CBS local app
by IrGuyR on 2019/11/14 12:40
Too many adds to watch to get to weak content.
Where’s the TV listings?
by eeetyuioo on 2019/11/12 04:14
No tv listings. Why? Stupid.
Poor design with annoying ads
by Rei11Rei on 2019/11/07 02:48
The app requires too many clicks to get to the desired action. When ad states playing there is no way to go back to the home page. Only way is to shut down the app.

October 2019 Fires Sonoma County
by jugdhvryolbrefko on 2019/10/29 17:30
This app was the best source of news during the fires. My wife and I drove to Mount Shasta from the fires in Sonoma County Wine County. The TV has news from Medford Oregon and we were disconnected from the fire news. I’m ok with the ads. Everyone has to pay their bills. CBS too. Thank you CBS for the news updates. Today is Tuesday October 29 2019. BTW. The air is clean here in Mount Shasta.
30 seconds in I got a gaming ad!
by iOS burnsy on 2019/10/25 18:20
I click on a story and was not only taken into a gaming site...it was insisting I play the sob before I could go back to the video. Horrible ad spam malware crap!
Too many ads
by JackMehoffmaster on 2019/10/15 22:06
More ads than a spam site looking to fish you. Unprofessional. Looks like a kid made it.

Watch you for weather and news
by JumpinByJimmie on 2019/10/07 02:55
Top TV station.
Confusing
by bloodhound515 on 2019/10/06 11:51
You get a pop up about a story and when you go to The app that story is nowhere to be found. You can only see a select few stories and they aren’t always the most significant at the time.
Awesome app!
by dj.benz_304 on 2019/09/29 18:25
This app has all the local news and weather information you need. Since Cleveland doesn't have a CBS O and O, I use one of the major citys, and get news from there sources. Other then that, I love the app.
Great App
by NY Ranger Diehard Fan on 2019/09/18 19:30
I have been watching CBS 2, New York in Greece for three months, and I love the app. I prefer less buffering.

Between you and the herald by far the worst
No longer works.
by mm492 on 2019/09/16 16:29
I downloaded this app so I could watch the CBS 2 New York news if I was not home. Now that my cable company has removed this station (I live in PA), I used it much more. The last several days the news feed has not worked. I put up with the lousy one-story front page, but this is ridiculous. The website works, so it’s not the CBS feed. I tried the app on 3 different devices (iPhone and iPad running iOS 11 and iPhone running iOS 12), and none of them worked. I uninstalled and reinstalled the app. Still nothing. Please fix this! This app needs major updates and fixes as it hasn’t been updated in a year!
Lousy App
by cliffienj on 2019/09/13 17:07
When this app sends a notification to your phone and you tap on it, this app almost never takes to the story you were notified about. You then have to search for the “breaking news” item, which can be difficult to find.
Overalll
by kejcaw on 2019/09/13 15:30
This is always short on content especially weather nickname thing is dumb
Horrible
by Aland44 on 2019/09/13 14:29
This CBS app used to be good. I’d go on it a couple times each day for updates of local news and sports. Now it’s horrible. Many of the stories are just old old news. I hate the new cover page. There’s too many good news apps out there to be bothered with this one.
Terrible
by jjhenrionIII on 2019/09/10 02:03
By far the worst news app. One story on the front page. Developer of this app is incompetent. I’ll be getting news elsewhere. App deleted
9/9/2109 Update: Had enough of this lousy app and uninstalled it.
by Egadzooks! on 2019/09/09 20:09
8/27/2019: What did they do to the app? Now the news section must have a bug so the news just shows a blank page or one or two stories. The app is now useless. Update: now it has video ads that automatically play loudly when you click on a news story. Great way to get me to uninstall the app. If you like listening to local news, you will be happier buying a radio. Didn't think the app could get worse, but now the commercials are cutting off the stories. Seemingly endless, repeated commercials from the same sponsors ruin the listening experience.
Disappointed
by Rhodyguy on 2019/09/09 01:07

This app crashes so much. It’s a disappointment to say the least.
Usefulness is not here
by steede on 2019/08/31 20:44
Ever since the app was changed I find that it is useless! It will only open one story in the whole app. Whoever wrote the code for this needs to be fired!
Just ok is not ok
by imacdan on 2019/08/29 14:46

Worst news app for local news, you only list one story, which is old news I’ll rely on the other news app which has many news stories for my news apps By , going to delete
Not user friendly whatsoever
by CBS IS LAME on 2019/08/25 19:11
I have been a huge fan of CBS Los Angeles for years and really enjoyed their Facebook live coverage of breaking news (Bring back Stu to FB live!), so when they stopped live coverage on FB, I downloaded this app. IF a notification even comes through, 9 times out of 10 I go to the app and watch five minutes of commercials like an idiot before going back to facebook and watch the coverage from a competitor. Huge fail CBS, you have no idea how many fans you lost by trying to make money. Uninstalling now.
Wow
by jimmyjam617 on 2019/08/22 17:57
Why is this app so bad? Is there not a better local support for wcco? It never loads properly and it’s hard to find alerts that popped up. Half the time the weather won’t show up and it’s very difficult. There are better local apps that can keep you informed. Until the bugs are fixed and the app works somewhat your better off not using it.

Horrible app!
by Pcnc on 2019/08/16 13:55
This app is horrible! It does not show all of the current news stories, sometimes there is even a blank page. When I open the app on my iPhone or iPad, on the news sections, it shows a few stories from weeks prior. I even uninstalled and then reinstalled the app, thinking that might solve this problem, but no such luck! It would appear that this app is in serious need of an update or even an overhaul! I will be keeping this app off my devices and go with more reliable news apps!
Poorly constructed app
by GrummanA-6BN on 2019/08/12 20:47
Difficult to navigate. Stories seem hidden within others. Annoying pop up ads take over the entire screen. Waste of time. Deleted the app.
Sound
by N/A stop with the data mining on 2019/08/06 05:21
Even with phone muted sound BLASTS from every app. Disappointed
No links to shows like Facing South Florida
by DCinMiami on 2019/08/01 22:43
Does CBS4 Miami not consider Facing South Florida with Jim DeFede important? It’s not accessible in the app. Where is the search function? No help.
Poor design
by Ugggggggggggggggggggggggg on 2019/07/22 22:36
The design and layout of this app looks like it hasn’t been updated in several years.
Not a fan of the app
by Jeoux on 2019/07/17 01:12
Not a fan of the app. My opinion would be greater if there was a notification option to only get notifications when Stu is live.
Excellent
by Uncle Jr. Seawright on 2019/07/06 06:24
Great ease of use and the speed of connection and throughput is quick. Although the layout isn’t the best I’ve seen, it is navigationally friendly.

Limited news and too many "game" ads
by HDRider56 on 2019/06/24 01:21
This app lacks news substance. Very few news stories and too much human interest. And now when you click on a story you're likely at have to sit through an ad for a game first! This is supposed to be a news app!! 😡
Obnoxious, irrelevant notifications
by calgirl23 on 2019/06/19 21:51
Really annoyed by the constant breaking news notifications that are just advertisements for planned, cheesy news segments. Deleted the app.

Strange reviews
by laditski on 2019/05/25 12:17
I have been using the app for over a month, and I have seen none of the “buggy”issues that several reviewers have mentioned. The app has worked just fine for me. I guess the people forgot that this is a mobile app and that your reception quality relies highly upon your location, connection quality, and your equipment that is being used.

I for one enjoy the journalist and reporters here and this app is definitely one that I want and like any it’s depending on where you are and what signal you are receiving on what device. I’m satisfied with it and is one that I prefer to use and get accurate information about what is going on in this world
Unbelievable
by Jkevr on 2019/02/19 20:20
They actually paid someone to come up with this worthless app. Where the hell is the latest forecast? Channel 6 which is a little “too sensational”...for me, at least provides the most recent televised broadcast of the current and up coming weather. All I came up with looking for CBS 3’s, is a cartoon depicting the weather....delete comes next
Settings arent honored
by MiamiHEAT3x on 2019/02/19 13:48
I have weather alerts turned off and am still woken up early in the morning by a weather alert from the app. Why have the option to turn it off if you arent going to honor my setting selections? Program the weather alert as weather, its not breaking news, why is it still coming through every morning?

Too many false alerts
by CDMJ on 2019/01/17 22:28
This app was ok before. Not the fastest at getting news reports and reports would often sit for days (months even) so not always something new and interesting. But now they’ve started putting out news alerts from the app but it’s just self advertising for their weather reports, so many times a day now, it’s gotten ridiculous. Yes, we KNOW you have the weather, we KNOW we can see it on your app or watch on tv; we don’t need reminded multiple times a day. Alerts should only be for breaking news and not self advertising. It feels like commercials or ads interrupting my day. About ready to uninstall and just use WTAE’s app...

Woman trying to put gas in her car is not even mentioned on this site at this time after is been on the news. I live around the corner from that and I had just gotten home before that happened. I don’t know why it’s not mentioned but praying for the lady and hope she turns out to have a full recovery because that is a dangerous road and up to that area at night there are no lights and if they’re speeding it makes it even worse and so many people that ride that road are not aware of it & appears to be scared to even drive. I drive it every day at least two and three times a day & I know every crack and cranny in that road.

App seems get postings later than competitors in area. The sister stations they cover is far less than acceptable in content and coverage.
Search?
by Piket Family on 2018/10/26 13:26
Seriously, no search feature?? I guess that’s not really needed when the app only serves a few stories in each category. Who ever thought that was good functionality (or lack there of)?
Lousy App

by SanDiegoLover on 2018/09/17 08:18
San Diego County has grown to surpass many of the areas you offer service to. I tried Los Angeles, since we are between 100 and 120 from there. You are USELESS to my area. Cannot find a way to rid myself of your “service”. PLEASE remove L.A. from my iPad ASAP, and until you recognize San Diego, I have no use for your service. Thank you. J H San Diego County

Recent Update Eliminates All News Stories
by Tsjfa on 2018/07/29 12:45
The most recent update for this app has seemingly removed all content. I open the app, select a section (multiple times - why?), and there is no content. Don’t worry though, the ads still work 🙄 I thought CBS would be quick to fix this as it makes the app downright useless, but it’s been nearly 2 weeks and nothing.
Went down hill!
by Big Bruceter on 2018/07/28 17:56
The app worked fine before the recent update. Since the update, all I get now is a blank page. I wish you would go back to the way it was before the update. New and improved is not always better.
Took a bad app & made it worse
by Marian714 on 2018/07/28 10:06
KDKA Pittsburgh was the first commercial broadcast station on the planet; started in 1920. You’d think after 98 years that they’d have it together! If you want to be truly disappointed, try this app. All I get is a blank screen with titles like News, weather etc and nothing else; no news, etc. plus no radio! What were they thinking? Let’s lose all remaining customers & really upset people with the worst app imaginable?! I’m thinking any positive reviews are from employees told to do it. Geez guys, I expected better. Deleting app & switching to a competitor. After enduring countless ads & pop-ups enough is enough. Bye- bye now...

More greedy CBS BS. Ads before everything! And unstable.
by MajorHavoc on 2018/01/04 05:58
Buggy app, crashes a lot, and makes you watch too many apps. Just skip it and get your news elsewhere. Would give zero stars if I could. CBS Local: Like just about everything to do with CBS lately, the app is awful. I go to a new story to see a local NEWS VIDEO. But CBS, you greedy idiots, have to play an advertisement first. OK. The ad plays fine, and then the news story starts, and hangs about 10 seconds into the story. After a long pause, the app crashes. As usual. Bad enough, but when it relaunches to the story again, I have to watch the ad again. Seriously? Could you get any greedier? And before EVERY short news video! Give us a break from ads. But I suspect this will be a paid app soon anyway. First CBS All Access where you have to pay to stream WITH commercials. You are the only network that when one subscribes on cable or satellite, they still have to pay extra for the streaming service. You hold your channels hostage on Dish for more money, costing subscribers more. Now, ads before EVERY news video in your local app, where that video is usually shorter than the ad. Why not just come into my house and steal things while your at it? Oh, and feedback inside the app? IT STILL DOES NOT WORK! The app feedback email ALWAYS says try again in a few minutes. Seriously, are you guys for real? If you don’t want feedback, remove the button at least. App deleted!

Live streaming and contact support don't work
by 2MuchCoffee on 2018/01/12 03:07
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."
No longer works.
by mm492 on 2019/09/16 16:29
I downloaded this app so I could watch the CBS 2 New York news if I was not home. Now that my cable company has removed this station (I live in PA), I used it much more. The last several days the news feed has not worked. I put up with the lousy one-story front page, but this is ridiculous. The website works, so it’s not the CBS feed. I tried the app on 3 different devices (iPhone and iPad running iOS 11 and iPhone running iOS 12), and none of them worked. I uninstalled and reinstalled the app. Still nothing. Please fix this! This app needs major updates and fixes as it hasn’t been updated in a year!
Too many false alerts
by CDMJ on 2019/01/17 22:28
This app was ok before. Not the fastest at getting news reports and reports would often sit for days (months even) so not always something new and interesting. But now they’ve started putting out news alerts from the app but it’s just self advertising for their weather reports, so many times a day now, it’s gotten ridiculous. Yes, we KNOW you have the weather, we KNOW we can see it on your app or watch on tv; we don’t need reminded multiple times a day. Alerts should only be for breaking news and not self advertising. It feels like commercials or ads interrupting my day. About ready to uninstall and just use WTAE’s app...
Crashes regularly
by Todor on 2018/02/17 17:44
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.
Strange reviews
by laditski on 2019/05/25 12:17
I have been using the app for over a month, and I have seen none of the “buggy”issues that several reviewers have mentioned. The app has worked just fine for me. I guess the people forgot that this is a mobile app and that your reception quality relies highly upon your location, connection quality, and your equipment that is being used.
Not user friendly whatsoever
by CBS IS LAME on 2019/08/25 19:11
I have been a huge fan of CBS Los Angeles for years and really enjoyed their Facebook live coverage of breaking news (Bring back Stu to FB live!), so when they stopped live coverage on FB, I downloaded this app. IF a notification even comes through, 9 times out of 10 I go to the app and watch five minutes of commercials like an idiot before going back to facebook and watch the coverage from a competitor. Huge fail CBS, you have no idea how many fans you lost by trying to make money. Uninstalling now.
Streaming commercial
by Di 1245 on 2017/10/11 20:28
I would like to give this app a 5 star rating but I cannot. The problem is the first commercial. Sometimes it will not stream or it stops and starts. By the time I get to the end of the commercial the news cast is half done.
Horrible app!
by Pcnc on 2019/08/16 13:55
This app is horrible! It does not show all of the current news stories, sometimes there is even a blank page. When I open the app on my iPhone or iPad, on the news sections, it shows a few stories from weeks prior. I even uninstalled and then reinstalled the app, thinking that might solve this problem, but no such luck! It would appear that this app is in serious need of an update or even an overhaul! I will be keeping this app off my devices and go with more reliable news apps!
CBS Local
by geocord on 2019/02/22 21:53
I for one enjoy the journalist and reporters here and this app is definitely one that I want and like any it’s depending on where you are and what signal you are receiving on what device. I’m satisfied with it and is one that I prefer to use and get accurate information about what is going on in this world
Great news service
by lauralee1974 on 2018/05/17 10:25
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.
Awesome app!
by dj.benz_304 on 2019/09/29 18:25
This app has all the local news and weather information you need. Since Cleveland doesn't have a CBS O and O, I use one of the major citys, and get news from there sources. Other then that, I love the app.
Horrible: STILL BROKE!
by Peregrine101 on 2018/05/09 00:38
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.
CBS News WCCO
by Redriderjar on 2017/05/02 21:56
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.
Why did you discontinue the radio feature
by Alanwiad947 on 2018/07/07 10:34
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
No more radio streaming
by Roninsakura33 on 2018/07/06 17:04
I’m very disappointed that they got rid of radio streaming. I liked that I was able to turn it on and go about my business. And, since we don’t have a radio, other than my car, it was a great option. So, you lost a loyal listener - who listened to all those advertisements in between! Ahem! I hope they decide to bring it back. It was a great and easy to use feature.
Newest version crashes
by Drmich on 2018/03/19 02:28
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.
I love that you
by NoaMarie72 on 2019/03/03 05:35
You guys are so so much better than Fox News you stay on point and allow us as readers and follower to move to a new subject. You don’t force the issues. Thank you
Awful ... so sad
by Lisa is my idol on 2018/05/13 12:54
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.
Recent Update Eliminates All News Stories
by Tsjfa on 2018/07/29 12:45
The most recent update for this app has seemingly removed all content. I open the app, select a section (multiple times - why?), and there is no content. Don’t worry though, the ads still work 🙄 I thought CBS would be quick to fix this as it makes the app downright useless, but it’s been nearly 2 weeks and nothing.
News Alert, but now now
by MD Mikey on 2017/11/04 02:47
Notification for news! Cool. Click on it and oh wait, we really want you to watch the live news feed 15 minutes from now so you just see a page that shows a blank video screen. I’d prefer to see the actual news article when I click the notification.
Absolutely Worthless
by 3M by the Bay on 2017/10/20 01:44
This app has continued to give me error messages to "try again" when I attempt to move viewing from my iPad to tv. Tonight I tried just viewing from my iPad and for 15 minutes I got nothing but commercials. The news never came on, just commercial after commercial, then repeating the same commercials. Very frustrating and absolutely worthless.
I like it SOO!!! MUCH ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️
by Monster Austin Jeffery on 2017/08/13 19:15
I like because it has your location set on it and you can listen to music!!!😀😀😀😀♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️😍👏 and has latest news or live TV 📺!! CBS News TV!! And you can listen to AM Stations or FM 📻 Stations.
Wow
by jimmyjam617 on 2019/08/22 17:57
Why is this app so bad? Is there not a better local support for wcco? It never loads properly and it’s hard to find alerts that popped up. Half the time the weather won’t show up and it’s very difficult. There are better local apps that can keep you informed. Until the bugs are fixed and the app works somewhat your better off not using it.
iPad app constantly crashes
by Nucc1994 on 2018/03/29 10:26
It’s always a roll of the dice on whether not I’m going to be able to watch my local news on my iPad in the morning. I can usually watch live news on my iPhone (after and an usually a long walnut ad), but when I try to load it on my iPad, it crashes.
Unbelievable
by Jkevr on 2019/02/19 20:20
They actually paid someone to come up with this worthless app. Where the hell is the latest forecast? Channel 6 which is a little “too sensational”...for me, at least provides the most recent televised broadcast of the current and up coming weather. All I came up with looking for CBS 3’s, is a cartoon depicting the weather....delete comes next
Settings arent honored
by MiamiHEAT3x on 2019/02/19 13:48
I have weather alerts turned off and am still woken up early in the morning by a weather alert from the app. Why have the option to turn it off if you arent going to honor my setting selections? Program the weather alert as weather, its not breaking news, why is it still coming through every morning?
Took a bad app & made it worse
by Marian714 on 2018/07/28 10:06
KDKA Pittsburgh was the first commercial broadcast station on the planet; started in 1920. You’d think after 98 years that they’d have it together! If you want to be truly disappointed, try this app. All I get is a blank screen with titles like News, weather etc and nothing else; no news, etc. plus no radio! What were they thinking? Let’s lose all remaining customers & really upset people with the worst app imaginable?! I’m thinking any positive reviews are from employees told to do it. Geez guys, I expected better. Deleting app & switching to a competitor. After enduring countless ads & pop-ups enough is enough. Bye- bye now...
Disappointing
by TheBigster on 2018/07/31 02:09
It seems that each version has less functionality than previous ones. Losing the streaming of the stations was a big deal. This latest version does not even seem to deliver the basics. Hoping it will be quickly fixed or will be deleting to create more room for other apps.
Crashes
by Girlaone on 2018/04/24 11:56
App worked for the first couple of weeks. I got to watch the morning news. Now the app launches but you click on the video stream and it crashes an closes. Very disappointing
Rotation bug new 2018 feb (old bug not been fixed)
by touhid on 2018/02/08 23:48
On iphone when you keep the phone landscape rotate ---and then u turn on the app see what happens. Portrait time its ok but only landscape time the app gonna mass acpect ratios
Limited news and too many "game" ads
by HDRider56 on 2019/06/24 01:21
This app lacks news substance. Very few news stories and too much human interest. And now when you click on a story you're likely at have to sit through an ad for a game first! This is supposed to be a news app!! 😡
What happened to the written article?????!
by Mr._Ton on 2018/07/25 00:48
The app had been working fine other than it kept old old old news on the front page. Did not seem to update at all. The new app does not seem to have any written articles that I can read. Yes, I said read. I chose not to get the news by video I much prefer to read the news.
Stopped loading pages
by Dudealicious1 on 2018/05/03 03:45
Used to work fine then it just stopped loading any and all pages. Just a blank screen. I rebooted and still nothing. Running latest version on iPhone 7. Informed them about the problem but 10 hours later still nothing. I’ve given up. I’ll get my news from NBC.
NEEDS a search function
by evelyn7221 on 2018/03/14 02:19
Not going above two stars until I can search for the specific topic I’m interested in, sorry. PS: the silence during commercial breaks when I’m watching my local TV station’s feed is so creepy that I usually just end up closing the app.
Thanks for removing radio stations that I stream everyday to help me with Traffic!
by darkknight32 on 2018/07/03 20:03
One star... can’t believe they removed the ability to stream radio stations that I use every day to help me with travel to work. STUPID DECISION! Removing app since I now have no use for it. Now I don’t have to listen to stupid commercials I can just use other non-CBS apps for traffic!
Useless
by IGiveIp on 2018/07/25 12:49
I’ve had CBS local news for years on my iPhone and iPad. It has suddenly just stopped working. I deleted and reinstalled app with no results. All I get is the title of sections but no news. Useless. I give it a zero star but that’s not an option. Can’t send without nickname. But whatever name I put it says “taken, try again”
Worst app ever
by GremAl on 2018/03/18 20:12
Sit through ads 3 or 4 times and the article never appears. Being ad driven is one thing but for the article never to load is ridiculous. Or tap article of interest in the news section and get taken to something totally unrelated. Not once, not twice but every time. If I could rate the app negative stars, I’d give it a -5.
Excellent
by Uncle Jr. Seawright on 2019/07/06 06:24
Great ease of use and the speed of connection and throughput is quick. Although the layout isn’t the best I’ve seen, it is navigationally friendly.
CBS LOCAL
by anitao49 on 2019/05/13 19:04
I always get the latest news without having to wait for it on TV.
Disappointed
by Seashellhearts on 2018/07/17 11:19
The only reason I got this app was to listen to WWJ radio on my iPhone since I don’t have a radio in the house nor a TV in my room where I get ready every morning. I want to know the traffic and weather before I leave. I’m so disappointed that it’s been taken away (why?). No use for the app now.
Poor design with annoying ads
by Rei11Rei on 2019/11/07 02:48
The app requires too many clicks to get to the desired action. When ad states playing there is no way to go back to the home page. Only way is to shut down the app.
Lousy App
by cliffienj on 2019/09/13 17:07
When this app sends a notification to your phone and you tap on it, this app almost never takes to the story you were notified about. You then have to search for the “breaking news” item, which can be difficult to find.
DO NOT UPDATE THIS APP
by 15090Nancy on 2018/07/02 12:01
The most recent update July 2018 takes away the function to listen live to your local CBS station. Do not update the app to the newest version. CVS… What are you doing? I thought building business meant building customers. I guess I’ll just go to my other local station and listen to them live. Bye!
Confusing
by bloodhound515 on 2019/10/06 11:51
You get a pop up about a story and when you go to The app that story is nowhere to be found. You can only see a select few stories and they aren’t always the most significant at the time.
Watch you for weather and news

Horrible
by Aland44 on 2019/09/13 14:29
This CBS app used to be good. I’d go on it a couple times each day for updates of local news and sports. Now it’s horrible. Many of the stories are just old old news. I hate the new cover page. There’s too many good news apps out there to be bothered with this one.

October 2019 Fires Sonoma County
by jugdhvryolbrefko on 2019/10/29 17:30
This app was the best source of news during the fires. My wife and I drove to Mount Shasta from the fires in Sonoma County Wine County. The TV has news from Medford Oregon and we were disconnected from the fire news. I’m ok with the ads. Everyone has to pay their bills. CBS too. Thank you CBS for the news updates. Today is Tuesday October 29 2019. BTW. The air is clean here in Mount Shasta.
30 seconds in I got a gaming ad!
by iOS burnsy on 2019/10/25 18:20

Too many ads

This app has all the local news and weather information you need. Since Cleveland doesn't have a CBS O and O, I use one of the major citys, and get news from there sources. Other then that, I love the app.
Great App

by jjhenrionIII on 2019/09/10 02:03
By far the worst news app. One story on the front page. Developer of this app is incompetent. I’ll be getting news elsewhere. App deleted
9/9/2109 Update: Had enough of this lousy app and uninstalled it.
by Egadzooks! on 2019/09/09 20:09
8/27/2019: What did they do to the app? Now the news section must have a bug so the news just shows a blank page or one or two stories. The app is now useless. Update: now it has video ads that automatically play loudly when you click on a news story. Great way to get me to uninstall the app. If you like listening to local news, you will be happier buying a radio. Didn't think the app could get worse, but now the commercials are cutting off the stories. Seemingly endless, repeated commercials from the same sponsors ruin the listening experience.

by jimmyjam617 on 2019/08/22 17:57
Why is this app so bad? Is there not a better local support for wcco? It never loads properly and it’s hard to find alerts that popped up. Half the time the weather won’t show up and it’s very difficult. There are better local apps that can keep you informed. Until the bugs are fixed and the app works somewhat your better off not using it.

No links to shows like Facing South Florida

by Jeoux on 2019/07/17 01:12
Not a fan of the app. My opinion would be greater if there was a notification option to only get notifications when Stu is live.
Excellent
by Uncle Jr. Seawright on 2019/07/06 06:24
Great ease of use and the speed of connection and throughput is quick. Although the layout isn’t the best I’ve seen, it is navigationally friendly.
Where are the children that have died in the camps at our border
by ulkë on 2019/07/04 15:28
Many children have died in these horrid camps in Texas. What did they do with the bodies ? Not one word in ANY newspaper or on News Channel. This Moron president ..just like Hitler...... Children in cages. Just no ovens...yet .

Too many weather notifications!!!!
Limited news and too many "game" ads
by HDRider56 on 2019/06/24 01:21
This app lacks news substance. Very few news stories and too much human interest. And now when you click on a story you're likely at have to sit through an ad for a game first! This is supposed to be a news app!! 😡
Obnoxious, irrelevant notifications
by calgirl23 on 2019/06/19 21:51
Really annoyed by the constant breaking news notifications that are just advertisements for planned, cheesy news segments. Deleted the app.

Strange reviews
by laditski on 2019/05/25 12:17
I have been using the app for over a month, and I have seen none of the “buggy”issues that several reviewers have mentioned. The app has worked just fine for me. I guess the people forgot that this is a mobile app and that your reception quality relies highly upon your location, connection quality, and your equipment that is being used.

Unbelievable
by Jkevr on 2019/02/19 20:20
They actually paid someone to come up with this worthless app. Where the hell is the latest forecast? Channel 6 which is a little “too sensational”...for me, at least provides the most recent televised broadcast of the current and up coming weather. All I came up with looking for CBS 3’s, is a cartoon depicting the weather....delete comes next

by MiamiHEAT3x on 2019/02/19 13:48
I have weather alerts turned off and am still woken up early in the morning by a weather alert from the app. Why have the option to turn it off if you arent going to honor my setting selections? Program the weather alert as weather, its not breaking news, why is it still coming through every morning?

Too many false alerts
by CDMJ on 2019/01/17 22:28
This app was ok before. Not the fastest at getting news reports and reports would often sit for days (months even) so not always something new and interesting. But now they’ve started putting out news alerts from the app but it’s just self advertising for their weather reports, so many times a day now, it’s gotten ridiculous. Yes, we KNOW you have the weather, we KNOW we can see it on your app or watch on tv; we don’t need reminded multiple times a day. Alerts should only be for breaking news and not self advertising. It feels like commercials or ads interrupting my day. About ready to uninstall and just use WTAE’s app...

Accident on route 30 @ Sunoco gas station
by ufullofshit on 2019/01/08 13:04
Woman trying to put gas in her car is not even mentioned on this site at this time after is been on the news. I live around the corner from that and I had just gotten home before that happened. I don’t know why it’s not mentioned but praying for the lady and hope she turns out to have a full recovery because that is a dangerous road and up to that area at night there are no lights and if they’re speeding it makes it even worse and so many people that ride that road are not aware of it & appears to be scared to even drive. I drive it every day at least two and three times a day & I know every crack and cranny in that road.

Search?
by Piket Family on 2018/10/26 13:26
Seriously, no search feature?? I guess that’s not really needed when the app only serves a few stories in each category. Who ever thought that was good functionality (or lack there of)?
Lousy App

Recent Update Eliminates All News Stories
by Tsjfa on 2018/07/29 12:45
The most recent update for this app has seemingly removed all content. I open the app, select a section (multiple times - why?), and there is no content. Don’t worry though, the ads still work 🙄 I thought CBS would be quick to fix this as it makes the app downright useless, but it’s been nearly 2 weeks and nothing.
Went down hill!
by Big Bruceter on 2018/07/28 17:56
The app worked fine before the recent update. Since the update, all I get now is a blank page. I wish you would go back to the way it was before the update. New and improved is not always better.
Took a bad app & made it worse
by Marian714 on 2018/07/28 10:06
KDKA Pittsburgh was the first commercial broadcast station on the planet; started in 1920. You’d think after 98 years that they’d have it together! If you want to be truly disappointed, try this app. All I get is a blank screen with titles like News, weather etc and nothing else; no news, etc. plus no radio! What were they thinking? Let’s lose all remaining customers & really upset people with the worst app imaginable?! I’m thinking any positive reviews are from employees told to do it. Geez guys, I expected better. Deleting app & switching to a competitor. After enduring countless ads & pop-ups enough is enough. Bye- bye now...

More greedy CBS BS. Ads before everything! And unstable.
by MajorHavoc on 2018/01/04 05:58
Buggy app, crashes a lot, and makes you watch too many apps. Just skip it and get your news elsewhere. Would give zero stars if I could. CBS Local: Like just about everything to do with CBS lately, the app is awful. I go to a new story to see a local NEWS VIDEO. But CBS, you greedy idiots, have to play an advertisement first. OK. The ad plays fine, and then the news story starts, and hangs about 10 seconds into the story. After a long pause, the app crashes. As usual. Bad enough, but when it relaunches to the story again, I have to watch the ad again. Seriously? Could you get any greedier? And before EVERY short news video! Give us a break from ads. But I suspect this will be a paid app soon anyway. First CBS All Access where you have to pay to stream WITH commercials. You are the only network that when one subscribes on cable or satellite, they still have to pay extra for the streaming service. You hold your channels hostage on Dish for more money, costing subscribers more. Now, ads before EVERY news video in your local app, where that video is usually shorter than the ad. Why not just come into my house and steal things while your at it? Oh, and feedback inside the app? IT STILL DOES NOT WORK! The app feedback email ALWAYS says try again in a few minutes. Seriously, are you guys for real? If you don’t want feedback, remove the button at least. App deleted!

Live streaming and contact support don't work
by 2MuchCoffee on 2018/01/12 03:07
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."
No longer works.
by mm492 on 2019/09/16 16:29
I downloaded this app so I could watch the CBS 2 New York news if I was not home. Now that my cable company has removed this station (I live in PA), I used it much more. The last several days the news feed has not worked. I put up with the lousy one-story front page, but this is ridiculous. The website works, so it’s not the CBS feed. I tried the app on 3 different devices (iPhone and iPad running iOS 11 and iPhone running iOS 12), and none of them worked. I uninstalled and reinstalled the app. Still nothing. Please fix this! This app needs major updates and fixes as it hasn’t been updated in a year!

Crashes regularly
by Todor on 2018/02/17 17:44
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.

Not user friendly whatsoever
by CBS IS LAME on 2019/08/25 19:11
I have been a huge fan of CBS Los Angeles for years and really enjoyed their Facebook live coverage of breaking news (Bring back Stu to FB live!), so when they stopped live coverage on FB, I downloaded this app. IF a notification even comes through, 9 times out of 10 I go to the app and watch five minutes of commercials like an idiot before going back to facebook and watch the coverage from a competitor. Huge fail CBS, you have no idea how many fans you lost by trying to make money. Uninstalling now.
Streaming commercial
by Di 1245 on 2017/10/11 20:28
I would like to give this app a 5 star rating but I cannot. The problem is the first commercial. Sometimes it will not stream or it stops and starts. By the time I get to the end of the commercial the news cast is half done.
Horrible app!
by Pcnc on 2019/08/16 13:55
This app is horrible! It does not show all of the current news stories, sometimes there is even a blank page. When I open the app on my iPhone or iPad, on the news sections, it shows a few stories from weeks prior. I even uninstalled and then reinstalled the app, thinking that might solve this problem, but no such luck! It would appear that this app is in serious need of an update or even an overhaul! I will be keeping this app off my devices and go with more reliable news apps!

Horrible: STILL BROKE!
by Peregrine101 on 2018/05/09 00:38
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.

No more radio streaming
by Roninsakura33 on 2018/07/06 17:04
I’m very disappointed that they got rid of radio streaming. I liked that I was able to turn it on and go about my business. And, since we don’t have a radio, other than my car, it was a great option. So, you lost a loyal listener - who listened to all those advertisements in between! Ahem! I hope they decide to bring it back. It was a great and easy to use feature.
Newest version crashes
by Drmich on 2018/03/19 02:28
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.
I love that you

Awful ... so sad
by Lisa is my idol on 2018/05/13 12:54
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.

Absolutely Worthless
by 3M by the Bay on 2017/10/20 01:44
This app has continued to give me error messages to "try again" when I attempt to move viewing from my iPad to tv. Tonight I tried just viewing from my iPad and for 15 minutes I got nothing but commercials. The news never came on, just commercial after commercial, then repeating the same commercials. Very frustrating and absolutely worthless.

by jimmyjam617 on 2019/08/22 17:57
Why is this app so bad? Is there not a better local support for wcco? It never loads properly and it’s hard to find alerts that popped up. Half the time the weather won’t show up and it’s very difficult. There are better local apps that can keep you informed. Until the bugs are fixed and the app works somewhat your better off not using it.

It’s always a roll of the dice on whether not I’m going to be able to watch my local news on my iPad in the morning. I can usually watch live news on my iPhone (after and an usually a long walnut ad), but when I try to load it on my iPad, it crashes.

Program the weather alert as weather, its not breaking news, why is it still coming through every morning?
Took a bad app & made it worse
by Marian714 on 2018/07/28 10:06
KDKA Pittsburgh was the first commercial broadcast station on the planet; started in 1920. You’d think after 98 years that they’d have it together! If you want to be truly disappointed, try this app. All I get is a blank screen with titles like News, weather etc and nothing else; no news, etc. plus no radio! What were they thinking? Let’s lose all remaining customers & really upset people with the worst app imaginable?! I’m thinking any positive reviews are from employees told to do it. Geez guys, I expected better. Deleting app & switching to a competitor. After enduring countless ads & pop-ups enough is enough. Bye- bye now...
Disappointing
by TheBigster on 2018/07/31 02:09
It seems that each version has less functionality than previous ones. Losing the streaming of the stations was a big deal. This latest version does not even seem to deliver the basics. Hoping it will be quickly fixed or will be deleting to create more room for other apps.
Crashes
by Girlaone on 2018/04/24 11:56
App worked for the first couple of weeks. I got to watch the morning news. Now the app launches but you click on the video stream and it crashes an closes. Very disappointing

On iphone when you keep the phone landscape rotate ---and then u turn on the app see what happens. Portrait time its ok but only landscape time the app gonna mass acpect ratios
Limited news and too many "game" ads
by HDRider56 on 2019/06/24 01:21
This app lacks news substance. Very few news stories and too much human interest. And now when you click on a story you're likely at have to sit through an ad for a game first! This is supposed to be a news app!! 😡
What happened to the written article?????!
by Mr._Ton on 2018/07/25 00:48
The app had been working fine other than it kept old old old news on the front page. Did not seem to update at all. The new app does not seem to have any written articles that I can read. Yes, I said read. I chose not to get the news by video I much prefer to read the news.
Stopped loading pages
by Dudealicious1 on 2018/05/03 03:45
Used to work fine then it just stopped loading any and all pages. Just a blank screen. I rebooted and still nothing. Running latest version on iPhone 7. Informed them about the problem but 10 hours later still nothing. I’ve given up. I’ll get my news from NBC.
NEEDS a search function
by evelyn7221 on 2018/03/14 02:19
Not going above two stars until I can search for the specific topic I’m interested in, sorry. PS: the silence during commercial breaks when I’m watching my local TV station’s feed is so creepy that I usually just end up closing the app.
Thanks for removing radio stations that I stream everyday to help me with Traffic!
by darkknight32 on 2018/07/03 20:03
One star... can’t believe they removed the ability to stream radio stations that I use every day to help me with travel to work. STUPID DECISION! Removing app since I now have no use for it. Now I don’t have to listen to stupid commercials I can just use other non-CBS apps for traffic!
Useless
by IGiveIp on 2018/07/25 12:49
I’ve had CBS local news for years on my iPhone and iPad. It has suddenly just stopped working. I deleted and reinstalled app with no results. All I get is the title of sections but no news. Useless. I give it a zero star but that’s not an option. Can’t send without nickname. But whatever name I put it says “taken, try again”
Worst app ever
by GremAl on 2018/03/18 20:12
Sit through ads 3 or 4 times and the article never appears. Being ad driven is one thing but for the article never to load is ridiculous. Or tap article of interest in the news section and get taken to something totally unrelated. Not once, not twice but every time. If I could rate the app negative stars, I’d give it a -5.
Excellent
by Uncle Jr. Seawright on 2019/07/06 06:24
Great ease of use and the speed of connection and throughput is quick. Although the layout isn’t the best I’ve seen, it is navigationally friendly.
CBS LOCAL
by anitao49 on 2019/05/13 19:04
I always get the latest news without having to wait for it on TV.
Disappointed
by Seashellhearts on 2018/07/17 11:19
The only reason I got this app was to listen to WWJ radio on my iPhone since I don’t have a radio in the house nor a TV in my room where I get ready every morning. I want to know the traffic and weather before I leave. I’m so disappointed that it’s been taken away (why?). No use for the app now.
Poor design with annoying ads
by Rei11Rei on 2019/11/07 02:48
The app requires too many clicks to get to the desired action. When ad states playing there is no way to go back to the home page. Only way is to shut down the app.
Lousy App
by cliffienj on 2019/09/13 17:07
When this app sends a notification to your phone and you tap on it, this app almost never takes to the story you were notified about. You then have to search for the “breaking news” item, which can be difficult to find.
DO NOT UPDATE THIS APP
by 15090Nancy on 2018/07/02 12:01
The most recent update July 2018 takes away the function to listen live to your local CBS station. Do not update the app to the newest version. CVS… What are you doing? I thought building business meant building customers. I guess I’ll just go to my other local station and listen to them live. Bye!
Confusing
by bloodhound515 on 2019/10/06 11:51
You get a pop up about a story and when you go to The app that story is nowhere to be found. You can only see a select few stories and they aren’t always the most significant at the time.
Watch you for weather and news
by JumpinByJimmie on 2019/10/07 02:55
Top TV station.
Horrible
by Aland44 on 2019/09/13 14:29
This CBS app used to be good. I’d go on it a couple times each day for updates of local news and sports. Now it’s horrible. Many of the stories are just old old news. I hate the new cover page. There’s too many good news apps out there to be bothered with this one.
