CBS News: Live Breaking News for Negative User Reviews

Runs so slowly!Feels unfinished. Not polished. Slow to navigate..Version: 2.2.1

DisappointedI’m sorry- I was excited to see this app but it looks like it was rushed. I don’t expect to watch advertisements before a clip. So disappointed..Version: 3.9.0

Bad updateIt was my favorite free news channel, until the casting function stopped working..Version: 4.1.6

V2.2 Crashes at Start-UpAnother app rendered useless by lazy upgrade developers. I'm running iOS 3.1.3, like many iPod 3G 8GB users..Version: 2.2

Very pleased, but for CRYING OUT LOUD....Over all, this app is pretty good but for CRYING OUT LOUD, could we please see a news filter?!? I don’t know of a single news app that let’s the user decide what news they do not care about. For instance, this royal wedding crap. Really. Don’t. Care. I’m getting notification after notification. STOP!! PLEASE! A royal wedding has ABSOLUTELY NO BARING ON MY LIFE AT ALL. Plus, I’ll still hear about it when I manually check the news. I don’t need notifications about it or see it when I open the app. I can’t wait for when she gets pregnant! UGH. Children are born every day all day long but because the parents are royalty my notifications are gonna get taken over by it!!.Version: 3.7.2

Keep stop playing after each news updateKeep stop playing after each news updates. And all the news live broadcast shows the same new reports and all live channels, They all the same. For example, Bay Area, and cbsla and Denver, and Colorado show the same broadcast! Y’all should be showing news from that area y’all in! Again, the same news report I watch on cbsla for LA, it’s shower again on the Bay Area channel. Make no sense! And y’all shows the same thing over and over again. Repeats. It doesn’t seems live to me at all after a certain point. It’s a good app, but can be way better than it is! Thank you..Version: 4.1.18

Please stop trying to force us to vote democratic. It will backfireI feel threatened and bullied when I see this information. Please let us make up our own minds. We are so tired of having you feed us false information to force us to vote Democrat. It’s going to backfire.Version: 4.1.16

Bookmark collection in app over 10 years gone in an instantI have been using this app for years as a main go-to News app fir 10 years. The collection of bookmarks I had are completely gone in an instant of an update. The white on black type is minuscule and fatiguing to the eyes. All of this creates zero loyalty total and tech fatigue. Those bookmarks were referred to and shared with online groups frequently. Thanks for thinking of the end user. At. All. The app now looks like every other app out there and took away what was valued most with no warning. Update: what some of the sizing was adjusted, the spacing of the type still was not. Please work with a designer to get a correct and useful to end-users. The app still stalls regularly on video play..Version: 4.0.2

CBS news app unstableAs of April 30, 2010 the app just shuts down. You start it... It updates the news stories... And it crashes... I now use CNN. Great when it worked..Version: 0

Get rid of the adsRemove ads landscape is a must font size change button is needed.Version: 0

Started to crash on May 4 - still crashing July 1Still f&$ked on May 5, moved to trash Reinstalled June and crashed as soon as OK location, back to trash.Version: 0

Crash BangWorked pretty much fine till April 28. But now loads then crashes every time you go to click on a story. Completely useless till it is fixed!.Version: 0

Crashy crashy crash bangYa confirmed. Many many crashes to homescreen on my iPhone 4 with 4.0.1. Avoid until fixed..Version: 0

Doesn’t save progress, too many commercialsThe app is great for the fact that shows are available so quickly. However they are almost unwatchable unless you can watch uninterrupted. Anytime you need to step away, you have to reopen the app and try to find your place, and then rewatch all the commercials up to that point. I end up watching multiple times more commercials than on a regular broadcast. I also had an issue where another video was playing in the background somehow so I had to stop the one I was watching, find my place again, rewatch 5 minutes of commercials, etc. In order for it to be usable, it needs to save progress and limit the number of commercials you have to watch on any given video. Something most other streaming apps are able to do without issue..Version: 3.7.1

It used to work wellI like how advertisements are minimal, but you should be able to close them. The articles show up very well, including the images. Scrolling through news stories doesn't work (anymore)! It's kind of useless when the same articles reappear..Version: 0

Opinions of OneI guess if I wanted a one sided biased news app for liberals this would be perfect. The morning news group does nothing but promote separation in our country by pushing all things non-trump. Regardless if they like our current president or not they should report and keep their personal opinions out of the story. I have watched this news show for many years and have now stopped due to this news outlets driven agenda. I have also stopped watching all other shows related to this network. Here is a tidbit of information, most people are not liberal ~ USA hating individuals. WE want fare balanced news without your journalist personal opinions influencing the story. What ever happened to journalist reporting facts instead of hidden agendas???!!.Version: 4.1.15

Don't waste your timeThis app just crashes over and over!! Frustrating, because it had great content! Just can't get to it!!.Version: 2.2.1

Don't botherParochial US-only trivia. Constantly crashes. Can't turn off those annoying push news alerts that arrive early in the morning. Re anything local (eg weather) repeatedly gives error banner that where I live "doesn't exist". If you're not a CBS news junkie living in New York, avoid this piece of rubbish..Version: 0

No Search Feature?With so much going on, Search is critical for time management! Bryana’s story can’t be found?.Version: 4.0.6

...Giving it 2 stars because you can’t search anything!!.Version: 4.1.2

We don’t care about your politics in CanadaAlmost every day... at 12:30..” you put on these stupid “ special report “ of something to do with your politics .. we in Canada do not care ... it doesn’t affect us .. please think of this ... I think it’s terrible that you interrupt a tv show that we pay our cable to see ... if we’re interested in all your politics down there , I’m sure if we cared to know, we could read it in your paper ... stop doing this .. makes us furious .. your news is not only in the U.S.. it’s sent to Canada too . Where I pay to see this channel ..keep this up, and I’ll stop paying for your channel.Version: 4.1.10

RepetitiveIs it necessary to have the same ad 3 times in a row? And the same ad’s for over a year. The news is pretty repetitive too..Version: 4.3.3

No ChromecastNeeds Chromecast support.Version: 4.0.6

Canot access the newsWhat go is your app if all I get on my iPhone is a blank screen???.Version: 4.0.2

AppTo much advertising.Version: 4.1.11

Annoying and Repetitive commercial will drive you insane!I like the news and the app, but the commercials they choose to play are SO repetitive and annoying! I watch the nightly news every night and during the 20 minute broadcast, CBS plays the same commercials over and over again, driving me crazy. In the period of 20 minutes, the Chase commercial with Red Hong Yi is played at least 4 times and the Farmers commercial is played the same amount!! I can’t stand hearing the same thing over and over again!.Version: 3.9.0

Solid, But With AnnoyancesI just came back to complain about this, forgetting that I already had several years ago. One well, I guess they don't care, but There's no need to change it: In my few times using this app it appears to be, for the most part, a solid and well-put-together news app. It has, however, a few things that bother me. The first is that I prefer to use the app in portrait mode, and it works well in either landscape or portrait orientation. Unfortunately, when you play a video it switches to a full-screen horizontal view every time. Nobody wants to keep rotating their iPad for every single video so, please, give us the choice of switching only if we want to. Usually, for me, it's not necessary. Also, it would be great if we knew how long a video was before we hit the play button. Nice to know what we're getting into..Version: 3.5.4

Need to differentiate articles that are video onlyI prefer to read my news rather than watch a video. I can read it at my own pace, or skim it to hit the main points. If I’m in a public place or in bed with my wife, I can still read news without disturbing others. There are numerous reasons why reading news is preferable. Need to add an indication which articles are video only, or include a filter so I can exclude the video only articles. I suspect CBS does this because it’s easy, they don’t have to write or document the article. Better yet, include a written article with every video so the user can determine how they want to get their news. Used to be my go to news app before the last update, now I no longer use it..Version: 4.0.1

Fix the appNow with the new update you can't read the stories.....seriously isn't that what the news is for??? Too many videos and ads and no news content worth wasting my time for!! Although I really enjoy the news stories provided by CBS, the app constantly crashes and won't load the entire news story!! Repeatedly when watching videos they freeze or the app crashes completely. Please fix it!! Now the most recent annoyance is ads that are imbedded in news story and play on their own!!! Seriously????? Can't we at the very least read a news story without being bombarded with advertising we didn't choose to listen to????.Version: 4.0.0

Jumpy cbsnewsThis app jumps ALL THE TIME when scrooling. Annoying to the point I simply deleted it. Too bad..Version: 0

Useless“Live” feeds are dead and don’t work..Version: 4.2.4

Awful program!Hate it - it crashes all the time..Version: 2.2.1

RidiculousRidiculous.Version: 4.3.8

Good Intuitive interface - nice mix of news areas covered - BUT NEEDS LANSCAPE MODEA good app, well polished, but seriously why no landscape mode for stories, text, images or video!?.Version: 0

CBSNews app crashing.CBS news app that I’ve had for at least 5 years now, closes within seconds of my attempting to open it, after the latest update. It worked great before. Well actually it worked as good as it ever has. Normally, it has long pauses with every video report I try to watch. Many times when the video freezes, the audio continues to play). This is all very frustrating because CBS is my favorite news app. I think the reporters are honest, fair, unbiased, and report many sides to controversial topics. I have tried everything I know of to try to fix this issue, but nothing works. HELP🤯.Version: 4.1.5

CBS LOS ANGELESLive coverage is non existent- this app SUCKS. I would hope to see live breaking news coverage than TRUMP. Done with cbs Los Angeles- moving to NBC or ABC. Sad to be missing out on STU’s amazing coverage. He is like no other broadcaster..Version: 4.0.9

The news is good. But there’s this annoying feature…The news in this app is good. When you read a story, and they’re usually quite long, you have to scroll all the way to the top to be able to get back to the list of stories. That is very annoying. Almost all apps allow you to get back to the list of stories without having to scroll all the way to the top. So for this reason this app gets only three stars and I don’t use it as much as I used to because this feature is very annoying.Version: 4.1.15

CrappyWhat a crappy app. Aside from the news articles which are generally well written and informative this app is so slow loading and even reading pages jumps unexpectedly. Like really guys, you can't even get smooth scrolling text pages?! Oh yeah it crashes! Quick fix is to add the mobile home screen from the internet and bypass the crappy app and ads..Version: 2.2.1

Chromcast ???The most recent update does not have chrome cast..Version: 4.0.1

Good AppOverall, this is a good app. It becomes tedious; however, when you want to read a story, and you have to click on read full story. If I didn't want to read the story, I wouldn't have clicked on it. update-This problem seems to have been fixed. Now, however, CBS has joined the ranks of news apps that take you back to the first story so that you can then page down through all the stories you have already read to get to the next story you want. I am sure they have convinced themselves that this is helpful in some way. It is not..Version: 4.1.14

Average Americans Rejoice!If you want real news please skip this news service and Read the Intercept and Democracy now. This news is mainstream and lacks in-depth coverage of many important issues. This organization spent weeks covering a wedding of rich white people from England....enough said. CBS is mainstream news for the weak minded. They have light brown skinned reporters telling a distorted narrative derived and owned by white rich people. The incessant looping of the same stories is designed to make you care about these stories only and to forget the rest of the issues that are truly important. This is entertainment. Not news. Hopefully the white collar criminals in the office read this..Version: 4.0.1

I used to be able to watch a news clip at a time...Why did thay change it to be one clip then back to live news. What’s the point of that? This used to be a great app. Now, without a way to view a particular clip or control options, what’s the point? I want my choice to view clips or live news back. I would be willing to pay for it by subscription, but even that isn’t available. I see one clip and I’m done...On to someone else’s app. I used to like CBS news because of the focus on Quality over making a buck through advertising. Very telling that content and quality isn’t as important to decision makers. I am terribly disappointed. Sunday Morning is unique, and a favorite. I will miss it..Version: 4.0.7

Too. Many Adds!I respect to be subjected to some adds but the Paramount Plus plush is really annoying! Over and over the same adds...I got it “The Road West Was Paved with Blood”!!!.Version: 4.3.8

CrashThis app continually crashes. No landscape bites. Should have known this app was rubbish....I mean, well, check out their dud anchor!!.Version: 0

Very Unstable!Works for the first few minutes and then shuts down to your homescreen without any warning. VERY annoying. This needs to be updated & fixed asap!!!.Version: 0

Great broadcaster terrible listening experienceThe news coverage is excellent. The broadcast team is very personal. I think they do a great job. There doesn’t seem to be a strong bias and the interviews are very well done. The bad parts are the same commercials that repeated over and over and over again. The volume changes are extremely annoying. I have to lower the volume every time a commercial comes on. Further the app frequently freezes. The news coverage is excellent, the app experience is poor.Version: 4.1.15

Liked the older version much betterVideos often don’t play. Layout much too busy for iPad..Version: 4.0.2

Doesn’t play well with othersThe app allows good, easy access to articles, but if you like to listen to music or podcasts while you read, you better play it on another device. The CBS news app will override the audio of you other running apps as soon as you open it. It’s like the app is pregaming for you to watch news clips or listen to advertisements (which it doesn’t automatically load and play when you open it, so good for that). All in all it is a good news app worthy of 4-5 stars if it weren’t for the audio override issue..Version: 3.9.0

Search function?Why is there no search function?.Version: 4.1.10

Great news app the one app out of he original big three network apps that I depend uponIn a world where people choose to disregard news outlets because of how and why they do their reporting there are some outlets that report news for the sake of the public good. News is and should keep people informed and it also provides the little guy the means to tell the truth without fear of being destroyed by corporate or government malfeasance. There still is something called the truth and in the world of spin and bs there need to be someone to turn to that will shine a light on the truth. Shine on CBS and let there be somewhere to tell the truth!.Version: 3.5.3

CRAPCrashing all the time.Version: 2.3

Crashes0 stars, can't access. ....Version: 2.2

Video streams never worksBut at the same time “previews” works without sounds If we activate live radio (CBSN), we can get the sound..Version: 4.1.18

Deleting app has issuesLet me start out by saying if I have an app that sends a notification about a topic and I touch the notification and am brought to several articles and not the notification topic I selected I will delete the app from my phone. That said I experience this with the CBS news app. I had a couple notifications from this app and when I clicked them I WAS NOT brought to the topic the notification was for. To make matters worse I clicked the article I was interested in and was taken to a totally different topic. I selected another article I was interested in and viewed it. You guessed it not the topic I was trying to view. Time is money and I do not have time to sort through poopy apps. This app will be deleted. As a second remark generally it is highly likely a not so great app will have adverse effects on the phone as possibly battery drain or other issues. Goodbye useless CBS app..Version: 4.1.18

Lacks settingsArticles are displayed in a miniscule font size and which is hard on the eyes. Unlike the NYT app, font size can't be changed. Also unlike NYT app, orientation cannot be changed to landscape. The news articles seem ok, but overall this app isn't even close to the NYT app..Version: 0

48 Hours no longer plays on ipad48 hours and only some of 60 min shows now play on ipad app.Version: 4.1.10

Good appI have no problem with this app, works just fine.Version: 3.9.0

I don’t watch TV backwardsI have this app through my Roku and can watch TV shows similarly to how they’re presented here: in reverse order. Yeah that’s right, when you watch Face the Nation, for example, when it’s broadcast do they say “we continue now with our Interview with Dr. Fauci” then break to commercial and return with “Now we’ll check with Dr. Fauci on the latest...” or is it done in the *correct* order? This App lets you choose the order, but the App on TV doesn’t. They upload the show with the last segment on the left (or top) and want you to progress to segments on the right which are older. If you try to watch in the correct order (right to left) the volume is decreased to the point where you can’t hear. The app here mimics the Roku CBSN app in this regard. IF YOU DON’T WANT ME TO GO POSTAL, FIX THIS!.Version: 4.1.10

Unable to Disable AlertsI am unable to disable these obnoxious “Red Vs Blue” stream alerts that seem to constantly pop off on my phone at least daily. There should be some setting to disable these quasi-advertisements while still letting the real news alerts through. Unfortunately, there is not. Therefore, ALL alerts from this app are getting disabled, and an otherwise decent news app will get almost zero usage given the much better design of USAToday, CNN, ABC News, WSJ, NYT, etc. Sad. If they ever provide the user the ability to actually customize which alerts are received, I’ll consider giving this app another try. Until then, no reason to use this overall mediocre app given the numerous better options out there..Version: 4.0.9

Worst app news everThe user experience is terrible, scrolling and browsing around is bad. Videos don't update in the main view. Currently says I have to update to version 3.7 to continue using the app, then I'm transfer to the app store where there's no available update. I deleted the app then downloaded the app again, appstore asks me if I want to download an older version, I accept as my ipad is old, then open the app and again I'm forced to update to version 3.7 ad infinitum and ad nausea. You should keep providing support for older versions or alert me you no longer support my ios version and not misleading that I MUST update it and ending up not being able to use the app anymore..Version: 3.6.2

Design nightmareThe point is to communicate current events. This new design is messy, confusing and a massive disappointment. Tell me the headlines and then let me drill down into the stories. Keep it clear what is news, what is opinion and what is advertising. Seems so simple. How could CBS have gone so wrong? The home screen is cluttered. Stories are repeated in multiple sizes in different sections as you scroll. It’s supposed to be a mobile app. CBS apparently assumes the user has endless speed and remaining data available. Probably not. Let the user decide when to watch videos. The old app was much more organized, clean and easy to navigate. Bottom line: skip this app and go find an independent aggregation app..Version: 4.0.0

Update lousyI was just forced to update to version 4.2.3 of your app. I watch it on an iPhone 6. The previous version was fine. This version it’s not downloading well. It took a couple tries to watch overtime. I tried to watch the live feed and the speakers could not finish a sentence before the video and audio would freeze for a minute or two at a time. Finally I tried to watch a favorite, take out and it would never download just gave me a black screen with the play button but no video, no audio. No change when I pushed the button. Please work on this and create a new update very quickly as you have rendered the app nearly useless at least on an iPhone 6. This update I will eagerly take but I really resent wanting to watch five minutes of some thing and being forced to wait and update the app before I am allowed to do so. A much better method is to alert the viewer that there will be a forced update when they close this use of the app..Version: 4.2.3
