Ratings and Reviews
Fantastic coverage, no paywall
One of the very best news apps. I prefer reading the news to watching it--this app allows both, and does both well. The widget provides constantly updating headlines when other apps, like the New York Times, have totally abandoned their iOS headline widgets. You can read top stories, including excellent coverage of issues of specific importance to LGBTQ and ethnic minority communities, watch video clips or the entire NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt. Richard Engel's coverage of international news, especially Syria and Ukraine, is unparalleled. There are ads, but they're not intrusive at all, unlike so many other news sites and apps that have become unusable, and there's no paywall. In this era of fake news and alternative facts, this app is a bastion of quality journalism.
Good app but needs fix
I really like this NBC news app. It’s just the right amount of news without the overwhelming and completely depressing, overblown, polarised information of other news apps. I want to be updated with the latest important news; not bludgeoned with gruesome murders, US vs YOU political crap and a TMI style of app reporting that complies a bunch of other nonsense making me feel that human beings are the worst idea ever created! That being said, I have a couple of technical issues; why does it jolt you off the section you are reading ( I assume more stories are being added? ) it is incredibly frustrating to be reading a headline and suddenly your 3 or 4 stories down and have to scroll back to what you were originally looking at. Also, while I love that the content is limited, which makes for a clear straight forward news feed, some of the stories at the bottom seem to never change, so really you end up reading just the upper portion...how about moving those older stories along. More stars when small issues are fixed😉 Thanks for doing the news right!
When I watch the news where adults are getting vaccinated, I cringe every time they jab someone in the arm because they stick the entire needle into the arm. Not every arm has the same thickness. Some have less muscle and fat in their upper arms. Perhaps this is the reason why young children and teenagers suffer from myocarditis. The clinicians are hitting the bones with the needle. They should consider the size and depth of the arm and jab only into the muscle by gently squeezing the muscle before jabbing. Give the shot quickly and then pull the needle out quickly. Just a thought.
