    Text issues get fixed if you uninstall and install, but their content is still ****...

    Horrible app. Unable to view videos. App is clunky.

    I am transitioning from an iPHONE 5 to a Lumia Icon. The ICON is a great phone. This WinPhone 8 app is not at all an equivalent to the iPHONE. I am thankful that CNN has developed it for WinPhone; please bring it to parity with its Apple colleague. Dan McMaster, Syracuse, NY

    Can't read the full article! Most of the words near the right margin are cut off :(

    Where is the sports section?? Also, I had rather have all sections listed under each other just like the CNN website. And your irritating message to get the app when I browse through the website is now making me stop reading CNN!! :-/

    This is the worst app on my phone. The text is too small to read and articles do not rotate. You must back out from an article to navigate to another one. Setup to share articles is unnecessarily difficult.

    Font size in full article is very small
