I've always enjoyed the Today show but usually couldn't watch it because of my early work schedule. I started listening to the podcast which was a great way to listen without interruptions. Now the podcast has been discontinued and I'm stuck with this app. First, there is no way to simply watch an episode, or at least clips in order. Second there is now the same 30 second ad after EVERY clip which makes it almost unbearable to watch. It needs an option for streaming live or full episodes.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it!
There are so many problems with this update. Poorly organized, can't tell what videos are latest? What is the purpose of the split screen? The same flippin' ad runs before each video! Like living in ground hog day! The videos that are offered in the news section are mostly human interest, where's the NEWS? The videos don't okay consecutively, but keep going back to the first one you pick! UGH, why, Today Show!? Why!?
The update/remodel is one of the worst I've ever seen. A few reasons: It used to be that advertisements would play intermittently and now they play EVERY SINGLE TIME before you watch a video. EVERY SINGLE TIME!! And they're 30 second spots, not 10 or 15, but 30!
Second, they used to upload the ENTIRE Kathie Lee and Hoda chat -- you know, the first 10 minutes or so. Now they only let you see little tiny bits of it, if at all. SO ANNOYING!!!!! After writing this review I will be deleting the app.
