NEEDS a search function 2/5
Not going above two stars until I can search for the specific topic I’m interested in, sorry. PS: the silence during commercial breaks when I’m watching my local TV station’s feed is so creepy that I usually just end up closing the app.
Horrible: radio cuts out 1/5
While listening to the built in radio - when you open an article that has a video embedded (the video doesn’t automatically play) the radio cuts off. You can’t restart the radio until you move back to the list of news articles.
Even if you’re listening to another app’s radio, when you open a news article that has a video embedded the radio will stop playing.
The video doesn’t even auto play-which I could understand would stop the radio from playing.
2 emails to support and no response.
No longer streams 2/5
Use to be able to stream my local radio station. Just sits on connecting. Have deleted it twice to if that would work. Not. Use to listen to WWJ am every day. No longer.
The worst 2/5
Trying to view live local news but it was terrible. The same Priceline ad showing over and over and no news. The abc app works fine please you can do better
Crashes regularly 2/5
I’d say once or twice a month the app is problematic.
During those times, I attempt to play a video (usually the weather report). The app crashes repeatedly.
I attempt to submit a comment. The app crashes.
Once the weather video crashed the app but the other videos played correctly.
This app is better than coping with their website. That experience is worse. The ads tend to cause problems with the video player. That problem is more consistent than the app problem.
Rotation bug new 2018 feb (old bug not been fixed) 4/5
On iphone when you keep the phone landscape rotate ---and then u turn on the app see what happens. Portrait time its ok but only landscape time the app gonna mass acpect ratios
Notifications never go to story 1/5
EVERY time there is a breaking news story notification, this app NEVER actually takes you to the correct story if you click on the notification. It always simply takes you to the app’s home page. Also, way too many ads before videos for my taste.
Mommies and puppies 1/5
Where's the news??????
The investigative story is duplicated and has run for days as well... If you gave up, just shut it down already!!! Thanks for all the hard hitting puppy stories.
What happened??? This app is unnavigable. Fix this!!
Live streaming and contact support don't work 1/5
The live streaming video of the newscast seems to nothing more than a frozen image of the White House. I've sat through the stupidly long California Walnut commercial three times and still the show does not stream or even appear.
But to make the issue even worse, I've also tried to send an email through the "contact support" option well over ten times now. I continually get a "try again later error". Should I try a different support line to figure out why I can't contact support?
I have deleted and re-downloaded the app, which is still the same version, 2.2.10. As President Trump would say, "#Sad."
Great app but buffering is annoying but love the app other than that .The music is great. Please make it better. It is still great music but still needs bugs worked out! Still needs a little work! But I love the music! Still love the music! Needs a little work!!Great app but still needs work! Needs more work and bugs worked but I love the music!
More greedy CBS BS. Ads before everything! And unstable. 1/5
Buggy app, crashes a lot, and makes you watch too many apps. Just skip it and get your news elsewhere. Would give zero stars if I could.
CBS Local: Like just about everything to do with CBS lately, the app is awful. I go to a new story to see a local NEWS VIDEO. But CBS, you greedy idiots, have to play an advertisement first. OK. The ad plays fine, and then the news story starts, and hangs about 10 seconds into the story. After a long pause, the app crashes. As usual.
Bad enough, but when it relaunches to the story again, I have to watch the ad again. Seriously? Could you get any greedier? And before EVERY short news video! Give us a break from ads. But I suspect this will be a paid app soon anyway.
First CBS All Access where you have to pay to stream WITH commercials. You are the only network that when one subscribes on cable or satellite, they still have to pay extra for the streaming service. You hold your channels hostage on Dish for more money, costing subscribers more. Now, ads before EVERY news video in your local app, where that video is usually shorter than the ad. Why not just come into my house and steal things while your at it?
Oh, and feedback inside the app? IT STILL DOES NOT WORK! The app feedback email ALWAYS says try again in a few minutes. Seriously, are you guys for real? If you don’t want feedback, remove the button at least.
98.5 the sports hub? 1/5
Why did you remove 98.5 the sports hub from the App?
Mostly old news 2/5
This would be great if I had only limited access to this app, and no other news source! Too much old, stale, moldy news.
Great Coverage 4/5
Just found this app will continue to use it.
Traffic Map Still not fixed. 1/5
By MN Rockstar
WCCO NEEDS TO BE FULLY SUPPORTED. Not just CBS Minnesota. Develop CBS TWIN CITIES. No unsupported functions/glitches. It’s 2017. Mpls/St Paul is a major market.
Second call to fix the app 1/5
By JBF 71
Since the most recent update, the app kicks off after about 10 minutes and continues to kick off. It is very unreliable. .
Where is WBZ RADIO??? 1/5
Had to delete app as WBZ radio is gone. Sad!
WBZ Radio Boston missing! 1/5
The CBS Local Boston no longer has WBZ 1030 radio!!!!
Can’t listen to the game 1/5
Downloaded for the specific purpose of listening to the Falcons/Seahawks, which the 92.9 website promised I could do.
THAT. IS. A. LIE.
No I can’t listen to the game and I can listen to anything. App is whack. Don’t lie to me.
To post this review it is going to force me to give it at least one star. Truthfully, I give it negative seven stars
Wbz won’t stream! 2/5
Wbz Boston will not stream anymore for some reason. All my other favorites are fine, but that one won’t play and it’s really the only news station I listen too. Very bummed!
Radio turning off when Phone Screen turns off 2/5
I have been listening to CBS Local for seven years and I’ve never had a problem until I updated the app today November 14, 2017 and now When the screen turns off my music stops playing
Use it daily 2/5
Once CBS Radio stations are sold and not present on the app. I won't need it anymore and will delete it.
Lots of errors 2/5
Couldn’t get in any news in the app. Couldn’t even contact support center. Please fix it.
News Alert, but now now 2/5
By MD Mikey
Notification for news! Cool. Click on it and oh wait, we really want you to watch the live news feed 15 minutes from now so you just see a page that shows a blank video screen.
I’d prefer to see the actual news article when I click the notification.
Absolutely Worthless 1/5
By 3M by the Bay
This app has continued to give me error messages to "try again" when I attempt to move viewing from my iPad to tv. Tonight I tried just viewing from my iPad and for 15 minutes I got nothing but commercials. The news never came on, just commercial after commercial, then repeating the same commercials. Very frustrating and absolutely worthless.
Need to fix 1/5
Every time I get a alert I click and nothing shows. Then when I go into a app video freezes, or don’t even start
Ads Ads Ads Ads Ads Ads Ads 1/5
Every freaking video has an over 1 minute ad every time. DELETED. I'll stick to FOX News.
Streaming commercial 3/5
By Di 1245
I would like to give this app a 5 star rating
but I cannot. The problem is the first commercial. Sometimes it will not stream or it stops and starts. By the time I get to the end of the commercial the news cast is half done.
“Breaking News”? 2/5
I don’t like getting “breaking news” alerts about how the Steelers are gonna do this week and although it’s sad, I don’t think that Tom Petty’s death is “breaking news”. If I get one more petty, semi-interesting alert labeled as “breaking news” I will remove this app.
I just have to delete this app because it stop loading any info on Home and News that pop on my screen never opened...
Worst App Ever 1/5
Whoever thought this was a good idea was wrong. Deleted app after several attempts to customize for my local station. Wish the old app still worked.
Too many repeated commercials 1/5
If you like listening to local news, you will be happier buying a radio.
Didn't think the app could get worse, but now the commercials are cutting off the stories. Seemingly endless, repeated commercials from the same sponsors ruin the listening experience.
Not enough cities 1/5
This app only lists locations in less than half the states. The closest city "near" me is over 3 hours away!
Unless you live one of the top 20 population centers I doubt it will be of any value to you either.
I can open their website and search for information quicker than their app. I've tried to contact their "support" but always get "Error please try agin in a few minutes". This app is worthless, don't download!!!
Bummed because of Bounce 2/5
By Lisa is my idol
There are lots of glitches that I can tolerate.
One thing that I cannot, is the Bounce dryer sheet ad before EVERY SINGLE news clip. No mixing it up with a few different sponsors, just the same painful ad with a horrible parody of a formerly good song by The Police.
The WBZ app has been part of my morning routine for years now. But I have been forced to watch other area stations because of the repetitive ads. The Bounce ad has finally broken me.
I will also NEVER buy Bounce again.
By Milly reed
Opens the wrong story all the time. Very annoying.
By problemchild 19642012
Have this app and radio.com which are both sponsord by you and yet can't get fix my password on the other one can't send you a message on cbs local . Need to fix both
CBSDFW - blank screens 1/5
Yes, I asked HELP and was told to update app - which was current. I verified my wifi was working well and turned it off to give 4G a chance. Blank screens. Therefore, the app is of no value to me and I finally remembered why I stopped using it long ago.
I like it SOO!!! MUCH ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️ 5/5
By Monster Austin Jeffery
I like because it has your location set on it and you can listen to music!!!😀😀😀😀♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️😍👏 and has latest news or live TV 📺!! CBS News TV!! And you can listen to AM Stations or FM 📻
No News 1/5
Blank white screen. App doesn't load onto iPad2.
Doesn't EVER link from the notification to the actual story that you've just been notified on, they're now playing some commercial at you the second you go to the app, and I can NEVER find the story the notification alerted on.
By Disaster scott
After Listening to the Two Billionth Commercial for Kars for Kids I will never listen again 1/5
Awful. The only thing they broadcast are Kars for Kids commercials. I am DONE!!!
Hasn't worked for two days. Sent email....got no response. I've deleted app and reload three times. That's it....deleted for good.
Waste of time 1/5
This app is a waste of time. The app crashes and the headlines are months old! Just read that Bebe will be closing their stores... it is July and the story date is March 2017! Find your news elsewhere!
Sometimes radio stations will get stuck on a loop of the same ads. I turned it on before taking a bath and got stuck listening to 30 mins straight of ads.
Works for me 4/5
Better then most, updates frequently
This app is very unreliable 2/5
This app used to work very well, but for about the past year I have to delete it and download it again every couple of months because it will play endless WCCO commercials instead of the actual programming. It's VERY annoying. I would rather it would just stop working instead of seeming to work while not really working. I had to delete it again today (6/25/17) and reinstall it.
Tried to use it for traffic. It doesn't have anything other than the 95s
There's nothing local here 1/5
There's nothing local I live near Kansas City and it calls St Louis (230 miles away) local. We have a CBS affiliate in our community, why do we want to hear about St Louis?
