    Give me what I need, which is quick access to the headlines. One suggestion: provide a link so we can usually get to the web version of a news story, particularly so we can comment on news.

    This app would be significantly better if one could move between stories swiping left and right. Other news apps are able to do this (huffpo, guardian, Vancouver sun....). Also, there is no way to shrink or expand images. Why not?

    Since the latest update whether I choose an article from Twitter or your app it won't load. It shows the loading bar almost at the end but never loads the article. Very disappointing!

    It would be great to be able to stream video via chromecast.

    ...shame, good app otherwise - if you're patient.

    Tapping the news alert notification doesn't open the page with details. The breaking news tab does not include the ones recently published either, so the alert is just an annoyance and I suggest whoever uses this app to turn it off.

    This app is what I wanted from CBC for a long time. Finally I can watch the national on my phone!
