NBC News app reviews

  • Disturbing! 1/5

    By CaptainJack63
    Can't read anything because the ads cause the article to scroll up and down to adjust the page. Constantly have to scroll and hold down the page so it doesn't move but as I lift up my finger is goes crazy. Poor programming!
  • No updated news since 5/11/2018 1/5

    By Kinlep
    Not always reliable with getting the recent news loaded but when the news is up to date it is a fabulous app.
  • Biased coverage 1/5

    By Romie21
    Tired of the politically biased stories. Deleted.
  • Needs Live News 4/5

    By KyleH9
    1. Live TV access with Provider Login 2. Integration with Apple’s TV App Live News Section
  • Wallace on Mueller tonight 1/5

    By Secrteam
    She forgot the fact that all investigations are led by Democratic Donees, and the Lover and his girlfriend were fired and placed on probation. Fine bunch of crap... NBC, Democratic FBI Team, Mueller and Comey,
  • Fake! 1/5

    By MZU987add!
    Fake news!
  • Disruption 1/5

    By Tollenfel
    I like the live news idea, but I find the live audio stream disrupted by dead space too often to rate higher. I would rate higher if developers get this broadcast disruption under control.
  • Not As Good 3/5

    By Ejaazi
    NBC needs to bring back the Breaking News app! That was the best news app out there.
  • Pointless breaking news alerts 5/5

    By The Whole F'N Show
    I grabbed this app, hoping for breaking news alerts. The configuration said that it’d be big news, important news. Then I got an alert about the olympics. Deleted the app. If you can’t configure the app to choose what topics you want to receive notifications on, maybe actually have the news alerts be important. If I want Olympic news, I’m sure you have another app just for that.
  • Too many commercials 2/5

    By CJQW
    I understand that commercials are how the bills get paid. But i just sat through several 30 second commercials in order to watch a few video clips of the Olympics. The “news” clips were uselessly short. One literally lasted less than 3 seconds. A 10:1 commercial to news ratio won’t work. Goodbye app.
  • Widget no longer works AGAIN! 2/5

    By LovinCLE
    Since your last update, the widget functionality on my iPhone 8 no longer works again. This time, I can at least see the stories, but the links within each story headline don’t work. Seems like basic functionality they should be tested before release.
  • Disappointed 4/5

    By Black Buda
    I love NBC News since I was a kid. Been watching since 7:00am today and not one mention of Black History Month...🙁
  • SLOW loading 1/5

    By suzysierra
    This is the last news app I try. Sometimes I don’t bother, knowing how long it takes to load. You wait through lengthy commercials, then it won’t load the stories. Waste of time.
  • Mess 1/5

    By welikemeatloaf
    The live stream on this is the worst. I've just listened to the same sentence 12 times (I counted). Weekends are worse than during the week, but it's bad all the time. Dropped stream, garbled audio, App shuts itself off, etc. I let go of TuneIn, which provides the live stream for this App, for just this reason. It's a disaster. The recent upgrade did nothing to fix. Don't bother with this one...
  • Apple TV App 1/5

    By BainbridgeIslander
    I wish I could give 1/2 a Star. I am a fan of NBC News. But every time I view a news segment stream or news show stream the stream crashes and the app snaps back to the main page of the app. I have deleted and reloaded the app and restarted the Apple TV and still no luck. Very buggy App. Frustrating. Can’t recommend this App.
  • Widget not Working 2/5

    By Ja|
    NBC News widget no longer works. Reads: “Unable to Load.” Please fix.
  • NBC News App! 5/5

    By Wrbellsugar
    Love the NBC News App!
  • Clearly Biased 1/5

    By Morrison.344
    NBC news is clearly biased in the way they report political news. They do not lean left, they are in fact laying down with the Democratic Party. That said, ensure you get news from multiple sources not just this app (The AP and Fox News are good alternatives). They do have interesting views and on non political issues are decent.
  • New update slows app 1/5

    By BikePunkmaggie
    The new update slowed the app so much it is almost not usable. Opening the app, the screen is not response for a long period, same when you switch to another section or the live audio.
  • Fix Audio Issue! 3/5

    By ajcoon
    At some point the app started stealing audio as soon as you open it. I could understand if I clicked on video content but I should be able to read the news and listen to my own music. Please fix!
  • MSNBC Audio 5/5

    By Daisy1960
    I’m thrilled to have the MSNBC all day audio, works perfectly. Thanks!
  • Fake news 5/5

    By Oohrahgunny
    Why don't y'all report on Hillary Clinton and her ties to Russia with nuclear one y'all are just a bunch of pussies that want to attack Trump.
  • Needs bug fixes 2/5

    By rb35pr
    The app loads but quickly freezes and you have to wait like 2+ minutes for it stop. Other then that great app for my daily world news.
  • Crashes constanty 1/5

    By defprinthell
    To the point the app is unusable. It use to work just fine.
  • Looks great on the iPhone X 4/5

    By Markrw58
    I have used this application for a long time and it has never worked better or looked better than it does now on my iPhone X. Keep up the good work.
  • They just updated it & its STILL... 2/5

    By Crowded in the House
    Major lag time loading app & headlines. So launching (or switching to) app results in 15-20 second hang delay before it is responsive. They rarely update the app so you are usually stuck w bugs like this for months on end
  • Good, but not perfect.... 3/5

    By scotthilt
    This app is good, but not great. - Home - The home tab is good, but I wish I could customize it a little more by adding, removing or at least reorganizing sections that matter to me. - In Depth - This tab is great and I see no issues with it. - Sections - This tab needs to be redesigned. It’s current layout leave a lot to be desired. Not sure the vertical layout is needed here. Also the Live Video option does not work. - Shows - This tab needs to be redesigned. It’s current layout leave a lot to be desired. Not sure the vertical layout is needed here. - Misc - Wish there was more local news and weather via local affiliates. There should be a Local tab along the bottom that can use your location (or zip code) to connect you to local news. Widget does not work. All I see is “Unable to Load”. Live Audio is really nice for when I’m on the go or working out, but would love if Live Video worked also for times when I can watch.
  • Pauses music in the background 1/5

    By P and P
    This seems to be a common issue with Nbc apps. My local station keeps having the issue where it pauses background music. Even with no video stories. Just launching the app pauses background app.
  • Enjoying the new Live Audio 5/5

    By Lenitaly
    I don’t have a provider. My access to TV is either rabbit ears or through my iPhone. So, there are a lot of programs I either have no access to or delayed access via a recording. I am thrilled that NBC News has added a new live audio link. A lot of times, I don’t care if I can see it (and may not be able to), but I can stay up to date by listening. Thanks for live access to some of my favorite news shows!
  • Top Story in Country Missing 1/5

    By RCRE
    Clinton collusion with the Russians exposed and nothing mentioned about it on NBC app.
  • When? 5/5

    By Six2guns
    When is NBC going to cover the Hillary &DNC fake dossier? How about funding with Russia? Russia, Russia, Russia, now nothing? Come on major news network!
  • App is crapp 1/5

    By Tmmmandm
    This app doesn't stop spinning. Won't load fully. Stories haven't updated in two weeks popular ribbon is broken fix it It's been a crap app for years. Gotta delete
  • Never ending spinning pinwheel 1/5

    By Indy Don
    This needs to be fixed soon. Loading stories results in a lot of lag that I don’t remember before last update.
  • Extremely slow 1/5

    By Jce777
    I like NBC news, but this app makes it extremely difficult to get to the news and navigate where I want to go. It is hardly worth using.
  • Lester Holt 1/5

    By Hawk FURMAN
    Lester Holt and his fake news makes 70% of Americans upset
  • Wheel spinning incessantly 2/5

    By Liiiizyyyyyy1
    Can still read around it but very annoying. Please fix.
  • Apple TV app crashes 1/5

    By idagreg
    Great format for Apple TV but for the past couple of months video stops and screen returns to main menu.. very frustrating.
  • Nice design bad execution 1/5

    By DATC8canote
    Once you tap on a breaking news notification the article or video will have the loading icon spinning in the middle of the screen the whole time effectively cutting off your view of the screen. Also, the widget screen used to be much better. Now it features only one article while the native IOS news app displays 4 or 5 trending articles so I use it more in its place.
  • Great app. 4/5

    By MattB206
    I have no issues with the app. I've had it for a while now so everything seems fine. I do wish there was a better layout, something like ABC that is more organized and smooth.
  • So slow to load 1/5

    By knockyknee
    The content is great but I have never seen an app so slow to refresh. There is something wrong with it.
  • Ad pop ups, slow loading...FRUSTRATING 1/5

    By Joe from Hollywood
    Title says it all. The app is too frustrating to bother with. Deleted.
  • Great if you like ads 1/5

    By Jksofla
    This app makes it frustrating to read articles. Ads are constantly popping up. I rarely use this app because of this.
  • Takes forever to load, scroll 1/5

    By Smccc smccc
    Used to be a good app until recently. Now takes forever to load, then you have to wait another 15-20 seconds to be able to scroll to the top of the page. App support button takes me to a useless page. Looked for a setting option that was text-only in hopes it would load faster, but couldn't find anything. Disappointing since it used to be a good app. Can't believe such a big company is willing to put up with this from their app developer.
  • Terrible App! 1/5

    By JoeBot 2.0
    It's as if they actually do not want you to use their app. App doesn't work here and doesn't work on Apple TV.
  • Litlwon 1/5

    By Litlwon
    Get some new stories. All articles towards the bottom of your list are OLD. Get newer ones or get rid of them!
  • Ahh I see.... 1/5

    By Michhop
    Pretty much worthless ...as is noted by others it only updates if your sitting on top of an LTE tower then it will take forever ....must have been invented by some one never off a very high speed wired network ....not a mobile app you will get no news here. A television news wanna bee everything is video that never loads and you're news updates may take a week. Garbage.
  • Add me to the unhappy group 1/5

    By Jebswebs
    Latest version has a bug that causes the "updating" icon to continue to spin thus blocking the content. The "support" link goes to a page featuring Brian Williams and dated 2012. #fail. I've deleted the app completely.
  • Latest update 1/5

    By SAGuy78209
    What happened? The app was working fairly well before the May 12th update. At times the updated information would sometimes be slow to upload taking up to 20 to 30 seconds. After the latest update it takes much longer and frequently freezing up! SAD!
  • Any NBC/Universal app is crap!!! 1/5

    By RandallMarlon
    Doesn't matter if its E!News or NBC News, if it's by NBC universal it will take forever to load, take forever to update, and lock up constantly. I am uncertain why the NBC Universal CIO still has a job. Wonder if he/she worked at British Air before NBC Universal.
  • App won't stop pin wheeling 1/5

    By Chriskelly82
    All versions of the app I've had so far, over the last 2+ years, won't stop trying to load or at least stop pin wheeling when you load the app by tapping a notification. The pin wheel is extremely intrusive and gets in the way of any and all articles you try to read. The only way to get rid of the pin wheel is by closing the app via the app switcher and re-launching the app by tapping the app icon. The app support link in the App Store also takes you to an NBC News page that doesn't give you an option to report the app issue, which, in my opinion, is extremely amateurish. Until they fix these issues I won't give the app anything more than one star because the app developers should of squashed these bugs a long time ago.
