Fancy updates and glitches 3/5
By Sell to me
Not sure why, but the watchlist regularly shows info on a day ore more lag. Never used to do that.
Give me back the version that worked.
Viewer of Bloomberg TV 2/5
Web site does terrible job of linking to stories that appear under TOP NEWS on Bloomberg TV. Most stories that appear on TOP NEWS on Bloomberg TV are never even on the app. Bloomberg really missing out on driving new eyeballs to app bc they won’t be able to read the TOP NEWS stories they see on Bloomberg TV.
New look not so good 1/5
By Lonely Drone
New look for stocks currencies etc. is difficult to decipher. Need to add the color scheme back in. Good idea to pack in a lot of info but too overwhelming and does not communicate that info in a meaningful way. Perhaps I am missing it however is there an option to go back to the old format?
Fonts too small 3/5
Ribbon for market selection way too small
Generally nice 4/5
By King Edward Kong
After all it’s free. No mutual funds, ETF, and other investment products’ information. Can do better in the future
Awful redesign 1/5
This new design is terrible. I saved 2 commodities as favorites and they have disappeared. I can not find the Favorites section to view them. Also, everything is too black and white and hard to read. The last version was much better.
New market section is terrible 1/5
They couldn’t make the green (for up) and red (for down) brighter? Stupid. When I look at the markets, I’d like it to be more obvious.
hate the new design 1/5
hate the new design. shouldnt have to set up an account to really use it.
Updated and crashes every time 1/5
It crashes every time when I read article. It’s denying my service. Fix it!
Trump Bashing Disguised as News 1/5
Another news organization destroyed by hate. Sad.
Two thumbs down on the changes 1/5
By Willie Allen
Now it's more difficult to see if something went up or down.
Current, balanced, and relatively in depth. 5/5
By Next Dancer
I read Bloomberg daily as my source for business and economic oriented news coverage.
Update is bad 1/5
By SRV Blues
I hate the new update. I use this app to check commoditie markets and that’s it and you can barely tell where they are anymore. This app changes too much. They need to find a new job for the app developers
Not working... will not show individual graphs 1/5
Needs many improvements... do you interview people about what they may want?
By Lou Rotando
Top of the line for the serious investor!
Generally very very good.
BUT the new format for checking indices and especially futures is absolutely worse than the format you have had for awhile up until 3 days ago. Horrible.
POPUP full screen videos ???? 1/5
Intrusive adverts , slow loading and again too many annoying adverts
Time to delete app full page full screen adverts are like the old days of popup windows on every website
Too many adverts , never click on them , annoying and in your face , why advertisers would pay you is beyond me when possible customers are annoyed and terrorised by full screen popup ads bit like the old days of porn !!
Each release worse than the last 2/5
Every time the app is updated, the usability gets worse and worse as they try to cram more and more content into it. The version from iOS 8 was the best.
Messy App 1/5
By i've got to enter something
It has messy tiles and wants me to form an account. Two things I hate....
I still use it though but just for the information. It would be nice if I could access more news than just whats on the page given.
Who is in charge?? 1/5
A group of freshman engineering students could make a better app in a week. I rely on bloomberg for a lot of my news and I love the company and its reporting dearly. But Jesus this app is awful. I’m glad they’re updating it but nothing that needs to be fixed is getting fixed. Just read some of the other 1 star reviews and get your act together. No one could possibly be proud of having made this.
Where’d the Colors Go? 3/5
I’m still a big fan of the app, but I’m disappointed to see the green and red colors go away. It was such a quick visual clue as to what was happening.
By We law
I liked the previous version. Now I can't find anything. It's too complex when all I wanted to see was the quick short market moves.
Update improves app 5/5
The current update greatly improves the markets section. Thanks!
Awful. Beyond awful. Latest update is wasted time. 1/5
By Deficit Disorder
Still horrible. Wonderful news that keeps going backwards in its presentation.
I have been using this app for 4 years and very satisfied.
By individual rights
You are a statist business news service where all the reporting has to follow the big government liberal democrat semi socialist welfare entitlement high tax high regulatory state line. When are you going to defend individual rights, limited small government, economic freedom, low taxes and deregulation?
Like/not like 2/5
By Baron Yakov
Change of opening screen poor so that mkts that interest me cannot be located
By At not home
I love accurate easy to use apps and this is one.
Surely This Is A Joke 1/5
The latest update went from bad to worse. I have come to the conclusion that Bloomberg hired a bunch of genius computer engineer geeks, who know absolutely NOTHING about the user experience and user interface and told them to go make their App the absolute worst customer experience that can be achieved. They succeeded, why else would a company like Bloomberg take one of the formerly best finance apps on the planet and slowly turn it into a total piece of garbage? If you are looking for a finance/news app don't waste your time with this one, look elsewhere. If you upgraded from the previous version, just do what I will do and delete this amalgamation of who knows what.
HORRIBLE REDESIGN 1/5
The redesign of the app is absolutely horrible. Ads are jammed everywhere and the section for indices is so convoluted that it’s not even usable.
Device rotation 4/5
Apparently the last upgrade now requires that you rotate your device to portrait. I am not happy and will probably delete Bloomberg app.
It ain’t great! 1/5
Since rolling out a new feel to the app with some apparent new charting tools, which coincided with the loss of some basic charting functionality, I’d have to say the app took a major dive in usefulness. I’ve used a terminal since 1993, and have had one on my desk since the later 90’s. The app should be useful. It’s not going to hurt terminal subscriber-ship. Fix the app!
Ugliest update ever 1/5
was a great app, the latest update is a nightmare. Horrible programmers do not deserve a job.
Stop Changing the User Interface!!! 2/5
By Matt Judge
But the interface seems to change every year just for the sake of changing it. STOP DOING THAT!!! Once again, I need to poke around aimlessly until things make sense again...
Bring back the color! 3/5
Ok, I mostly use the app to see how the markets are doing. It looks like they’ve added more info, but lost the color coding (green positive gain, red negative loss). Not a big fan of the black & white.
Very useful app if you deal with any kind of stock or financials 1/5
Very useful, very streamlined, very easy to keep up with what you have and what you might like to have. Can't recommend highly enough.
Update: Not a fan of the new design.
Update 2: Even less of a fan of the newest design.
Horrible update 1/5
Looks like a high school class project. It's free and you get what you've paid for.
New Design 5/5
New design looks great and feels way more performant! Nice work.
Bloomberg is my news filter 5/5
With about every other source turning to clickbait and emotionally driven coverage, I can count on Bloomberg to deliver the bottom line on a lot more than the market. And the market coverage is still excellent.
Love Bloomberg and the app is clean, simple and easy to get to the things that matter to me.
A pleasure to use 5/5
Good articles with a smooth app to access them. Keep it up
Adjustable text size 2/5
The biggest complaint I have with this latest revision is the article text size is not adjustable by any means I can find. Much preferred the old version.
Font size 2/5
Can’t be adjusted. Wsj & Ny times let’s you adjust
Slanted news 3/5
By Not simple 234
You would think financial news would be straight forward but Bloomberg tries to opine on everything and slant it to their viewpoint. I just want the facts. Not interested in the opinion of the assistant to the undersecretary of the receptionist to the legal attache who says what you want to hear.
Bug found 3/5
By Chisung Lee
IPhone X iOS 11.2.1 aapl stock 5 year horizontal mode to see the graph, also when you click technical data and go vertical mode box becomes black and unable to see done button. Horizontal mode done button is in gray as if it’s behind the pop up screen. Facebook login also doesn’t bring you back to the app
No dice 1/5
The prior version was heavenly. Whose idea was it to fast Delta!?
Bad experience 1/5
1. Can’t select words within article to look up.
2. Can’t read through an article without accidentally slice over an ad and been redirected to ad’s website.
User experience is so bad.
Great News Source, but... 4/5
Great app. Great news source. For the most part objective but many times an evident bias against the current aministration and conservative views. Should work towards producing and showing more balanced news and views.
App is good 4/5
Most news listed on side of TV screen is not always available to read. The app on my 12” android tablet leaves 4” white spaces on both sides.
My favorite business website 5/5
By Weeks Hall
No website can compete with this intelligent cutting edge site!
Barely Worth Consideration 4/5
Using the Bloomberg app is like driving a 1955 Ford. It gets you down the road, but not much power or style. The editorial staff is talented, but wastes time telling us same old hate speech. They refuse to call The President by his title. It’s just not showing proper respect for our Duly Elected World Leader.
Mayor Bloomberg you could do better. Please!
Why can't it match the TV content? 3/5
By Ain't Dead Yet - Naper
The TV interface is better. News blurbs on the right. Ticker on bottom. Maybe multiple rows of ticker? Left side Live Video.
Great content but the format delivery could be better. More ticker. More news to read in a easier to read format (like Bloomberg TV - not the iPad app, on cable).
