Too much fluff, too little news. Even worse than the previous version. No option to turn off opening animation or adjust text size. Poorly organized. Articles repeat in app. No updates on holidays and long weekends. Too many "contests," surveys and station-promoting fluff. I used this app to check the local news when I'm out of town, and it's become almost useless.

This app is a huge disappointment. No matter what I did it would not send the desired notifications. It would not even let me star items of interest. I installed and uninstalled multiple times. I can view articles on the app but no notifications. No breaking news, nothing. I have this app on my iPad and it is fine. Obviously the android version is the problem.

Although I watch CBS 8 San Diego, this app is terrible. The ads and pages jump constantly so that you can't read the articles. I understand and expect ads, but the continuous changing and popping up of ads literally move the text around, up or down as you try to read, making it impossible to follow the article. It's a shame because CBS 8 is a great news outfit. This app doesn't do them justice or any favors.
