Always able to share news stories as soon as I see them 5/5
I enjoy sharing great news stories and this app is always current. When I watch the morning news I can share it right away.
Overwhelming "meh" 2/5
Echoing what has already been posted - 3 minutes of commercials for every 2 minutes of reporting. Timeline at the bottom repositions itself so it's difficult to read previous headlines. However, since I like to listen to news streams and occasionally watch a story, there aren't that many alternatives.
Great app! 4/5
Easy to use and great content!
Quick check 5/5
A quick way to check on news while on my iPhone.
Quick fast news knowledge during your day 4/5
News when you want it
I love this app. I'm able to put my earphones in at work and listen to live news!! Helps me keep up with the times!
Great news 5/5
Love the CBS morning show. The app is the same quality
Great resource 4/5
I'm now using the App every day to read and listen to "real news". I really appreciate it. My only issue is if I try to do something else on the phone while listening to the live stream, it immediately cuts off. It's quite annoying. This doesn't happen with NPR.

I like the free part of this news app. No third party needed. The news is presented better than CNN because it isn't blatantly anti Trump for some of the reporting. 👍🏻
Ok news 3/5
It's one of the only ones that doesn't crash all the time. I tried others and they wouldn't load. Might be my iPod, but hard to find one without clitches. Only had this a few days as it's difficult to read about the new embarrassment of a president and the insane clown posse backing him up.
Succinct and Accurate 5/5
Always in step with my current news interests.
It's cool, but kept crashing today. Probably needs an update.
Clean and easy to use 5/5
Clean and easy to use
It's a good app and they should tell you what you should think about the news not let you decide. The longer I watch it the more commercials are getting in a be almost like commercial 📺 TV. Need to incorporate Comcast in their app also not use the second party Comcast.
Great News Source 5/5
Love CBS NEWS. I especially love their live feature. Keeping me updated on "All that matters"
Like this app 4/5

I like the notifications of current events
Great News App 4/5
Probably my favorite of all the major networks. A few less commercials when navigating form one news report to another would be nice. I use it on both mobile and Apple TV. I don't always agree with points of view and such but nothing new here.
Lotta ads. Love the print. Concise.
Great, live news and journalism that is also real 5/5
I think this is a solid app for live news top class journalistic coverage that is always up to date and current. Authentic, high quality journalism enabled by simple and effective digital technology at its finest. I would highly recommend incorporating this one into whatever regular cycle of news sources, apps, etc. you rely upon. Also great on Apple TV!
Love CBS app 5/5
Really enjoying opportunity to watch some great shows
Works for me 5/5
Works for me every time
Leave Audio Volume Constant 4/5
By Thanks for update
I enjoy this app, but one major frustration is that often when a commercial starts the audio volume increases. Keep it the same please!
Real news 5/5
Especially like The Evening News
Stories often turn out to be false 1/5

I love the news, ongoing stream of information, a la carte story selection, and John Dickerson is a dreamboat

A very important part of my day! Excellent

I enjoy seeing Vladimir Duthiers weekdays with this app. Nice to be able to see CBS news videos throughout the day.
CBS fulfilling their responsibility 5/5
By David B~
I believe the networks all have a responsibility to make news available to everybody all the time. CBS does just for their public.
Well-done software & content! 5/5
One of my favorite ways to access news!
More real news than most 4/5
By Long-time birder
Most news apps are more fluff than news. This app has plenty of that, but has more actual news than most. Format is good- easy to find what you want to know
Great news app! 5/5
Thank you for this app, all I need is an internet connection and I can watch the news!
Please keep it unbiased and just stick to the facts...Much appreciated!
Good News! 5/5
By Buster Jigs
CBS provides accurate, credible reporting!
Timeline is wacky 3/5
I like the constant news reporting. That is very nice. The problem I have with this app is the moving timeline below. When you are moving the time line headlines below looking at the different news stories, it will move back to the beginning making it very difficult to select a story to watch. This is very annoying. You can barely select a story to watch. It takes me three or four tries to actually select it. Please fix this.
Commercials too long. 3/5
Commercials too long. CBSN doesn't allow me to choose the news that interests me.
Good news app 5/5
When I was a kid I'd listen to KYW 1060 to get to sleep. That led to KFWB when I moved west and for news CBS radio was my go to. Excellent app and a solid news source.
My go to news source 5/5
Keep up the good reporting. No fake news here!
First time on your website. 1/5
The first time I used the CBS app you asked for this review: 1 STAR.
I have not had time to have any knowledge of what this app does or does not do.
Best App 5/5
By Mile Walker
I really enjoy this app
Good ap 5/5
By big was
It's CBS News, so the content will be solid regardless of one's perspective.
My problem is the app itself. On my iPad, the app can be used on only three of its orientations. I cannot use it in the "upside down" orientation. Seriously? Why? Can't CBS pony up a couple more bucks to make their app work like ABC's or NBC's, or CNN's or any other serious news outlet? It really is annoying.
Forced download = desperate measure 1/5
I am having to download this app to read an article sent to me in Facebook messenger. I have no option other than to read it via the app.
Would have been happy to have the option to view in browser.
Since I do not have the option, here is a terrible review for a company so desperate for downloads.
Good App 4/5
Overall, 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
App freezes 1/5
App consistently freezes on iPhone for the past several months.
6mo later and this app still freezing on my iPhone 6.
You're the Best CBS! Thank You! 5/5
By princess italian
Thank you for a easy format to watch. I appreciate how easy it is to access your news and Thank You for being free!
Where is Scott Pelley? 3/5
CBS has been my broadcast and internet news of choice for more than a decade. Though I'm aware of the low ratings the program has endured recently, which is surprising in my view, Scott Pelley is the finest TV anchor around. With his recent departure, however, I've stopped watching. Good bye CBS news. A great website, but I'll move on.

Very good news !!!
No fake news
Good news 5/5
By Jack spacely
The only news I find myself going to. Great job.
Annoying Useful App 3/5
Annoying in the latest update to their app CBS makes it impossible to turn off Closed Caption dialog strip that continues to interrupt the visuals. I've used many news apps, and they are usually riddled with ads that interrupt the flow of watching. This one is different. Excellent video. It is not ad free but markedly better than NBC's and even BBC for current up-to-date news and fleshed-out stories. Difficult to recommend. In some ways it's even better than NPR's app.
