Love it.

I love the app, but there are drawbacks. The weather portion is the part I love the best, especially the live radar, which is great when storms are rolling through the area. The news portion is the part I hate the most, because it will send alerts often, even if they are turned off, although it’s not as bad as it used to be, it still happens once a week, but that’s not enough to make me remove the app though.

I also like that I can watch live newscasts as well, especially with the weather and like how something weather related shown on TV at various times appears in the app within a few minutes.

NBC NEWS APP REVIEW

I like to be informed daily of the local, national, and international news. The news stories are interesting and informative. However, I do wish there would be more positive happy stories told leaving the public the network serves ending the news at the end of the day on a positive note. The magic of the holidays during that special time of year should be felt in the news throughout the year. I have spoken to several Family members and friends who rarely watch the news anymore, because of daily violence, negative politics, taking the place of real life heartwarming stories. So when we tuck our children in bed every night after reading a feel good story, we say “Pleasant dreams.” Shouldn’t the adults have the same happy positive dreams at the close of their day every night when they sleep? I would like to believe that could be true. Pleasant stories! Pleasant dreams to all and good night.

Update seems like a downgrade...

So...I used to love this app. However some recent changes have made for some annoying glitches. Several stories will not scroll up, leaving me unable to finish the article. The new ad format is aggressively large and often in middle of article. Sometimes I scroll up and it goes directly to ad or sponsored story content. It’s becoming a hassle just to read an article! I used to love this app, and I’m hopeful next update will solve the problems. Other than that story content is good, yet sometimes repetitive. It is very up to date, informative (when you can read the full article), and interactive. I really enjoy the interactive ness of several articles, most recently being able to type in your hometown and pull down the wildfires out west and being able to visualize what that would look like in your community.
