Not a good enough replacement 1/5
By Lazy Robot
I subscribe to businessweek and I used the businessweek app to read articles. They are getting rid of the businessweek app and moving it into bloomberg, but the existing subscription I have does not work. They are forcing me to subscribe to bloomberg digital which is more than 10x the price. Furthermore, this app does not let you set the homepage to businessweek. So they want to extract hundreds more dollars from me and give me a worse app. Why in the f would I do that? Im just going to start getting used to reading businessweek via Apple’s news app, it is a channe there and my subscription transfers.
Same Old App 2/5
Still drops when in use on my iPhone 11 - just like it did on my iPhone 6. They’re never going to fix it.
Great App, great content, needs dark mode! 5/5
Love the app, love bloomberg content, but needs dark mode!
Outstanding, but Pricey 5/5
By Highly Educated1
Bloomberg LP would benefit from additional subscribers if they lowered the price!
By Volvo Austin
This “new outlet” has posted absolutely lies about Andrew Yangs presidential campaign. I believe people should get their news elsewhere. From a more credible source.
Bloomberg Businessweek not supported for download 1/5
By Keith in Tucson
I am a Bloomberg subscriber, this app does not recognize my subscription nor allows down load of my Business Week
Fake news for their owner’s political agenda 1/5
Since Miley has announced his campaign the articles have gotten worse. Stock markets doing great? Let’s run a story on how bad President Trump is doing. All time high? Let’s run a story that President Trump is going to be impeached. China deal? Let’s run a story how President Trump has hurt the American farmers. Lies, lies, and more lies. Sorry people are seeing right through this political bs. If you want an app to watch the market and not slam their owners political views down their your throat. This is not it. I’m deleting this app not that they will care.
How do I turn on dark mode? 3/5
Bye Bloomberg 1/5
I’ve used the Bloomberg app since version 1 on iOS - YEARS. Mainly to do quick market index price lookups and read articles. Over the past couple of years, the news coverage has become blatantly biased toward the left/liberal spectrum, to the point of ridiculousness. Very recently, they have reduced the number of free articles available to just a few.
This is not worth $35/month when there are so many other free/ad-driven, balanced (not Fox) services out there. I’m breaking up with Bloomberg. It was fun while it lasted.
I don’t see the value in this pay for news app 2/5
By Raphael Welb
$35/month ???, $300/yr ???
I don’t see any extra or obviously valuable information in this “pay for news” app that I can’t find in free news apps - CNN, FOX, NPR, USAToday, NBC, APNews, Reuters, ABC, CBS, Jerusalem Post or good financial news apps like CNBC, IPhone Stock Tracker, Yahoo Finace, etc., etc.
I feel like I got tricked into forking out $34.95 just to see what was behind the curtain.
Totally disappointed !!!
Biased liberal news source 1/5
I deleted disgusting anti trump app .... used to be reliable
App stops working ! 1/5
Hi Bloomberg unfortunately there is no way to leave a proper feedback on your app other than giving it a one star review
Unsure if your team checks the app before releasing but it has been a week since your last update and the app has never work. Only a white screen loads up whenever the app is launched !
Blank screen 1/5
By Milkweed Jimmy
Since yesterday January 3, I only get a blank white screen, both on iPad and iPhone.
New update 4/5
My Bloomberg app doesn’t work after this new update!!!
The update removed the P/E ratio from the indexes and made it several clicks for individual stocks 1/5
Tiny, unreadable text 2/5
By pursuit of appiness
Who thought this was a good idea?
Political BS 1/5
This app has become very political all of a sudden.
By Jim Sack
The reporters an anchors are superb, but the commercial breaks are long, repetious and startlingly loud. Every time I click on a commercial plays before content comes on. It is the same growingly obnoxious patter. PSA are ancient. Whoever writes their spots needs to take RTv 101 over. I long for the humor of “I’m a Cat,” although that is Stall as year old Wonder Bread. The current crop of spots are deadly. Breaks are so long it interrupts the flow of programming prompting me to pull my AirPods and do something else. As for the air guests they all speak in the conditional tense hedging their comments and insights to the point of uselessness.
Ad bugs glitch live video feed 2/5
I have a monthly subscription, and am willing to pay more if I could only stop/reduce the sheer amount of ads on the site. I try to watch the live feed, but the way the ads are set to move the screen to the ad content when it pops up totally messes up the live feed, freezing it. Drives me nuts!!! If your going to force ads for things I now REFUSE to buy, at least fix the video so I can still watch it after you shove the commercials down my throat.
Market subdivisions 5/5
By Donyale Green
Will your favorite stock picks offer additional products for the company advertised? If so, what range of flexibility will be produced?
Great programming. 4/5
By November Snow
Qualified, stimulating hosts stick to the point and inform us.
Unreliable So Far 1/5
The live tv severely lags. No matter how great the WiFi or cellular data connections, I have to keep closing the app and opening it several times. Then it will play for about 15-20 minutes, then the feed will freeze, causing me to start the process all over again.
Annoying that I keep getting logged out 3/5
I love the content, but I use the site on the web more because the iOS app keeps logging me out about once a week now. And the app doesn’t properly support the iOS or 1Password login, you have to manually enter the username / password which is annoying. Please fix this. And also add DARK MODE
“Listen” feature crashes 1/5
Both iPad and iPhone app crashes when using the news feed “listen” feature.
I’ve tried rebooting and re-installing app. It has gradually gotten worse. Now it crashes during first news story, when it used to crash on the second or third one.
The Most Political of the business news apps 1/5
If you are looking for daily Trump-bashing, this is the news app for you.
Ads on a paid service is greedy 1/5
I really enjoy the content that Bloomberg provides but that has been completely overshadowed by the invasion of ads. As a paying subscriber I do not want to be flooded with ads.
For a news service that is so expensive, it is absurd to also force ads into your news. It feels cheap to have clickbait slapping you across the face three times per article. There are plenty of consumer financial news that can easily match that of Bloomberg however I really appreciated the content their staff produced. It is a disservice to the writers and everyone else working on the platform by forcing their content to be smeared with ads.
Please make a clean and unadulterated reader and you will have a five star review as well as my subscription back.
Good luck trying to cancel your subscription... 1/5
Customer service is essentially non-existent and it blows my mind. I want to temporarily cancel my digital subscription with hopes of rejoining later when it makes more sense for my situation.
In order to cancel, there’s no number to contact and you have to send them an email via their “customer support” portal. Well, sent them an email and surprise surprise - no response after a week. Sent them one a couple days later and still no response.
With it being so difficult to cancel I doubt I’ll ever want to re-subscribe. Save yourself the headache and don’t get their digital subscription if you can help it.
Good App and drains battery 2/5
While there are things that are good about the app, some certainly can be improved:
1) Battery -
This app wats up battery like a hog. Huge drain on battery even though my phone is brand new. For a perspective, it used up about 5% of total battery life for only 7 minutes of use. This is outrageous by any standards especially if you consider the fact I did not watch any news clips on it. Just simply read the articles.
2) missing sections -
There are sections that are missing on the app as compared to those available on the website
I use watchlist! Clear to check out individual stocks & charts!
Keep losing audio during live... 3/5
Are they broadcasting incidents or the app’s fault???
Unable to increase or change fonts 3/5
I can’t choose my own fonts. Am limited to the small font that is offered.
Even Extra large size isn’t enough to read.
Kindle offers my own fonts.
Great content with buggy app 4/5
I wish that the app wouldn’t be clogged with advertising. You pay $34/month for a subscription and you still get annoying ads. I also found the app to be slow in loading pages. Very slow almost unusable on a slower iPad.
Dark mode 1/5
Need dark mode
Great content, terrible app 1/5
By Ben thistl
The overwhelming ads per hour and shockingly bad interface with any car’s Bluetooth makes it hard to rip up the script and enjoy the high quality content. Seriously - I get a call and have to listen to the same gateway ads from Jay Farner again and again. Huge fan and user of the terminal and TV.
RIP Bloomberg Radio Plus app
$35 a month for this?!? 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).
Fonts too small and light 1/5
By gi f urself
Too hard for me to read. How can i increase the font and contrasts. Other apps are easy to read and adjust.
The app drains the battery and articles are paywalled 1/5
The app background activity consumes more energy than hour long video calls.
On top of it, paywalled articles make it completely useless
Rip off 1/5
Application allows for 5 free articles a month, demanding significant fee for full access. And that’s despite the fact that the app is filled with commercial advertisements. What’s even more frustrating is the overly sensitive interface, which often leads to article being open, while user simply attempting to scroll down, thus reducing the free article count.
Unfortunately, the app has very little to offer in terms of value or original reporting with roughly 80% of articles being simple reprints of other financial news sources.
Doesn’t support Dark Mode 2/5
For what they want us to pay monthly they should at least support native dark mode, this alone is a deal breaker because who doesn’t like to read news before going to sleep?... and it’s so out of control bright white that it’s laughable. The app appears to be written by a 9 year old, and what’s with the ads? I’m paying you (was) for NO ads.... complete disappointment! Very liberal leaning too, I don’t want conservative news I want it centered, non discriminative coverage. I’ll most likely cancel once the promotion expires and just continue with Apple News, best deal out there, at least Wall Street Journal is a little more centered...
Paying again 5/5
By Paying again
I like the app.BUT
I am being charged a monthly fee but my app (which is the only way i access BBG) showed me that i was no longer a subscriber, so i signed up for 2.99 a month (special deal - it was around that number). Ive just been charged another $39.99 to my credit card (monthly charge) as if i was still on the orginal program.
Trying to get hold of someone from BBG to sort this out.
Id like to
Fix App Live TV Ads 2/5
Can someone please explain the live tv ad algorith?!
When live streaming via web, there are limited ads and the live markets keep flipping over on the screen. This is great as I can track markets without changing screens.
On the app though (same goes for the Smart TV app too), each time these live markets start flipping, I get the Bloomberg TV ad on repeat until the live tv show continues. What possible value does this add to Bloomberg? Advertising to an already paying customer while hurting my user experience has a higher probability of my finding an alternative content provider than spending more on Bloomberg. Don’t get me wrong, I understand that ads are important to fund the organisation, but showing the same ad on repeat 15 times in a row while I am using the product that is being advertised is just plain stupid. If you don’t have ads to show, just show the live programming.
What’s more is, now I don’t get to follow market movements while watching TV so now I need to switch between apps to follow market movements too. It is seriously annoying.
I am a big fan of your content but if this is what I have to endure there are alternatives which is less annoying.
Drains my battery 1/5
By Joe in wilmington
I have an iPhone 6 with 128 gig. The app is very jerky (like stuff swapping), the phone heats up, and of course the battery drains- only when running this app. What gives?
Ridiculously Expensive 1/5
Paywalls are really annoying, but perhaps a necessary evil at some level. But $35 a month—totally ridiculous.
Online dictionary doesn’t work on this app 3/5
Online dictionary doesn’t work on this app
I have removed your app because you are against everything has to do with Trump Even, when he is right. This makes you unreliable for everything else and can’t believe in you anything you publish.
Missing symbols? 3/5
Some symbols cannot be found when adding to a watchlist. HRINX or VAGGX
Used to be good 1/5
If you want to sit through 90% of commercials and 10% actual business news, then this app is for you. The app used to be great when you could get excellent business and world news as well as top notch market commentary; however, you now have to listen to commercial after commercial until you get a quick market update or some nugget news before the commercials start again. I’ve deleted and downloaded this app several times hoping “this time it will be different,” but it’s still the same. It’s too bad because I used to rely on Bloomberg for update date business news.
Trash trash trash 1/5
Need I say more .
Unbiased real news 5/5
Bloomberg has the journalists, and a lack of bias, that make it my go to news source.
