Liked the 60 Minutes 32 bit app better 2/5
By Miss Amaretta
The old 32 bit app gave full access to the archives which I really loved. Now you need a very pricey subscription to CBS All Access. If you are well off and don’t mind getting dinged all the time, the app is probably OK. If you have to watch your credit cards closely, you might want to think twice about it. It is easy in but hard to get out of.
CBS isn’t the only one to get greedy with the new 64 bit apps (since iOS11 the old ones don’t work). Many others have done the same - Cooks Illustrated comes to mind. It is just that 60 Minutes didn’t seem to be that kind, but this is the way it is.
Investigative at its best 5/5
The highest quality broadcast reporting, hands down. Been watching for 30 years, hopefully 30 more.
60 Minutes app 5/5
This app is great. I’m joying it very much, keep coming with the updates and notifications, thank you.
Love 60 min but app this is trash 1/5
I was forced to upgrade from the old app with zero commercials and all episodes for less 10 dollars a year (I think it was $4.99) to this one with commercials and limited content.
No Chromecast Support 1/5
By Great Oden's Raven
Which is crazy because it’s in the main CBS app.
Just awful 1/5
By N/A 1234
Please move past the 18th century.
This app is outdated and 60 minutes needs to just move everything to YouTube and open it up for the world to see the atrocities and the great leaders.
I love the app and use often, easy to navigate, finding exactly what I want to watch, when I want to watch the best investigative journalism in America.
Love the App 5/5
Since we don’t have cable TV, this 60 Minutes App makes the way for us to enjoy one of our favorite news stations. We don’t mind the advertising, CBS has to pay the bills.
I just paid for 60 Minutes All Access and when the app wouldn’t play any episodes, I called tech support and was told that the apps don’t support paid users!! The only way to use the paid benefits is via a browser. So what in the world is the point of the app??
Please Allow Downloads! 3/5
Generally good app, but it would be fantastic if we could download segments onto the app.
Love 60 Minutes but... 1/5
...this app is trash!!! I recently started watching through the app again but I’m having the same issue I had a couple years back that caused me to stop using the app: after a brief 38 second intro and two commercials no other content is played. It’s essentially having an app to watch commercials. No thanks! I do not see a quick link in the app to report app problems and will not spend time searching for one. This was the easiest way to report the problem. 60 Minutes....you are better than this crap. Fix it.
60 Minutes Junkie 5/5
This review is based on the content of 60
Minutes. There are issues re: programming and All Access that I will address towards the end of this review.
I have been watching 60 Minutes since it’s inception! So yes, as the Paul Simon song goes, “I’m older than I once was, but younger than I’ll ever be again! There doesn’t seem to be a time when 60 Minutes wasn’t on! Over the years we have had to say goodbye to many, if not all, of the original reporters who first came into our homes and changed our way of thinking about significant societal issues and certainly changed our Sunday nights forever!
Through it all, 60 Minutes has remained consistent and steadfast in bringing us the stories that really matter and shape our world. They have not been concerned with tackling easy content. They are more concerned with bringing us the difficult stories in what I believe is an effort to make us think and also provide conversations around the water cooler on Monday mornings! And honestly, I hope this continues for years to come!!
Thank you so much, 60 Minutes for what you have contributed to all of us, young and old alike, for so long! Whether we often agree or disagree with the stories presented, you have forced us out of our comfort zones each week, so that we are given food for thought and not merely just for ourselves, but to share with and challenge others!
I noticed that one reviewer addressed the problem of not being able to cancel their subscription. I certainly like the idea of CBS All Access, but I think I will wait and subscribe when all of the bugs have been worked out! In the meantime, I will be content to tune in every Sunday night at 7:00 to find out what thought provoking stories will be presented to us.
Excellent program 5/5
We love watching the program especially when we are overseas. I record it when we are not able to watch directly. The reporters are serious about the issues they report.
I love this app! 5/5
I've enjoyed this app for years. A huge help when I'm unable to see the live version Sunday night.
Good app 4/5
App works well. Good stories.
Download already! 3/5
I enjoy very much the stories on this app for 60 minutes; however, I couldn’t get the app to download onto my iphone6-S Plus. I held the Home & on/off switch and it came up with a little cloud, signifying I HAD downloaded it! There is still no app icon on my Home screen! When I tried to click on the little cloud, this is what I got: “You’ve already purchased this so it will be downloaded again at no additional costs.” It doesn’t!
Good content, horrible app 2/5
Love watching 60 minutes but the app is super glitchy and not user friendly. For example, I got a new credit card and to change my payment method I need to email customer service or call customer service to provide them with my new payment method.
CBS Renegs 1/5
Be careful with CBS. I bought the 60 Minutes app and paid real money for access. CBS then decided to change their subscription model and threw out the old deal. While I imagine they had legal ability to do so, caveat emptor. If you buy something today, they just might decide to change the terms tomorrow.
Love the App 5/5
By Fan since the 80's
This App is great! I can access the stories 24/7 at my convince. Thanks for making it happen.
Nothing But Commercials 1/5
The original 60 minutes app was fantastic. You could watch a 10 or 14 minute video whenever you had time. No commercials and no hassles. This is horrible—practically nothing but commercials. I’ve deleted it.
Moving in right direction 4/5
Simple design and clear menus with Incremental consistent improvements is what this app has going for it.
(But please don’t do an Apple Watch app!)
Don’t like having to. Log in AGAIN while in the app. 3/5
I don’t go around memorizing my log in info. Feel like I’m being treated as a child. God forbid I install the app in my other app, on another device (like Time magazine your only allowed to have app on ONE device.
60 Minutes App 5/5
I love this app. I can watch the segments anytime i want.
Very convenient 5/5
Absolutely love to have the opinions to see the interviews on my own time when I want to. Have been enjoying this app for years and the new version made it faster and with less glitches. Love it.
Some Truth With Some Fake News 1/5
Definitely not the reliable 60 Minutes I grew up with. Their math, especially percentages, not to be believed. Shame.
Too many ads 1/5
You have to watches minutes of ads before each clip. For a paid app this is not worth it.
Great app+ program but... 4/5
Sometimes older stories and video content do not load at all. I can’t really delve through the entire 60 Minutes catalogue...its more of the recent stories and some highlights.
Overall Good 4/5
Very good 5/5
Great reporting, well presented. Love it.
Best app ever 5/5
I love 60 minutes and I love to access every report ever made, is worth it pay the $10 per one year
I don't like 3/5
This app. Is pretty good but at times can get a little quirky. The thing that really pisses me off to a hilt , especially that 60
Minutes is so good at taking the moral high, they will take upon themselves to automatically renew your subscription every year
Not even giving you any
other options. It's very possible you could be end up, even if you are no longer using the app. Paying for it for the rest of your life. Or until the human race becomes extinct. Which ever happens first. 60 minutes is just counting on the fact that you will simply forget about it. This is such a slim ball tactic. Even if you call 60minutes to request getting off autopay they will refuse to comply. Maybe we need to run 60minute report on 60minutes
Better than on the TV 1/5
I paid $5.99 for the previous version that’s not supported anymore. Now I have to pay to watch.... where’s my $5.99?
60 Minutes app not working on iPhone running iOS 11. Canny subscribe. Read-only error. 1/5
I could not subscribe on the app due to this error.
Favorite Show 5/5
Favorite show of all time, so happy I have the option to consume it in a way that is palatable to my lifestyle!
Stories don’t play, even when I login. 1/5
Except for the most recent week, the stories don’t play, even when I login. When I click through to the story page, it acknowledges my login is authenticated but no link to play the stories.
Great App 5/5
One of the BEST news reporting available.
Impossible to cancel and for the life of me, I don’t see the difference between the paid and free option. Total scam job. The sort of thing Mike Wallace would have blown the lid off of.
Finally, a proper archive of all the 60 Minutes episodes. I’m a huge fan of this show and ten bucks for an entire year of unlimited, ad-free access is very fair. (You can also pay 99 cents a month)
The app runs well, you can quickly exit one story and start another without it crashing, unlike the last 60 Minutes app that was a disaster; this one seems to be very well optimized. They finally got their sh*t together.
Time tested and trusted 4/5
Sitting on the floor playing legos with my grandparents and it was on, now it is on for my family too. They almost never get it wrong and always do the research; It is nice to still have this institution to trust. The app is just today’s way to access this great show. It’s not great. I like having access to past shows. It is a bit cumbersome to navigate and not terribly intuitive to get to past show. I think that the content should be transcribed and linked with rich media and sources/source material. The info and research exists, why not share it?
Great show, good app.
The best 5/5
By Black Zombie
Hands down 60 minutes is the best segmented news show with the facts and little opinion. Watching it since I was a kid with my dad. Thanks 60 minutes for all the years. I’ve watched correspondents come and go and they are all great.
Buggy app. Doesn’t support AirPlay it Cast 1/5
Super buggy and doesn’t allow you to push it up to your TV.
The best of the best 5/5
By To Be A New Day
I have been watching 60 minutes since the early 1970’s and there is not any news outlet that can touch it’s credibility. Now I can watch it anytime I want and that is awesome! Bravo
The controls are terrible 2/5
Great content, terrible controls. Scroll bar works intermittently and there’s no 10-second rewind or fast-forward. Those should be standard on players. The old app (how many times have we heard this one?) worked much better...
Ruined app with commercials 1/5
The previous app was good. This one runs the same drug commercial over and over. I don’t have rheumatoid arthritis nor would I ever take such a toxic drug if I did!
News to Go 4/5
Always loved 60 minutes, the show. Now I can enjoy the stories on the go! Especially handy as a mother of young children.
60 Minutes of Pure Quality Journalism 5/5
60 Minutes had been my favorite tv show since more than a decade and I enjoy watching and listening to every minute of it. Having the best of every show available through this app will definitely ensure that I don't miss any of their interesting documentals anymore. Great Job!.
No Bluetooth. Really CBS?? 1/5
By Myzelle Jenkins
Can’t believe this app has NO Bluetooth ability. So, if you want to listen over your wireless speaker, wireless headphones, Apple TV, in the car, etc, sorry-you can’t. Plus, they claim more than once the paid subscription “is 100% ad-free”...well guess what—I’m a subscriber and even after logging in I still see ads before & during stories. Come on CBS—this is embarrassing...
Excellent user interface 5/5
App is much better than I thought, being able to browse through the segments with ease and enjoy 60 minutes
