bright-avatar

    POS, app won't connect - even after reinstall
