New format 3/5
By Spring pad
Kind of liked the old format better, but this is acceptable.
Since new download each of my stock on my watch list apoears 100 hundred times! Of each stock! What the ??!?
What happened? 3/5
This had been a favorite source for financial news. The listing of articles, the large displays of market activity, and the lack of jumping graphics were easy to read and navigate. Did a twenty-something with ADHD design the new format? Personally, do not need pictures and cartoon-like colors to lead me to information.

They cover news items not covered by others
Stops music when app opens 4/5
Idk if I’m the only one, but whenever I open the app, it stops playing my music. I understand if it is a bug, but hopefully they fix it soon
Why not provide bigger fonts ¯\_ಠ_ಠ_/¯ 3/5
My eyes aren’t so good in the morning so I would like the app to be able to increase the font size.
I cannot cast it to my google chrome cast on my tv.
New Version Is Terrible 1/5
I hate the new version (2018]! Too complicated, not intuitive...too many clicks to get the same info that required none before. To make matters even worse, I’m told there’s no way to downgrade back to the old version.
Stick to the markets 1/5
Lose the politics.. as a Wall Street veteran, we weren’t told who to vote for or what to think, don’t want to hear it from the media. Keep it neutral and objective. Lose the subjective crap. Thanks
Best of all 5/5
By GO BIG BLUE
Best source for market news.
New UI is horrible 1/5
I do not like the new user interface. Hate when apps mess with a good thing. Deleted from IPad and iPhone.
By El D'être
More bond market info please.
Too repetitious 1/5
While there’s always an adjustment period as I learn my way around a new version of a favorite app, I’m not sure I’m going to be able to get past the way this one displays the same articles multiple times on the first page. I liked being able to scroll through a long list of articles on a variety of topics in Top News to get an overview of the day’s happenings. Now I need to link to specific pages to see more than 4-6 articles from a broad area of interest. And of those few, a couple are always repeats from a previous section.
My other gripes: the horizontal scrolling at the top of the page for market listings is slower; there’s no way to close the window after you look at details for a stock listing from a watchlist.
All that said, I’m hoping CNBC is listening and will improve the usability of this now very attractive app. Really, usability should come first.
Put futures back at the front of the markets 4/5
Put futures back at the front of the markets.
Old better 1/5
Old version was better. Do not like new format. Hard to get to where you want to go and see what you want to see.
New app is terrible 1/5
New app is a complete dud. I wish there was an option to go back. Not sure what they were thinking....
Bad Format 1/5
This version as of December 2028, is a bad format. You read the same headline 2 to 4 times in just the first page. Why all this repetition? Before every different interest was in a different Tab, now everything id mixed. And you don’t know where everything is. Went to MarketWatch.
I don’t like the new site format. Please go back to old one
Everyday user 3/5
I really love the CNBC app, but not the new one!
Update wiped out watch list 2/5
Once again, update wiped out my watchlist. Sync button does nothing. App support goes to “page undergoing maintenance”. Tired of having to remake watch list!
New app version would be cool if it ever opened ...takes several tries and minutes to get it to populate and stop spinning. Never had this issue with prior versions.
Are used to love the app now I don’t like it at all 1/5
By T from Tacoma
I love the app Until the changes of about two weeks ago now I cannot configure it to have my watchlist, the news and the market at the bottom of it it’s very frustrating. now I’m looking for another app to get my information from
Also when I pull up a stock quote it does not have nearly the information used to have in that space
Intuitive Data Depth & Presentation 5/5
By LB MacBook Pro3
Easy to track markets 4/5
The only downside is they lean left!
Lease tell both left and right and MIDDLE
Fix the App - watchlist continues have issues 1/5
Lots of issues with watchlist. Common figure it out!!!
Update Gone Bad 2/5
They just updated the App for the iPad and screwed it up. In the Watchlist you create, you cannot cancel a stock display once you click on a particular stock. Before you could click on the stock again or click an X at the top of the display to eliminate display info. Also every time you open the app you have to start over again—it requires several clicks to get to your established stock list. Before it always opened to the list you had set up. Bad update. Yep it is prettier but not more functional.
Recent update 1/5
By Stanza user2
The home section is not well designed and unnecessary. The Top News section has way too many pictures and not enough information, especially viewed on phone.
The previous version was much better and practical.
The latest update is terrible and will not allow me to watch live even though I have an account 1/5
Revised app is horrible 1/5
I have used the CNBC app for years successfully but everything that got me the info I needed seems to have vanished. The Dow, Nasdaq and S and P futures, I’m not finding the implied open. CNBC what were you thinking. App will probably end up being deleted. Not sure it’s even worthy of the one star I gave it!
Ur kidding on the changes? 1/5
I was a daily user of their app until this update. On the iPad u could see your watch list when trading and watch their tv at the same time but not anymore. Now this app has turned into snapshots of videos that take up 90 percent of the screen vs showing relevant news in a small space.
It’s sad really. U. And tell that their dev team does not actually use this app.
Not to mention the iPhone app is gone that use to show your stocks in real time.
Basically, what was a great app is now a difficult to use video snapshot of the news.
Frustrating new version 1/5
Among other things the new version lacks the ability to quickly check the latest news on particular companies you might have in your portfolio. Many stories listed on the company page don’t even mention the company. The older version was not nearly as muddled and was my “go to” app for financial news - this version feels cumbersome and I will be looking for an app with a more straightforward approach.
Hate it to much swiping to find what I need and indexes to small
Worst update ever 1/5
By Gfro Omboy
Too many complaints to list here. I’m just extremely disappointed in this update. The previous version worked great, loaded fast and the user interface made sense (I’m a graphic/web designer). I am now looking for another financial app.
Mumbp jumbo 2/5
By mumbi jumbo
Reading the indices sideways is very weird. Why made the change?
App changes 3/5
I prefer the old app
Slow, bloated, repetitive 2/5
The new app has too many images and not enough content. It loads slowly and often only loads partially. The same story is splashed across multiple sections. CNBC is targeted, presumably, for people who want current/relevant market and business info presented in a concise manner. The current iteration of the app does not meet this need.
CNBC website & App 1/5
Website has recently turned so slow it’s not worth visiting
App and website don’t Connect
App shows company name twice instead of ticker symbol
New format 2/5
Don’t like the new format
21st century 5/5
The new app is very informative and quick, welcome to the 21st century.
By Hi wats up peacesid
Great business reviews if you can cut through the anti Republican crap.
Good job 5/5
By J Ponti
Very good app don’t no what I would do with out it I get all my premarket news early morning Monday tru Friday and futures
No Apple Watch 3/5
No Apple Watch!
Old version better 2/5
Anyone who rates this new version as great apparently never used the old version. I've written to CNBC directly a few times in their "contact us" section. The whole thing is hopelessly cluttered and combersome. The old version more compact and useful. Please go back!!!
CNBC App 5/5
CNBC App is almost as valuable as the daily market programming. In other words it’s great and provides a good tool for tracking investments and making decisions.
Latest update has made it terribly slow 3/5
I love this app and used it multiple times every day. I am able to store all my securities on a watchlist and check on them as I wish. The App update now takes forever to load.
They wrecked a great app 1/5
This is now so data heavy it takes forever to load unless you are on WiFi- this defeats the purpose of a mobile app- really sad the developers and CNBC have done this to a great app
Newest update 3/5
I don’t like there is not option to change the fonts (too big and bold).
Inefficient News Interface 2/5
By J C B .
Compared to the prior version, I find the upgrade less informative without multiple clicks or scrolls. For example, the screens of news stories show two or four headlines with lots of screen landscape consumed by B-roll pictures that are not informative.
The CNBC app has been my go-to source, but I am finding myself leaving to other apps to find the big picture and for vital details.
