Bring back text-to-speech 2/5
This used to be my favorite news app until the recent overhaul. Now a feature I used often, text-to-speech, is no more. Very disappointed.
Watchlist is great 4/5
The Watchlist is almost exactly what I am looking for, especially compared to the unbearably awful UX of Standard chartered. Hope there would be a remark column to write some notes for each SYMBOL, though
Text resize? 3/5
Where in the app is this adjustment?
Perfect if you prefer to receive highly slanted news 1/5
This app is perfect for delivering timely left-wing speculation mingled with news.
Credible, non-partisan, comprehensive, informative 5/5
My #1 source for news on all affairs thus far: politics, economics, investments and technology. My views about Bloomberg May change in the future, but as of the present I am very happy with the if its content distribution.
Great App 5/5
By Suggestion IOS
Love the app. I would love if there was a way to create widgets to see currency or stock prices/news.
News Needs Reformatting 2/5
The news page repeats the same story several times as you scroll down. One time is good enough.
March 11 update. I guess nobody at Bloomberg is reading these reviews. I can’t believe the editor of the news page thinks it’s OK repeat the same stories over and over and over again. Very infuriating.
The Good, The Bad, The Ugly 2/5
The Good (Great actually) - the business news, the charts and analysis.
The Bad - The Watchlist has become quite cumbersome and slow. I was blaming it initially to the slow internet soeeds we have in our nexk of the woods. But when I switched to Yahoo Finance to monitor my stocks, Yahoo was fast and realtime updated. Something is room with Bloomberg watchlist.
The Ugly - I used to love the “night” view (black background) because it is nighttime here in Asia during the US trading day. I cant seem to find that feature already. Now it is just the white background.
Note: I use an iPad Air.
Timely update & objective report 5/5
I enjoy the most!
Legibility needs 5/5
Almost perfect. Legibility is much much better now. Still on legibility: would be nice to have a setting so we could choose a black background.
Legibility is much better now. Still on legibility: would be nice to have a setting so we could choose a black background. News articles require larger font size or option to select a comfortable size.
One star because of:
1- In-app zoom, due to the very small font size currently in use;
2- Better choice of font colors to improve legibility and contrast.
Your political bias diminishes all articles so much so that I am deleting your app 1/5
Every story tries to diminish trump and conservative principals. You can’t objectively or effectively report news this way. I’ll go elsewhere for unbiased business news.
Fine content, iffy IT 4/5
Always appreciate the content but the IT isn’t very stable frequently getting stuck or just closing in its own.
Not so good 2/5
The app is ok but the watch list is very frustrating. I can’t reorder my stocks so everything is a mess. I’ll have to look for another app that’s user friendly.
Unavoidable ad redirection 1/5
One main complain on the app are the ads. when you scroll down the page without even pressing the ad banner, the app will redirect you to the app page, which is super annoying. you cannot avoid scrolling pass the adds.
Bloomberg app 5/5
Very few words are needed: this app is absolutely fantastic
Good content but app layout is poor 3/5
Bloomberg has awesome content and articles. But the app layout is really obnoxious. Only 25% of my screen is being used because very thing is centered. Hope they fix this
Breaks iOS 2/5
This app is a threat to Apple when it prevents highlighting and word lookup and stops audio playback of video on minimization or even when you respond to messages from the notification overlay.
There is no reason for the audio to stop playing once the app is minimized to respond to email or look something up or even locking the phone. It seems unnecessary to require users to burn through their battery with the screen on if they are just listening in. All the hosts and guests of course have the most beautiful faces one would want to see, but sometimes their beauty is just too distracting and I need to lock the screen to conserve battery life that is already bad because Apple sabotages it’s customers and users.
This app is clearly using its leverage to break iOS to its advantage, but it’s also more a signal of the Apple starting to rot.
Simply AWESOME 👏🏾! 5/5
Just what you need to keep abreast of the latest developments as it pertains to financial markets and investments.
Cannot copy and paste article 1/5
By NY blue
I prefer to save articles instead of just sending an url link, so I can read it right away for second time. Previous versions allows for news by different sections, but newer version interface is somewhat confusing.
Monetized platform and downhill 1/5
App has went down hill. Hard to use to keep track of portfolio now. Has good news feed but thats about it. Now using other platforms to keep track of my portfolio.
Loved it Until I Maxed Out 2/5
I’ve used this for several years to track my IRAs. Today I tried to add a stock to my watchlist and got a message that I had reached the limit of stocks I could track and should ask for a demo of Bloomberg professional. Bloomberg professional is $24k/ year.
It’s getting harder to find the financial news here amid all the Trump hate.
I enjoy it daily.
Updates have ruined this app 2/5
A few years ago Bloomberg was the best app in their field. Unfortunately, it’s become one of the worst as the developers have made several unnecessary changes. One such example is the markets page. In earlier versions one could find futures in one or two swipes whereas with the current revisions it’s a cumbersome fumble.
I love Bloomberg radio and TV but the app is a classic case of making change for the sake of making change.
bloomberg app 1/5
every time you update the app it takes a step back: gets more complicated and responds slower. don't fix what ain't broke. i yearn for the version from 4-5 yrs ago.
Mr Invester 5/5
By mr invester
It’s really, really good 5/5
Bloomberg is really, really good. Believe me.
Good app now! 4/5
It used to be fine in the ipad but problematic in the iphone. Now i read it every day. On monday 2/9/18 i sold everything and put the sales in their portfolio section and kept checking with sighs of relief as the losses mounted. Allowing multiple lists is helpful too. News is balanced and accurate
Update showed dramatically 2/5
By iPhone 3g user
App slow and unstable. Otherwise great content / function.
Poor updates 1/5
I have been using this app for years even on other platforms but have recently experienced many performance issues and continue to see these major performances issues even after updates geared to adress the performance issues.
Patrick Keeley 5/5
Best financial news app , great for getting headline news and specific company news.
By Mr. CFP(R)
I am a CFP(R) and use the app for certain functions. The ads are troublesome. Bloomberg did get rid of them (when I had asked) briefly but came back.
Good info but poor sound quality 4/5
By Kevin Cahill
Bloomberg is the top source of news. But most of the people speaking on its app have British or other foreign accents. Worse yet, important news often is accompanied by background sounds that make understanding hard. Half the speakers are young women who talk too fast. The sound quality of Skype and other on-air telephone conversations often is dismal.
Bloomberg seems unaware that its listeners are not in the Bloomberg sound studio but are in noisy vehicles or are using iPhones and so forth. Bloomberg’s management should try listening under such less than ideal conditions.
Great market data &futures 3/5
By just the facts please
I do like this app for general market news as well as stock data. I primarily uses this app for futures data before the market opens. The reason I am only giving 3 out of 5 stars is because the reporting and editorial portions are very liberal in bias. I just want the facts without the bias.
IPOs! Stocks! Yankee Bonds! Swap Spreads! Carry Trade! Implied Volatility! EBITDAR! Mortgage REITs! Smart Beta! Treasuries! Yield Curve! Inversions! Ray Dalio! Investments! Securitization! Options! Convertible Arb! Melt Up!
So much worse than the previous version 1/5
By oldand frustrated
Why do companies have to change their apps? The previous one was full of info-this one is like a kids toy. Back to CNBC for me!
Updated App design is not good 1/5
The UI is getting worse and more confusing with every update. I wish they stopped updating it two years ago.
I love the app! I watch Bloomberg TV and listen to Bloomberg Radio all the time. It would however be nice to save commodities such as Brent crude to your watchlist even if they are saved as favorites somewhere else as a favorite on the app.
I found the Bloomberg TV and Bloomberg Radio area on the App to watch and listen to Bloomberg Radio! Outstanding! 🙂
Still more work needed 3/5
Used to be easier to get to latest news. Views of market indices are still awkward to use. You can add stock index symbols to watch lists, why not bonds e.g. 10y treasuries?
Crashes all the time 1/5
I have iPhone 6 plus with original battery with ios 11.2.5. With the latest update of bloomberg the app crashes soon after I open it. And it happens every time I open the app. same issue with all recent versions of the app. Have you gone thru test with my phone configuration?
Several crashes today. Bloomberg supposed to be the one of the best companies with bright minds. No sure what happened. I hope they will fix the crash issues.
When I look up an equity quote.
Biased and fake 1/5
Bloomberg does not tell the truth. They ate the president so much that they fly and put out fake news the only thing I take out with them is the futures. I look at the futures at around 2 to 4 in the morning. They could be a good news and business of look but it’s all fake. Topics like global warming climateRuined from ruined from disaster country in the last year change will chilling. I just put up falls and falls and falls narratives. They might as will be run by the communist party because they put up such drivel and lies and.The Bloomberg editors and Bloomberg himself can’t get over how Trump won the presidency. The true American public saved this country from disaster! God bless America and God bless the President!
App won’t update stories or market indexes
Stuck on previous day’s events
Real News 5/5
I trusted source for what is really happening in our world.
Do not install 1/5
After the update, the application does not work at all, constantly crashes.(iPad 3 mini).
Loved the app, but latest rev crashes. 2/5
The latest rev crashes on my iPhone 6 running 11.2.2
App crashes when attempting to navigate to any sections (markets, etc)
