Is it good?

CBS Mobile has put efforts and engineered a sophisticated streaming app. What makes it successful? It is very easy to use for such a solid news app with built-in watch features. Well, as a top-performing app with an overall rating of 3.86 I can only add what people who have tried it are saying.

I’ve been using this app since it became available. I love being able to see what is going on in other cities vs just nationally. Also like seeing congressional hearings (CSPAN requires cable) and live COVID updates from the nation’s governors. That it’s free compared to other national outlets is even better as I can’t afford cable. From, for example more diverse stations like CNN, MSNBC. Enjoy anchors too, especially mornings. They also do nice news investigations available on the app. Only complaint is that it sometimes looses its feeds right in the middle of a report, sometimes for hours and switches to another city. It’s not my local bandwidth so not sure what the problem is.
I first encountered CBSN as part of PlutoTV and was impressed by the news anchors, complete coverage, presentation format, and a comfortable level of advertising support. After purchasing my first iPad last year, I was excited to find that CBSN had this dedicated app. I enjoy both the live coverage which streams very well on all public and private WiFi networks that I use. As another reviewer has said, CBS gets it. They have the right balance of access and advertising. They do not trivialize the content or presentation to some mythical short attention span streaming customer. Walter Cronkite would be proud to be associated with this team and this app.
I love the app. Love the reporting. Love being able to minimize and use the picture in picture mode (PIP). Love being able to read emails, check Facebook or Twitter, or play games while listening to the news (sometimes playing games is the best way to watch the news). Then if something comes on that I want to see, I can enlarge PIP, or even go back to app for more detail very easily. Unfortunately when I upgraded my iPad the other day, the PIP keeps crashing. It minimizes, then just disappears. I am able to use PIP in other apps. I have tried rebooting my iPad and reloading CBS News app. Please fix so I can continue loving CBS News.
