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.

NBC news is great, The app as well…except…

I see reviews here that are up to two years old that address my issues. NOTHING has been done to address the app’s “automatic refresh” boondoggle. This apparent “brain fart” of an idea is, in my opinion, screamingly frustrating! Literally every time I go to take in my daily diet of your news options on my iPad, I get automatically catapulted to an awfully rearranged menu. So many times I’ve been just about to make a selection and then “POOF” it’s gone! At which point I proceed to look for the item unsuccessfully and give up. I give up because of the other problem I have with it, “lousy search options”. Seriously??? This app is from the NBC that I’ve always loved and respected? As per usual, the content etc. are in line with how I’ve come to expect from you folks, top of the line. But these problems I’ve listed are what I’d expect from rank amateurs. (I’m not going into the bugs I’ve experienced, I don’t want to split hairs.) I love you guys. (Loved you better when news was a public service and not a corporate venture.) But even now you are the one I turn to. The best thing going. Please fix this weirdness? I think, by now the public knows how to push a “Refresh” button when THEY WANT.

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!
