Bug fixes and improvements to UI
Ratings and Reviews
Good news App but radio-feed and LTE flaws
It is essential to be able to access real journalism during this ongoing, right-wing threat to democracy, making the Tune-In audio feed of MSNBC especially important for vehicles.
However, after automatically pausing for Maps audio directions from Siri, the Tune-In radio feed does not resume, leaving drivers fumbling to restart the audio — over and over again. This coding flaw all but renders the NBC News App unsafe to use while driving. Please fix this!
Also, the App drops feeds without resuming them when a device moves from WiFi to LTE or back again. More sloppy coding.
But I respect NBC News journalism and will continue to listen and hope these flaws soon will be fixed.
When “Breaking news” push notifications aren’t breaking news
The push notification options for this app appear to be “all or none”. There is one option in settings for “Breaking news”, another for “Quiet mode”. The problem is, I get tons of notifications for things that aren’t breaking news at all. Some are editorials (notification title starts with “OPINION:...”), others are non-breaking news stories: “Toddler's family grapples with 'unfathomable' loss after her fall from cruise ship”. The app needs a *real* “Breaking news only” push notification option. Until it does I’m about to turn off the app’s notifications because I get far too many non-breaking news notifications.
Minor Issues Make Big Differences
There’s a lot of little things that are annoying. I have this on mobile, and it gets annoying. I can’t figure out how to search, so I can’t see anything but the past two days of news. It gets really annoying! I want to see stuff from the past, almost every other news app has this! It would also be nice to have subtitles on the videos. I don’t always have headphones with me, so it’s difficult to look at certain stories on the go. It would also make everything difficult for deaf people. Most everything else is great, the ads get annoying but it’s fine, gotta make money somehow I guess. Overall it’s an alright app, but these things start to get to you after a while.
