CBS Radio News App Reviews

  • No CarPlay

    By Zazaza73
    Doesn’t show up in my CarPlay screen
  • Horrid app

    By Racer C
    This is the worst app I have. Very unreliable in all aspects. If it wasn’t for the fact I want to listen to it, I’d delete it. They need to fire whomever wrote this, and start completely over. No updates correct any of the constant stream of problems this app has. Very surprising one of this nation’s radio stations has such a horrible app
  • An Audio Nightmare

    By Faelandaea
    This app had the potential to be one of my favorite apps for any mobile device ... however at this time I absolutely cannot stand to listen to this app. CBS apparently has no clue what audio normalization is. Volume issues with this app are a nightmare in my vehicle. When I did try this app out, I spent a full week trying to see how it would fare as a primary news app while I am on the road as a truck driver. The result was a constant battle with the volume control. Every time the story would change from one narration to the next, I either could not hear the speaker at all or the sound would blow my ears out. I quickly realized that this was actually causing a major distraction in my driving. With the amount of time I was putting into the volume control, I may as well have been texting and driving or something just as dangerous. I conclusion, I have decided to ditch this app and go back to another news app to get my news while I drive. I wish I did not have to as the other app spends more time asking for donations than actually delivering news to my ears. But frankly I’d rather put up with that than the terrible audio nightmare that is the CBS News Radio app. When CBS hires someone who has a clue on audio normalization, I’ll be happy to return to this app.
  • Won’t show up in CarPlay

    By Part Time Pilot
    And, yes, I tried deleting and reinstalling. Twice. Still won’t show.
  • Male ED commercials

    By ArtistJMC
    Far too many male ED commercials. I understand you got to pay the bills but are they the only ones paying for commercials?
  • Does NOT work with CarPlay

    By Arm5tech
    App does not show up in Apple Carplay.
  • Last update broke CarPlay support

    By cjbne
    The last update broke CarPlay support. Please fix it. That was my favorite feature of this app.
  • Good News, Awful App

    By Jack_McCoy
    Awful interface that looks like a website from the late 90s. The app is all over place — sometimes it crashes, sometimes you’ll get an unskippable ad when you open it (though sometimes you won’t). Half the time it crashes when you try to download audio for offline listening. It’s hard to believe that one of the biggest, most powerful media companies in America has an app this amateurish. Please get this app into the 21st century and I’ll happily update my review.
  • Ads in the Middle

    By Rickola25
    Silly question. There is a long CBS ad in the middle of the hourly newscast; why bother promoting CBS when we're already listening through the app? Why not just give us another minute or two of actual news?
  • Crash

    By abcdwf reviewer
    I used the app everyday, but every time I try to open recently the app crashes. Seeing other reviews, I tried to delete and reinstall, but continued to crash. Worthless real estate on my phone now.
