What's New in Version 2.0.3
Fixes a crash that sometimes occurred when the app loses internet connection.
No offline mode
New version has a bit fewer crashes but the stream only option is garbage.
NBC eliminated all of its video podcasts in favor of its own NBC news apps. Unfortunately by not providing a method to watch the video when there is no connectivity they also eliminated the ability for many of to watch their broadcasts during our daily commutes. My train service has no reliable cell phone or wifi coverage so streaming video is not an option. Even if I start to stream the video under good coverage it will lose the buffer if I have to leave the app to to check an email or message. This should not happen with modern day multi tasking.
The app is a big time failure because of the inability to download daily episodes for off line or poor connection viewing.
MAKE IT WORK LIKE THE PODCAST!
The podcast was super-convenient, I could download an episode and watch it whenever, wherever. It saved my place indefinitely, and I could skip back 15 seconds with the touch of a button.
The app does none of that. The number of times I've had to find my place again when I want to pick up where I left off in the full episode is a huge waste of time. Even with my wifi working just fine, it freezes up frequently, or (even worse) the picture will freeze while the audio continues (sometimes for MINUTES). Also, clicking on a particular day sometimes shows me a different day's full episode, so there's syncing issues.
WHY CANCEL THE PODCAST??? It was working fine! Heck, I'd rather watch the podcast with ads than this crappy app!
NBC took something that worked very well (NBC Nightly News Podcast) and replaced it with this crap app. I used to be able to download the news podcast whether on a high speed internet connection, or my slower speed satellite internet connection at a remote site. Not any more. This app only works on a high speed connection. Even then it stops and starts.
Another thing is that the video freezes while the audio keeps playing, regardless of my internet connection speed.
Way to go NBC!
