What's New in Version 5.4.2
Bug fixes and performance enhancements.
Update Ruins User Experience
Ever since this app was updated with the new UI everything has gone down the drain. The content is there to read, BUT it requires work. This app has lots of user annoyance features, like scrolling through a news article, and then all of a sudden having the page jump to the next article (you know because you can continuously scroll to the next article because hitting back is way too hard). Ads will pop up in the middle of reading my article and will move the text from my reading view!!! What is that?? Or the ad will appear, shift my view, thus triggering the page to change to the next article. It's obnoxious! Fix this app, you guys make so much money, hire better developers, or managers. The UI is fancy, but not useful. The purpose of this app is for the user to read articles and view ads that make you money, not to irritate me. Switching news apps.
Horrible- Needs lot of work
I thought that the Fox News app was bad but NBC is worse. Since the last update, videos take forever to load. The but with arrow keeps spinning around forever. Secondly, I hate the fact that when videos do play, the NBC app automatically takes you to the next video. I prefer to select the videos that I want to watch than have the NBC app dictate what to watch. Last time I rated the NBC app over a year ago, I gave it 4 stars. Now it deserves -1 star.
Who's monitoring this app?
I don't seem to have the video issues with this app, but very little effort seems to go into updating the news on the app. The same invitation to tour Linda Hogan's home has been on there along with other items in that section for about a month! And don't get me started on the grammar and typographical errors.
