    This app is useless unless you want to be annoyed. First every "breaking news" notification comes through 5 times. And what they consider "breaking news" is usually not. Then if you click the notification it takes you to the CNN app which does not have the story that just blew up your phone. Save your time just use Bing news.

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

    Much better. Stream is solid Edit: The notifications do not link to an article.

    Notifications don't link with stories and I'm tired of hunting.

    I love this apt. Would like to see an option for breaking news.

    After multiple crashes on startup following an update, i uninstall and reinstall app. its finally working good with live tv and all. My only issue is the LARGE cnn logo on home page and to its right an unused large black screen real estate. With small font you will think all available space matters

    This would be better if clicking on the notification actually took you to the story the notification was about instead of the Top Story

    Version fixed bugs. Great work. Good to be back, CNN!

    Live tile its not updating automatically

    What is the point of having alerts for stories, when said articles are selected to read, do not appear?
