Needs work

The trouble with this app and many other local TV news apps is they will send you an alert on a breaking news story but when you click on the alert, the app doesn't open to that story but to the main screen. You then have to search for the news story which may or may not have the same headline as the alert. Fix this annoyance and the app will be excellent.

Not good.

On iPhone, when I click on an article in the newsfeed, after I finish reading the article, there’s no way to get back to the newsfeed. The tiny back arrow at the top, left side of the app rarely works. It’s SO small, it’s useless. Also, when I click on some links in the newsfeed, the app redirects me to the Safari browser, opening Safari on its own without my permission. No app should EVER redirect to another app! If I wanted to view CBS12 news and related content in the Safari app, I wouldn’t have downloaded this (CBS12 News) app in the first place. Unacceptable! Aside from the redirecting issue, this app is not iPad-friendly. This app does not support landscape-mode on iPad, making it useless to me. I’d love to see these issues fixed, as I enjoy following CBS12 news on TV and online.
