Unstable app

This app has been very glitchy for some time. When opening the app to read the news, the screen is blank with bare headlines outlined. The app can take up to a minute to load before anything can be read. Even once the app is loaded, it can still lock up when reading a story and not being able to scroll up or down. I like NBC news but using this app is frustrating. I'm still hoping it gets fixed.

News goes DAYS without ever updating!

Regardless of how many times one completes this APPs "fix it" form, whoever manages the APP, fails to fix the issue of the news updating! This mostly occurs on weekends so one attempts to read the "NEWS" only to find the news is unchanged from Thursday or Friday, through to Tuesday! What good is a News APP with a smattering of news from maybe Tuesday through Thursday? That is not NEWS, but SNOOZE!
Additionally, The so-called news is just fairy-tales through rose-colored glasses! The format needs to be changed; it needs to be hard-charging and hard-edged! NBC NEWS as it is currently presented in this APP, tells me that NBC spends more on its anchors than it does on reporting and investigating. Clean up your act, NBC!

Does anyone at NBC read these reviews?

I like NBC Nightly News but this app is almost nonfunctional. Until recently, it wasn’t bad (not great either) but now, forget it. As other reviewers have noted, the ads run smoothly but when the news starts, there’s often a banner that the network connection is weak. Once you get past that, the video constantly freezes. I’ve tried deleting and reinstalling but that doesn’t work. I love Lester Holt but I’m switching to CBS.
