Can’t search? 4/5
App not intuitive. No idea how to search for articles
FIX IT! NOT WORTH SUBSCRIBING 1/5
It’s so broken B/I’s CEO should be beyond embarrassed about such a pathetic product.
For a renowned media organization fairly recently acquired by another major conglomerate, this app is not even worthy of being on the App Store.
I used to rave about B/I, now I’m ashamed I keep trying to make it work.
Regurgitated stories from weeks ago and literally smothering us with paid ‘insider picks’ that makes me feel like I’m in the checkout aisle at a grocery store: “Top 20 Sunscreens” (IN OCTOBER!!??).
This is a sad demise of a once respectable and respected source of good unbiased news: The End.
I could tolerate the super liberal bias, but geez, the functionality...forget it.
Wut happened? 1/5
By memphis miss
This used to be a halfway decent news app. Now it won’t update. Deleted and reinstalled and nothing. And since no response from them to other reviewers, I’m sensing they don’t care. 🤷♂️
Great if you want to know last week’s news 1/5
Stopped updating October 9
does not work under iOS 13.1.1 1/5
Used to work up to 12.
Worst app ever 1/5
Worst experience of my life. Terrible user experience.
Links to stories stopped working, other issues 2/5
Links to stories stopped working
Last week, the headlines stopped updating randomly
The app always turns off my music
And the links to play videos from embedded tweets never work
Good content, god-awful tech 1/5
+1 to all the reviews above this one about the app being among the worst I've ever used. All sorts of bugs and crashes and poor performance.
What happened? 1/5
Crashes constantly or simply won’t load. Used to be a great app.
Doesn’t work on iPhone 11 pro Mac 1/5
Please fix app soon. Nothing loads
Hasn’t updated since Oct 7 1/5
Getting from bad to worse 1/5
This used to be one of my favorite apps. Hands down. Ever since they started trying to monetize it has been a train wreck. First the search disappeared. Then you got nasty inline commercials which auto-play and mess with your music (music sound gets lower because you hit a commercial). And now finally the app thinks it is not connected to the internet and has trouble fetching content. Deleted, reinstalled, still same thing. Deleted permanently ... I guess I finally had enough!
App not refreshing? 1/5
This app won’t update articles and news stories. I’ve got news from 4 days ago at the top and it won’t refresh? I’ve tried everything trying to troubleshoot it from my iphone 7’s end, but this app simply isn’t updating and it’s extremely annoying because I do enjoy BI’s content. PLEASE FIX YOUR $#!][% APP!
No longer refreshes. 1/5
Poor excuse for a news app. Won’t refresh at all anymore.
Poor App Functionality 1/5
The developers just can’t seem to get it right. This app has been problematic for years. If it isn’t the constant crashing, it’s that the stories don’t load and your left with days-old content for a week. As it stands right now, when I load the app, the top stories are from four days ago and I try reloading and get the same thing. Get it together, please.
What Happened? 1/5
This is my go to for news. Every morning and night for several years. Over the past few, it’s been so aggravating to use.
I’ve had so many problems and I think surely they’ll fix this. Shutting off. Links not working. Twitter post links in articles- hasn’t worked in a year or two. Losing saved articles. Video links and Ad sounds that seem to have their own mind. The constant nuisances I’ve overlooked.
But, when I come here to get some help because the app won’t update for 8 hours at a time and the developer link shoots me out of the App Store to my home screen... what a terrible joke this application is.
Best terrible app (ditto) 2/5
Can’t stay logged in - I have BI Prime.
Great content but irritating audio manipulation 3/5
By Alan Huffman
I have been an avid user for years and am a fan of the content. But recently the app has been modulating my phone's volume (turning it down while the app is open) or autoplaying ads and muting what I'm listening to. Super irritating. I may revise my review to 1 star and find an alternative. Otherwise it's a good news app.
Figure it out 1/5
The liberal talking points are laughable on this app. BI makes CNN and MSNBC look like the Sean Hannity show. The liberal bias is so bad and they’ve lost their way. Focus on being the “Business Insider” and check your political opinions at the door. I get the impression they’ve hired a bunch of kids right out of their Ivy League schools to write their drivel.
Bug when reloading news & Force Quit ; iPhone 11 Pro. 2/5
Pls Fix it!~
Consistently logs me out 2/5
By Punchy kool aid
If I enjoyed logging in time after time to my BI account, this would be a give start review. But as it stands, I would personally prefer to just log in once, so I'm giving in a lower review
Focus on business 1/5
Stop the left leaning political spin. Work harder to find unique and interesting business insight and you’ll likely find your subscriber base grow.
App has been / continues to be junk. 1/5
Content is great. App functionality is garbage. Has been for years now.
Sonam Sheth Propaganda 1/5
The woman is so biased it destroys the whole BI experience. It’s as those she has dedicated her entire existence, 24-7, 365 days a year to smearing Trump or anything pro-Trump. She posts multiple opinion pieces a day based on whatever pops into her head. A textbook example of what’s wrong with journalism today.Very annoying. Close to deleting the BI app.
Good other than the paid articles 2/5
I have always loved it untold you’ had to pay.
Liberal news media. 1/5
BI needs to be neutral in their politics. Now I don’t know what to make of any articles I read. Am I reading facts or something made up?
BI from my Recliner 5/5
Great alternative Read.
Stop taking over audio when just browsing articles! 1/5
Stop taking over audio when just browsing articles!
Why I'm not receiving any notifications on my iPhone 7?
Why state what the article is about in the bullets, then write the same thing in sentence further down in the article.
Quality Decreasing 2/5
The quality of articles has decreased drastically. I use to love this app, as it wasn’t so biased. Nowadays it seems like there’s a bitter democrat running the page. Bloomberg has been my go to lately. If I’m gonna to pay for the articles, I want them as unbiased as possible. Bloomberg seem to post facts as BI seems to post feelings and emotion. (Or anything that generates a click) I rarely come on here, but a pop up on my phone asked for a rating, so here I am.
Biased reporting 1/5
I am deleting this app. Reason is your article on Trump saying Alabama could be hit by Hurricane Dorian. Your article indicates Trump refuses to admit he was wrong. You are wrong because initial tracks of the storm showed possibly of the storm tracking across Florida which indeed could have affected Alabama. I am just tired of the liberal press bashing Trump as this article truly does. Shame on you.

Reliable source of news.

Add 1oz business. Stir in 5lbs political opinion, blah blah blah. Tiresome.
Fix google login for BI Prime members 1/5
By Sal Hab
Super annoying bug.
This is basically yet another leftist news outlet. Less market focused but very political, extreme left.
Business Insider! 5/5
By Chris Milbourn
Business Insider is a really good news source!
Has gone down hill 1/5
Was nice in the past but now they’ve loaded it with ads and constantly forcing you to subscribe to their prime service. Deleted it!
Nearly worthless 2/5
By oy vay this is bad
Unoriginal and unimaginative reporting, full of advertising. Once in a while actually has an interesting story written in high school English; otherwise poorly written and abysmally edited. I should ask for my money back, but, o, wait, it’s “free.”
Trumps talking disgustingly about Cummings & Baltimore after listening to Fox News 5/5
It was interesting how he has started other vicious attacks after watching Fox’s news programs.
Wish he respected the office of the presidency & other people. He acts the victim so often. He has the biggest bully pulpit & victimizes anyone who doesn’t Kiss his narcissistic behind.
Kat Tenbarge does a good job. I read all her work.
Becoming like wacko left wing web sites 2/5
By wack jobs
Extreme bias, just deleted app!
Ads are breaking the app 1/5
This has now happened multiple times a pop-up ad will take over full screen of my iphonex while reading a story in the BI app. It basically kills it and the only way to recover is to refresh the application by removing. Seems like the whole platform is incredibly unstable. An ad should always have an X that becomes active after 10s or so. In this case it just destroys the UI/UX. Nice implementation!!!
No longer works on iPhone 6 (iOS 12.3.1) 1/5
Stopped working after update, shows BI splash page and sits there until killed.
Off late there are a lot of improvements but the app is still buggy. Biggest of em is the advertisements. You wont be able to close them without exiting the app.
Informative to the point transparent news
Not free 1/5
