Forced video at a cost of 50% of screen space
Latest version = unfathomable interface, whereby half of the app's viewable area is now commandeered for video clips, whether you want it or not. My fav news app has just become a deal-killer for me, like for most other users. On top of that, the half-screen videos sometimes load w just audio, sometimes crash the app, and have a bogus 'close' (x) button that doesn't respond to your wish to do so & get it out of the way. Stunning that this interface could muster its way out of the gate for consideration, much less be presumedly vetted through several channels for actual usage!! Abandon this app, NBC team is unresponsive & indifferent to status quo criticism & bewilderment. Oh, and as a bonus, clicking on a news story often loads a blank page w no content. None. Nada. How inept is that for a national news org? One star, max.
Can be annoying
Have always (usually) been a fan of NBC News, but lately the app freezes, lags, and goes blank when I click on a story. The new stories never seem to load either, they're always stuck on news from 15 days ago. Also, I can deal with ads as banners, but not a fan of the fact that they play 2 min ads before I can see the actual video, which is very annoying! Sometimes ads end up covering what I'm trying to read! And has any noticed that it's getting harder to find the "x" button to get rid of those things?? The app is supposed to make it easier and more convenient to get the news. So far, not happening...
Useless until they fix the video bar
The top half of the entire screen is filled with a video bar of videos I do not want to watch. There is a mark in the center that apparently is supposed to let you drag the lower half to full screen, but when you let go it snaps back. Useless. Cannot even read a story because of the video bar.
