"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.

    Why your app is outstanding and excellent is simple: not only do you at c/net review tech products and give great consumer guidelines of what and why to purchase but you do it in such a truely knowlegable and trustworthy way, that the consumer can have complete faith in such evaluations not just based on taste ,for example, but based on truely accurate technical expertise!

    App doesn't work on landscape mode (except for video content). All videos, regardless of duration, have THE SAME 30-second commercial for CBS show Big Bang Theory in front of them. There's a fairly short article history that you can scroll through, rather than the full archive of articles. Videos sometimes just don't play or load at all.

    All the videos seem just be tv show cbs ads. Not cnet technology reviews.

    I can't believe that you only show about 20 articles before reaching the bottom. Why can't I scroll as far back as I want like the iOS version. This app is useless if I want to see older articles. And no landscape? Why?
