Fake news 5/5
Why don't y'all report on Hillary Clinton and her ties to Russia with nuclear one y'all are just a bunch of pussies that want to attack Trump.
Needs bug fixes 2/5
The app loads but quickly freezes and you have to wait like 2+ minutes for it stop. Other then that great app for my daily world news.
Crashes constanty 1/5
To the point the app is unusable. It use to work just fine.
Looks great on the iPhone X 4/5
I have used this application for a long time and it has never worked better or looked better than it does now on my iPhone X. Keep up the good work.
They just updated it & its STILL... 2/5
By Crowded in the House
Major lag time loading app & headlines. So launching (or switching to) app results in 15-20 second hang delay before it is responsive. They rarely update the app so you are usually stuck w bugs like this for months on end
Good, but not perfect.... 3/5
This app is good, but not great.
- Home -
The home tab is good, but I wish I could customize it a little more by adding, removing or at least reorganizing sections that matter to me.
- In Depth -
This tab is great and I see no issues with it.
- Sections -
This tab needs to be redesigned. It’s current layout leave a lot to be desired. Not sure the vertical layout is needed here. Also the Live Video option does not work.
- Shows -

- Misc -
Wish there was more local news and weather via local affiliates. There should be a Local tab along the bottom that can use your location (or zip code) to connect you to local news.
Widget does not work. All I see is “Unable to Load”.
Live Audio is really nice for when I’m on the go or working out, but would love if Live Video worked also for times when I can watch.
Pauses music in the background 1/5
By P and P
This seems to be a common issue with Nbc apps. My local station keeps having the issue where it pauses background music. Even with no video stories. Just launching the app pauses background app.
Enjoying the new Live Audio 5/5
I don’t have a provider. My access to TV is either rabbit ears or through my iPhone. So, there are a lot of programs I either have no access to or delayed access via a recording.
I am thrilled that NBC News has added a new live audio link. A lot of times, I don’t care if I can see it (and may not be able to), but I can stay up to date by listening.
Thanks for live access to some of my favorite news shows!
Widget no longer works 3/5
Since your last update, the widget functionality on my iPhone 8 no longer works. Message states, “Unable to load”. I have to believe this has already been reported.
Top Story in Country Missing 1/5
Clinton collusion with the Russians exposed and nothing mentioned about it on NBC app.
When is NBC going to cover the Hillary &DNC fake dossier?
How about funding with Russia?
Russia, Russia, Russia, now nothing? Come on major news network!
App is crapp 1/5
This app doesn't stop spinning. Won't load fully. Stories haven't updated in two weeks popular ribbon is broken fix it
It's been a crap app for years. Gotta delete
Apple News app Notifications! 5/5
I would Prefer to view NBC News
through the Apple News app.
But the Apple News app needs
I heavily use the NBC Bay Area app though.
Never ending spinning pinwheel 1/5
By Indy Don
This needs to be fixed soon. Loading stories results in a lot of lag that I don’t remember before last update.
Extremely slow 1/5
I like NBC news, but this app makes it extremely difficult to get to the news and navigate where I want to go. It is hardly worth using.
Lester Holt 1/5
By Hawk FURMAN
Lester Holt and his fake news makes 70% of Americans upset
Wheel spinning incessantly 2/5
Can still read around it but very annoying. Please fix.
Apple TV app crashes 1/5
Great format for Apple TV but for the past couple of months video stops and screen returns to main menu.. very frustrating.
Nice design bad execution 1/5
Once you tap on a breaking news notification the article or video will have the loading icon spinning in the middle of the screen the whole time effectively cutting off your view of the screen. Also, the widget screen used to be much better. Now it features only one article while the native IOS news app displays 4 or 5 trending articles so I use it more in its place.
Great app. 4/5
I have no issues with the app. I've had it for a while now so everything seems fine. I do wish there was a better layout, something like ABC that is more organized and smooth.
So slow to load 1/5
The content is great but I have never seen an app so slow to refresh. There is something wrong with it.
Ad pop ups, slow loading...FRUSTRATING 1/5
By Joe from Hollywood
Title says it all. The app is too frustrating to bother with. Deleted.
Great if you like ads 1/5
This app makes it frustrating to read articles. Ads are constantly popping up. I rarely use this app because of this.
Takes forever to load, scroll 1/5
By Smccc smccc
Used to be a good app until recently. Now takes forever to load, then you have to wait another 15-20 seconds to be able to scroll to the top of the page. App support button takes me to a useless page. Looked for a setting option that was text-only in hopes it would load faster, but couldn't find anything. Disappointing since it used to be a good app. Can't believe such a big company is willing to put up with this from their app developer.
Terrible App! 1/5
By JoeBot 2.0
It's as if they actually do not want you to use their app. App doesn't work here and doesn't work on Apple TV.
Get some new stories. All articles towards the bottom of your list are OLD. Get newer ones or get rid of them!
Ahh I see.... 1/5
Pretty much worthless ...as is noted by others it only updates if your sitting on top of an LTE tower then it will take forever ....must have been invented by some one never off a very high speed wired network ....not a mobile app you will get no news here.
A television news wanna bee everything is video that never loads and you're news updates may take a week.
Add me to the unhappy group 1/5
Latest version has a bug that causes the "updating" icon to continue to spin thus blocking the content. The "support" link goes to a page featuring Brian Williams and dated 2012. #fail. I've deleted the app completely.
Latest update 1/5
What happened? The app was working fairly well before the May 12th update. At times the updated information would sometimes be slow to upload taking up to 20 to 30 seconds. After the latest update it takes much longer and frequently freezing up! SAD!
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.
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.
