Hard to get set up on all mobile devices
Latest version is a nightmare 1/5
They updated the app and introduced tons of bugs. The portfolio view moves total fund performance as of it was a stock. Total performance used to be stuck at the top of the screen. Crashes all the time. Terrible update.
One star for app. 5 stars for content 1/5
I can’t believe that Bloomberg can’t invest in a good app developer. This app is bad, crashes, freezes, full of ads even though you spend $34 monthly for content. Constantly tells you that you are using an old browser when you have the latest browser installed on your iPad. This is the same story by the way for the android app. They need to get rid of the geeks that can’t develop a stable app. I am interested in reading the content vs trying to get this app working
Will Drop this subscripton 2/5
By G Salinas P.
I will unsubscribe for two reasons. 1) Bloomberg is to politically inclines, I want objective information not a partisan View. 2) Bloomberg makes it expensive and complex to access with unfriendly access requirements and double checks. It's just not worth the hazle.
The app has been crashing for several weeks now when I try to look at the Businessweek magazine archives and download/delete issues. This happens on both my iPhone and iPad, and I can only get it to work intermittently, so I assume it’s an issue with the latest version of the app. And, as others have mentioned, for the prices we pay for our subscriptions, I expect better.
In this case listening is for me better than seeing, so I prefer to tune it at Sirius
Great News 5/5
Too many ads 1/5
I pay monthly for Bloomberg, but every time I want to listen for a couple minutes I have to listen to several minutes of ads. It’s pretty crazy because I can just listen to a different source without the terrible ads. At least have an ad-free version. This is why I’m ending my Bloomberg subscription.
Too many ads 2/5
By Kevin Cahill
The news is good but there are too many commercials. And the video feed stops whenever anything of real interest is being announced. What’s left is just reading the articles.
Slow and Freezing 1/5
The app has become resource hungry and freezes a lot. Performance improvements according to its version history cannot be noticed. To the contrary, the device gets very hot after just a few minutes of reading. Support from the developer is miserable as well. It’s a pity because the content is top.
Why is the app so slow? 1/5
Why is the app suddenly so slow? I have to tap multiple times on an article for it to open - sometimes tapping on title works, other times only tapping on a picture works. Used do work well, now it’s super slow and annoying. I usually run out of patience for it to load and just go to WSJ
Deals section 1/5
Can you add deals section in the app?
Can’t Play Videos 3/5
I tap on videos I want to watch and nothing happens
Tracking is very disappointing 2/5
I block trackers on iPhone. The Bloomberg app will not let me log in, as the login screen is intercepted by trackers from a company called PerimeterX, with whom I have no relationship nor interest in.
This is an app I pay for that is asking me to be tracked to access my paid account. I do not want to be tracked nor do I want to see ads on a service I pay for.
Please re-think your processes and priorities from the view of the customer.
Slow and non responsive 1/5
Pay 35 a month and you still get adds. The app takes several seconds to navigate after you hit a button almost every time. Just slow and delayed and it’s too frustrating to use.
Slow, slow, slow and getting worse with each update 1/5
Did I say this is one ponderous app? It is slow to load, slow to move between tabs, slow to download its numerous ads. It is an awful app. I pay a steep annual subscription price. This should be faster, like pretty much every other iPad app I own. The web site version of Bloomberg doesn’t suffer from this poor design. Bloomberg should fire their development team and replace them with competent coders.
Paywall even for paying customers 1/5
Pretty absurd they paywall their own paying customers. $35 is already a lot per month for fairly generic news, especially when you consider you can’t even access all their content as they paywall articles just for Bloomberg terminal subscribers.
Best contents, mediocre App interface 3/5
Great contents, need to improve on App UI
App is very glitchy 1/5
Paper edition much better do not recommend
AppleTV app has choppy playback 1/5
The appletv app has playback issues since the last update. Please fix it!
Too many ads 1/5
You would think $40 a month should be be enough to satisfy these guys, but nope, they throw multiple animated ads in the middle of every story.
By Elvis Bird
Simple, valuable and reliable information ..!
Good content, poor experience with the app 5/5
Bloomberg has content that I like to read.
The iPad app, though, feels like it needs a lot of work. The main issue is that scrolling a page is very frustrating - jerky motions every time.
I must say that my iPad is older (although with an up-to-date operating system) so maybe after I get a new one it will improve.
Great for anybody! 5/5
After first downloading Bloomberg some of the magazine articles, market updates and data were overwhelming. Though, after subscribing for a few months I have a little bit of a better understanding of economics, international politics and have read great articles on topics ranging from North Korea to the Opioid epidemic. According to my perspective very accommodating to people of all political beliefs (I guess as this is business focused and not liberal/republican etc) and great to read.
Dark mode missing 2/5
By Tim Zheng
Please add dark mode, or something for long time reading.
Too much ads. It loads slowly.
Watch list cut back. 5/5
By C's guy
By cutting back the watch list allocation to 2 lists Bloomberg has driven customers to use CNBC and Yahoo and others. Suggest restoration of former policy.
Continually logs out 1/5
What a crap app. Continues to log out every time. Please fix it
Poor ability to share articles 1/5
Links are not copied as URLs but as rich text with a link attribute which cannot be posted into apps that don’t support rich text like iMessage.
Unexpected from a reputable firm 3/5
Consistent with most reviewers, Bloomberg publishes quality content and remains a reputable source of financial news but the app has been consistently terrible being buggy, often resource hungry draining battery just by reading news, hugely inefficient search function, even for company related news.
No dark mode? 1/5
I like to read at night but not with this turkey. I can’t believe that there is no dark mode.
Riddled with Ads 2/5
Boomers ain’t your main source of income much longer. Nobody wants to pay $400.00+/year and read articles riddled with ads. Plus, Bloomberg just really isn’t all that good for market news. Reuters is better (and free!). After this trial is over, you couldn’t pay to keep me reading from this trash app.
Slow and buggy 1/5
Takes longer to load content than any other app of mine. Erroneously selects articles when you’re merely trying to scroll down the page. Sooo annoying.
Great app, but terrible battery consumption 2/5
This app hosts a wealth of incredible content, yet its videos consume so much battery. Clearly it needs an eye from its tech team.
Ads? Seriously? 3/5
Dudes, I’m a paying subscriber, please offer another tier with no ads. I’d be willing to consider paying more.
Horrible new background music 1/5
The new music they have now with music flash or weather etc is horrendous. Sounds like a cheap radio channel from the 80s
Remove Ads 3/5
Why are there Ads in a PAID subscription? Just raise the price instead of putting in 2-3 ads in article consisting of 5-6 paragraphs. The content is beyond amazing but the ads completely RUIN the app.
Doesn’t Reconnect 3/5
I like to listen to Bloomberg Radio. This app makes you watch an ad before it opens. That add sometimes likes to hang up in the transition to Bloomberg Radio. I have to restart the app. If I need my phone audio for something else momentarily, the app doesn’t reconnect to Bloomberg Radio when I’m finished. I have to close the app and reopen and suffer through the opening advertisement before getting back to Bloomberg radio and by that time I missed what I was listening to.
I subscribed but can’t access premium content 1/5
I cannot access the premium content although I have subscribed for the service.
Great hope, even greater let down 2/5
By Brazing Cannibudlight
News as soon as it’s hot and fresh out the oven is of high importance to me. Why I was highly disappointed to find out I missed a golden opportunity all because the news was posted on the desktop version, but not the app. Then they want you to subscribe, for what exactly?
App Not Functional 1/5
I love Bloomberg but this app makes me want to pull my hair out. I have to log in over and over again, each time with captcha images that don’t work. And every time I log in I get kicked back to the main page, and have to go hunting for what I was trying to read. Please fix this! It’s a total nightmare
I’ve subscribed through Bloomberg site ( All access )
Now I having ads on the and in the App.
I need a fix for this problem please
No Integrity 1/5
As expected, controlled by big money, and willing to post anything that sides with the views of the highest bidder.
No value 1/5
I am not getting any hot news alerts..time is critical for me..website is clumsy..

I LOVE IT...
Thank You, Michael B. -
‘5-STARS’ - EXCELLENT!!...
And ‘VERY-GOOD WORK’.
Nice but $$$ 3/5
Very good news source but wish it was more affordable... 35 bucks a month for a newspaper is just high...
Annoying daily purchase restore required 3/5
Very on brand for Bloomberg, but really, other subscription services manage to verify your subscription without annoying the crap out of you.
Not friendly 2/5
Dont like cant read magazines
Was user from business week since 95’
Definitely beneficial & worth the subscription!
Does not update UST Rates properly 1/5
UST Rates are in two different locations and often show significantly different results. Unbelievable how something so simple doesn’t work properly.
