5.0 out of 5 stars Concise and Easy To Use News App.... July 28, 2012
Verified Purchase
I have been using this app for a few months now and find it very useful and easy to navigate. A few months ago I found myself traveling more often and getting my news on the go became more of a hassle. With this app I'm not having to open the web browser and try to find the video I'm looking for, all videos are right there and a tap from playing. Love that it plays full broadcasts and not abridged versions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Catch the NBC News on your own schedule. May 2, 2012

I like this app because you can watch the whole NBC Nightly News broadcast. But it also has the stories stored as separate videos arranged by category if you're looking for a specific item. You can even view previous broadcasts if you missed a day. This app is well organized with a clean interface. Looks great on my Kindle Fire.

5.0 out of 5 stars NBC News via Kindle April 22, 2012
This is great. I am pretty busy and don't always have time to watch the evening news. I do find the commercials annoying. Wish there was some way to halt them...do not appreciate the interruption.

If you're a news junkie and one who wants to stay informed of the issues on all sides of the news and political spectrums, there are some good choices here for those who own a Kindle Fire. This and other Android devices are ideal for an information app like this, especially if you like your news on the go.

NBC Nightly News is a tight, small app. It takes up only 2.6MB on this device, and will install in less than 30 seconds. The overall layout is very simple and easy to navigate. Once installed, you can easily browse the NBC Nightly News story headlines and watch the most recent full broadcast in its entirety. The interface is easy to follow, making it simple to delve into the headlines and top stories on from the NBCNews site.

One added benefit it that you can read The Daily Nightly blog by Brian Williams if you like, as it's there. This app is produced by MSNBC Interactive News, and if you want the latest in breaking stories as they appear in real-time then they also offer their Breaking News app as a freebie here.

The NBC Nightly News app is quite good on the Kindle Fire and other Android devices. Be aware that there will be the inevitable advertisements, but that's what makes it a free app here. I can live with that, as its timely news content makes it worthwhile

2.0 out of 5 stars Content ok, but app freezes a lot. November 27, 2012
Verified Purchase
Downloaded to Kindle Fire HD 8.9 and app is freezing and force closing every time I use it. No issues with the content, just the software itself.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too Many Advertisements December 9, 2012
By TM
Verified Purchase
I have the CBS News app. which has no commercials (advertisements).
With the NBC app. you do not have the option to skip the ads,which is time consuming.
If you have the time then it is informative.

Good app, but my beef is with the compression quality of the full nightly episodes. The audio sounds like an echo chamber... very, very low quality. The video could be better. Read more

This app would be nice if I didn't have to watch the same 30 second GE ad before every story. I did try to watch the whole newscast, but the screen went dark with audio only. Read more
