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.

Info is good. Delivery is lousy

Many articles require waiting 15 seconds for an ad to run before the news video. If I wanted an ad to run every time I would just google “show me ads”. I want the news. And the ad seems to be the same for every news story. Other news outlets seem to get their news up faster so I usually start with CNN which is just as bad with video ads.

PLEASE add a search function

It’s a nice way to get news and it’s free. But there NEEDS to be a way to search for articles. I frequently will have clicked on a notification to read an article and some problem causes me to go back to the home page of the app (sometimes I didn’t finish reading the article before spending an extended period of time with the app minimized, or sometimes when I click a notification it doesn’t actually take me to the article) but if the article isn’t on the home page and I don’t know where to find it in the explore tab, there’s no way for me to get back to it. This is less pressing, but it would also be nice if clicking links inside an article that lead to another NBC article would open up that article inside the app rather than in my browser.
