    This app lacks any sort of polish. It looks slapped together and not worthy of a company as good as CNN. PLEASE look at CBS's app and try again.

    Double notifications. Little annoying

    Nice app. However found it lacking in news reporting alerts. Customization to local/location news is also wanting. Live tile works but again leaves you wanting more. Couldn't find the much famed iReport section?

    App is okay but when you get a news alert it doesn't open it to the news alert. Why give an alert when you don't have the article to read.

    This App used to keep me updated but now,I can't even read one article. Please fix and I will re-review

    Live tile doesn't update. Notification alerts don't link to the actual story. Live TV is a nice feature though. CBS, NBC, and ABC news apps all work much better. Fox News app is good but has no alerts.

    I hate that there are some headlines on the web page that do not show up in the app... The headlines on the app are very limited and there is no way to search for articles you are looking for... and for whatever reason the links don't work on the website.
