Decent and Reliable
This is a pretty good app. I use it a lot for tracking business news and reports as well as real time stock quotes and pre and post market prices. It gives live stock price movements too. They also usually have fairly good economic news coverage as far as reporting on actual economic report releases as they occur. This is very helpful if you are looking for updates as they happen as may regard a currency trade. When I was younger my father would take me to the local brokerage house to watch the stock quotes scroll by on a thin long device mounted on the wall and talk to the broker to see and find out about real time quotes. They were not remotely available on a small device that I keep in my pocket throughout the day. What a difference.

Charts in new version are lame
The charting changed a few weeks back and it was a significant downgrade. I have used this app extensively for years. The charts were not amazing but very functional on a daily basis. The new charts, at least on my iPad, do not show the the most recent day. For awhile the small chart on the data page for a stock would show the current day but when I go to the full sized chart it is two days back??? Now even the small chart is two days back. Went to App Store and saw an update was available. Did the update. Same thing. Same style chart is used on yahoo and theirs work so come on. Also the standard deviation should use all of the data from the designated period and put a line on the chart, like it did before. A standard deviation is then a straight line and you can see where deviations in the data occur. The standard deviation now shows as a line below the chart and is apparently calculated over some unknown periods as it is not a straight line. Also can no longer select the moving averages I want I.e. 10 day 20 day etc. stuck with your choices and an envelope of unspecified numbers of days. Many other complaints but at least get it to the current day. All in all from very good to lame. If it doesn’t change I will be looking for a new app to use.

App crashes instantly on load
Edited review - The app now (Mar 1/2, 2023) now immediately crashes on load, and because of this, you cannot use the app to contact the developers (settings->contact us). iPhone 14pro is up to date with all iOS patches. Old review below. Not as much information is presented on a screen as the older version. I don't like the new presentation of watch lists. On the old version of the watch list, I could get 10 or more stocks on one screen without scrolling, the new version only 6. I don't like the chart icons being on the watch list, it's not very useful being that small, and it forces each row to be taller (limiting # of rows on a screen) than it needs to be. Also, when selecting a stock and rotating the phone to be landscape and viewing the full chart takes way way too long, it takes so long it times out a lot. And changing the timeline from day, to 1 day, to week, etc, also takes way too long. It is not very useful. There should be a setting to prefer the old chart version because it was infinitely faster. Overall this is not a better version, and I will continue to use the old version.

Poor video streaming experience
I’ve used the CNBC iPad app for about a year in the mornings to stay updated on the markets and watch the news while I get ready or go through morning routines. There is rarely a morning where I don’t spend ~5+ minutes resetting the app or re-launching the video. 1) Anytime there is a commercial, the application loses the broadcast and video stops, resulting in permanent loss of playback until the app is exited and re-launched. 2) Picture in picture is even worse, loses playback once about every 15 or 20 minutes. 3) The app cannot keep track of my TV provider credentials. It will show me logged in, then only play 10min of preview content, then ask me to login again. After a (pull down) refresh on the watch tab, the credentials are back magically but it takes -minutes- to resume playback. -When it works- the app is overall great, but CNBC developers have a long way to go for a consistent experience with video. Happy to run betas or participate in bug reporting program as I have some experience with iOS apps several years back.

The worst app on my iPad for live tv and watching previously aired episodes
The newest update takes this app to a new low. Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse. I usually either watch live tv or episodes of a show that I may have missed. 1. They removed the minimize screen, so if I have to do another task, I will have to start over. 2. If you leave an episode and return, it doesn’t remember where you left off. 3. When trying to find where you left off using the scroll bar, it switches episodes and you have to start over. 4. Every time you move the scroll bar, you get more ads. If fact I had to wait through 14 ads just to get to where I had left off. 5. CC comes on automatically. You can turn it off manually, but it keeps coming back spontaneously over and over again and is relentless. 6. App repeatedly crashes and has to be restarted. It’s a shame that there are so many worthwhile programs on CNBC, but the app developer can’t get it right. Can’t understand where they got 4.7! I looked at the most recent reviews and they are all negative.

Irritating alerts, irrelevant redundant stories
Even with “Major Breaking News” as the only alert it includes topics that are NOT. On a Saturday I have now received 2 alerts about Epstein committing suicide in jail. To me, this is not “Major Breaking News” and certainly not worth 2 alerts on a weekend. They do the same thing to announce tweets by various people as well as other items that are not major. They really need another classification for these that can be disabled. It would be nice to be able to configure an alert if an index moved a certain %. Is there a way to receive an alert on a stock in a watch list? As other reviews have pointed out, the same story will also be duplicated throughout various sections. They really need to filter out the dupes. It would also be great to have the option to disable the images both in the story preview list and the article itself (sorry Getty, but the stock photos of traders either shouting or pouting are just pointless).

Too repetitious
While there’s always an adjustment period as I learn my way around a new version of a favorite app, I’m not sure I’m going to be able to get past the way this one displays the same articles multiple times on the first page. I liked being able to scroll through a long list of articles on a variety of topics in Top News to get an overview of the day’s happenings. Now I need to link to specific pages to see more than 4-6 articles from a broad area of interest. And of those few, a couple are always repeats from a previous section. My other gripes: the horizontal scrolling at the top of the page for market listings is slower; there’s no way to close the window after you look at details for a stock listing from a watchlist. All that said, I’m hoping CNBC is listening and will improve the usability of this now very attractive app. Really, usability should come first.

Charts Issues
Issue #1: With the latest chart update it does not show the last 5 days in portrait (vertical) mode, instead it shows the last 32 hours of price data in portrait mode. This is not an issue when you expand the chart to view in landscape mode. The 32 hours of price data includes premarket, normal, and after hours data. Issue #2: The latest update also removed the feature that allowed users to tap and lock onto the price at a specific time. This feature was replaced with crosshairs that do not lock to the price. It would be nice if the app gave users the choice to toggle between the crosshairs mode and the old mode (tap and lock). In the meantime, I plan to use the Apple stock app because it still has the “tap and lock” feature. The Apple stock app also has a very cool feature that allows you to tap at a specific time with your left thumb, tap a second time with your right thumb, and then it shows the percentage increase.

Pressure
When interviewing people involved with Bitcoin, the CNBC interviewer acts surly towards the people involved with Bitcoin. How Bitcoin is going to work, I do not know, but the CNBC staff have to do a series explaining BlockChain and how CNBC interviewers(who appear somewhat arrogant at times) arrived at their position. I am trying to read everything I can about Blockchain and Bitcoin, and It looks to me that a lot of individuals are very arrogant in their views about these new investments, yet, it is extremely difficult understand who the winners and losers are. If someone would explain, 1. how the Blockchain network is going to work, and 2. how efficient and safe can Blockchain be in the future. My credit card has a new sensor in it, and all I have to do is tap a card reader and the store will accept the payment. Is this a result of Bitcoin? How has Bitcoin changed the market, and who will benefit from Bitcoin?

No Background Audio Feature for iOS
The most annoying aspect of the CNBC iOS app Is that it does not provide for background audio, live streaming or otherwise, when navigating away from the CNBC app. I find this extremely frustrating bc I would like to listen to CNBC while doing other tasks. By not addressing user requests for this feature, it appears that CNBC doesn’t really care about it’s user experience. CNBC needs to get some better software app developers and management. The app is quirky, clumsy and buggy in my opinion bc navigation does not work properly, volume levels are inconsistent and do not provide a loud enough range, and videos frequently fail to load and do not play consecutively in full screen mode. On a positive note, I love the CNBC content and breaking news alerts. While many users criticize CNBC as having a liberal bias and for its up to the minute reports on Trump and geopolitical news, I disagree. Such news is indeed relevant and correlated to almost instantaneous market changes.

It’s not Specific to CNBC
I find that a constant stream of news and speculation leads to wild days and markets. Because of too much internet and too much information which may be exacerbated it causes violent swings. Fifteen years ago most investors depended on News before markets, possibly futures. It’s apparent now that these “speculative analysts” have no idea why the Semi-Conductor sector has been like a literal roller coaster since January. If Bernie Sanders says something that threatens a speculation at 3:50 PM there’s a sudden sell off. It’s this constant stream and lots of independent investors across the spectrum of incomes that are decent but don’t meet the $300,000 minimum for a brokerage house, and this stream of information some rarely relevant in terms of a stocks health long term, that reeks havoc and turmoil. Combined with a disproportionately small number of people with Vasts sum of money that invest “Vegas Style” with for whatever the reason is legal Options Trading. These individuals are upset with Social Media when it comes to a trend in pouring money into Game Stop…not only inflating the stock of GameStop but all those call ins… As said it’s more the times and culture than CNBC…but the analysis is becoming more speculation and they’re becoming comparable to Tennis commentators on the emotional state of players based on the momentum of the match… Then you throw Pro in which 80% is on live TV…

So I cut the cord...
So I cut the cord.... and what a horrible experience it has been. I wasn’t watching anything but CNBC mostly anyway so why not, right? Well, app doesn’t recognize I have a pro subscription even though it says I’m logged in when looking at settings. Video streaming is touch and go. Audio goes in and out. App constantly needs to be restarted because of video freezing or audio not playing. Was sending horrible popping noises through my brand new iPad Pro bought last week. Audio was also messing with my Bluetooth speakers, sending the same popping noise through speakers that weren’t even showing connected to my iPad. $300 a year for a broken app? I’m trying to be calm but you guys are messing with my time and money. It’s infuriating. Is it too much to ask for a stable experience?

Stopped working after CNBC required account setup
Have enjoyed it in the past. I recently received a message that I had to set up an account in order to save my watchlist. I set up an account and now it won’t let me login, it won’t let me set up an account and it won’t let me change my password. So I have no access to my watchlist. Just prior to this the app had stopped working correctly in that when you chose a particular stock it would give you the details for a different company. I know they want you to pay for a pro account so maybe they are trying to make it difficult for everyone else?? They already have much of their content only available to paying customers. Sad to lose this app.

Newest version broke what didn’t need fixing
This latest app version is a case of changing for the sake of change. The older version was near perfect. This one is very hard to navigate and use. - This app version makes content so large it doesn’t fit the phone’s screen. - It lumps watchlist percentage and dollar changes together (killing the separate columns)... which is visually confusing. - It attempts to group content into categories, which are now all over the map, and redundant. - The market tab was removed from the bottom, which used to be a cool feature, enabling the ability to pull it up or hide it on call. The new app fixes it to the top of the screen in huge font, taking up a third of the screen, with no way to hide it. And it sorts the data differently depending on time of day. Trying to make it intuitive backfires here because you can’t depend on where to find it. - The watchlist has a bug that resorts the extended hour pricing randomly. - The old app was great because it simply did what it was supposed to, which is critical when trading is time sensitive. This one wastes valuable seconds as you hunt did info that used to be at your fingertips.

Upgrade was a real downgrade
App used to be much better. Latest version lost the ability to have watch list or news scroll next to live broadcast. So now it’s either full screen or partial screen with other broadcast options on the side. Why could it possibly be superior to see fixed options of US, Pro US, Pro EU, Pro Asia over real time quotes of my watch list or the news?!?!? Anyone who is a pro subscriber knows their options. The rest of us, basic cable subs, have a static option of US live. So basically the screen went from lots of info to just broadcast. Major downgrade. The one actual upgrade was making audio only available, so the app can be minimized. I’m sure others are happy, but since I have Sirius that’s of no value to me. Wish I could go back to the old version. Was so much better!!!!

Improved But Still Needs Work
May have found a bug in latest 5.0.4 update. Swiping along the top of the screen where the indices (US, EU, Asia, etc) and other data (Oil and Metal prices) are displayed is acting strange. If I swipe left or right very (and I mean very) slowly, it will cycle through each one in order (US to EU to Oil to Gold to Bonds to FX to Pre-Market to Asia) But if I swipe at normal speed, mainly to the right, it will always skip over displaying one of the data screens. For example, if I’m looking at Asia market data and swipe to the right at normal speed, instead of going to prior screen data which should be Pre-Market data, it will jump to FX data. And if I swipe right again, it will skip Bonds data and go to Gold data. If I swipe right again, it goes from Gold to EU data, skipping over the Oil data. I have to swipe left to get to the correct data that should have been displayed. And I wish the “Condensed News” view option applied to all the individual news sections and not just to the main page/screen. For example, if I’m in the “Top News” or “Trending Now” section, the pictures are still needlessly too big vs the text displayed underneath requiring unnecessary scrolling. It would be great if the pictures could be made smaller using “Condensed News” option.

Problems on the new app design
Need a fix to use the app ipad pro because after the download it is missing the edit button for deleting a stock from a watchlist. It is there on my Iphone 8, but the Ipad pro it is not on the upper left corner as usual. Now x to close certain pages is missing on the Ipad, tho you can tap the top left corner and it seems to work most times. The same goes for videos if you stop before the end, no x appears to close them. Positive on the new font, it makes reading easier and clearer to the eyes. Lastly news for individual stock normally contain news that has little or nothing to do with the stock, just used to fill the news area. In addition on watch list there is no edit for individual stocks to be deleted off the list...bad design. Only have a link to add to the watch list, no delete but you can hit add cancel and get to the delete list, very very odd. Come on fix the x off buttons on ALL pages, add the delete buttons and get it right! 2/4 now if you look at one stock’s news, you get news from unrelated stocks, or any other news that is posted instead of the company that you choose, I don’t know why.

Graphical charting is horrible
*Update I’m going to delete this app before the end of the year if it continues to not improve. I used to use it constantly like three years ago. The graphical charting is ugly and unusable. The app absolutely needs a top to bottom overhaul or it’s gone from my phone. I’ve gotten to where I mostly use the Apple stock app and the Robinhood app which both have wonderful graphical charting, and they both show after hours prices now. RobinHood even shows you the price 24 hours a day! *Original Review This app used to be great about three years ago, and then they released an update that totally broke graphical charting. It has been horrible ever since. The app is wildly overdue for a complete overhaul. I will be giving it one star until they put some effort into it. The only thing it is useful for is simultaneously getting after hours quotes for multiple symbols in a list view. Please don’t change that part!

Superb and Comprehensive Reporting
By far, the most thorough and comprehensive reporting and expert analysis for the arm-chair investor. Those of us who prefer to listen, study and take care of our own investing instead of allowing algorithms to “push a button” to do our investing for us by behemoth investment firms. The “DIY investor” relies more and more on accurate and comprehensive information to weigh investment decisions. CNBC offers insightful communication of events and challenges impacting the Markets including leading indicators, geopolitical landscape, labor markets and other factors. Very much like each individual analysis of equities breaks down p/e, gross, net profits (or losses), quarterly earnings reports, and current news attached, if applicable. Worth the subscription!

New App is way too buggy
I’ve never ever left an app review but I’m compelled to drop one for the very first time. Although the PIP feature is awesome, I can’t however go a minute without a commercial suddenly dropping in the midst of a live broadcast. Furthermore I have to basically exit the app or click on Pro to come back the regular broadcast. Even after multiple deletions and downloads, this is becoming a vicious circle that’s not getting any better and is infuriating. I’ve seen a couple of prior reviews having mentioned the same issue and I can’t even imagine the number of folks who haven’t taken a moment to drop a report/complaint. This app is definitely worth more than my one start rating - when working properly - but I can’t believe it ever got green lighted for use as buggy as it is. I mean what was that rush!? I have plenty of memory left so that isn’t the problem notwithstanding the fact that the prior version was working without a glitch. Please fix ASAP!

Live tv pro account
I don’t like that I am paying a very high sum for having CNBC pro and I can’t watch CNBC live tv after the market closes. Because I don’t have a cable tv network provider and I’m paying for CNBC pro mostly to watch CNBC live but I can’t see it after the market closes and I think that is really unfair and should be fixed. And another thing that is really upsetting is that when you are on the Apple TV app and watch an individual video the volume is very low and you have to turn it up to almost a hundred percent to hear it properly. And also about the commercial breaks, you should really put commercial breaks because I don’t like that my tv goes all quiet when the commercial break hits. Please change this things I really love your app!

Decent App, but some Reporting Bias
I’ve been using this app for over a year and am happy with it over all - with a few caveats. Number one is that I agree with other reviewers that CNBC writers stray a little too frequently from reporting insightful, fact based business news, and veer off into left leaning, anti-Republican slant. I don't mind it too too much since I can read polluted news and separate key information from the blather. But still... Actually, I find the broadcast channel to be more balanced and helpful than the articles in this app. The other thing I would like to see is a tweak to the portfolio tracker. Right now it only tracks prices of stocks in your portfolio. It would be MUCH more useful if it also allowed user to input #shares owned, and purchase price. Then it would be a true portfolio tracker.

Love watching tv, but has bugs
I love to use this app to watch live tv while I’m at work or doing chores around the house. But there are bugs. Even though my direct tv password is stored in my iPhone XS and I have used the app daily, it starts in preview mode and a stops my viewing after 15 minutes. Usually when I click sign in, it works again. Other changes that would be nice: i want to be able to keep listening to the app while I got look something up on my phone, text someone, etc. I often do chores outside and set the phone down while listening to the tv on the app; when it goes to commercial, frequently it just stops the video and my phone locks. I have to clean up enough to touch my phone and unlock the screen and restart it playing.

All of a sudden , it is very slow
For about 2 months , opening my CNBC app has been very slow . It is also very slow when trying to read stories or switching from one category to another at the home page . Have not had this problem with other apps like Charles Schwab and TD Waterhouse . Another point , sometimes I can not find MelissaLee’s program’s Last Trade of the Day ! In addition , John Harwood is the most unprofessional reporter that I have ever seen in over 50 years of watching TV News. He is unfair , totally biased and has blamed President Trump for almost everything that has happened to the USA since 2015 ! I watched the Presidential Election on CNBC from the beginning . To see his Face was priceless . 24 hours earlier he had emphatically stated that there was no way Trump could win ! I could go on and on about how unprofessional he is and how biased he is but there is no need . I am sure Walter Cronkite , or Huntley and Brinkley would have considered him a “ Minor League “ reporter ! I try to go to the bathroom whenever he is on CNBC . Why does Joe let him on the Show from 6:00-9:00 , Harwood never says anything positive ?

Mostly a fairly good app
I’ve been using the CNBC app for many years now and it’s my go to for checking out the current price action on equities, bonds, currencies, etc. Has a streamlined look, easy to read and easy to use. Charts are decent, if a bit limited, but one can’t complain because the app is free. The app has throttled down their offerings over the years. There used to be a much more robust archive of videos and news articles. Recently they’ve restricted it even further, so that many articles are hidden behind a paywall. I’m ok with this, but they should indicated it as a ‘subscriber only’ article so that those of us who chose not to subscribe don’t waste time clicking dead-end links. Some of the articles are clearly marked with the ‘PRO’ label, but many are not.

Love CNBC, but
I thoroughly enjoy and respect CNBC - the Network and the app - for my business news. I think the app is terrific and would have given it 5 Stars if it weren't for the Pro version. I understand the reasons why it exists, but I refuse to pay for news and interviews. Now if Pro had special context - shows, personalities and the like - I might purchase it, but from the headline feeds - it's nothing more than much of the same at a price. If the plan is to migrate shows and more content that are currently on CNBC to pro, I will go elsewhere. We leaned in physics that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

Tad Better Than Yahoo Finance
This CNBC app is just a tad better than Yahoo Finance. It basically mimics the same news as Yahoo Finance. They let you read the company profile and P/E ratio, etc. That Yahoo Finance does not offer anymore. But as far as stock analysts ratings on stocks anymore. No one does that now days. Talk about income inequality. A self directed stock picker like myself. It makes it very difficult to pick stocks with little to no information to go on. Even E*TRADE has very limited (microscopic) research. By the way stock analysts opinion isn’t what it is cracked up to be. I picked a 5 Star stock based on all research that you could get a couple of years ago. I bought Gilead Sciences at $113 and it almost started immediately tanking. They had a low P/E ratio, lots of cash. Brought in a hot shot Dr. who was extremely intelligent in cancer research. World renowned. The stock continued to tank. I cut my losses and got out at $68.

Excellent News Content but poor Navigation
I don't know how I didn't stumble across this app in the past when it has the best news source and I really like reading my daily Business and Politics news from CNBC. The editors did a fine job. However a lot needs to be done for navigation and accessibility on the app. For example moving from one news story to another I cannot swipe and I have to go to the main home page and then pick my next story. As for accessibility - why are the text font so small? No matter how big I make the font on my phone the font of news stories is too small. Can you maybe introduce a small feature where users can tap in to increase/decrease the font perhaps? This would greatly help those who are vision impaired. I would have given it 5 stars otherwise.

Guess parent rules household
I’ve worked in the financial services industry for 15years. I’m Series 7, 63, 65, Insurance licensed, CRPC and AIF. During my career I’ve watched CNBC on cable and app to keep up to date on market information, world economics, as well as monetary and fiscal policy in order to inform clients of the current environment. Im done with CNBC!! Ive deleted the what used to be useful app for market and economic information. They’ve clearly caved to the parent NBC evidenced by the constant “Alerts” on Trump Russia news or any other “negative” Trump related news they choose to promote. I thought we subscribed to this app and channel for financial news! Where’s the positive economic news associated with this administrations policies?? Now let’s be clear. If you occasionally admonished the political party you secretly support, I’d at least feel you were trying to keep whatever journalistic integrity you may have left. Currently seeking a financial app with a lot less political bias.

Not as good as they used to be !
The obvious lean to the left of this broadcast has become more and more obvious, and I Would rather not know at all who somebody’s favorite president or politician is because then I don’t have to listen to criticisms that I don’t agree with or ones that I do agree with. CNBC was my most watched network and it has become my least watched network for that very reason. Guest on the programs are frequently rudely interrupted for not late breaking news but just information about something somebody thought was important but in the scheme of things not very important at all. CNBC is Not as bad as CNN but it is certainly headed that direction and much worse about it is it’s just a business network and is trying to be everybody’s news . You try too to do too Much and Succeed too little !

Tell Chris Matthews to stop interrupting guest. Katy needs to stop yelling it hurts a persons ears and causes anxiety. Day crew not near as professional as the eve/ night crews As of late other then the night broadcasters and Nicole Wallace your team is a sell out. Your reporting team does not back their word changing their position to get ratings, doubtful this is working!! I am beginning to see MSNBC as a worst provider of news them FOX, we know this is a Trump broadcast however with the exception of RMS and Deadline you are trash reporting. For goodness sake get rid of Todd he is horrible, does not ask pertinent questions. Never disputes the obvious lies. You had my undying support, no longer America has enough sell out from Trump and Company we do not need your lies.

Bob in Paso Robles
I have been a avid fan of virtually all of the market related programs on CNBC since before Cisco was $80+/shr. However, there are some comments that bother me: when regular hosts suggest that a stock movement occurred due to individual investors. Since >75% of daily share volume is often said to be due to “algorithmic” trading activity, individual investors cannot move a stock like AMZN or TSLA. The importance of Computerized trading is further supported when the price of a stock bounces off of a low several times within a quarter. Individual investors could not possibly be responsible for the “bounces” that are discussed on Fast Money. So, how about sharing some of the equations and statistical approaches? I just laugh when chartists suggest that a bounce was due to individual investor activity.

Used to be Amazing. Now Only Lag and Glitches
I have been a loyal user of this app for years. Love watching Mad Money after work or listening on the way home in the car. However recently, the streaming does nothing but crash. Every 30 seconds to 1 min the video stops completely and returns to the main screen. Considering I pay hundreds for the Pro version this is beyond aggravating. I even tried to log into my cable provider to watch the basic stream and the app freezes and goes blank the instant I click Verizon. This all happens even when hooked up to the fastest WiFi that is available to the public. Seriously considering deleting this for good and canceling my annual pro subscription. Very disappointed as this used to be my most frequented app.

Shilling for dollars
This used to be my go to app for business and stock news. Over the past two years, most of the really relevant and useful stories now rewire a subscription. I don’t think the PRO is worth $30/mo. I tried it for two months, enjoyed it but $360/year is not in my fixed income senior budget. And the same goes for Jim Cramer’s CLUB offering. I know he donates to charity, but some of us prefer to choose our own charities and since he always says he wants to help the “average investor” why do we need to pay $300/year for his articles? I know nearly everything is going to subscription model, but it’s getting just too pricey. I may delete the app as it is only good for a quick look at my stock watch list. And I can get that elsewhere. Time to shop around.

Your spin
It’s very easy to identify that your site leans towards the left. From the headlines on each article to the content within the article there is a certain spin being presented to the reader. It’s become so common today with our news organizations that us conservatives just “take-it” for what it is. As this current administration continues their control of the government, it’ll be very interesting to see how you choose to report the news when gas prices and our over cost of living continues to spike up. Us average “Joe’s” are already seeing the spike in such cost on our weekly budgets. Will your financial news organization, have the guts to report why this spike is happening to the average consumer? I’m guessing not. Have a good day!

Used to be a good app
Well, a while back they changed the charts function in the CNBC app. I would say that if they were seeking to get the award for “Worst Stock Chart Function on the Internet”, they may very well take first place in that category. Congratulations, CNBC for doing huge damage to your app by incorporating just about the worst charts out there! Reduced from 5 stars to 1 star for that crucial reason alone. Don't bother to give your useless canned reply to this review CNBC, because it is laughable. Update (Jan 26, 2022): Sadly, CNBC has done absolutely nothing to replace their current stock charts with charts that actually work. Why? Who knows? As you can see, they only give a useless canned response to any of the reviews complaining about their useless charts, while they simultaneously do absolutely nothing to fix this glaring problem. It is baffling to say the least.

Charts are useless
Maybe it was the last update, but the charts are hard to use. You either need a basic charts for summary and make it simple (like your old charts) or you need to have many great features like other apps. You cannot go middle ground cause you don’t nearly have enough features to start implementing a couple things in charts. I use cnbc for many things. Not charts. But the basic one was good to see various price movements. But i can’t even do that now. App is more buggy and slow I noticed that loading pages takes much longer than before. This is a regular occurrence which makes me think the quality is going down hill. Furthermore, when selecting a stick to look into, the app crashes. Happens roughly 10% of the time.

Watchlist is the best
As a simple, straightforward tracking tool, the CNBC app gets the job done. I use it to track my stocks throughout the day, and in the pre-markets and after hours. I find it better than the Fidelity app for that. If it went away tomorrow, I would be lost at sea. Other than that, their anchors, TV coverage and online content have never done a thing to help me in the market. If you follow their overblown analysis, driven by a need to keep viewers on the edge of their seat (that’s me!) and get clicks, you will lose money (that’s me, too!). And while my kid loves Cramer (House of Pain :-), he proves a broken clock can be wrong more than twice a day. *click*

Fix Sorting Feature (Has been addressed, see below)
Been weeks and the sorting feature for stock gain percentage in the app is still not fixed. Annoying to not be able to quickly identify stock runners. CNBC already acknowledged the issue but hasn’t released the fix for it. Why? Watchlists also do not organize properly. Constantly have to move them around manually and they still don’t save position properly. This app used to be great, now it seems they don’t care. Update: The latest update that got pushed out seems to have corrected the sorting issues with the app. Some ideas though that could make this app a 5 star would be if the following: - Allow stock pricing to show sub penny levels 0.00xxx - Link current news articles with the stock tickers so you can get live news directly through the app. Currently I have to switch between multiple apps to get up to date information on stocks. Overall CNBC app is a great tool and the IT support team is diligent in addressing the issues to make it better.

Great App for Market News and Education
Love this app for all the good alerts, powerful insights, and customizations. The only issues I have with this app, is that I can’t get for CNBC shows on demand, I still need a TV subscription. For the cost of this subscription, I should be getting all the CNBC network shows on demand. The last issue I have is a technical one; this app has a lot of trouble managing its audio stream as you flip between different apps. The audio frequently drops out, and the only way to fix it is restarting the app or raising your volume to 100%. This bug has been persistent for quite some time now. It doesn’t seem to be an issue if you’re streaming through Bluetooth.

Type size change
Watchlist no longer in a nice easy to read format since they changed how text size is determined. Tried change in settings where they said to fix it but that then made a big mess out of my other apps & now trying to get settings back to my original ones. Very unhappy here. Guess I need to find a new stock tracking app. Update-they now have a way to opt out of this feature...did that and all is now good again with this app. One other feature that would be nice....have market close & extended show in columns next to each other instead of 2 separate screens.

Sorting is a mess and poor news
The app is laid out well and easy to use. Sorting of the %change on my watch list is faulty. At the moment, it doesn’t work at all. Previously you would have to click on the sort header for the watch list and then scroll down to get it to register. I thought this would be fixed immediately but it’s been months and now doesn’t sort at all. The news feed is seriously lacking. Stocks can go up or down by 25% and the app has no news articles as to what’s happening. I have to flip over to yahoo finance and they’ll always have multiple articles as to what’s going on. But, that app isn’t as user friendly IMO. so+ 1 for CNBC there.

EDIT: "A move backwards" to improved
UPDATE 2017: The app has been improved since my 2014 review. I'm using it more and finding it is better in all ways. Still room for improvement, but deserving of being on my iPhone for daily use. Thx for updating. --- PREVIOUS comment --- Disappointed with the 2014 updates and "in your face" ads; I no longer check the app on my phone or tablet as often. It is nice to have video available, but would rate have it secondary in a menu area a and prefer the "quiet" and less data intensive content when accessing wireless. CNBC should revisit what there viewers use and prefer.

Advertisements need to be adjustable
I've been using this app for over a decade and it's always been very good compared to everything else that's available. Now I'm seeing advertisements for items that I do not want to see or need to see but there is no way to provide that feedback. They need to correct this. Update August 1, 2020 Now I've noticed that the watchlist was changing position on the screen every few seconds. They really do change this app for the sake of change. It's irritating that the screen moves when I'm trying to read it. It would be better if this "feature" was able to be disabled. Update June 6, 2024 I stopped installing updates. Every update makes this software worse and less useful. After reading the reviews I’m glad that I made the decision to stop updating.

Recommend a bottom pop up menu
iOS mobile app When using search from Watchlist or Markets and then search inside of a search you can nest deeply into search after search. Then there is no easy way to get back to the Home Screen or bottom menu selections. Recommended: the bottom menu that displays on every screen, or at least is accessible as a pop up, regardless of how deep into searches you are so you have the ability to simply select News Markets Watchlist to take your back home. The website version of this app does exactly that. I find myself using the website version rather than the app as it has better workflow in some ways.

Paying for info on my stocks !!!
I don’t like and won’t pay for any info on stocks !!!! The way you use to have it was a pleasure going on CNBC , when you could get all your stock info for free . Like everything else , now CNBC is making $$$ or letting others make $$$ on us investors by wanting us to log in and pay for stock info . All that has done is LOWER CNBC ‘s standards and ratting by not giving us the info we want on our stocks !!!! I’ll start getting my info from other sites !!! And stop using CNBC !! If you don’t stop not letting us get our stock info free of fees !!!!!!

Need more balance
Many of your CNBC staff, reports, and contributors to the shows seem to be left wingers. Where’s the balance! I thought this was a financial show not a dump on Trump show. I loved seeing your reporters who were all against Trump have to admit he had won. Then support all the crap the Dems did to Trump over the last few yrs. Maybe get some contributors who have other opinions that your New Yorker staff. I feel the coverage on the virus has been over blown do to the New Yorkers on your staff who think the world is coming to an end. Get some balance CNBC!! Otherwise rename your show the CNN financial show of the East coast. Sincerely Steve Meyer Cal

So so UI/UX & incorrect listing
Once there’s a new UI. It looks like a UI change for the sake of change. Hardly any useful functional improvement. Once again, the approach appears to be form over function. That’s ok for a game or entertainment app, but not for a serious business/financial app. The forex quotes section is poor. They don’t include quotes for all major currency cross pairs yet include a whole bunch on non majors. Over a year ago, I noticed a listing for the pair JPY/EUR. Every forex broker I’ve ever seen lists this pair as EUR/JPY. So what’s the point of listing it incorrectly? I got a call from a CNBC customer service rep who tried to tell me that it didn’t matter because the non standard listing represented the same pair. It counts as one of the most ignorant responses I’ve heard from any customer service. Sad that CNBC chooses to employ such ignorant people who represent CNBC. The bias in the news stories has become very tiresome. I routinely see stories critical of President Trump, the GOP and practically anything conservative. Opinions are thinly disguised as “stories”. True journalistic integrity requires stating ALL aspects of a given situation as opposed to avoiding the ones that aren’t favorable to the writer’s political bias.

Review
I enjoy the app and use it daily. I enjoy the live feed and all the stock information, news and financial shows. When I’m home, I have CNBC on (my TV) all day and I record my favorite shows when I’m unable to view them. I love the individual clips highlighting the subject matter. When out of town, I watch my favorite missed shows on my iPad. I love having the up-to-the-minute CNBC financial news at all times. Please add Fast Money Halftime Report on your recorded shows! It’s one of my favorite shows. I record at home but I’m a retired snow bird and miss watching this shows when I travel.

Recent changes for the worse
Update 17 feb 2023. The radio feed has begun to work great! So adding a star to the rating. $30 per month is still a very very high price point. Looks like the app is going through an overhaul and a number of things are broken. Often the video clips do not work. Only a few stories openly available. Everything seems to be going the private way I.e., subscribe the steeply priced subscription. The radio goes silent for the time. That, combined with existing/legacy bugs, you just never know if it will play after the “silence” period. These are simple problems to solve but the teams doesn’t seem to see this as priority.
