  • 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.
  • Terrible

    By daveb316
    I used it for CarPlay. But after last update they took away the ability to choose what you want to listen to. Support is terrible. At some point they will probably fix it. But given the history. They will break it with an update in the future and take months to fix it again. Update - I tried it again and it just doesn’t work in CarPlay. It just will not load any content.
  • 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. :(
  • Another app dead for older IPad 2/3 users after update...

    By Marty not a unique nickname
    Older interface used to load with no issues and play radio and downloaded content with no issues... Now it won't load at all and crashes immediately. Pathetic and makes you wonder why people are switching to android tablets. DO NOT UPDATE and as far as Apple is concerned allow rollback to updates or refusal to updates so there aren't constant update number notifications on AppStore
  • Gone from CarPlay display?!

    By The_Unbeliever
    This app no longer shows up in CarPlay as of iOS 13.
  • Can’t connect

    By akampfer
    The latest version when you open it says it can’t connect to the internet. I only have 4 stars.
  • Knock, Knock! Anyone home!

    By Woodchup88
    Seriously, this app needs an overhaul! Always stops playing within a few minuets after you open the app - you must manually restart it using the Play button. To make matters worse, there is endless bragging about CBS news and all the rewards they have received, over, and over, again! Today it stopped playing after the first news report and refused to work at all - even after I restarted my iPad. Nuff said!
