Any NBC/Universal app is crap!!! 1/5
Doesn't matter if its E!News or NBC News, if it's by NBC universal it will take forever to load, take forever to update, and lock up constantly. I am uncertain why the NBC Universal CIO still has a job. Wonder if he/she worked at British Air before NBC Universal.
App won't stop pin wheeling 1/5
All versions of the app I've had so far, over the last 2+ years, won't stop trying to load or at least stop pin wheeling when you load the app by tapping a notification. The pin wheel is extremely intrusive and gets in the way of any and all articles you try to read.
The only way to get rid of the pin wheel is by closing the app via the app switcher and re-launching the app by tapping the app icon.
The app support link in the App Store also takes you to an NBC News page that doesn't give you an option to report the app issue, which, in my opinion, is extremely amateurish.
Until they fix these issues I won't give the app anything more than one star because the app developers should of squashed these bugs a long time ago.
Slow to load 3/5
By Base news critic
I do not know what you did with this app, now it loads very slow.
Seems faster to load 4/5
Will upgrade to five stars if that continues. Was horrid slow before
Pretty good 4/5
The news coverage is liberal biased but overall it's a pretty good app. The articles are well written and they've done a good job incorporating more extensive sports coverage when compared to prior versions.
Old news 1/5
I gave this one star because when the app launches you have to pull down to get it to update. If you don't know that, you're looking at old news. This is bad application programming and is inexcusable these days.
Old news. This app presents news that is day's old. It has no refresh button. It does not refresh automatically. Good if you're looking for what happened day's ago. I can't recommend it. I'm deleting it.
Great place for 4 month old stories! 1/5
Hence the one star rating. Really NBC app creator? The most recent story under the "Latest" is from January 2017? Who the hell wants to read 4 month old newspapers? Maybe if you don't really care, this app is for killing time only.
P.S. the previous rate is an obvious FAKE! Vague and complimentary to NBC's non bias, c'mon now
Great news 5/5
A very nice app. I always trust and use NBC. It's know to not have any biases and is a reliable source.
At least now the stories load 2/5
Developers apparently finally fixed the (difficult?) problem of getting content in addition to headlines. But this still is just a "me too" app does little to improve the genre. The analysis is as boring as the content presentation.
Solid but slow 2/5
By Mike Alek
The app is good for checking NBC News but what I find annoying as heck is how long it takes to update. It will never load with updated content regardless of how often you use it or if you're on cell or Wifi. It takes a solid two minutes to load updated content. Other news apps don't have this problem.
It will waste your time. Crap App! 1/5
Don't bother to download. 30 second commercial between every story. Same Delta commercial. Such a friggin waste of time. Won't watch NBC and sure won't fly Delta. Delta - You pay money to get people not to fly your airline?
Don't bother downloading this app.
Getting tired of it 1/5
I'm tired of everytime I go to read an article and it's blank. Only the news articles seem to be ok, but any of the pop culture, lifestyle, & those like it won't load. I only watch NBC, but i will delete this app unless it is fixed. Never had this problem before.
Slow App 1/5
This app never loads with updated content. I will delete if it's not fixed.
Blank articles/articles don't don't load 4/5
Please fix this issue: You click on an article and a white page loads. This has been going on for several weeks. I can't read anything. Even after this latest update. I uninstalled and reinstalled as well.
3/23/17: still no fix. Very disappointing. Please provide and update soon. I'm shocked that this is not getting a higher priority. You are the news leader no?!
App won't refresh 1/5
When I click on any of the articles the pages open up blank. Tried deleting and reinstalling the app but this did not help.
Best fake news app out there by far! 1/5
By 99Rec Coach
If you enjoy fake news, look no further. This app will take you away to a world made up in the imagination of a reporter. Once you submit to this world, they will be your guide to a narrative of their choosing. This app will also create news and use it for preverbal political assignations. Sometimes this app will archive "news" or "stories" until it is useful to fulfill the political will of management. Submit your mind and enjoy this app!
By Cider 4960
Latest version unusable 1/5
Same as other reviews - 2/27/17 version is completely buggy. Page often doesn't refresh, when it does it's s-l-o-w, pictures don't load or the ones that do are completely unrelated to the accompanying story. Was this version written by high school interns on a dare? Advice to NBC Digital: hire marginally competent app coders.
Articles open to a blank page 1/5
News Stories Won't Load 1/5
App opens, stories in homepage. Tap story and nothing loads. Been this way for weeks. Don't bother downloading this App.
Blank screen 1/5
Click on stories and you'll be taken to a completely blank screen which effectively makes this app utterly useless...unless you only care to read headlines.
Often doesn't load 3/5
By Barb Redgreen
I'm not trying to watch the videos anymore, but I'd be happy to be able to read the text. Whatever happened to the App, it seems to be getting worse. Deleting and re-installing isn't helping. I hope you'll fix it before Megyn Kelly comes on.
Doesn't refresh 1/5
When started, the app doesn't refresh with current news. Still has old news from the last load. Pulling down to refresh sometimes requires 1-2 minutes. Awful app.
Still not fixed 1/5
Even after the update earlier today the app still not working. One is greeted with a blank screen.
Still not fixed 1/5
Click on a story and it just goes to a blank screen even after the latest bug fix.
Blank screen 1/5
Tapping on an article just loads a white screen.
Doesn't work ... 1/5
By Molokai Mule
I get a blank screen when attempting to sign in to my TV provider. Waste of time.
Does not automatically update. 1/5
Does not update on my phone. Haven't gotten around to workaround yet. Great coverage, but management can't be reached in order to bring shortcomings to their attention.
Blank News 1/5
Great News But Fix The App! 1/5
Not going to beat a dead horse. Repeating everybody else's concerns about this app and it load times. Horrible. Hardly ever view it now as I'm leaning towards other apps for my News. I wish NBC would get with it and Fix it!
Voted Libertarian. Very biased against Trump. Constant bashing. Constant trumpeting of SNL and its lame skits. News should be reported not made or guided.
Great & Informative app! 5/5
I love the layout of this app. The news is current & updated regularly. It's a good looking app as well. Please give it a shot. I think you will be impressed.
Blank news stories 1/5
I would imagine that NBC news would want to solve the blank screen problem that's been going on for the past few weeks but they must be too busy.
Is this app ever going to get fixed? 1/5
I'm getting the same white screen on every article
Liberal bias....as always. Good luck on trying to fine non agenda journalism.
Trusted news...app needs work 3/5
NBC is my favorite source for news. Best reporting and unbiased stories. But the notifications don't load fully, the iOS widget doesn't display properly and just recently stories are just a blank white screen. I WANT to use this app so please fix.
Don't waste your time 1/5
Biased news Look elsewhere
Chuck Todd 5/5
Your the man.
Won't to loading the news on iOS 10
NBC NEWS 2/5
Every time i open the app it still has the news from the previous. I have to manually get it to update. One of the reasons i stopped using the app. I know just type it in because i know it will already be updated.
Horrible refresh 1/5
With all the money NBC has, can't they hire a software person that can update the app to refresh faster?
The Worst 1/5
By Smokin' roads
This has to be one of the absolutely worst apps I have ever seen. NBC should be ashamed to have their name in this.
Biased News 1/5
NBC strategically uses its communication power to provide politically biased news in attempt to manipulate, align, or portray Americas' perception with that of its own and for its own interests. If you want real, raw, and unbiased news -- look elsewhere or at least get your news from multiple outlets. The Apple "News" app brings many different news sources together into one app and I highly recommend using it combined w/ Twitter -- good combo!
Horrible - battery eater 1/5
When I get alerts from this app and click on them, a circle starts rotating in the middle of the screen wiping away my battery. I have to move the screen around the circle in order to read the story. Also, when I went to review it, it said I don't own the app. I deleted the app and re-loaded it just so I could write this review before I forever delete the app. Outrageous that a company as big as NBC Universal doesn't know how to make a properly working app.
Refresh Problem 2/5
The app never refreshes. I have to delete it and reinstall it to get the latest news. I like the content but it is not worth the trouble.
Horrible load times, poor streaming quality, no live stream in TV app.
Come on, get your act together and publish a PROPER news app!
HORRIBLE ... NO NEWS ... PATHETIC 1/5
By Absolutely nothing2
Are you kidding me ???? PATHETIC
NBC NEWS ... AND THIS IS THE BEST YOU CAN DO FOR AN APP
I'M SWITCHING TO CNN
Bring back Breaking News 1/5
Breaking News was a 10/10 news app and should have never been shut down. Bring it back!
Updated to add: why won't it update? It's been stuck for 2 months.
What happened? This update stinks. Same stories over and over, stupid to navigate. Go back to the way it was. Booooo!
