Closes all the time, and completely unreliable product. What's the point in giving me "breaking news" when I can't actually view the article. Needs work.

Sucks on Windows 10

Between Windows 10 and my iPad, the CNN app is not worth using any more. It's slow, has a poor format and difficult to change the pop-ups.

Does what is says but....

It's a good app but it's restricted. Doesn't show as many stories as the website. Limited options to. No options to change the background at least to black. Not everyone wants a white background. As an example

PC "News" Notifications FAIL to open the Article!!

UNINSTALL. Can't even find the news article in the App after App notifies me of this great new report! DELETE APP. It's OK otherwise but Windows 10 "NEWS" App is MUCH better - Much better.

There's no way for me to stream the LIVE debate going on at the moment. Also, clicking on a notification does not bring me to the relevant article.

Frustrating Pop ups

CNN is my favorite "go to" news source, that being said this app is frustrating. I'm busy working on my pc and a pop up comes up in the corner of my screen with a one line (or half line) news bulletin that grabs your interest and when you click on it the app doesn't go to where you can finish reading it. Boooooo!

Crappy App

You can't shut off the pop up's in new notifications, when you do click a pop up rarely can you actually find the article that the pop up was about and the video player is weak.

Stay away! They have no control over what stories they send you. They, in fact, have no sense of what the world is outside of their little bubble.

No Sports Section

Really lacking when this app does not have a sports section
