Needs vast improvement

I wish I had something good to say about this app. My list of problems and dislikes goes on and on. From the crashing to the poor design to the blank screen and constant waiting to load to the lack of ease of use. What's up with this new split screen?? Awful. Just add this to the hundreds of other comments saying similar things. Unbelievable. Disappointing. Shocked that the improvements aren't made after continuing bad reviews. I just want to watch the news. On a side note, what about the Today Show? Would love to be able to catch it on here as well.

Useless with half the screen covered with nightly news

A year ago I wrote as a review:
"It wouldn't be quite so bad if you could shrink the top half of the page so you could see the news, but with that top half forever covered you can't even see the videos or the news stories that are below. Fix this stupid app."

There's been no change. Do you people at NBC's IT department even read these reviews? What's even more frustrating is that the top half is 'yesterday's' nightly news; not even current. I really, really dislike this app. It's gone.

Only half a screen

It's bizarre that on the iPad the top half of the screen is taken up with news video that I don't want to watch, and the stories of interest scroll beneath that. I'm forced to read those stories a few lines at a time. For a moment it looks like the intrusive and unwanted video hogging the top half can be swiped away, but no, it comes right back. What idiot created this useless app, and WHY did NBC sign off on it? Now there's a news story.
