I trust CBS, but the app needs improvement
If there is a way to adjust font size, I haven't figured it out yet. I will try to read an article and the edges are cut off because the font is too big; cutting out words of the article. Inconsistent feel sometimes from one article to next with execution of how scrolling works, i.e. some articles scroll fully from top to bottom while others lock top picture in place and you scroll the wording in the article. Overall, I appreciate CBS. App could use some tweaking. It is on the verge of being great, however
Ok content; app is crap.
Sometimes the app goes unresponsive. Others, I have to click 'more articles' four to six times for it to load only a single article. Sometimes loading more articles only loads multiple duplicates of exporting articles.
Crashes when you click 'other' in settings.
In the middle of every article there is some sort of weird out of place description. For instance, one article has 'CBS' at the top of every fourth paragraph. Another just randomly says '19 photos' and another says 'play video politics.' They seem to be meta tag descriptions, but in these articles there are no photos or videos.
Now some articles are rendering with text so big it goes off the screen. Rebooting etc doesn't work. Lowering my rating to the lowest possible.
This app needs a notification sound
This app doesn't have notification sound and it needs one!
