App won't stop pin wheeling
All versions of the app I've had so far, over the last 2+ years, won't stop trying to load or at least stop pin wheeling when you load the app by tapping a notification. The pin wheel is extremely intrusive and gets in the way of any and all articles you try to read.
The only way to get rid of the pin wheel is by closing the app via the app switcher and re-launching the app by tapping the app icon.
The app support link in the App Store also takes you to an NBC News page that doesn't give you an option to report the app issue, which, in my opinion, is extremely amateurish.
Until they fix these issues I won't give the app anything more than one star because the app developers should of squashed these bugs a long time ago.
Takes forever to load, scroll
Used to be a good app until recently. Now takes forever to load, then you have to wait another 15-20 seconds to be able to scroll to the top of the page. App support button takes me to a useless page. Looked for a setting option that was text-only in hopes it would load faster, but couldn't find anything. Disappointing since it used to be a good app. Can't believe such a big company is willing to put up with this from their app developer.
Nice design bad execution
Once you tap on a breaking news notification the article or video will have the loading icon spinning in the middle of the screen the whole time effectively cutting off your view of the screen. Also, the widget screen used to be much better. Now it features only one article while the native IOS news app displays 4 or 5 trending articles so I use it more in its place.
