CBS News for the Android includes these (and many more) features:

• CBSN, our 24/7 streaming video news channel.
• Real-time updates to evolving news stories throughout the day with the new “quick read” feature on iPhone for more informative browsing.
• On-Demand video clip and full episodes (when available) from CBS News programs.
• Latest business headlines and market info from CBS MoneyWatch.
• Share interesting stories with your friends and family via email, Facebook, or Twitter.

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.

Recent changes:
This version now provides a setting to turn Breaking News alert notifications on or off from within the app (apologies to any users who were inconvenienced due to the lack of this setting option).

Also in this version (3.0.1):

• Improved Breaking News alert functionality overall (silent mode now an option as well).
• Expanded MoneyWatch coverage with the addition of the MoneyWatch sub-categories in an expanding menu.
• Other various bug fixes and improvements

User reviews of CBS News
The pop up ad when first opening is too distracting. OK - it's a free app, but it's an imposition on the viewer.

Really poor video quality. Would like the ability to select a higher bitrate. Otherwise, nice design, and well functioning slider ability. But really, the main thing should be the video segment!

Could look better. Notifications setting should be within the app itself. Shouldnt have to go to settings to turn off.

Great app! CBS News sets the standard for reporting hard news and I've been a fan for years. This app keeps me closer to the news. (I originally complained about forced push notifications but they've since fixed this and I'm back to being happy!)
