Unusable Quite possibly the most unstable app I have ever tried to use. Why do I have to get kicked out of an article I'm reading the second Bloomberg adds new content to the site? I keep updating this app hoping the problems get resolved but they never do. Today I tried to watch a video but after sitting through yet another annoying 15 second ad, I got kicked out. 15 seconds of nonsense and no content. Great job BLOOMBERG! Today, the app says "no news stories available". Maybe Bloomberg is out of business?!?
Why would you release an update that requires access to local media storage such as my photos? When you build an Android application it has its own storage it can use and does not require explicit access to the entire device storage. You app tells the user that it needs full storage access "so the Bloomberg app can work with its configuration files." Which is a blatant LIE! Either you are coding this app poorly or you are doing something shady. Either way, this update means I am removing the app because it refuses to run unless I give it full storage access.
Works but lots of annoyances Frequent issues with streaming. Seems to download stuff almost daily and will stop playing abruptly. Sometimes have to kill and restart the app. Content is awesome though!
Better User Experience Needed Please do not automatically play videos or audios of any format. It is a good idea to load them up first so it is on demand. But it is bad user experience to be interrupted and disturbed by video or audio that users do not play voluntarily. Decent app/website otherwise.
Crashes upon opening The last couple of versions has not worked with my Samsung S6 Android 6.0.1, it would crash and the message "unfortunately Bloomberg has stopped" would appear. Please fix it soon
Was good Before the update the app was perfect. Now that my phone runs the latest OS, the app crashes when trying to launch. Very frustrating. EDIT: still crashes when trying to open, down to 1* EDIT2: STILL CRASHES 100% of the time
