What CBS – Full Episodes & Live TV Is

The iOS and Google Android app offers features for subscribers of CBS All Access as well as free users of the app. The free app users enjoy catching up with the latest episodes in HD from late-night, daytime, and primetime. CBS subscribers, on the other hand, get to watch exclusive original series and enjoy live streaming of local NFL aired on CBS games throughout the season. On my side, I enjoy watching full season hits such as Survivor, NCIS, and the Big Bang Theory while accessing my local CBS broadcast that includes special events such as the GRAMMY awards. The features of the IPA and APK deserve a 9.5/5.

Interface

One of the features of the app that I find convenient is the user interface. Compared to other apps in the same genre, the Google Play app for Android and App Store one for iOS seems to offer a visual design that is dramatically different. The article pages and section fonts have been simplified, and the crisp and modern fonts, as well as the larger headlines, have been combined with better line spacing so as to increase readability. The app also incorporates full-screen galleries with more dramatic imagery. On the interface, the app scores a 9.5/5.

Performance and Usability

From the relatable and straightforward interface to the myriad of features the app comes out to be quite convenient. Additionally, the tool is also easy to use and functions seamlessly without the lags that are usually witnessed in other similar mobile applications. The latest version comes with enhanced stability as well as bug fixes, so you should update to enjoy more. On usability and performance, the app scores a 9/5.

Cross-platform Use

The app is available on both Android mobile and iOS versions. The APK requires Android 4.1 and over, while the Apple version needs you to have iOS 9.0 henceforth, therefore, you can use it on Apple TV, iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone. On this crucial category, the app gets a 9.5/5.

The Verdict

Overall, I find the iOS and Android app to be a very useful clean-cut. I would recommend it to anyone who is rarely home yet would wish to catch up with their favorite TV series while on the go. CBS has got lots of insider info. Therefore, you’ll be sure of staying up-to-date with whatever’s taking place around the world. If you still haven’t installed the app, I’d suggest you get this app for all Android devices from Google Play or the one for iOS gadgets from App Store.

I’ll test your utility app for its functionality, usability and consistency. I provide manual testing on Android and iOS – the physical devices, and use emulators for other OSes.
