Very disappointed The app freezes and play the video as Going to delete       Susan
072015 app works off and on but mostly OFF boo crashes video wont load if you stop commercials you wont get video back HA HA    Dont Waste Your Time
Half screen Who programmed this mess Clearly people that dont use it    An utter worthless piece of garbage
Every time I want to watch a video I have to watch a stupid 30 second ad And if I want to rewatch the same video I have to watch the same stupid ad again Thank God Im on Sprint and dont need to worry about data But the frequency of ads is totally ridiculous    Ads are ridiculous
So much freezing on second level that I usually cant read half the stories Please fix this    Cant read the stories
I dont know if its my phone iPhone 4 thats the issue or not but this app takes way too long to update Ill open the app and then have to wait a good 1015min till the content updates SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME          Impatient Reader
Who at NBC do I have to sleep with to get this app to refresh    New news
Hey look its still broken What a surprise Nbc cant get their act together with this app Videos never seem to work You sit through an add then get an error message Also most times stories dont even load Click into a blank page Way to go NBC What a piece of garbage app    Terrible
Crashes small screen when it works Also many of the same from other reviewers NBC are you listening to all these negative reviews Fix your app I am deleting it now    Horrible
I dont 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 Hogans home has been on there along with other items in that section for about a month And dont get me started on the grammar and typographical errors       Whos monitoring this app
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    Horrible Needs lot of work
Im finally deleting this after having installed it deleted it and reinstalled it on several occasions The app is simply not dependable Sometimes the videos work but most of the time they dont load I can read other news articles but if I go to click on a video it usually only plays the audio feed Very disappointing       Works sometimes
This app freezes every time I try to use it    Junk
This app was clearly made by third rate coders over a lunch break as it more often than not wont even run it locks up constantly and it takes minutes to update its news feed Whoever made this should be ashamed of their work as it is not acceptable for a major news company This is equivalent in quality to a student project in an undergraduate babys first coding class    Horribly Programmed
bad app    crashes constantly
Seriously This is from the NBC They would do better to just delete this mess BTWFace the Nation is nowhere to be found on this app    Cant imagine a worse endeavor
I cannot tell you how much I abhor this app Truly it gets worse every time I open it Really cant understand why the reviews continue to be so bad and the app is not changed Users are telling you what they want Please listen    Needs vast improvement
If you like wasting your time watching the same 30 second ad for each and every video videos that arent usually worth your time to begin with or better yet dont load and you need to refresh the video and watch the ad again this is your news app    Crazy long ads per video
This app is terrible NBC Nightly News takes up the top half of the screen Why The news stories are on the bottom half of the screen and it is annoying Fix this app    Terrible
Im sorry I updated this app It wont open at all now I deleted it and downloaded it again and it still wont open It worked fine before the update    Bad
HAVE YOU HAD A HUNCH THE US NEWS MEDIA IS RIGGEDWellABC News executive producer Ian Cameron is married to Susan Rice National Security AdviserCBS President David Rhodes is the brother of Ben Rhodes Obamas Deputy National Security Adviser for Strategic CommunicationsABC News correspondent Claire Shipman is married to former Whitehouse Press Secretary Jay CarneyABC News and Univision reporter Matthew Jaffe is married to Katie Hogan Obamas Deputy Press SecretaryABC President Ben Sherwood is the brother of Obamas Special Adviser Elizabeth SherwoodCNN President Virginia Moseley is married to former Hillary Clintons Deputy Secretary Tom NidesAnd now you know    Pimped
Could someone tell me WHY is The Nightly News video is not available    Where is The Nightly News
The app only displays half of the screen when playing video just recently started please fix    Half screen
Chronically locks up on your iPhone a nonexistent problem before the update Happens frequently now locks up when you choose a story continues to do so until you reboot your phone Also locks up EVERY TIME you click a link that is a TODAY story Lame So Very Lame    CHRONICALLY locks up
It is impossible to view any of the stories comfortably    Current version is worthless
I used to be able to download the podcast and watch on my morning commute I miss that The app is super buggy It freezes Sometimes we get a video clip for one story with an audio clip for another Some days the broadcast isnt posted The commercials rarely play correctly Its just painful    I miss the podcast
This app is slow to refresh itself with current content when launched It also tends to freeze when an article is opened to read I like the format and content I just wish the bugs were worked out    Some bugs and freezing
I use NBC app in windows phone and Google phone but iOS NBC app was first time I cant find font size option No font size setting Even windows and Google phone does it          Font size setting not available
Alas there is no such thing as unbiased news journalism in America any more The news has adopted the same mechanism used by our legal system of justice where two sides of a story are reported with little attention to veracity and the public is left with the burden of ascertaining the truth This is not how our founding fathers envisioned a free press    NBC has become the counter to FOX News
I checked again complaints keep coming in about the use of half the screen for videos Come on NBC address this major flaw Once again I will delete the app from my iPad and hope someone listens to all the complaints and update the app to make the video section optional    NBC Address the number one complaint
Hey weve really done a great job putting together some fantastic content folks Night after night Award winning stuff An iPad app Nah That mobile Internet thing is never going to take off Just stuff all our content into a giant fecal burrito Call it an app and let people try to figure out how to use it    Fecal burrito
Ive enjoyed this app for several years But Ive finally decided to remove this app in favor of another news app Over the past year Ive found the headlines too blatantly biased I prefer stories that arent so agendabased       Becoming too biased
Love reading the news on NBC but this app is pretty terrible If its not freezing or crashing takes a while for it to update with the current news Bummer that its not very dependable       Not the best
App doesnt refresh Nothing like opening it up to news from three months ago    Three month old news
30 second ads to watch a 30 second video of mediocre footage Deleting this app    Better apps out there
Its nice that the alerts the app send me are up to date with current events It would be a lot better if when opening the app to read the story if the story was actually there Instead when opening the app I have stories from a few weeks ago How can you say you give up to the minute info about something when Im stuck with old news This has been going on for awhile now Please fix    Would like to see updated stories
A news organization is nothing if it isnt trustworthy and this thing prominently advertises a zodiac horoscope service I emailed them about this two weeks ago and never got a replyPlus its chocked with ads and takes FOREVER to refreshThe worst    Advertises a ZODIAC business
Its bizarre that on the iPad the top half of the screen is taken up with news video that I dont want to watch and the stories of interest scroll beneath that Im forced to read those stories a few lines at a time For a moment it looks like the intrusive and unwanted video hogging the top half can be swiped away but no it comes right back What idiot created this useless app and WHY did NBC sign off on it Now theres a news story    Only half a screen
I want to like use this app but it drives me crazy It takes several minutes to update to the current news stories after opening which means Ive usually already scrolled down selected an interesting headline then that headline disappears It also freezes constantly and necessitates me turning the app offon again I usually just give up go to the website instead If youre going to have an app make sure it works Otherwise focus on developing your mobilefriendly website       Still really buggy
This app needs to have a update also it doesnt have old episodes of Dateline I was extremely disappointed in the fact that I couldnt finish an episode of something I forgot to record    Disappointed
Accidentally tapped upgrade all after carefully not upgrading this and MSNBC for months Was this app made by FOX to steal your viewers I open it It crashes Immediately It went from an app to a completely unusable space hog NBC you are a real business Flybynight games work Why cant NBC Comcast make an app that simply works Im dreading opening the MSNBC app Seriously what is wrong with you Appalling And shame on you Apple Store for not letting people ignore upgrades they dont want    Open Crash
Took six months but now its usable NBC Digital finally listened to the customer instead of the Nightly News marketing department and dumped the half screen promo             FINALLY
Have used the app for six months Now nothing plays Videos just buffer especially Nightly News Very disappointed    Nothing plays
The irritating video screen is finally eliminated now one can scroll through and read the news on a full screen Video seems to work fine Great update to the UI that was long overdue                Problems Finally Fixed
Crashes way to often split screen really not goodway to many ads would rather pay a few dollars and do away with the ads getting the news online should be done with easeDeleting the app until it improves       Needs improvement
A year ago I wrote as a review It wouldnt be quite so bad if you could shrink the top half of the page so you could see the news but with that top half forever covered you cant even see the videos or the news stories that are below Fix this stupid appTheres been no change Do you people at NBCs IT department even read these reviews Whats even more frustrating is that the top half is yesterdays nightly news not even current I really really dislike this app Its gone    Useless with half the screen covered with nightly news
The split screen takes space away from what I want to read about I prefer reading the news briefs as Im in a quiet environment I dont want to listen to my news I dislike this app so much that Ive done something I never do I took the time to rate it Ug Im switching to another network until NBC fixes this    Hate the Split Screen
I would love this update if it actually worked Crashes often stories and videos are from a week ago Takes forever to load when first opened Also ad sound to breaking news notifications    A
After seeing all the negative reviews of this app I had to try it Pretty good and actually better than others I have tried Very responsive good reporting and videos are great             Pretty Good
This update fixed the issue that was created in the last update where half the screen is wasted while you read articles                Finally fixed
