    Stories appear in tiny text and each line is cut off on the end with no way to scroll to see the rest. Update 9/15/14: CNN updated its app for the first time in over a year. Unfortunately, it did not improve anything. Text still appears tiny with each line cut off. The live tile has not updated for 2 days.

    Something happened and now articles are too small to read.

    Always sends 4 identical news alerts at one time. When I tap the alert, it takes me to a completely different story.

    Photo galleries are not accessible, or at least not in a user-friendly way as far as I can tell..

    Pure Garbage since last update! What good is breaking news alerts, if you can't see the breaking news.
  • by Ryan 9/13/2014
    Since last update. I'm getting double and triple breaking news alerts. Even after uninstall/reinstall.

    Getting 4 notifications for each event and the notification link doesn't even take you to the article. Video frequently not playable.
