Simple and it works but needs improvement 4/5
It works great. I wish it would show a small flag if the show has already been watched and also ability to create a playlist. Makes it easier to go through the videos. Thanks!

I like the app, it allows me to review stories from the week and catch up on things I missed.
Pay to Remove Ads and the Greedy Buggers insert them into the app 1/5
The title says it all. I’ll be canceling my subscription and asking for a full refund.
60 Minutes is the standard to emulate 5/5
60 Minutes has been around so long for a reason: their stories are honest and they try to find the truth in any story they are presenting. The app seems to work well for me. I have not had any problems with it.

Very Good App. 5/5
By Jimbo W. G.
Easy to use on all my devices. Good, clear hi definition picture quality. I enjoy the flexibility of watching 60 minutes anywhere.
It wasn’t broke but they”fixed” it anyway! 1/5
By Three's a Charm
I have been watching this program for ALL of its 50 years. I downloaded the 60 Minutes app as soon as it became available. Loved it. The new version STINKS! Andy Rooney would not like it either. The 60 Minutes app used to be the best on my phone.
I still tune in to the show regularly. However, sometimes life gets in the way. It was always a delight, with the earlier versions of the app, to catch those segments I missed on my iPhone. I could also preview the upcoming segments. I thought the previews disappeared, but they are apparently now just slower to load.
It seems the we now have “commercials”. At 65, I have too little time to waste on that. Plus, the user had an option to become an “All Access Subscriber” to get certain features. What’s THAT all about? Apparently, 50 years of loyalty counts for nothing at CBS. If you care about 60 Minutes, you have to put up with this NOW ANNOYING version of the app.
No More Chantix!!! 3/5
This is an iconic show and a great app. And I would give it 5 stars... But EVERY time there is a commercial break, we are showed a 60 second (which feels like 60 minutes) commercial about how to quit smoking with Chantix. We’ve NEVER seen a different sponsor and we’ve watched dozens and dozens of stories. Only Chantix!!
I don’t smoke and never have.
My family doesn’t smoke and never has.
My friends don’t smoke and never have.
Please find a different sponsor, ANY other sponsor please!
Great App 5/5
Great for watching 60 Minutes 5/5
I am so glad I found this app. When I miss an episode it’s very easy to catch up. No cable subscription required. Thank you for making a way to see the show.
60 Minutes is a great TV program!! 5/5
60 Minutes is a program that often sets the public debate. It is always interesting, fair and empathetic to those whose stories they tell. I consider myself fairly well educated and I always learn something from every segment. Your guide is, “Tell a story.” And you do, the ones that need telling, so thank you.
You folks are a national treasure!
Can't open app 1/5
By G1white night
I need someone to help me get into this program
Love this one ! 5/5
By Great Oden's Raven
I paid for the old 60 minutes app... now that’s gone and I have this poor excuse. 2x ads in 1 min segment? And no casting!!?!? Woof.
Great App 5/5
Easy and intuitive with TONS of content.
Paid premium for no ads but I have ads 1/5
By Doc Maker keeping it Verite
Please disable ads on the people who paid for the original 60 minutes app. Maybe you should do a story on your own bait and switch tactics. Emailed 60 minutes before posting this review but no response.
Good app 4/5
App works good. I like it because I can watch 60 minutes when I want and not worry about seeing on regular TV.
Garbage app 1/5
By Drawer draws
Same as above!
By kxhwye bxjs
I downloaded the app understanding that I would have to pay to watch. However the app only provides a sign in option, but not a sign up option.
Lose the advertising 1/5
When I first had the app before it was revised I don’t recall seeing any advertising. Now there’s advertising it’s pretty annoying do you know about the program. I want to back like it was before and actually I am deleting the app as it exists now I will be using it again.
Love 60 Minutes App 5/5
By Getting better all the time
The app allows me to catch up on shows I missed for 1 reason or another!
Having to watch the same 60 second ad to quit smoking each time you watch a video makes this app nearly unwatchable. Very poor user experience.
I like it. 5/5
I can watch 60 minutes on my schedule especially during certain sport season when they are delayed. Ca watch older show which is a plus.
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.
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.
