    App is broken again. Body text is tiny and not wrapped or scrollable. This may be due to a change at CNN but an app has to respond quickly with an update. Sick of this happening every few months and about ready to uninstall for good.

    Print too small to read. Must be an error.

    Some news are kept for days as if nothing else is happening in the world. The font changes to a very small and unreadable.

    Text doesn't wrap properly on my new Nokia 930, sentences are cut off, making it hard to read.

    Gas all the right features but a few bugs. The updates settings keep reverting to no updates. Text on some stories is too small and runs off the screen.
