The app now also includes a “Quick Read” feature in categorized news headline lists, more video offerings from CBS News programs, expanded in-depth coverage for developing stories, business headlines from CBS MoneyWatch, and breaking news notifications.

Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 7.0 or later, CBS News 3.0 is available now on the App Store for free.
