Lots of Old News 1/5
App seems get postings later than competitors in area. The sister stations they cover is far less than acceptable in content and coverage.
By Piket Family
Seriously, no search feature?? I guess that’s not really needed when the app only serves a few stories in each category. Who ever thought that was good functionality (or lack there of)?
Lousy App 1/5
By Kyoto cate
I just downloaded this app, despite the poor reviews. Endless advertising and bad links. As soon as I share this review, I will be deleting the app.
Great video updates in SF 5/5
Love the twice daily video update in the app and on Alexa. CBS makes awesome local news.
By tech support user
Watch a 30 second advertisement just to watch 15 second news story. Uninstalled on the first article. Done with in 90 seconds
Deleted this app 1/5
I deleted this app because it’s useless without radio streaming. I also deleted my other CBS apps since none of them do me any good now.
Useless in San Diego 1/5
San Diego County has grown to surpass many of the areas you offer service to. I tried Los Angeles, since we are between 100 and 120 from there. You are USELESS to my area. Cannot find a way to rid myself of your “service”. PLEASE remove L.A. from my iPad ASAP, and until you recognize San Diego, I have no use for your service. Thank you.
San Diego County
Old news 1/5
Site still shows 2 month old news articles.
It used to have radio so you could listen to other cbs cities but now it’s gone
Channel 4 boston. 4/5
By kumquat 1234
I enjoy this app. The news is important to me , and I like that I can watch it on the go. It is always clear and easy to use!
Latest Version Is Downgrade In Functionality 1/5
I am a blind user of VoiceOver for iPad and iPhone. CBS Local is now largely inaccessible. I cannot find or listen to radio stations in Chicago: my city of choice, nor can I even contact the developer for support. They've made this worse.
News is 4 months old- this app is outdated
Just alright 2/5
It was a lot better when you could access the radios sites like news 88 1010 wins and the fan
It seems that each version has less functionality than previous ones. Losing the streaming of the stations was a big deal. This latest version does not even seem to deliver the basics. Hoping it will be quickly fixed or will be deleting to create more room for other apps.
Just deleted the app 1/5
Latest update took it from meh to non functional doesn’t work at all on iPad
DFW non-present news 2/5
By TJ T2
Used to be the best DFW news source but lately the local news is completely unavailable.
Recent Update Eliminates All News Stories 1/5
The most recent update for this app has seemingly removed all content. I open the app, select a section (multiple times - why?), and there is no content. Don’t worry though, the ads still work 🙄 I thought CBS would be quick to fix this as it makes the app downright useless, but it’s been nearly 2 weeks and nothing.
Doesn’t work anymore 1/5
About 3 weeks ago this app quit working. It shows the categories but there’s nothing there. I’ve sent them 2 emails about this issue but apparently no one cares.
Went down hill! 1/5
By Big Bruceter
The app worked fine before the recent update. Since the update, all I get now is a blank page. I wish you would go back to the way it was before the update. New and improved is not always better.
Took a bad app & made it worse 1/5
KDKA Pittsburgh was the first commercial broadcast station on the planet; started in 1920. You’d think after 98 years that they’d have it together!
If you want to be truly disappointed, try this app. All I get is a blank screen with titles like News, weather etc and nothing else; no news, etc. plus no radio!
What were they thinking? Let’s lose all remaining customers & really upset people with the worst app imaginable?!
I’m thinking any positive reviews are from employees told to do it.
Geez guys, I expected better.
Deleting app & switching to a competitor.
After enduring countless ads & pop-ups enough is enough. Bye- bye now...
CBS Local Mpls Mn ! I Rate This Horrible ! A 0 1/5

Awful app 1/5
By .-! ()
Lousy, worst ever!
Lakeville Danny 1/5
By Lakeville Danny
This is crap! Does not work on iPhone or iPad. Screens are blank, but of course there are ads. But, no news or content. Have deleted and reinstalled 3 times with same result. I would hate to start using the ABC, NBC or FOX app.
CBS take a hint 1/5
Just ditched this. When are the IT weenies gonna get some brass b#%} and tell the suites to LISTEN to people, to realize that you piss off your net base in the long run you lose.
I’ve had CBS local news for years on my iPhone and iPad. It has suddenly just stopped working. I deleted and reinstalled app with no results. All I get is the title of sections but no news. Useless. I give it a zero star but that’s not an option. Can’t send without nickname. But whatever name I put it says “taken, try again”
CBS local 1/5
Total trash. 0 stars me."
What happened to the written article?????! 1/5
The app had been working fine other than it kept old old old news on the front page. Did not seem to update at all. The new app does not seem to have any written articles that I can read. Yes, I said read. I chose not to get the news by video I much prefer to read the news.
Doesn’t open! 1/5
App never opens any sections
App not working 1/5
Your app was okay. But since it was updated, it is not working! Only thing that shows up are ads, totally useless! And, yeah I went to app support, which informed me I was using about of date app! Your so-so app was working before the update! 🤬
CBS local 1/5
Won’t load 1/5
Try to see the news and, nothing!
Last week the news was not updated for several days. Now the news (or any topic) does not display at all. The support function does not respond.
Update doesn’t work 1/5
The update no longer pulls in any news or info. Completely useless until it’s fixed. Had to download another news app until this is fixed.
Doesn’t work at all 1/5
I launch the app and no matter which sub heading I choose, I get nothing but a clickbait ad. No news, no sports, just clickbait ads with no news content. This app is very poorly designed.
Zero Value 1/5
This app truly provides zero value. It hasn’t worked for three days now. When it was working, the layout of the app was confusing.
Your new update is absolutely garbage! Nothing loads. You’re suppose to be the most watched news station in MN?
Kdka website very poor. Needs upgraded.
Nothing there 1/5
This App has no content. I click on news and get a blank screen. Same for all other selections like blog entertainment weather etc. The old version was great and I preferred it to the other ones out there.
This is terrible 1/5
By Lake Guy 101
Bring back the previous version. At least it worked!
The only reason I got this app was to listen to WWJ radio on my iPhone since I don’t have a radio in the house nor a TV in my room where I get ready every morning. I want to know the traffic and weather before I leave. I’m so disappointed that it’s been taken away (why?). No use for the app now.
Ruined it 1/5
By WBBM fan
Bring back radio. Deleting the app.
By WWJ listener
It is very disappointing that the app no longer allows one to listen to the local CBS affiliate. No reason to even use the app anymore which is why I deleted it from my phone.
New version useless 1/5
The only real value of this app was the ability to listen to your local stations and now that’s gone. You would think most media outlets would look for a way to increase their audience, but apparently some genius at CBS has found a way to reduce it.
Zero stars without streaming radio 1/5
Sad. I will be deleting the app. No use for it without the streaming radio. I used it all the time while traveling.
No more local radio ! 1/5
Well with no more local radio then there’s absolutely no reason to even have the app. And they have no explanation! So delete app and don’t even bother to download . Totally useless
