An Audio Nightmare

This app had the potential to be one of my favorite apps for any mobile device ... however at this time I absolutely cannot stand to listen to this app. CBS apparently has no clue what audio normalization is. Volume issues with this app are a nightmare in my vehicle.

When I did try this app out, I spent a full week trying to see how it would fare as a primary news app while I am on the road as a truck driver. The result was a constant battle with the volume control. Every time the story would change from one narration to the next, I either could not hear the speaker at all or the sound would blow my ears out.

I quickly realized that this was actually causing a major distraction in my driving. With the amount of time I was putting into the volume control, I may as well have been texting and driving or something just as dangerous.

I conclusion, I have decided to ditch this app and go back to another news app to get my news while I drive. I wish I did not have to as the other app spends more time asking for donations than actually delivering news to my ears. But frankly I’d rather put up with that than the terrible audio nightmare that is the CBS News Radio app.

When CBS hires someone who has a clue on audio normalization, I’ll be happy to return to this app.

Good News, Awful App

Awful interface that looks like a website from the late 90s. The app is all over place — sometimes it crashes, sometimes you’ll get an unskippable ad when you open it (though sometimes you won’t). Half the time it crashes when you try to download audio for offline listening.

It’s hard to believe that one of the biggest, most powerful media companies in America has an app this amateurish.

Please get this app into the 21st century and I’ll happily update my review.

Very glitchy app

First of all, the news content itself is very good, and I’ll continue to use this app even though it has a lot of issues. One of the biggest problems for me is that it will pause in the middle of a story, then another story will start playing after it resumes. Secondly, two news stories will play simultaneously after you close the advertisements during the startup of the app.
These problems have been ongoing for awhile now. For a mainstream news media outlet like CBS, you would think that they would have better app designers.
