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.
NBC is imploding!
NBC took its podcasts for Nightly News and Meet the Press off ITunes. The recommended substitute was to download the NBC App and stream the shows. I can understand NBC needing to monetize its return on investment and show ads as part of its business model. All that I could manage.
What I can not manage is the breaking up of the show into small segments that do not flow and have so many commercials, it is useless. This App and the way NBC is trying to move its content has so disgusted me that I am deleting the App and moving to another news organization. As a long-time viewer and a loyal customer, it saddens me to see a brand tarnish itself.
Poor planning and awful execution are what I have come to expect from the App and NBC.
Skip it now
I am so frustrated with this latest version – this used to be my go to news app. Unfortunately no it doesn't seem to want to load new news, I will open the app and try to refresh and get it continually shows the same stories for two or three days. Also more and more stories are now just videos. Personally I prefer to read because I can skim and get the gist of the story quickly, so going to be looking for new apps to find my news.
