Ratings and Reviews
Did jhumsoon write “myocarditis?’
I love reading the comments where people are supposed to review the app itself, but ramble on about insignificant and trivia. An NBC News app reviewer, jhumsoon commented how he or she develops inflammation of the heart, every time they see someone on NBC News get stabbed when receiving the vaccine. Jhumsoon, I want to ease your heart inflammation! Pediatric and Adult patients get different size needles. A child is never given an adult sized injection in addition to adults and children have different sized breathing tubes, IVs, and pretty much every other piece of medical equipment, in a controlled environment. Kowledge is power. That’s the good news!
As far as the NBC News app, I love the convenience of getting “breaking news” notifications and don’t have to search through random news outlets when I have a trusted news source right on my iPhone and/or iPad.
Good app but needs fix
I really like this NBC news app. It’s just the right amount of news without the overwhelming and completely depressing, overblown, polarised information of other news apps. I want to be updated with the latest important news; not bludgeoned with gruesome murders, US vs YOU political crap and a TMI style of app reporting that complies a bunch of other nonsense making me feel that human beings are the worst idea ever created! That being said, I have a couple of technical issues; why does it jolt you off the section you are reading ( I assume more stories are being added? ) it is incredibly frustrating to be reading a headline and suddenly your 3 or 4 stories down and have to scroll back to what you were originally looking at. Also, while I love that the content is limited, which makes for a clear straight forward news feed, some of the stories at the bottom seem to never change, so really you end up reading just the upper portion...how about moving those older stories along. More stars when small issues are fixed😉 Thanks for doing the news right!
Fantastic coverage, no paywall
One of the very best news apps. I prefer reading the news to watching it--this app allows both, and does both well. The widget provides constantly updating headlines when other apps, like the New York Times, have totally abandoned their iOS headline widgets. You can read top stories, including excellent coverage of issues of specific importance to LGBTQ and ethnic minority communities, watch video clips or the entire NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt. Richard Engel's coverage of international news, especially Syria and Ukraine, is unparalleled. There are ads, but they're not intrusive at all, unlike so many other news sites and apps that have become unusable, and there's no paywall. In this era of fake news and alternative facts, this app is a bastion of quality journalism.
