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!

This is a decent app for browsing news content on your computer in an app format. I especially appreciate the push notifications on my screen. However, I take two stars away for the simple fact that when I do get a breaking news notification and click on it, it simply takes me to the app home screen, where I can't easily find the story I clicked on in the first place. Major fail right there. For that reason I prefer just using the Breaking News or Apple News apps on my iPhone.

I like that we can submit our own news stories. It's cool

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.

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.

After upgrade to Windows 8.1 from 8.0 recently (June 2015) in preparation for July's Windows 10 improvement, this app suddenly started doing notifications, interrupting my work on the Windows Desktop (where I do 99% of my Windows use, not in "Tileworld" apps.) Despite my never having turned that on in the past, when I installed it on Win8 a couple of years ago.
Worse, its permissions include, as NON-CHANGEABLE, permission to "Use your Pictures Library" and "Use your Videos Library". At least the Webcam and Microphone permissions prompted me for approval, which I of course disabled. But there's no reason for Pictures and Library to hard-default as "ON" with no way to turn off. I do fully understand why those permissions might be needed by people who want to submit iReport or other news tips - but they should default as OFF, and should be changeable.
Inappropriate privacy violation by Time-Warner and its Turner subsidiary. Likely deleting this app.

The app is back to being and acting good. Live tiles are working again and so is the "Breaking News" notifications. Good job CNN.

Forget CNN. I want a Richard Quest application. My daughter loves watching him on tv, and my husband can't stand him. Its win win!

The stories that catch my attention end up making me mad and depressed and then I end up leaving comments I regret later. Happy thoughts instead and bake some brownies! :-D

love news, best news app. use it in the states and when I am out of the US. wonderful app

Am I crazy, or does this app not have an option to post links to Facebook, as I was able to do with my iPad? A rather glaring omission, no?

Would be nice if A "Notification" would take you to The Story it's notifying You about....

Have always trusted CNN, appreciate their reporters and coverage... and I like the app. Just wish you could share stories... on social media... hello? Or how about selecting text within a story and doing a web search to find more detail. And how about a search function... to search for articles within CNN? Oh...one last thing... a feedback link. Or is that asking too much?

Seems to have more than a few bugs in the interface! Photo galleries, for instance, don't seem to work. The app frequently freezes on photos and you have to exit entirely to free it. Also, as a deaf person I really wish CNN would caption their videos, or at least provide a link to a transcript. You're leaving out a whole audience there. Why not be inclusive instead of exclusive? Or is the news just for people who can hear?

CNN is a good app, but I cannot get anymore push notifications on my computer, even when the push notification settings are turned on. Please bring back the push notifications!

Prof.Bergen's analysis if right on the mark. You cannot argues with the data he presents

live tiles sometimes stop working....

It's nice to have the tile live again & the breaking news ticker.
I respect and appreciate CNN as a news source - one of the remaining (in my opinion) true journalists. This review & you're up to four stars. Thank you!

When will CNN Go be available? Seems like a perfect option for this app.

Takes to many permissions & too many terms and conditions.

Why would anyone give this 5 stars? The videos never works, live tiles are not live, and alert popups don't go to the alert stories when clicked. Videos seemed to work occasionally in the middle of 2014, but I have not seen them work since. I can only view CNN through the browser, making this app totally worthless. The live tile does not flip with headlines or breaking news! Wasn't that the point of "Metro" or "UI" style in Win 8.1 to have flipping tiles with updates. I like the headlines popping up in the upper right hand corner of the display, but if your quick enough to click the popup, it just takes you to some random CNN story, and not the breaking news story. Otherwise, the overall layout is nice. Notice that most people rate this app low for the same reasons I did. But for some reason, CNN does not fix these serious bugs. CNN should either fix them or remove this app completely.
