App Reviews

  • Live streaming and contact support don't work

    By 2MuchCoffee
    The live streaming video of the newscast seems to nothing more than a frozen image of the White House. I've sat through the stupidly long California Walnut commercial three times and still the show does not stream or even appear. But to make the issue even worse, I've also tried to send an email through the "contact support" option well over ten times now. I continually get a "try again later error". Should I try a different support line to figure out why I can't contact support? I have deleted and re-downloaded the app, which is still the same version, 2.2.10. As President Trump would say, "#Sad."
  • Crashes regularly

    By Todor
    I’d say once or twice a month the app is problematic. During those times, I attempt to play a video (usually the weather report). The app crashes repeatedly. I attempt to submit a comment. The app crashes. Once the weather video crashed the app but the other videos played correctly. This app is better than coping with their website. That experience is worse. The ads tend to cause problems with the video player. That problem is more consistent than the app problem.

  • App crashes under video tab

    By Pinky Stanseski
    The app crashes when I try to play a video listed under the video tab, but plays perfectly under the news tab after I tap on the story inside the news tab.
  • Great news service

    By lauralee1974
    Not sure why all these other reviews are so bad. I love being able to watch the news live. It keeps me informed every time I click on the app. Love CBS News. Thank you.
  • CBS News WCCO

    By Redriderjar
    I have been watching this app for about five months, I like all of the information that is on this app. Brings you up to date, with real time information. Thank you.
  • Horrible: STILL BROKE!

    By Peregrine101
    Even after update, while listening to a station and you choose a news article, the radio stops. Even if there’s no video in the article. You have to swipe out of the article and restart the radio. And the app freezes a lot. What a shame. I like the news radio I listen to in the morning. I just have to read a different station’s news articles at the same time.
  • Why did you discontinue the radio feature

    By Alanwiad947
    I have been listening to CBS Local for 8 years and now I can’t listen to 94.7 FRESH fm on the app what do I need to do to listen to them again Please help
  • Newest version crashes

    By Drmich
    Newest version crashes every time I try to watch the video weather forecast. Also, I agree with another reviewer about the ads. Do I really need to watch an ad before EVERY 30-90 second short video, or when re-starting a video that crashed? And if the answer is yes, for the love of Pete, please get some new ads. I do not want to hear another word about great-tasting, heart-healthy, California walnuts.
  • Awful ... so sad

    By Lisa is my idol
    Impossible to use. It crashes upon launching any story. You usually have to wait a long time too for the video to load before it crashes too. CBS doesn’t have enough money to pay their developers to design a functional app? Another thing that I cannot handle is the Bounce dryer sheet ad before EVERY SINGLE news clip. No mixing it up with a few different sponsors, just the same painful ad with a horrible parody of a formerly good song by The Police. The WBZ app has been part of my morning routine for years now. But I have been forced to watch other area stations because of the repetitive ads. The Bounce ad has finally broken me. I will also NEVER buy Bounce again.
