Great App

I don’t allow many apps to send me notifications, however; this app I love getting notifications. I am and extremely busy person and I do not have enough time to try and find time to watch the news. This app sends me little summaries when stories are occurring locally, nationally and world wide as they are unfolding. I can choose to learn more or ignore it depending on my level of interest. The weather is by far my favorite part of this app. NBCs Bob Maxon is my morning go to guy while I’m getting ready for work and what to wear according to the forecast and in comparison NBC is always the most accurate. I also get weather alert notifications. Example: “lighting strikes reported .02 miles of your current location” is an alert I received today among many others leading up to and during a severe storm we were having. Over all I’m very satisfied and would highly recommend it!

Grateful app user

I don’t have cable so I use the NBC APP to watch live and video recorded news as well as my weather! I am always very grateful for any live emergency news and am alerted right away, something you don’t get when you don’t have the app!
I also have the option of either reading or watching the news from my phone at anytime of day or night!
Thank you NBC for always keeping me up to date on news and weather as well as any emergency situations in my state and area.


Perfect app to start the day

This app is exactly what I need. I open it up and see the weather first. It is formatted perfectly so that I can see everything I want to know about the day or week quickly and easily. In fact, I like it more than any other weather I app I currently use. After the weather I simply tap the top right corner and I’m watching the live news. If that wasn’t good enough, there’s a tv schedule for the news channel so I can see where I am in the lineup.
