Settings arent honored 1/5
I have weather alerts turned off and am still woken up early in the morning by a weather alert from the app. Why have the option to turn it off if you arent going to honor my setting selections? Program the weather alert as weather, its not breaking news, why is it still coming through every morning?
No Content 1/5
There is almost no news or anything worth reading
By KC Norristown
KYW 1060 was the best feature on this app. Why’d you get rid of it? Dumb.
Rating This App 5/5
By Grand Daughter in Brooklyn
Love this app. My grand daughter lives in Brooklyn and I live in Maine. Lets me check on a What’s going on in NYC. I rate this app a “5”
CBS Local-KPIX 5 4/5
Informative app that reports stories meaningful to San Francisco residents as well as the greater Bay Area. There should be a Twitter link to serve app users especially for the video articles.
Live news ? 2/5
So i can’t watch live news on here ?
Too many false alerts 1/5
This app was ok before. Not the fastest at getting news reports and reports would often sit for days (months even) so not always something new and interesting. But now they’ve started putting out news alerts from the app but it’s just self advertising for their weather reports, so many times a day now, it’s gotten ridiculous. Yes, we KNOW you have the weather, we KNOW we can see it on your app or watch on tv; we don’t need reminded multiple times a day. Alerts should only be for breaking news and not self advertising. It feels like commercials or ads interrupting my day. About ready to uninstall and just use WTAE’s app...
Great job CBS Best Local News App
Accident on route 30 @ Sunoco gas station 2/5
Woman trying to put gas in her car is not even mentioned on this site at this time after is been on the news. I live around the corner from that and I had just gotten home before that happened. I don’t know why it’s not mentioned but praying for the lady and hope she turns out to have a full recovery because that is a dangerous road and up to that area at night there are no lights and if they’re speeding it makes it even worse and so many people that ride that road are not aware of it & appears to be scared to even drive. I drive it every day at least two and three times a day & I know every crack and cranny in that road.
Misleading app 1/5
I thought I could watch a few TV shows on this app, but no.
There is no way to cast to ChromeCast 1/5
Never timely 1/5
Same articles have been on here for days and days despite new and important happenings that should be posted. Very limited in scope.not impressed.
No Radio 1/5
My radio station said “get the app to listen”. Wanted to listen to a short featured program while at the airport. No radio available on this app. Very disappointed. Will delete from phone.
Too many repeated commercials 1/5
Update: now it has video ads that automatically play loudly when you click on a news story. Great way to get me to uninstall the app.
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.
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

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!
