• On-Demand video clip and full episodes (when available) from CBS News programs.
• Latest business headlines and market info from CBS MoneyWatch.

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.

    Every time it update it turns on the notifications. Now I'm getting woke up by their push notifications. Junk! Uninstalling right now.

    This app is better than the previous one. The one big problem with this new one is there is no way to turn off the push news alerts. This ability needs to be added in the settings.

    No option to turn off push notifications?? Liked the old look better. Hate the huge titles and white background. Horrible "update".

    If you like being awakened by alerts at any time that you can't shut off this app is for you.

    Notifications pop up randomly for articles I don't care about and you can't turn them off.
