I’m using the free version. Watchlist feature doesn’t work fully, you can add lots, which is good, but you can’t change the date of purchase - it records the current date as purchase date and even though the app gives you the interface to change the date, the new date you put in doesn’t get saved. No QA it seems, poor delivery.
Has more ads than content 1/5
The ads are in the way and you can’t navigate through the app without clicking on an ad by accident.
Novice person to finance 5/5
I learned how to pronounce finance because of Bloomberg. All kidding aside, love Bloomberg, auto coverage, Tom Keene and learning Lisa Abramowicz enjoys cycling to work in an urban setting. Someday I’ll have a little money God-willing and I’ll make good on a promise to leverage it as a protection. Keep producing excellent contact Bloomberg!
App is good 2/5
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. Crashes tab 5 times a ha our. On iPhone works fine. Still news posted on tv not available!
My regards 2/5
By Simone Kiana
I wish Bloomberg the best of luck in his campaign
Nice application 5/5
Very nice application
Not well organized. Value of subscription not clear 2/5
By S Werbe
I love Bloomberg reporting but the site is difficult to navigate and it is not clear what you get for your subscription. The fire is overloaded with very obnoxious adverts which seem targeted at a naive audience )is that audience Bloomberg is cultivating??)
Great app... until they monetized it 1/5
App has great content - one of the worlds best. Unfortunately they recently changed their revenue model from ads to subscription and only allow 10 free articles per month, which I can go through in less than 15mins! Thereafter you stuck waiting for the next month as I find the 20+$ per month hard to justify.
Best app for keeping up with trading and world news.
Dear Bloomberg change is needed 4/5
More news and other sections such as texhnology and politics should be easily accessed .
You need to change your graphics and make the app more news friendly
Charge for access? 1/5
By Greatful User
Bloomberg is a great financial news source and used to be my favorite until they started charging for access to articles. There are plenty other good financial news sources that don’t charge that now get my time. Poor move and it states what is most important to Bloomberg—personal profit before people.
Anti trump bias 1/5
By Won't sync....
Too much anti trump bias. Cant get the actual news I’m looking for. Will be canceling my subscription.
UPDATE: The “Trump slump” was BIG news! But when markets go back up there is no positive mention of Trump. But yea you’re not biased at all!
Informative, great outlook on the financial and political world ,great insights on market conditions, professional analysis
It the first thing I read in the morning
Ads crashes app 3/5
The more ads it tries to push the more the app crashes. Make it Subscription without ads or free with ads
Too expensive 1/5
By uber user complaints
Very expensive other give news for free.
A rip off
Present ideas 5/5
Bloomberg’s luxury coverage blends relevant details with exciting imagery.
Great App But Do Not Like Paywalls 1/5
My engagement with this app has declined dramatically since they instituted the paywall. I don’t like paywalls in general and $35 per month is way too much.
Good articles 5/5
Well written; many subjects covered from many angles.
Bloomberg Great 5/5
By Orcas Man
The website is an excellent resource.
Slanted Reporting 1/5
Most of the stories on here are politically correct. And when they’re not they are old news and nothing more. And now you want to charge for your service. I won’t pay
George Pierce 1/5
Can’t trust data feeds.
Ja estoy MUY CONTENTO TONYBANK 3/5
By TONY LLOPIS
La BORSA ES ALCISTA
BEST ON TIME 5/5
I found you to bring out important news earlier than others.
Once great 3/5
By Giovanni m. Henriques VII
The information and those that wrote for Blumberg taught me how to invest… Bloomberg has now changed to more of a CNN model and a lot of the people that had sustainable and substantial information in order to grow as an investor have been watered down but give us three stars A little sad because of the commercialism now that the number has moved to although although I still enjoy it and use it daily
More than replaces WSJ 5/5
By Chauncey P
Bloomberg news and business reporting is excellent. Timely, accurate providing critical perspectives.
By Gary Bushwacher
I don’t understood the need for a subscription
U make ad rev
Needs subscription to really work well. 3/5
Without a subscription a lot of financial and news info is limited. Compared to Yahoo, its inferior in that regard.
Frankly, I’m sick and tired of every internet app putting their hands into my autopay pocket. But if you have deep pockets, it may be worth it.
Great App but Room to Impove 4/5
By Bloomberg Fan in NY
The Bloomberg app is much better than prior versions with combination of video and podcasts. The only thing that might make it better is repeating ads after being disconnected from the online network. I would recommend getting the app for both the younger business generation as well as the older generation who like the radio format.
Clicks not new 1/5
Clickbait full of fear & big headlines. No longer a new breaker
Treasury yields 2/5
On your bond page; you do not have the 10y treasury. Please add as it’s the most widely watched rate in the bond world.
Too slow 2/5
Updated on the futures markets is too slow
Nice try Bloomberg 1/5
$30 a month, no thanks lol. $30 a month for shady speculative articles that don’t really help anyone accomplish anything.
Buggy app 3/5
By Surveillance Groupie
Love the content but the I find the app buggy. I was forced to switch from the B-Radio app to this app and ever since I have incurred way more commercials. The preroll ads are very annoying because if I am listening to a radio show and the app or stream drops I am forced to watch another preroll ad before reengaging. Sometimes I am hit with a preroll ad, then more ads and then finally several mins later I get to the content. Vs if I open up iHeartRadio I can immediately start streaming.
I find that my streaming radio drops/the radio function fails all the time while I am at home on WiFi. No idea why as I don’t have the same issues with other services.
To many Ads & poor image handling 1/5
Images and charts still don’t rotate with iPhone (portrait vs landscape) and even more pathetically the user can’t pinch the image larger or smaller. Whatever management droids signed off on that should be demoted or fired. The ads are obnoxious. Constantly interrupting and cheapening the readers experience. Losing patience with an overpriced product. If the content was better and more consistent and the app could handle images it might be closer to a fair value.
Corporate ceo 1/5
By ceo of multinational corp
I usually get all my financial info from CNBC and other internet sources where there is no fee to obtain financial news stories.
All this app now does is try to charge you 1/5
It’s 35.00 a month minimum which is pretty crazy to me. I’m moving to seeking alpha and business insider. Plus it’s biased reporting “fake news” anti republican and anti trump.
Slower and slower 1/5
With each update, the unpaid version becomes slower and slower. I don’t know if it’s faster when you pay for the subscription, but obviously that’s what they want people to adopt. Wish I could get another app like theirs as it was 6+ years ago when I began using it. Monetize from power users and institutions, not individuals who are just trying to keep up with the financial news that professionals already have a jump on.
Too expensive 1/5
I downloaded the app to track stocks in order to see related news. Almost immediately got a message I'd used up my quota of free articles for the month. Not paying to subscribe to something I haven't even been able to try. I can get this kind of information elsewhere.
Simple horrible....CNBC is free and better 1/5
Why arent the bloomberg developers listening to their users? The production version from Nov 2016 was wonderful. The new version seems to have fallen off a mountain. By limiting my ability to toggle between radio/live media AND the rest of my iphone is ridiculous. I knos you have advertise to sell but seriously!!
Apologies for the rant. Simply time to fine a better business app. Msnbc? Others?
Update Nov 2018 - haven't looked back and avid CNBC fan now. Keep on losing subscribers Bloomberg :)
Pay for subscription 1/5
I loved Bloomberg news on my iPhone when it was a free service, but it’s not worth the subscription fee for bits of news financial or other I can get for free somewhere else. If your going to charge people there has to be some some value nobody else has besides news.
EXCESSIVE DATA USAGE 2/5
The Bloomberg app consumes too much data on Roku, Chromecast, Firestick, android, IOS, etc. You can't drop video playback quality from 1080p HD to lower 480p SD so daily viewing is limited. Otherwise you will easily max 1TB of data and incur extra charges on internet. Very bad in a household of 2+ people streaming. An update to fix this will really help.
I subscribe to businessweek and they still want to charge me to read the articles here. Lame
Liberal bias 1/5
By Psycho Baseball
Bloomberg has turned into a propaganda wing of the radical left. So shameful and sad.
The Best 5/5
Your programming is fantastic.
Room for improvement
Too Liberal for me 1/5
When Trump was elected it went far far left.
I used to like it 1/5
Now that you have to pay over $40 per month to read the articles, I find the buggy app to be intolerable. I used to put up with it but has become too much. Often closes by itself and the ads get stuck and you have to reboot the app. Sad.
Pretty unhappy 1/5
I pay close to $40 a month so I can watch a 6-15 second ad before every video. On top of that, the ads in the app don’t always work well. I find myself often clicking on an ad while trying to scroll down. Also, the app doesn’t seem to be perfectly made for the XS Max.
