Customer Reviews

Awful (from a function perspective)

On the positive side I have had no crashes but the app stops playing video via AirPlay when your iPad times out. However the biggest issue is that to watch what it claims is the "full broadcast" it plays one small segment video after another i.e. the clips extracted by NBC News. These are not the complete broadcast and create a disjoint experience with each small video stopping and starting a few seconds later...and sometime not starting at all. Also, NBC has effectively removed some segments that were of interest to us. A poor application made worse by the broadcaster telling you what you should want to view and not what we want. I'd welcome the full podcast back! I'd recommend getting your news somewhere else.

couldn't get any worse

No pause function, if your screen has timed out while displaying a video on an extern all display(like Apple TV), it will freeze and shut down the app when you turn it back on. App freezes and shuts off., and if you choose to watch individual video clips instead of a full broadcast at a time (which you can't pause), you will be watching for 30 seconds to one minute add in between each 30 second to 2 minute video clip. I watched the Nightly News daily when NBC provided it as a podcast, then they discontinued it, replacing it with this terrible app.

What happened?

I used to love this app. Tonight, every story was cut short. I would see about 3/4 of a news story and it would just cut off and show an ad. When the advertisement was over a new report would begin. Before that story was complete, another ad would interrupt. I am so frustrated with this app. I keep using it in hopes that it will get fixed.
