Frustrated that when I select a particular news notification, I am not taken to that story. Then I have to search for it. Making the app only good for notifications because sometimes I cannot find the article in the app and have to go through the internet to find the story. Lame.

Displays in tiny font - unreadable on MS Surface Book

This might be a good app, but it is impossible to read articles as they all display in a tiny font size that is virtually unreadable. This is not improved by lowering the screen resolution of my Surface Book, which has a default resolution of 3000 x 2000. Why is there no font size control from within the app? Unfortunately, I am uninstalling this app.

This app blows

Can't get any of the shows and what videos you can get you set through more commercials than video.

There's one problem that made me uninstall

I can't find a way to disable notifications. Otherwise it's perfectly fine.

Cant share....

I like the idea of the app but there are multiple things I wanted to share but I cant, there's no share button for anything. I'm betting they will add one in the future but until then its alright.

Needs to be updated for windows 10

Video stops playing as soon as the app stops being active window. This was ok with windows 8 (which only showed app in full screen) but need to be updated for windows 10 as it can show multiple apps at a time. Also, needs full set of contents (compared to the webpage)

Requires fix

Too "smooth" to scroll when navigating the app and when open in windows 10 it narrows the view u have to maximize the size of window and then reduce the size of the window to adjust

My PC stalls during the video. Printing matter and still pictures are good.

Mostly good but....

(update 6\20) performance is fine on Surface 3. Site needs overhaul current content not very rich or varied. (Update 11\03) the only videos that do not play are in the Top and Latest story section.....'(update 10\28\14) I agree with the other reviews that are unhappy with what the app wants access too. Maybe CNN wants that access so you can file I-reports. I don't know. Basically I really like this app and the content it provides. My biggest complaint is some video says it can't play check your internet connection. I don't think my internet or anyone else's connection is the issue. Fix it!
