CBS News: Live Breaking News app reviews

  • Solid 5/5

    By Bdalton63
    Best news app.
  • Streamlined 5/5

    By IRF1404
    This is a very concise app. It loads quickly and there isn’t a lot of ad clutter.
  • So far surpasses the NBC News APP, that it makes it look like it's "up on jacks"! 5/5

    By Bird doggin it
    Just removed the AWFUL, TERRIBLE, NO-GOOD, NBC News APP, and replaced it with CBS, and only wish I had done so years ago! CBS News is timely and in a well-written, understandable format, and videos are clear and on-target! Great news coverage and up-to-the minute news!
  • Strongest news app online 5/5

    By Jw3000
    Everything about, from the 24/7 News coverage, to even the ad experience, the best there is. Period.
  • Good Breaking News App 4/5

    By Happy Email
    Very good app to get breaking news. Can quickly get top news stories & with most stories you can also watch a video.
  • Best news app 3/5

    By MayraGrimaldo Photagraphy
    I love cbslive is always available
  • Good news, but hangs up often. 3/5

    By Lowest 2
    Annoying, hang ups are to frequent, often can’t get through the first story.
  • Why? 2/5

    By Damannse
    The app still freezes, even after the 11/18 update. Grrr.
  • Barely works on Fire Tv and Apple TV 2/5

    By Pianoguy8
    Works ok on my iPhone that’s about it, just glad I don’t have to pay for it. I gave up my Dish last month. Tired of paying bills. This would have been a great app, too bad it doesn’t work well with Apple TV and Amazon fire tv.
  • Nice Update 5/5

    By acemanawc
    I’m now using the iPhone X and I must say this app by far looks the greatest on my screen. Thank you for the screen optimization. I love the new layout and how the text scrolling is ultra smooth while flow ng freely with the included captions and photos. Nice job - We’ll Done CBS!
  • One of the very best apps 5/5

    By vjjnorris
    One of the very nest accurate and up to date news sources!
  • Keeps freezing or crashing 2/5

    By Rozzybear
    I love this app! But I think after the latest update it keeps freezing or crashing on both my iPhone and iPad. Just wanted to let you know. Your news coverage qualifies as fair and balanced.
  • Keeps me updated!! 4/5

    By Suederooster
    Good way to keep up with the world.
  • Not bad; could do better 3/5

    By DJLakersfan
    Overall, this is a solid APP, though my one complaint is the constant audio issues when using the App for more than 5 minutes. Think Alvin & the Chipmunks. At first I thought it was an issue with Chromecast, but it does the same thing with the App embedded on my TV. Oh well, it free and the only news source that streams live; none of the others do. CNN expects you to pay y watch their content.
  • Crashes EVERY TIME! 1/5

    By Lab59
    On iOS 11, it crashes every time. I am uninstalling the app - it crashes and then plays two separate streams on top of each other (repeating earlier content) until the app crashes again. Also a lot of non-news designed to fill air time and reporting is very one-sided.
  • My go-to News app 5/5

    By Jazz Bob
    I like the clean, concise design. The reporting is good, & the option for live news a plus. Also nice is the ability to catch up with both the CBS Evening News & 60 Minutes features.
  • A SHAH 5/5

    By Arvind.shah
    great and latest news anywhere anytime
  • Best 24x7 video streaming and written content News App 5/5

    By Dhecksel
    Far better than the CNN App or Fox News App. More objective reporting with up to date content as well as an always available button for viewing ‘Live’ video news ( with no Cable TV login credentials required ). I had no idea they did a 24x7 ‘TV’ ( live video ) news prior to this App.
  • Excessive Adverts 3/5

    By SewHelpMe
    Weekly, watch 48 hours and 60 minutes. Initially, the adverts were not a big deal, but now they are not only excessive (average 4 commercial breaks in just the first 20 minutes, which each breack containing more and more adverts) but the streaming ads continuously get stuck and the app freezes up. To add insult to injury, after restarting the app, you have to start the item you are watching from the beginning, because if you try to scroll forward (which is very difficult on an iPhone with any accuracy), you get all the adverts which would have happened to that point all at once, starting the absurd process all over again. Now, if you want to pay $10/month, you can have an ad free world. Far as I'm concerned that's a rip off since I already pay for this channel with my service provider. On the other hand, if you watch using a broswer, there are far fewer advert breaks and far fewer adverts at each break (they don't increase in number the longer you watch). Shame on CBS. 11/10/17: Update: 48 hours full episodes are gone and replaced with ads only. Seriously, CBS?
  • God's source for the latest news updates 4/5

  • Best news app. 5/5

    By Greenruby72
    Great news. Enjoyable to watch every day. Topics are interesting and informative. Good job CBS!
  • Crashes 2/5

    By JKalman
    Since the last update half the videos don't open,the app crashes every time .
  • Cbs news app 4/5

    By kantol
    Great news—the better of the 3 networks. However, it takes forever to load on my iPAD and I frequently just give up.
  • Solid, But With Annoyances 2/5

    By David B. Parker
    I 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.
  • There When I Need It 5/5

    Whenever I want to know the latest news in these ever changing times I tap the icon.
  • Nice for the geezers 4/5

    By bazootoo
    I always forget something on cbs and this app saves my butt every time . It’s been good for me.
  • Best free live streaming news app available 5/5

    By Pastor Bob PTWM
    Kudos to CBS News. I so appreciate being able to have immediate access to current events in real time without having to pay some cable or satellite company for the privilege of seeing what’s going on the world around us. Shame on the other networks for limiting access to their news to cable/satellite subscribers only. I’ve tried FOX News, CNN, and ABC and have removed the apps from all my electronic devices.
  • Great App fluid interface 5/5

    By GP0P
    One of the best news apps I’ve used, works just great.
  • Love CBS app. 5/5

    By Taken521
  • This is phenomenal! 5/5

    By fitmelissa
    Thank you so much, CBS. As a result of your new app and news website, I was able to reacquaint myself with your outstanding journalism. Now CBS is the first source I turn to for all breaking news as well as to see Jane Pauley on Sunday Morning!
  • Great news! 4/5

    By Candles2far
    Love cbs
  • CBS app 5/5

    By mamasitaolson
    Great up-to-date reliable source
  • timely news .....never proofread 3/5

    CBSNews is timely, but the content is seemingly not proofread by anyone in a significant percentage of stories. Errors in spelling and grammar are rife throughout reports. CBS news has responded to my several emails with a stock answer about working to improve their product, but results are not evident. I have even suggested that stories might possibly be written by summer interns from countries where English is not their first language. I understand that getting stories out quickly might be a goal of CBS, but consideration needs to given to the quality of the efforts of reporters. Focus! Put out a better quality product. I’d welcome a response from CBSNews
  • They make it impossible to cancel 1/5

    By Jerm1622
    Can’t get in touch with customer service
  • 48 Hours App Missing With IOS 11.0 Update 1/5

    By Bwaterbabe
    The 48 Hours App, which I’d paid for, doesn’t work with IOS 11.0 and the developer has no plans to fix the APP. Very disappointing. I’d give this zero stars if I could.
  • Great news app with dynamic video 5/5

    By Dshrink
    I especially like the current political news with enough video to keep it from being boring and mundane.
  • Freezes 3/5

    By Irene789076
    Since the last update this app will freeze partway through reading an article, have to close app and reopen and hope I can get through the article the second time. Very annoying, hope it is fixed soon because it was a great app before this
  • Stories don’t load 1/5

    By GDH1676
    Even with the update the only thing that loads is the photos, click for link to stories and it just spins
  • At the Right Time 5/5

    By Ridiculous Radical
    I'm able to get the news at the right al the time with the app. This is the best news app ever
  • CBS News 5/5

    By lucky gramma
    This is the BEST News app! I couldn't be without it!
  • Trustworthy 4/5

    By Mcduff71
    When I want to find out what’s really happening, I go to CBS news. Their reporting is clear, understandable and concise. They don’t ramble or sound threatening— just the facts. They can’t be accused of fake news ever.

    By Jayhawks Rule!
    I truly love the layout of this app. It's very easy on the eyes and quite consumption worthy. It looks fantastic on my new iPhone 6s Plus! I go to this app first for my news updates!
  • Great News Format! 5/5

    By JS in Denver
    Thank you CBSN for a great way to get my news updates every day. The format is so easy and organized. I appreciate the terrific reporting. Keep up the good work!
  • CBS 5/5

  • Great content 5/5

    By Dspinwin
  • CBS News 5/5

    By BAB#1
    This channel isvery informative just like on television. Just started having it on my I Pad and I like it first thing in the morning to see the latest news.
  • Good so far 5/5

    By s burt
    The news app that came with my I pad stopped working. Tried others but this so far has been the best. It has everything.
  • Just 1 (but a major) feature missing 3/5

    By AlexHoder
    App: Definitely the best news app of the big 3 networks. Content: CBSN is also the best national newscast, easy beating out their cable and broadcast competition simply because it has regular international coverage. However, there appears to be no support for picture in picture (or split view or any of the other multitasking features) on iPad. Most apps by now do, and it really is a game changer to have video play while working on something else. Add PiP support and it will be an easy 5 stars and I’ll give a more thorough review of the app and content.
