Pros and cons of CBS News: Live Breaking News app for iPhone and iPad

CBS News: Live Breaking News app good for

This is the first news app I go to when I get home to catch up on what happened during the day. Easy to navigate, and great reporting. Plus, you get Charlie Rose.
First app for news I have added to my phone. So far the lay out is nice and easy to move through. Always preferred cbs on the television and hope you cover local, national and world news.
I am middle-age and, finally taking interest in politics, CVS application is really showing me the way to understand get interested and, most of all, really be informed on the daily headlines. Hats off to showing a newcomer even a 51-year-old man how to really get your teeth sunk into the daily events as well as up to the moment news stories.
Im really glad to have found CBSNews app!!! I love the live TV, radio and of course the written news reports!
CBS app has become my favorite source for news on iOS. A very credible source on many topics. And I especially appreciate the ability to watch live TV streams. Kudos to the folks at CBS.
I have many news apps and news sources. Some I have had to turn off notifications and others I had to delete due to the bombardment of notifications. My CBSNews app is just right and a lot more professional in lieu of a bunch of giggliers and ranters taking up my time. Thanks CBS and youll thank them too.

Some bad moments

I like CBSN, but this app stinks. Theres no way to see a live video schedule. The images on the main page never load. Theres no way to watch a whole show, like "CBS This Morning". It feels like a beta version of an app, not a professional release.
I am a huge fan of CBS, the morning show, evening news, Sunday mornings, 60 mins etc. Top class coverage, real news less fluff. They all have great chemistry, and not as sensational like the other big news networks. HOWEVER, the other networks (BBC & CNN) have far superior Apps. Time for CBS to tune this up, and match the excellent TV coverage. I expect you to be tops on the web too!
Sometimes the ads cover the last part of the article and you cant read the full story. Lately, when you go into the story, you only see the ads normally shown at the end of the story, and the story is missing. I finally figured out who to email, but nothing has been done.
I was hoping I would be able to view all of the different CBS news shows and pick the one I wanted to watch. Mainly Sunday Morning.
Seems to be a lacking of breaking news but the stories are insightful and seem to be more of a script of the nightly news than bullet points of other news sites
Accurate, timely and resourceful news app. Couldnt do without it for my news source!!!
