The best 5/5
By Big Dude 1967
Currently the best news app I've ever used. Thoroughly reported, and constantly updated!! Simply the best.
Good, needs improvement 3/5
Good app with problems. The app does not rotate properly when my devices are rotated (iPad Pro & iPad2); too many ads which interfere with the news reports; sometimes stops working. This would be my 'go-to' app if it worked better.
News Finally 5/5
Modern day equivalent of the anchor desk. Sound bytes and loops no; thank you.
Too many ads 3/5
You've got the same ads running all the time. Every 2 minutes you run a minute of commercials = unwatchable.
Its true 5/5
Very Nice! 5/5
It is ver nice , some times app crashes other than everything fine.
Best News App! 5/5
It's next to impossible to find a good news network online without a ridiculous subscription. Thank you CBSN for doing the right thing!
Red banner 3/5
Please remove the red banner that covers up the article. It is distracting and annoying. Highlight it somewhere else. There now ads between the articles. Slow to go to the whole story. Whoever is writing the "how to " should stop. (i. e. How to watch the Oscars, or How to watch the Presidents address). It's kind of insulting.
Great app 4/5
By Clyde Nakasue
It's a great app that covers the most important news of the day without all those time consuming drug ads on the morning TV show. Although I like the hosts Charlie, Gale and Nora, those TV ads are a major distraction.
Good substitute when necessary 5/5
So happy to have this on those mornings that I oversleep!
Headline news in a few minutes 4/5
JUST what I want. Their culturally diverse staff is both capable & delightful! Ahh... such a nice and refreshing change.
Version bug makes unusable 1/5
Installed from iTunes Store 3.4.6. Open app. Says to work it needs version 3.4.6. Which opens to App Store with only OPEN available, no install. Repeat. Cycle. Repeat.
Up to the minute with "hit you hard" news. Let's me know what is going on and why - not the usual pablum to pacify my ego. Yes, keep hitting hard so I know who, what, and where this world is heading. I enjoy the "comic strip" interpretation of what happened in Washington via you and SNL!!
Best News App 5/5
From the live CBSN to the highlights of recent stories, this news app gives the most variety in terms of categories, reports, and delivery methods. Now, give me the option of have the CBS EyeOpener sent to my inbox every morning! My world...in 90 seconds.
Best news app. 5/5
Best news app! I have this app in every device I own..
App works well just wish it was 5/5
App works well just wish it was a longer news cast.

No fake News hear!
One Of The Best 5/5
Written by adults for adults.
Once we started watching the CBS morning show we realized how valuable real journalism can be. This app has the same focus.
Much better than the hysterical reporting style all too common by numerous other sources.
New user but so far so good
By Billie Richmond
CBS News is more accurate than most "reporting" companies , &a i read most of them on a daily routine. BBC news is as good or better, but I have family there (England) so I keep up on as much as I can.
I've been watching CBSN for a while now and think their reports are very good and the reporters are down to earth
+ 60 min. -promoville 3/5
I highly respect the CBS News organization & love the content provided on this app. However, the ridiculous amount of promos during it's evening news on this app have become unbearable. Now because of this, I watch the Nen Bee See nightly news. I still use this app for 60 minutes.
Good app 5/5
I enjoy the news content and originality make programs. The app works very well. It is easy to navigate and to read or watch the stories that you want to. Worth the download. I use the app on my phone, iPad, and through Roku for my tv.
always ON 5/5
FANTASTIC NEWS SOURCE IN OUR DIGITAL WORLD! Thank You! #CBSN always ON!
Good news 5/5
I just got the app a few days ago.. So far so good...I will write another one after I have tried it longer
Annoying orientation changes 3/5

On my iPad, it keeps bouncing back and forth between portrait and lanscape mode!
Nice footage on news great app
Great App 5/5
By Tool Maven
I love having access to CBS News.
Very easy to use
Needs lots of work 1/5
Besides all the annoying ads that continue to pop up when your reading an article which quickly is frustrating, the news are not updated often. There is no reason to use this app as it is currently set up. It's the #1 network why do you need so many pop up ads in one story?
CBS Mobile App reviewed by Herbert N Norville Jr 5/5

The CBS Mobile App is a very reliable app where I can stay updated about the news around me. It's easy too use and also simple to navigate.

Nice app+service 4/5
Would have been five stars if iPad PIP feature was supported. It's very easy to implement and should be a quick and very useful rollout for users
I have just begun to watch the "notified" programs, but the pictures and sound is good and the "pushed" programs are of interest.
Great News app 5/5
I don't know why....but on my IPad Air2 and my IPad Gen 3. The picture doesn't stay locked into position when I open the app. I usually watch in landscape and never had a problem. About 3-4 weeks ago, when I tap the app and go into the story it's fine, but when I tap out of story the picture goes into portrait. The only way I can make it landscape again is to back out and close app. I have deleted the app and reopened several times, but it change anything.
Good source of news 5/5
Ez to read, comprehensive news articles! I enjoy the app and use it through out the day!
Most Excellent News Coverage! 5/5
I am updating my review after my initial review which focused on frustrating technical issues. I turned CBSN on this morning to find "Poet Against Prejudice" with host Vladimir Duthieres in progress. The program was excellent and I can't wait to see the interview in full. Face the Nation, Sunday Morning, 60 Minutes, Forty Eight Hours, Evening and Morning News...ALL are stellar! Oh, and Charlie Rose. Thank you so much for what you do. Your rendition of " A Christmas Carol" was a wonderful, much enjoyed Christmas experience enriched by your kind face and voice. The new addition of "Red and Blue" has become my "go to" for political news along with knowledgeable guests and commentary. So technical difficulties aside, as expressed in first review, I have updated the app from 3 stars to 5. Thank you, CBSN, for providing an excellent and inspiring perspective on what is going on in the world. 2 thumbs up! First review: While the news coverage is excellent the streaming is not! On a daily basis there are multitudinous glitches in CBSN's ability to maintain a live stream. Because I usually watch the news in my living room it finally occurred to me it might be my streaming device so I turned on my bedroom TV to see if that was the case. No such luck. I tried my computer and iPad as well with the same problems...still the same. Today not only did the signal continually drop and attempt reload but the sound would come through for a few seconds, then completely drop bringing me to the list of news topics. I tried streaming stories individually but that didn't work either. If the story played at all it dropped in a matter of seconds, picture first, then sound as well. Another big problem when the news IS streaming adequately is 2 different soundtracks playing at the same time! I use several other streaming apps and have encountered none of these problems so it's not my cable company either. I gave the app 3 stars only because the reporting is so good. The streaming aspect doesn't qualify for even 1 star.
Better than before 5/5

CBS News 5/5
By Lowly Jimson
Unintimidated by Trump, not reluctant to state facts. Good reporting by Pelley and the CBS staff.
CBSNews quality and convenience 5/5
New to app and happy to find stories I'd missed or wanted to watch again! Thanks for continuing to produce some of the best reporting available.
I Like It ! 5/5
🌏 Graphics and news work excellent and I have not seen any " Drug " ads like advertised on ABC News live at Six.
🙄 >>I am so sick of these stations that push drugs legally. It should be stopped. Drugs should be sold on private channels >not when our kids are watching TV. My grandchildren said that I should call the police because selling drugs is illegal cause thats what their Teachers tell them. <<😳
A great way to stay up to date with US news while traveling abroad! Thank you CBSN :)
By don’t waste your time!
For a major news source, one would think that this news agency would not be so repetitive. LIVE-STREAM NEWS should mean LIVE-STREAMING OF WHATS ACTUALLY HAPPENING. That can't be possible when I am seeing the same exact news repeated on a loop an hour later.
It would be nice to see fresh news as it happens at home and around the globe. I would also like for the time to be displayed on-screen.
All in all I still like the news programs.
CBS Phoenix 3/5
Like the news app.
