Ratings and Reviews

5 ★ Very much appreciated for the continuous accurate information. Very professionally done. I follow Fox News for the counter narrative, it is all akin to picking up a National Enquirer or News of the World at the Grocery Till; I so badly want to see a clean Conservative slant that CNN is as close as I can get. CNN APP, covers many subjects, their Broadcast is so very limited that their online materials compensate for that.

1 ★ Worked great on my S9+, just tries ony new S21 Ultra and live feed won't play. Black screen after login. Can play video clips just no live feed. It's been 2 months and still no reply or fix. I'm logged in with my account and my TV provider. Very disappointing

5 ★ Updated review- I rely on this CNN app for up to date information. I check for the latest news on any story. I love the way the hosts now call BS on guests that tell outrageous lies. The fact check them live. They do not let QAnon rants to spew dangerous. This app is the first thing I do each day and last thing I do each night. Articles are informative and well written. In this terrible time, CNN is stating outright that Trump lies. No talking in circles or carefully chosen words. Refreshing. 🐇

4 ★ I know it said describe your experience, but the best thing I can say is that I love watching and listening to it by telephone my TV and in my vehicle and certainly whenever I go by my mother's home or my brother-in-law & sister's home I'm going to watch and hear CNN and MSNBC. I didn't really get into it until the pandemic started in 2020, I see now how very informative it is I'm glad to be one of the listeners and followers of CNN. No to anyone that sees this and the have not tried CNN, try it

1 ★ This app is constantly buffering . I uninstalled restarted phone then I reinstalled it again. with another app they told me to update OS, delete cache & data uninstall that app ,restart phone, reinstall there app. When I did the buffering had stopped. I tried to do the same with your but it didn't work. It stops on your commercials and they get back up on my phone ad I hae to delete the video's. Unfortunately this app has not improved since my last post I did in December .

2 ★ Adds adds adds are the goal of this app. I pay for cable and can log in online, similar adds to normal tv. This app takes the adds to a whole level. Its so many more adds than normal TV, im deleating the app. Will just stream through browser when needed. Oh, the radio broadcast, even more adds than the live video stream. Cnn should be ashamed with the amount of add gouging.

1 ★ It keeps serving me the same American adverts all the time.I have worked in the digital media sector and the UK best practice is to A only serve ads to the correct countries of the advertiser B only serve the same ads to the same people a maximum of 5 times I have seen the ad for an American Bank that is not in the UK at least 25 times I do wonder what that client would think if they knew that there advertising dollars were being wasted on customers in a country where they have no presence

1 ★ I use the Android version but 7 times out of 10 it fails to open properly. Its the only app where I have this problem and would love to be able to let developers know but can't find a link to do this. PS - Used the app for years on my iPhone with no problem.

4 ★ I read watch CNN news more often its well spoken to make people understand the facts. The news anchors, co workers reporters all friendly with good presentation on new development through out the world. The network covered every useful news for public view.

5 ★ Very informative, unbiased thus far with reporting. Other news stations report with a very biased agenda, promoting mistrust in news reporting. Keep up the great reporting, the TRUTH is important and hopefully your stance on reporting based on facts will help the mass in trusting the news.

3 ★ A fine app. But in general am disappointed with CNN. Too much hot air and sermonizing from Cuomo and Lemon. Less of them, please, and more from real journalists like Tapper and Smerconish, Keillor (sp?) who ask questions of guests and listen. Fareed Zakariah, brilliant... More of him, please.

5 ★ Unlike TV, I can choose from a wide selection of topics anytime and anywhere. But, best of all, I get the right information on what is really going on and from the prospective of many. Since the last administration, I have found CNN vital.

5 ★ Love the CNN app. It gives me up to the minute notifications of breaking news. I also like the "5 Things" morning news summary. It can be a bit cheeky and the I can smile at news instead of frown. Good job, CNN!

1 ★ App no longer populates their notifications correctly on my galaxy watch. Is the only app to have this issue and after searching through every setting it must be an issue with the app. It's been months and has never been updated to correct. I'm uninstalling and going with another news app that functions as they should.

5 ★ I love it. I always watch CNN.i really like CNN . I do not have any other news on my phone. It's the best. It tells you just what you want to know in detail. It could not be any better. I am 80 and watch it all the time. It's very interestering. I can not say any more. It's the best. You all can not be beat. I read the CNN news a lot during the day.
