I wish ABC & NBC, CNN, etc. were as good as CBS! I love the fact that I don't have to have an internet provider because THAT is what I'm trying to get away from! Internet was costing me over $125 a month! On a limited income, I can't afford to pay that much! With CBS All Access, I can watch my favorite channel for a drop in the bucket! I Couldn't be happier. Thank you CBS.
This USE too be my favorite app..before all the commercials. Today I got up at 7am turned on the app and turned it off three times due to ads and news articals like 10 minutes spent on growing watermelons.. Great info, but much bigger fish to fry. If you like commercials and unnessesary news you have found a great app.. NOT WHAT IT USE TO BE AT ALL.
There are SO. MANY. ADS. And that wouldn't be so bad, if they weren't literally the same ones over, and over, and over. And, while it does seem to be live breaking news, it is on a loop. So you do end up watching the same things over and over, if you tune into it more than once every 24 hours. That said, I can't find any other news app that lets me just put it on and plays live stream while I cook, etc. Until I do, this is my go-to for what's going on in the world.
I like the notifications provided by the CBS News app because they do not bombard me with trivial news stories. However, the news stories provided through the widget are useless. The widget design is OK, but it provides only 3-4 stories that are not major news topics. Keep the widget format, but try to improve the substance.
I use this app primarily to watch CBSN live stream. Unfortunately, the live stream element of this app breaks down constantly during commercial breaks, requiring the app to be restarted in order to continue streaming. Also, pop up adds for play store can cause app freezing and or stream failure. Point and case: the news is great... ads not so much. If the ads problem got corrected... this app would be tolerable. I'm not saying remove the ads, that's what pays for the free news cast... but the ads shouldn't make news viewing a pain in the ___. /2¢
Please add the ability to be able to move the App to the SDcard. Please add chromecast support to the whole app (right now cast is only support it in live stream videos). Also, please, can we see videos in portrait mode too (no only in landscape mode). Thank you.
