    The app does not update the content on a regular basis. I am often seeing the same articles for 3 to 4 days.

    Hasn't "updated" my news in a week!!!! Good thing I don't rely on this app for all my news

    This app doesn't update itself every day. When I am away from my computer or TV, I want to get the latest news on my cellphone.

    This app sucks!!! I'm still reading and watching videos that hasn't been updated from 4 days ago. Just saying

    At this point, my news articles haven't updated in a week. Shake to update setting doesn't even remotely work. I decided to switch over to ABC news app. Works great and has a refresh button and more interesting stories.

    App gets very little attention from CNN...stories that are 5 days old are headlined as recent news
  • by User 10/20/2014
    Tile doesn't update. News is old. Type unreadable even set on large.

    This app sucks . It does not update the news like it should . I gave it one star because it won't let me give it any less .
  • by User 10/20/2014
    The articles have not updated in about a week and everytime the app updates you have to go back in and add your settings or else the font is incredibly tiny and runs off of the app screen. (Once you go to your settings it fixes this though for anyone who is having issues with it.)
