Bloomberg App 2/5
New update -Bad, old version- Good. Make a good app complicated. A person could read a snapshot of news in various topics, not now. Also, very expensive monthly subscription for news available on various free sites.
way over priced 1/5
The reporting and news is great, but for $36 a month I would like to see articles about stocks that matter to me. A lot of opinion pieces and some good journalism but if I want to see an article from last year about a company I care about I cant. In return for my $36 I get sprayed with a firehose of news and no way to take a breath and pick through it. I do get the pleasure of google ads placed in the middle of the articles and throughout the app. Its a losing offer.
Terrible UI 1/5
By Tim C 1000
This app is pretty bad from a UX perspective. When you’re creating a watchlist, it’s not easy to update the date you bought shares
They frequently write hit pieces that claim their pieces are well established facts, whereas those who disagree are pushing toxic conspiracies.
Recently, the app just evaporates from view 3/5
From a paid subscriber using an iPad Air: A few months back the Bloomberg app began simply dropping off the screen (leaving me at my "home" screen). This seems to happen when I press a link to open a new page (story, video, chart, etc.). The failure rate is about one in four or five attempts. This problem is unique to Bloomberg ... other apps work correctly. It's very frustrating to use the app now and since no "fix" has appeared in several month's I think it's time to unsubscribe.
Got Bloomberg Market Concepts done 5/5
Cannot help but smile at the ton of information this app and this company delivers every hour!
All negative against the president 1/5
Every time they report news about the president has a negative remarks or negative spin. I just want the facts not your bias. Im deleting the app.
Can't sign in with Twitter 1/5
Can't sign in with Twitter
Unresponsive Buttons on Video Control 1/5
Terrible user interface. Pause and close (X) are not responsive at all.
Commercials—way too many 2/5
By E5 Guy
When a broadcast finally comes on it’s all good.
App much better 5/5
By Rich Rein
Nice app for politically neutral news.
Just discovered the play text to speech. Helpful for catching up on news events.
The live blog is truly great. Wish it could text-to-speech spoke each update.
Trusted and very informative 5/5
By Tito boying
Keep abreast with current event able too see what we facing in the future
It’s really frustrating that you are forced to sit through ads when you want to watch a video on a monthly subscription that is not cheap. I’m canceling my subscription because of this.
Real-time and AH quotes would = 5 stars 4/5
see: CNBC’s watchlist...
Concise and informative 5/5
Very good informative site. Worth the subscription.
Paying for Commercials? 2/5
This app has frustrated me greatly. I am an unlimited digital subscriber and yet I still have to sit through ad after ad after ad. Why? That makes no sense to me and I plan to cancel my subscription at this point because I’m just not sure what this gets me. Also, the app and website look sleek, but I have generally found to be a nightmare to actually navigate for content I’m looking for. It also drives me up a wall that I pay what I pay and yet I can only see excerpts instead of full interviews most the time. I wanted to pay for less noise and deeper insight, I got neither of those two things. If they addressed some of those issues, this would easily be a 5 star review. Remove ads for customers that pay you, and make your video catalog and radio catalog simpler to navigate and more reliable (holy crap do their proxy servers crash constantly).
Almost Great 4/5
Love the content and how user friendly the app is...except for the Bloomberg radio feature. I have to reconnect the radio feature every time I receive a call. It would be nice if the app automatically reconnected after the call ends.
News is not objective. 1/5
News is slanted and not objective. The trust factor is declining.
What a Joke 1/5
Not only do you have to put up with incessant ads, you also are forced to pay to read news articles. Last time I checked this is the 21st century, the age of information- should be pretty easy to hit the delete button and find articles elsewhere.
Top of the world. 5/5
By azad Belfort
The Best of the Best.
By ms retail broker
Lots of good info and news on the markets. Don’t like the new pay for content.
cant login in 2/5
cant login in with my Twitter!!!!!!!pls fix it
Bloomberg: Comprehensive international financial news 4/5
Bloomberg: Comprehensive international financial news
Great read..... 5/5
Clear, concise and in-depth reporting.
Love it! Wish it had a “Dark theme” 5/5
By fantasy footballlerrrr
Love this app! Just wish it had a “dark theme” I end up doing a lot of reading with dim lighting. Please add a Dark theme feature!!
Articles are too liberal 2/5
Factual business info is spot on, however, articles are too liberal. Not true unbiased journalism. Should be down the middle....but probably asking too much from a company owned by a liberal.
Ads on Paid Subscription? 3/5
The app is great. Great content, great layout. But I’m paying $10/month for my subscription and I still get ads? Why? Come on...
I finally deleted this liberal rag when I realized their politics had infiltrated their financial reporting. I don’t care about who Mr. Bloomberg hates this week or next, and could find more objective journalists over at the Enquirer. Pay up and stick with the WSJ.
The website is better than the app 1/5
By Sauce Alan
The layout... for the website is much easier to navigate and more enjoyable. Suddenly it doesn’t work well on my iPad so I switched to the app which functions, but is claustrophobic in its layout and navigation.
Menu bar cut off on iPad Pro and iPhone X and above 1/5
App is not optimized at all for large iPad display and looks like a blown up phone app. Menu bar at the bottom is cut off by virtual home button on newer iOS devices. Would’ve expected more from Bloomberg. With such a high subscription cost, this app should be better.
This was the best 4/5
I love this app.
Wish you would increase the number of free articles. And the paid subscription is pretty prices as far as media content. Not to say it’s not valuable it’s just pricey for anyone on a budget. Maybe an ad supported version is a good idea. Love Bloomberg love the radio and I even subscribe to business week. My favorite media source period.
My subscription is not working on my iPhone after iPhone upgrade
Not iPhone XS friendly 1/5
The bottom of this app is overlaid by iPhone XS bottom bar.
Why does app update every minute? 3/5
Why is it updating every time when refreshing the update page? Using iPhone XS Max and iOS 12.1.3.
What's going on? 2/5
By Jim Grefig
Two, sometimes three, updates per day!
Ad-free App 3/5
By k M Tanveer Anwar
As a paid subscriber I should have an ad-free app. The user interface needs more innovative look so that reader can read desired news easily, current look is not user friendly. There should be option for streaming TV from app (casting)
Great App 5/5
By hello baby hello girl
Great source of independent and thoughtful news!
Can you remove the Ads please since we already paid for the service. 4/5
The phone app UI has lots of space to improve. The ads shows up everywhere and you just can’t skip it.
5.12.8 Won’t Install 1/5
App won’t install newest version.
Update Won’t Stay Installed 1/5
By Steve Doylestown
There was an update today for my iPad. I have installed it six times now. Apparently it keeps backing itself out. I rebooted the device and tried again. It still will not successfully install.
make specific recommendations 3/5
go out on a limb
go to the heart of the matter
stock and other types of investments
otherwise you’re boring and largely
irrelevant to the investors
who make up your viewing ,listening and reading audience
App loading time is terrible 2/5
Anytime I fire up this app, it takes forever to load. I used this app for many years and it used to load pretty fast up until a couple of years ago. Great content but just needs to quicker for startup and navigation.
Membership totally worth it 5/5
By Bigus Chungus
I like it, every weekend it has a great article the journalists find interesting.
Everything is very informative, learning, non biases market data
Great news, ok app 3/5
The proportions are all wrong for the iPhone Xs! The search bar is smooshed against the notch and the bottom tabs guy up against the multitasking line. Plus it rarely shows futures, doesn't give custom ranges, and gives imprecise volume data.
All this app now does is try to charge you 1/5
It’s 35.00 a month minimum which is pretty crazy to me. I’m moving to seeking alpha and business insider. Plus it’s biased reporting “fake news” anti republican and anti trump. Gets worse every update!
Came to Bloomberg for something different than the nonsense on CNN, Fox etc. More of the same on Bloomberg. 24/7 hate on for Trump. I like watching Bloomberg TV but when trying to un-dock the TV and watch as a stand alone while using browser it has problems. Bloomberg should stop worrying about what soda sizes people can drink and spend time improving the app and content. Stick to business reporting and remain neutral on politics seems a much better route to take.
Do NOT bother downloading this app! 1/5
After seven consecutive commercials following launch of the app, and before even commencing play of their programming, I just got tired of waiting for content and deleted this pathetic app.
Friends have told me it’s not particularly stable anyhow, and has to be re-launched frequently … re-initiating the cycle of the string of consecutive commercials!
The app is totally inferior to the one it replaced. That one had extensive information about the guests being interviewed, and did not crash regularly.
Pssh, no highlighting of words 4/5
If I cannot highlight words then how m I supposed to quickly look up words that I don’t understand.
The filing order for saved articles/videos is very strange. I still don’t understand it so in addition to saving I add the article to my Notes app.
Easy to use and understand 5/5
For starters and maybe even pros great app to use
