  • Very glitchy app

    By ballz54
    First of all, the news content itself is very good, and I’ll continue to use this app even though it has a lot of issues. One of the biggest problems for me is that it will pause in the middle of a story, then another story will start playing after it resumes. Secondly, two news stories will play simultaneously after you close the advertisements during the startup of the app. These problems have been ongoing for awhile now. For a mainstream news media outlet like CBS, you would think that they would have better app designers.
  • Terrible app that should be much better

    By kzqwz
    Developers: Start over from scratch and make a good app. For one thing, there is no way to pause or stop play, even by minimizing the app. There is no way to close it, except by opening an app like Tunein and playing something. The most recent broadcasts are not available, and usually only one is. It is absolutely terrible and reflects very poorly on CBS.
  • Auto-Play Broken

    By Tox Uthat
    When opening this app, the auto play opens to two simultaneous audio streams. Unusable. I would like there to be a clear setting in the CBS News Radio app to auto-play only the hourly news update on app launch / alarm clock wake-up. Is there a way to enable this?
  • CarPlay is a mess!

    By jgrnt1
    I’ve used this app in my car via CarPlay to get the hourly news and half hour updates. Though a bit buggy, it’s generally worked for quite a while. It has not worked properly since iOS 15. I can get the live feed, but all the recorded news shows as blank. It’s not that it won’t play. The CarPlay app doesn’t even show the podcasts. They are still on the iPhone app and will play from there, but I don’t access my phone while driving. That’s what CarPlay is for.
  • Glitches

    By Cjneg
    Where to start. Takes forever to load and at times won’t connect to internet. Podcasts won’t load properly. Downloaded podcast will not play. I NEED THIS APP FOR CLASSROOM USE. I have used KCBS for 35 years and I am now having to use the ABC news app as a replacement. PLEASE UPDATE.
  • Hot mess

    By Jimmyjoejeeter
    I read the negative reviews from years ago and thought, “Well they must have fixed it by now.” Nope. On the iphone once you open it it plays news radio, the off switch doesn’t work, so you have to swipe it off your screen to turn it off. Oh,and the ads are intrusive. That’s as far as I got before deleting it.
  • Spying on you!

    By comstock100
    When I have copied something from the notes on my phone to the clipboard and then open the CBS News Radio app, I get a notification saying that CBS News Radio has pasted what I had on my clipboard. Why would this app need to know what anyone has on their clipboard??
  • Cuts out

    By Ydoweneedanickname
    App constantly cuts out n stops working
  • Very buggy

    By DSM Mike 0311
    There is great material but it’s so buggy I don’t use it often. Ads and stories run at the same time or multiple stories run at the same time. Stories stop abruptly. No consistency in volume. It was much better as part of the old app. This needs fixed badly.
  • Poor quality app

    By Racer C
    Unless I’m at home or some other high speed portal, the refuses to fully load. There are many other buggy issues with this which makes it difficult to listen to the top and bottom of hour newscasts. But these problems have been going on for years, so it shows me CBS just doesn’t care. :(
