2 IMPORTANT NOTIFICATIONS:
Home Screen Widget: In the interest of not delaying the release this update any longer than we already have, we decided to move the Widget to a later version. For those of you who have been using and relying on the CBS News home screen widget, please know that we WILL bring that back into the app as quickly as possible in a future update.
Breaking News Alerts: We have received a lot of feedback email regarding push notifications and asking how they can be turned off. We will be adding an option in the app settings in the next update, however in the meantime, if you tap on App Manager in the device settings, and then the CBS News app, you should see a "Show Notifications" option at the top of the app profile. Simply uncheck that box to stop receiving Breaking News alerts from CBS News.
