Good flow for an info app The UI is pretty smooth. Not taking up too much real estate with side links. Also, black background is very underrated for your eyes. Pop notifications are also "just right". Video could be improved with optimization for Android, but that's not enough to knock a star down. The load times for Businessweek articles are too slow.
Reordering drives me nuts Often times, I'll see an article that interests me, with another interesting article listed below. I'll click on one and read it. Based on having clicked that article, the app will then reorder the article list to try and bring similar articles into view. What happened to the other one that caught my eye? Don't know. I no longer see it. So I'm forced to scroll around looking for it, and can hopefully still remember the exact title. There's no option to keep the list static.
App is good for news and quotes I like the bonus function called "listen" which, if selected on a news article, reads out the article to you. I haven't discovered any bugs at all since using it, but I have a huge watchlist of shares that I built up over time on my desktop Bloomberg account, unfortunately that list isn't available to me when I log in with the app.I wish the desktop and mobile accounts would synch together.
Very informative, timely, and well written I utilize Bloomberg for alot of my news, particularly financial (obviously), certainly breaking news that has any national, international, or financial significance. I may take a pause and consider Bloomberg's political skew, but often find the narrative, and use of fewer adjectives, to provide me what I want - the facts.
Loading Issues I've tried everything that I could do on my part such as: Cleaning out my phone and restarting it. I have 32GB internal and 32GB external. Still not working properly. I found a work around, if I hit the back button on the phone itself while the app is loading, it loads up. Because of that work around, I decided to keep it on my phone.
Love Bloomberg but... The main thing I use the app for is reading the news and watching live TV. The live TV will often just stop if I loose reception and won't pick up again, I have to come out of the live feed and start it again. It will also jump a lot and gets stuck in a loop of about 3 seconds. Neither of these issues I used to get so wondering of the last update has caused these issues. 13th September-they've done an update but it still doesn't work. TV steam just won't work, continuous 2 second loop.
- Fixed several bugs based on feedback
- Added a number of performance improvements
