Customer Reviews

Missing one thing (4 stars)
This app is great but removing the local news was not a good idea at all. I really enjoyed hearing what goes on around my neighborhood.

Huge disappointment (2 stars)
I was excited to see the "integration" of the U.S. and international apps for both perspectives (if you've ever watched CNN International you know how different it is). However it was a big letdown. Rather than having it all in one screen, I have to switch back and forth in settings, and if I'm in international mode I can't get to live TV, the best part of the U.S. app. I'm also waiting for the ability to watch CNNi live on my phon

Still way too hard to read (3 stars)
I was hoping that when an update for the CNN app came out they would listen to the many comments about readability. I would love to use CNN, but I simply have a very hard time reading the small light blue print on a black background. How about letting the user change the background to white with black text CNN?
