iOS 14 Broke App Login 1/5
iOS 14 broke the ability to log into this app. Please fix this ASAP.

Wonderful source of latest news approaching from either political side. Excellent use of primary and secondary data points. The articles usually have an itemized summary in the beginning for those looking for a quick read.
I once looked at articles from The Economist, NYT and WSJ to get an unbiased view of the latest news, but Bloomberg is truly all that you will need.
WHY IS THIS APP READING MY CLIPBOARD???
Updates about as often as a physical news paper. Looks like a web page. No sound on notifications or any configuration options. At $30 a month, my only response is a gasp and a chuckle.
Dark mode 2/5
By abk New York
Would be great to have the dark mode in the app for night reading.
Can’t see videos 1/5
Audio plays but no video using an IPad Pro.
I have purchased an All Access and can’t pull up this subscription on my iPhone. I also have a magazine subscription. I’ve called and needed to leave my phone number but no one has returned my call!
Poor layout and no night mode 1/5
I pay a hefty annual subscription and this app doesn’t have some key features like night mode and better text size options. Also it’s layout option make it difficult to review all sections easily. The overall design of MSNBC is better and USA Today is as well.
Bloomberg move to a subscription model to view any articles. 1/5
I have enjoyed this app for years. But, I’ve noticed I can now view zero articles by clicking on the headlines. This disappointing change has made this app useless to me. Sure, I can listen to Bloomberg news live but I can do that from the website too. Goodbye app. I will miss your headline alerts but if I can’t read any of the stories, what’s the point?
Bad app, but good service 3/5
Why does this app can’t work properly. It keeps switching between the browser and the Bloomberg app. Why can’t it open everything in the app. I use premium subscription but it still kicks me out every time so I have to log in again and again.
Too many advertisements, lots of great content 4/5
I love Bloomberg, and the price is pretty high, but I love the service and the market-focused news.
There are far too many advertisements for subscribers, and the application is painfullly bright. It’s sorely in need of a Dark Mode to save eye strain and increase performance and battery life.
It would be great if the podcast and video player could alter playback speed, especially the podcast player. Sometimes it’s easier to watch things on YouTube where I can wTch at 1.5x speed. I should have the best experience in the Bloomberg app itself.
My last suggestion involves Chromecast. It seems like Bloomberg TV often has stuttering and lag issues on the 1080p Chromecast. The picture quality has always been excellent, but since August, the stream seems to always stutter and slowdown, as if the Chromecast is unable to handle it. It works fine in the Roku app, but the delay is infuriating there.
I’d like to be able to Chromecast again to get the truly “live” feed with real time data!
Why there is no “look up” option like apple news? 3/5

I can’t even choose the words that I want to know the meaning of by looking up dictionaries
What a waist of money... 2/5
Bloomberg is a great tool and the articles are top notch. Their tech team needs to get their act together though. Linking the Bloomberg app subscription to Bloomberg.com has never worked. It’s a mess and a waist of money. If you buy a subscription through the app, it doesn’t transfer to the site, even if they advertise you have unlimited access on any device. You have to chose: either you buy a subscription through the app and you have access through it (any tablet or smart phone), or you buy it through Bloomberg.com and have access on any computer. You don’t get both.
No dark mode? 3/5
By Manoj Reddy L
Only 3 stars for not having a dark mode option!
Not Worthy 3/5
This app is no longer worthy of being considered a true Bloomberg product. While it may deliver relevant content, its stability has deteriorated to the point that it affects how other apps work. At least weekly, I have to shut down and restart my iPad to get BBW+ to work properly. Pages close without warning, ads pop up and rearrange the page, and some pages don’t even load until the app is forced closed and restarted, or the device restarted.
I finally deleted this app and started a print-duplicate subscription via ZINIO.
Bloomberg LP Review 5/5
I has been a client of various Bloomberg LP information services for many years. Even since I was the Vice-president and Director of Economics at the former Government Development Bank (GDB) for Puerto Rico.
The bast cover of key economic and financial issues, beside other very relevant related issues is extraordinary. I was a client for many years of the excellent WEFA and S&P’s DRI information services. However, Bloomberg LP information services are always of extreme relevance and all updated with the latest information available.
The professionalism and data checking in all articles shows an outstanding information system. As a regular reader of various themes of Bloomberg LP I always feel a great trust in what I read.
Over politicized left news 2/5
This is a liberal news app, nothing more. Was looking for a good business news app, but this obviously has another agenda. Deleted this morning.
Good reporting bad GUI 4/5
I have a subscription but it makes me restore and log in at every point of using the app and on safari. Like the reporting but I won’t keep logging in to my precious news account. Who has time like that anymore
It’s great and gives me what I want. 5/5

专业 清晰 简单 好用
By w Eric woo top
Miserable app that doesn’t recognize paid subscriptions.
NO DARK MODE?? 4/5
New app - awful 1/5
Clunky, disorganized basically unusable.
Drains my iPad’s battery like crazy 3/5
Usually like the app, but it started chewing through battery like crazy. Probably have to uninstall.
Update: Battery drain continues with latest update. Caused by “Background refresh.” The refreshes cannot be turned off. This issue needs to be fixed ASAP! App is currently unusable.
Update 2: Issue was finally fixed. The developer notified me of the fix. Wish it had been faster.
Notifications don’t work on iPad 1/5
They work on iPhone, but not iPad, which is irritating as I read my news on the iPad. I tried restarting, reinstalling, etc, with no luck. Please advise. I am a paying subscriber.
For whatever reason the app crashes and closes whenever I try to search for something. Through multiple versions now.
It’s nota a Real app 2/5
It’s just a poor designed web browser. Many functions are not working.
Worst, when I clicked some links in the page ,it opens in Safari.
So Far Great 5/5
Rather like the old free app before they crippled it to make you upgrade and pay. I finally broke down and subscribed.
App is great but 3/5
I pay $35 a month. I get emails every day from Bloomberg. When I hit the links in the emails, it takes me to the web, where I cannot read the articles.
Please please please— have the emails link to the app.
Or, I’m not sure if this is happening— are you promoting articles in the emails that I have to pay more to read? Ridiculous with an already crazy expensive monthly cost.
cant open links within app 2/5
any link forces me to safari not within Bloomberg app
cant see how to update settings at all
Bobs review 5/5
Always tops - thank you Bloomberg !
App forces you to abandon Safari 3/5
By ricky licea
The app itself is great, but unlike NYT or WSJ apps it forces you to abandon Safari and use the app. I like to open up multiple tabs from the newsletters and read them at leisure, however because the Bloomberg app forces Safari to redirect to the App (often multiple tabs at the same time), I can not manage my reading. Sure, you can bookmark them but then it becomes a disordered mess. I had to delete the app, if like NYT or WSJ it didn’t seize control it would be a five stars.
I’m not a robot! 1/5
I bought a subscription and now the app won’t let me sign in because it won’t let me pass the “I’m not a robot” section where I have to prove myself by identifying traffic lights, crosswalks, etc.
Waste of money
Great but we have trust issues 3/5
I really enjoy the app and the content . Buts let’s speak just about the app from a technical perspective. I hate that I have to login to this app daily and what seems like a couple times a day. Every time I open the app I see my session has expired and I’m forced to login. Now this wouldn’t be so bad but I use a password manager. Clicking the user name field doesn’t trigger the password manager auto fill. Instead I have to click password and then let’s LastPass fill the user pass. However. It doesn’t visibly fill the fields. I have to background the app and then return to it and then see my fields are filled. Finally I can login. But one last step. Each time I login I have to prove that I am human. Everything about this flow is slow and seems out of character for a real time news service focused on speed. My advise to the devs here. Fix the files context so I can let pass managers complete starting with username. Next figure out the defect around needing to background the app and then return to foreground. Finally set a reasonable session time like 1 week, or even 24 hours after last use with a max timeout of 1 week. Kill the are you human stuff. Add biometric signin so we can avoid most of the above and the human stuff.
Thx! And again the content and service are great. Just the tech execution should be reviewed.
Dark Mode Please 2/5
By tyler arson
Dark Mode Please
Too restricted 1/5
By Adam Alf
Limiting access (via paywall) to critical reporting on Covid-19 = zero stars
Live TV does not load 2/5
I’m a digital access subscriber but the live TV just won’t work. It says it cannot be loaded.
No longer able to log in 1/5
Subscribers are not able to log in
New look, new format, terrific! 5/5
We used to use the app just for my wife and I to watch a specific article/topic. We're making hardware changes in our entertainment corner and switched into app instead of watching the usual feed on SLING (which we're dropping for XFINITY pkg giving us internet speed rush).
Wow! New format containing all the info from sidebar & crawl now available...better format than either previous, easier to watch, love it.
To much liberal bias & easy to spot, please stop.your worst then ever bias
Continually logged out 1/5
By the first member
It’s so aggravating to use the Bloomberg iOS app because it feels like every time I go back to use it I have to log back in and the app doesn’t save any of my credentials, unlike other iOS apps. Then, to add insult to injury, I have to endure a Captcha multiple part test to get in. Face ID does not work. They have this locked down tighter than my financial apps.
Stop reading my clipboard 1/5
Stop reading my clipboard on open!! Absolutely zero privacy shame on Bloomberg and Apple for allowing 3rd party apps from reading the clipboard without my action. This is a gaping security risk.
No dark mode and Ads everywhere 1/5
As a paying subscriber why am I seeing ads in the app and inbetween articles? Also, there is no dark mode. the all white everything bleeds my eyes.
Subscribers can’t use? 1/5
By pursuit of appiness
Since the update it no longer recognizes my subscription. Going to be a former subscription if this isn’t fixed immediately.
Way too much ads even if you subscribe 1/5
I thought paying for an expensive subscription would help to limit the amount of ads I see but there is simply no way to turn the ads off
Can’t access 1/5
Bloomberg app does not recognize that I am a member and constantly blocks me out of articles
Battery drain 2/5
I enjoy Bloomberg news. But this app has been crushing my phone battery. Looking for ways to disallow it in background.
Battery draining - please fix 2/5
Pleas fix the background app refresh issue - it is draining battery across devices
Drains battery in background without permission 1/5
The Bloomberg App continues to drain all of my iOS devices’ batteries running in the background, even with background refresh turned off globally on each device. And the app doesn’t even provide a background refresh user setting option. The only way to prevent the battery drain is to manually hard close the app every time it is opened. This is even after two recent app updates. From other reviews, I know I am not the only one suffering from this bug. How does Apple allow this to continue? Yet again I will be deleting from my devices. It’s as if Bloomberg does not want the app to be used at all...
