What's New in Version 3.2.1
Fixed issues with Push Notification crashes.
Fixed issues with live video crashing.
At one time I would have given this app multiple stars but lately unless it's a live event it's one story then many many many commercials and dead air.
The last straw came this afternoon when they covered the Donald Trump event in Iowa. There was a press conference first during which a very rude reporter was finally escorted out of the room. Later he was allowed back in and got his questions answered. After that we get the anchors weighing in on what just happened. A new hysterical female and a regular commentator just emphasized the ejection of the reporter without mentioning he did eventually get his questions answered. The rally then took place and afterwards we have the same hysterical b saying "rambling and no specifics." Really? Many specifics were mentioned especially considering that it's more than a year to the election and a year and a half to when a new president takes office. I can only speculate that a memo came down from on high to be tougher on Trump.
I used to have so much more faith in CBS News but no more.
Use at your own risk.
I suppose it has =some= use.
I installed the app and, unlike what some others have reported, seems to run. There are maybe 25 cities listed and, if you do not leave in one of them, the app has =no value= whatsoever. I tried letting the app locate a information based on the GPS coordinates. I am in Indiana about an hour and a half northwest of Cincinnati, Ohio. Your app picks Chicago, Illinois as the “local” city (Chicago is just under 4 hours away — not what I would call local.)
With about 25 cities to choose from and several states (e.g. California and Texas) having several cities in the list, it is quite likely there will not be a city from your state — let alone anything even remotely close to your location.
Traveling outside U.S. And only local news in local language available on local. tV. This app is great. Unlike other delayed newscasts from other networks, this one hasn't crashed. Thank you CBS!
