Did anybody at CNN actually test this?

Yes it provides news stories, yes it provides updates which is what a news app should be doing. How about if the notifications actually took you to the story that you were trying to read more about?? Seriously CNN... let's start trying to do things that actually make sense.

Several complaints

• it should be standard function to have share capability • font size tends to be small, would be nice to be able to adjust size • I know it's a subjective statement, but I just don't care for the usability of the application.

Changes to the app

I like the app; I find it useful but I wish there things different about it. For starters, it would be nice if the text boxes were big enough to show the entire alert instead of stopping in mid senten... Also it would be nice if clicking the alert took you to the story that was related to the alert; like the android app does.

Permission for microphone and webcam use?

Why is it necessary to use my microphone and web camera on my tablet? I chose to not allow It, but I am curious as to why you would like to use it.

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.

As others have mentioned. The alerts in Windows 10 are cool, but clicking on the story in the alert you just land on their main page and then have to hunt for the story. This behavior caused me to uninstall it.
