This app is excellent. All the important headlines in one handy location, video segments from many departments and NBC news programs. In my area, it operates stutter-free. A great way to keep up with what's going on. On the other hand, it requires an additional piece on software, "Air Mail," which does not shut down. Even when the MSNBC app is not operating, Air Mail stays on. Even if you force stop it through the operating system application settings and see that, yes, it turned off, go back into the operating system and you'll see that it's magically still functioning. Why is that a problem? Because it's a huge battery drain. So 5 stars for MSNBC, zero stars for Air Mail, three stars for the review. I uninstalled the whole set.

Decent app, but im extremely sick of all these applications starting at boot and never being closed fully. These dumb auto launch at boot permissions are battery killers. I don't care if it's able to sync in the background, I don't ever want it to open till i open it and when I want it to stop, it better stop.

great app it helped me stay up to date in the hurricane Irene situation now it helps with all news related stories. only thing I don't like is that to use this app you have to download another app called push notifications. I don't care to get the notifications so I have a useless app that I have to have on my phone to use this app. other than that its great.

This used to be one of my favorite apps but lately when I click on the topics/peacock's tail I can only get a few topics to load. For example, when I click on tech/science it will only load health. Anyone else having this problem?

In its previous version; this used to be my favorite news app. However, a recent update is terrible and caused me to uninstall it from my kindle. The earlier version was headline oriented and allowed the reader to quickly scan headlines and decide which ones to read. This updated version is photograph based and takes forever to download because of the larger photographs. It would appear that this app was redesigned for those who would rather look at pictures than actually read the news. It also contains a function to like/dislike each story -- it's idiotic to "rate" the news. Sometimes the news is difficult, e.g., 9/11 or the recent news of Ukrainian citizens being shot at by the police for protesting. These stories are important, but not necessarily ones that someone would "like". So by rating the news like/dislike, will NBC now only run stories that people like? It's idiotic.

You know, I love NBC news, but this thing will NOT work for me. The key to everything is to pick a news topic from the index, which is the peacock's tail from the NBC logo. Each "feather" on the tail has a topic on it and when you touch the topic it is supposed to take you to a full page of news stories. Trouble is, when I touch some of the feathers, they don't open the topic I'm touching! I have tried and tried to open "Health" by touching it's "feather" but have not succeeded, yet. I am deleting this app because of it's non-existent functionality. Is it just me?
