Thank you NBC News
I too wrote a negative review of the prior update. I also pretty much stopped using it, where before I was in and out often during the day. My main complaint was the inefficient use of iPhone screen real estate. But fair is fair, and I have to say this latest update is much better. The smaller blocks mean more article headlines appear on the screen. Thanks to NBC News for listening to the reviews - I'm now a fan again. I kinda still miss the black background though!
I've used this app for years. It was usually the first news I would check out each day. Now I remind myself not to open it at all. I don't understand why they mix text stories with video. You click and don't know what you are going to get, and when you have a sleeping baby with you, it matters. Also, the button on some pages to click if you want to read the story, as though my first click wasn't sufficient to indicate that, doesn't work. Completely fed up. Considering deleting it so I don't accidentally wind up clicking on it in the future only to get re-disappointed.
My favorite news app again after latest update
Please check this out again, it's working & beautifully laid out!
NBC news was my favorite news app until the big update a month or so ago. It was a complete failure! It didn't work at all.
I periodically checked it & today it was new again. Up & running well.
