What's New in Version 4.0.1
- Fixed bugs causing crashes
Here's the Thing
Look, CNBC has a pro subscription that is spendy, and most of the U.S. content is increasingly hyperbolic - I long for the days of critical financial journalism on CNBC with the likes of Ron Insana, Bill Giffith, and Maria Baritaromo, but CNBC changed a while back and embraced sensationalism, corporate sensitivities, and ratings over critical thinking. Guess where that still lives today? Bloomberg - no crap, no personalities verging on the shock jock nonsense of Rick Santelli, no overnight diabetes meter commercials preying on their audience. Bloomberg focuses on news and critical analysis of the world, financial and otherwise, that we live in. There is nothing better on financial TV than Bloomberg Surveillance, the thinking-person's playbook of the financial newsday. CNBC somehow has not yet corrupted Squawkbox Europe, but save this, You're better off with Bloomberg. Here's the other thing .... live streaming and show replay on Bloomberg are free. So stop belly-aching over the app, and appreciate what you have for FREE.
Next to worthless app now
Still haven't fixed the most simple problem related to fonts in the watchlist views in 4.0.2. Bad font scaling persists unless your settings for text sizes are at default, confusing differences between portrait and landscape views, can't see desired data in summary view or even change the sort order of the list. Navigation is terrible now and the ads are overly intrusive.
So if you don't like it l, rate it, but also stop using it so their analytics will show the loss of users. Loosing ad revenue is the most effective protest.
So many more things to complain about in the changes made that make this app useless now. The development team leader says they are trying to make a change to support branding and align the app with their web site. Published news looks like they were trying to increase users. Seems like the users complaining are actively managing portfolios and loved using the old app. Analytics need to show them that not all dissatisfied users were as vocal to rate it so low. Someone at Bloomberg is going to realize at some point how stupid this change was, but maybe not in time to save their user base.
A total joke
Ok, so I've never written a review for an app before. The sheer absurdity of this has driven me to writing one now.
After annoying push messages over the last couple weeks asking if I wanted to update the app, I finally did. Haven't been more sorry. I don't know what the fu@# they've done. It's
now a completely useless piece of crap. Honestly, it's garbage. They have destroyed so much value here. Whoever was responsible for this should be summarily sacked and never allowed to touch an electronic device ever again. I mean, seriously Bloomberg. What are you guys thinking? I'd even pay money to have the old user interface back. What the fu@# is it with companies going around trying to fix things which don't need fixing, which work fine and which people love, and then completely fu@#ing it all up? How are they measuring success with this? By the amount of positive feedback and 5 star reviews? I hardly see any of that here. At least I haven't updated to this god awful version on my phone. I can only hope someone in Bloomberg still has half a brain and brings back the old UI.
