3.0 out of 5 stars The Upper and the Downer June 24, 2011
Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars great app September 13, 2011

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.

2.0 out of 5 stars kill the boot loading April 2, 2012
Verified Purchase
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars What is the deal with app? January 25, 2013
Verified Purchase
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?

1.0 out of 5 stars my very least fav new app December 15, 2012
Verified Purchase
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?

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor menu selection process March 6, 2013
Verified Purchase
App works okay, but does not display in landscape view. Worst problem, however, is that the subject menu fan function works at best sporatically. Some selections either don't respond or go to the wrong subject.
