Why is it I get limited monthly viewing of Bloomberg stories when I can read every story on my computer?
News and Facts 5/5
Respected your coverages when I was in the business. I think you might be penny wise dollars poor by charging on News. The country has been sent into a quagmire for honest reporting.Business and the information surrounding it demands the facts and honesty.
Limited and shallow content 1/5
I only check the currency, commodities and bond prices on the app. The articles are narrow in scope and short on details
Exceptional Coverage 5/5
This is surely the “go to” app for my business and general news coverage.
I highly recommend it!
This was a great ad sponsored app
Now it’s $40/month!!
10 free articles a month for non subscribers
Half of those I “click” accidentally!
Best and most used app on my phone
By Drudge viewer
Too bad you have to pay a subscription to read the news. Greed has taken over
Your news is presented with an obvious bias 2/5
By just want real unbiased news
Far too liberal
Bloomberg Review 4/5
By Mpingo Tree
You can allow more stories to be read in full. Raise the limit.
Ok but stop bugging me
Reliable info, honest reporting! 5/5
By Chuck 77
Through good markets and bad, Bloomberg has help me steer a profitable course. What more can you ask?
Who would pay for this garbage? 2/5
By It's So Awful
Mediocre app. Crashes. Now costs money to subscribe. Goodbye Bloomberg. Paying for a subscription for this is not worth it.
Nickel and diming your clients 2/5
Why is there a limit on the number of stories that can be read each month?
Why is there a limit on the number of stocks that can be tracked?
Much worse than the previous app 1/5
Briefly here are some of the issues I found to listen to Bloomberg radio:
1- Every time you connect there is a video you must run. If you don’t have enough broadband and can’t play it, you’re not connected to the radio broadcast.
2- The app crashes or stops running very often and you have to reconnect.
3- every time you reconnect you have to listen to a bunch of initial adds, before listening to the broadcast which in turn has quite a bunch of adds
It is not unusual to miss half of an interview or commentary because of the above
Stop autoplaying videos 3/5
Deleting it for auto playing videos. That’s a hard pass.
Otherwise it appears solid. Good content and snappy. If you don’t mind the vids it’s worth a download
Not optimized for iPhone X/Xs 3/5
Still haven’t updated the app for the latest devices (X/Xs/Xs Max) which makes using the navigation a challenge.
Has become politically motivated 1/5
I've had this app for many years and it was my most used app. However, since Trump has become president, it has become a political app aimed at attacking Trump/republicans. I never thought of this as a political app before that time. Very sadthat they feel the need to try and push a political agenda, but I'm deleting the app and moving to an alternative
Over monetized greedy app 1/5
Bloomberg story quality is dropping along with the app. When news is readily available bloomberg news is busy doctoring up market moving news and then trying to monetize - the hack story is a perfect example - thankfully they got called out.
Just awesome 1/5
Just deleted due to ads in radio cant them too many
Somehow worse with every update 1/5
Good content, terrible app. This app is so packed with ads that it's unusable. This app peaked in 2009 and has been getting worse ever since. Bloomberg, you disappoint me.
Used to be Free 1/5
This app used to be free, but now want you to subscribe after only reading a few articles. What’s all the advertising in the app for?
Not worth the paid subscription 3/5
By Massimo Stupido
For an annual subscription of $340, the “paid” content is poorly offered and not very distinguished from what you get for free from Bloomberg. Boo.
Looks and functions like trash on iPhone XS 1/5
- Not able to play back videos in true full screen on iPhone XS.
- The white app switcher bar on bottom showing on all times during videos.
- just doesn’t feel like an iOS experience on the video front.
- when rotate the video doesn’t always follow have to close open app in order for it to rotate view
App is fine but this Fake-news source is not 1/5
Bloomberg fabricates lies the way most of us breathe air. Delete this app and if you ever see Bloomberg in the real world, shove a fist through their terminals and rip up their lie-rag magazines. They’re a pack of lying thieves.
Can’t select text. 1/5
By Danse en France
W. T. F.
Ad Loading an Issue 5/5
Excellent app, however over the past few weeks some of the prime time ads load sporadically and the app has to be exited and reopened or excessive time is wasted with ads loading.
Bad source of news 1/5
Was my go to info source. Now use WSJ.
App crashes 1/5
App crashes upon opening
iPhone X Unusable 1/5
Do you even test this on an iPhoneX? Can’t navigate because overloads the bottom of the screen bar. Joke. Deleted.
Skipping Video 1/5
The video skips in the app.
Nice app, way too expensive. 2/5
I like the app and even like the news stories, but no way am I going to cough up $35 per month to read them. Until they reduce their subscription rates, the app is pretty worthless.
Not credible, fake news 1/5
They lots me with bogus Chinese chip hack story.
Stop with the Anti Trump opinion story notifications 3/5
The App I use most for world market monitoring, but the anti trump stuff is getting old. So much is geared anti trump that it makes it hard to use the app. Have an opinion section and run stories like that all you want. But the bias has effected market reports and I don’t want notifications of opinion stories presented like breaking news is getting really intolerable.
Not pushing notifications and not prompted to set so. 3/5
Great content. Please enable a dark mode 5/5
Please enable a dark mode for reading at night. Keep up the good work Bloomberg. Excellent reporting, great app. I wish other apps were this good. Five stars all day.
It’s a completely disaster on iPhone Xs 1/5
Tab bar is cut off, tool tips just block the entire screen. Completely nonsense
Muy poco amigable 2/5
Versiones anteriores era mejores. La sección de tasas de cambio es la peor
Going downhill 1/5
Used it for years, but App is increasingly dominated by popular news and the demand for a monthly was fee too steep for me as a retiree and individual investor. Particularly for Donald Trump dominated content. Really too bad, but consistent with the decline in the quality of financial news overall.
Battery gets extremely hot 1/5
Battery gets extremely hot when using only this app, not great in fact rather worrying . Don’t want a lithium battery fire in my hands because of your terrible app ! Wow that would be huge lawsuit
Great info; too slow and unstable 2/5
I love the info I get and really want to be able to use this app. But, it takes about 5 seconds after each tap for the requested screen to show. And, then it crashes about every 3 minutes if use.
Laggy, slow & not really free :/ 1/5
Gave this a try for two weeks & deleting it. Laggy & slow app response, not many news sources even for big company stocks. Reached limit of how many articles one can read,keeps asking to buy a subscription. Stick with using your brokerage app or Yahoo finance app. I'll come back if app runs smoothly & not have such a low limit to read articles per month.
Makes phone so hot can’t stay in my pocket. Can’t imagine it’s good for the phone either.
I’ve been reading Bloomberg since I was a young man, 10 years old. this is not acceptable me downloading your app and you giving me a set number of articles to read and than I HAVE to buy a subscription or just simple wait until the next month to get 8 “free” articles then I guess I’ll continue to read your articles in other news sites I truly enjoy and love this app until I was given a set number free articles to read it.
clickbait type content 1/5
I admit I came for the “name” and gave it credibility based on that alone, looking for news that might help some market decisions. Overtime I began to see repetitive and biased content that sometimes reverses itself inside of its own content. Not uncommon for two articles to be release within hours of each other, that are polar opposite of one another. This is not news, this is tabloid entertainment (at best).
Too much advertising 1/5
I’ve listened to this app for years. It used to be great. But they’ve sought to over-monetize it. This morning when I logged in, I heard 8 commercials in a row, but no news. The mix of advertising to programming is close to 50%. It’s no longer a good use of my time. It’s such a disappointment.
Requiring subscription 1/5
This app is now telling me I have exceeded my free articles and need to purchase a subscription to read what is given out for free on their website.
Its a shame- this used to be my go to news source but this app isnt worth paying for a subscription to use- especially the STRAIGHT UP CRAZY FEE they want per month. Bloomberg wants to charge monthly more than my gym, more than I pay for any other subscription. I cant believe anyone would actually pay $35 a month for a news site (or any site honestly).
Old app providing more content 1/5
Design is better, but less free content and you can mistakenly click articles. That part is super annoying because it counts against your articles read for the month.
Used to be awesome 1/5
First they put the pay gate now the app is super janky and just a pain to use. Whoever is managing the app side of things is doing a crappy job
But the latest update is very bad. Need not updated properly, added useless features and now they limit the number of FREE articles available and pushing you to subscribe. Like New York Times I just stop reading them. Maybe it’s time to move on from Bloomberg as well. Used to be great and I’d recommend it to everybody but not anymore.
