Great app for up to the minute news! 5/5
Wonderful, thoughtful news presentation in user-friendly app!
Love this app 5/5
What a great way to stay up with the news. CBS seems to be the only major broadcast new organization to put an app out that just allows you to watch without inputting your cable provider details.
CBS Reader 4/5
App provides quick headlines to review, decent detail when you want more info. And because CBS News has world-wide coverage you can usually find up to date info as events unfold. Yes, there does seem to be more commercials.
By No flash Jim
I don't mind commercials but the same ones are played over and over and over and over and over. Untuckit shirt, omg I must have watched this a thousand times, makes we want to abc news. Help, help, help, please switch it up some before I go bonkers!!!!!!
This app is awesome. Can't do without it.
Excellent news app 5/5
I love the live streaming
Great app 5/5
This is a wonderful and very helpful app to have while on the go. I'm up to date with all the lastest breaks news and local news in my community and surrounding areas in the DMV.
Freeze/ Terrible 1/5
Much better than some. It "freezes" and, just TODAY the picture screen went BLANK. MUCH needed improvement.
4/19/17- HORRIBLE-- are you listening? It stops & starts.
The picture keep "meshing" together. If reading a particular article, then go back to HOME page, then the picture on the HOME page is turn to the side. What are you doing?
It is Graet! 5/5
I get the current news without having to watch TV.
Love it 5/5
Excellent app for news junkies 5/5
If you turn on alerts, they seem to be right on top of every important news story of the day. (If you have more that one news app and turn on all their alerts, it's fun to see who gets the scoop on breaking news.) Their videos look great on my iPhone 5S; even better on my iPad Pro. Every bit a 5-star app. Good job!
CBS news 4/5
I like the full screen presentation,particularly on the breaking news. The app is easy to use. The headlines bar is very helpful for picking out stories. Four stars for the non optional commercials that are very intruding!
I can't get up! 2/5
having two different views for their videos. One, when you have to lay down, and the other view you're sitting in your easy chair.
Can't figure this one out? I think whoever did this SITE is probably working for a competitive rival.
I won't be seeing CBS News until they make a correction.
this is really stupid. What are these people thinking?
Oh lets pissoff our viewers. Are you kidding me!
Bye CBS video news, let me know when you get off the floor ?
Thanks for the nixon trials and am eager to see the upcoming Trump trials. diversion anyone !
Isn't colluding with the enemy to rig an election, is called what?
Oh they had a man that knows all about that Steve B. something or other?
CBS fan before Dan R.
User Friendly and Objective 4/5
If you're looking for a simple way to find out up-to-the-minute news presented objectively and honestly, CBS News app is the way to go.
3 month old update still inoperative 1/5
fully 3 months have gone by since the last botched update. it still crashes 8 out of 10 launches and turns my display 90 degrees from what i have set (landscape) then spins the display 360 when quitting. it crashes more gracefully than that - it's best aspect in 3 months
cbs wasted money on the last few updates and i hope they hire a new tech co to do this right.
in the mean time i found my own fix. it'scalled a bookmark, a bookmark. hey, fewer adds there also!
if he were still at the network, walt would be puttin his foot up somebody's...
On demand 5/5
I love being able to turn on the news regardless of the time of day. And, as several have said, there are lots of ads, but I simply think of them as my "monthly fee"!

you are amazing you the best
Best app for news alerts 5/5
Always beats the others.
Favorite free news app 5/5
This is my favorite free news app
Breaking News 5/5
Always first with breaking news CBS! Thank you.
A Wonderful News App! 5/5
To say the least, this app is great for both information style news... As well as Streaming Media style news.
Needs Work 2/5
Glitchy. Tons of ads.
If you like something tell a friend. I am. 5/5
I found and downloaded the CBS news app this morning. I liked what I saw and that's why I'm recommending it to you.
I watch it* on my iPad 'cause of the bigger screen. I haven't tried to do this yet, but you most likely can flip it up onto your big screen TV using your Apple TV.
* The app also downloaded onto my iPhone. I haven't used it on my iPhone yet.
Four things I like about it:
1. It's relatively ad/commercial free. I mean it doesn't have a lot of ads. And when the ads do come on they don't last forever and ever and ever like cable TV programs with one ad after another after another.
2. It's quick fast paced relevant current news reporting.
3. I like watching the Live option over the reading option.
4. In the Live option mode you can backup to watch news topics previously reported. If you go backwards to a previous news item you can then either jump back to Live, or it will cycle itself up to the current real time live programming and then keep going.
The only downer I see with the app is the ads..., but the app is free.
Enjoy it if you use it. I quite like it.
Excellent source for news. 4/5
By Rhae's grandma
Up to date and on top of breaking stories.
Great app 4/5
Straight forward news. No fluff or bias
Too many commercials 4/5
By The Ozark Angler
I'm giving this app a well deserved 4 stars but it could have been 5 if they would cut commercials WAY DOWN!
Looking for something with less Ads 3/5
By Chucke full timer
Like CBS, but by the time I read 2 or 3 stories, I'm so mad at your Adds, I give up and go elsewhere..
Hey guys, it's free! 5/5
Although I'm hoping CBS does not go the way of CNN and present the news honestly. I recommend this App.
CBS is the BEST 5/5
I grew up on CBS and at 62 still undeniably think it's the most trusted and unbiased news source on the planet. I just wish I could say the same for some of their affiliates.
The Best App for News 5/5
CBS app has become my favorite source for news on iOS. A very credible source on many topics. And I especially appreciate the ability to watch live TV and streaming videos for free. Kudos to the folks at CBS.
Very good app to have 5/5
I've only just started using the app but I find it very useful for keeping up with up-to-the-minute events.
T J 5/5
I can't believe I took so long to get this app. Prefect videos, no slow feeds, no pixels to sort out. It really changes the speed of INFORMATION.
By SB Michael
Love the team at CBS news.
Good app 5/5
By Wonderful guy
It works very well on my iphone se with ios 10
Have been using for 6 months now. It works great every time.
Well put together. 4/5
Very informative, and so far no fluff news that I do not want to hear. Good job CBS!
A Newsworthy App 5/5
I find this app very useful with alerts for breaking news and video link to evolving stories. This is one app worth having
No closed captions, it stinks 1/5
No closed captions, it stinks!! They do have CC button but NEVER have captions on any videos. That's a lie!
Great app, good news, worst commercials 3/5
I'm grateful to be able to watch a good news cast, and while I don't mind commercials, I loath that one commercial is played at a volume literally 5 times as loud as anything else. The news and every other commercial are one volume, but the Nissan Rogue commercial is SOOOOOO loud, that it literally makes you jump out of your skin. I've had to stop watching because of it. PLEASE make all the volumes the same!
Love it 5/5
Great app with great features. Highly recommend downloading.
Clean Design, Solid Reporting 5/5
This is my favorite news app. It is vast in content, straight forward, and unbiased. Definite contender to the other networks with 24 hour CBSN. News anytime and anywhere.
Well worth a free download. 5/5
That I think CBS is generally of sufficient quality to listen to is implicit in that I'd download this at all. That having been said, the app works well, and I've had no complaints.
I like this. 5/5
By Chickin Thrower
This app is working good to give me news in the way that works best for me. Thank you, see BS!

CBS is the best 5/5
By CBS news watcher
The best news app on the App Store
CBS News 4/5
I like the 'at the touch of a finger' I've access to the latest news happenings in the USA and the rest of the world! I don't have to wait on a specific time to view what's going on in the world.
What can I say. 5/5
Is one of the apps that I open and see at least once a day… it keeps you inform and that's what i want.
