"All Tech News, All The Time"

Reviewed by / Mar 21, 2015

CNET brings you the best in tech news and reviews.


The CNET app could be a tech lover's favorite app, if only it were consistent. It brings you everything you need to keep up to date and on top of the newest tech releases, reviews, and hacks to make your life similar. That being said, the app doesn't work well and tends to glitchy, which is overly frustrating.


The app has great features, reviews, and news. It's easy to use.


The app glitches, sometimes a lot.

    I installed the app because I like the website but... It has problems on graphics and from time to time freezes and I have a message for no internet connection

    Finally fixed the "to slow Internet" bug. Now back to enjoying the content on my Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4.

    Last update will not connect to the Internet, rendering it useless. All other apps connect as usual.
