Ratings and Reviews
This app is almost perfect but not quite
I love the idea behind this app but the execution is just not there. You can’t do anything without the live stream of NBC freaking out! I wanted to adjust my screens light so I pulled down the utilities menu on my phone. When I slid up it sent me straight back to the home page of the app. I went back to watch the stream and it came up with a service error, which always happens. I refresh it and it normally will work but it’s more than just trying to adjust something and the app reopening. I like to rotate and expand my videos but it is so fidgety!! There is no place to rotate the screen or zoom in/ out, therefore you can’t see the titles on news broadcasts, almost all of the time. It is so frustrating that I can’t manually press a rotation button. I’m left with it broadcasted tiny on the upper part of my screen because even when it does rotate to be bigger it almost always will go back to its small size on the upper half of my phone, even when in a horizontal position. Oh and when it falls flat on a surface it does the same thing. As I have said previously, the idea is great but the little errors get super frustrating and the videos don’t load 80% of the time... I’ll still keep this app but with a little frustration. It could all be due to maybe a new update needed or something.
My go-to weather app
I try others but I always find myself coming back to this app for my weather needs. I find the weather information to be the most accurate and reliable. I usually stray away because other apps have nicer user interfaces but accuracy matters most of all. The recent changes to this app have actually taken a step backwards for me. We used to be able to set our start screen to weather or news and I mainly use this app for weather so I am disappointed that I can no longer do that. It would be nice if there were two separate apps and we could just have a simplified weather app. Also, I would gladly pay to remove advertisements. Finally, the weather widget is the best To me because it closely resembles the stock weather widget with improvements. However, the witch it has been annoying me for quite a while because the icons have been inconsistent and sometimes don’t load properly showing just a white square.
Breaking News, Live Updates
NBC is always the first of my local news apps to get notifications of breaking news, live updates, etc. - Literally, their notifications get to me minutes, sometimes even 5-10+ minutes sooner than my other local news station apps on my phone. Most of all, their live feed sets the bar. I have tried live feeds on ABC and FOX from my phone and/or iPad and the quality is just terribly inconsistent - continuously spotty, feed cuts in and out, etc. I will continue to use NBC for all of my news updates. Thank you for investing in user-friendly and reliable software/resources to provide us with an overall great user experience!
