NBC app
I’ve had this application for quite awhile now and enjoy receiving each and every notification!! I stay current with the news mainly because of this app!! I get notifications for weather, breaking news, amber alerts basically everything. I did however give it 4 stars instead of five because I have on many occasions written to them concerning accidents that have JUST took place I’ve written about a fire and even when TD bank had just been robbed and no one has EVER REPLIED they could’ve gotten breaking stories but chose to ignore!! Other than that I enjoy this app!!!

Just… why?
You would think that when your done reading a story the ones at the bottom would be other news updates on other stories or what you have missed. Well, I guess they are stories I could have missed, because I’m constantly reading stories that can date back two years. You might not think that’s a big deal if your just reading by yourself and you came across it, but when you read about a deadly traffic crash that shut down the part of the highway that your family drives through and you call them to avoid the area, and they don’t know what I’m talking about because the story was from last year. Or when I’m prepping my vehicle and supplies because there’s an incoming snowstorm “tomorrow morning” that can drop as much as 14”, and when I’m all bundled up in the dark ready to walk out the door there’s not a flake on site nor has anything dropped because the weather report was from 18 months ago. I guess the morale of the story is don’t be curious it will just waste your time

Great App
I don’t allow many apps to send me notifications, however; this app I love getting notifications. I am and extremely busy person and I do not have enough time to try and find time to watch the news. This app sends me little summaries when stories are occurring locally, nationally and world wide as they are unfolding. I can choose to learn more or ignore it depending on my level of interest. The weather is by far my favorite part of this app. NBCs Bob Maxon is my morning go to guy while I’m getting ready for work and what to wear according to the forecast and in comparison NBC is always the most accurate. I also get weather alert notifications. Example: “lighting strikes reported .02 miles of your current location” is an alert I received today among many others leading up to and during a severe storm we were having. Over all I’m very satisfied and would highly recommend it!

Great & Accurate
This is a well done app that delivers what you want easily & without having to jump thru hoops to find what you need. It's become my go-to app for local weather & news updates. I keep the opening screen on Weather & added it to my widgets so I can check without opening the app if in a hurry. By far I've found their local weather forecast more accurate than other stations & weather apps, at least for my area of CT. Like any other app, there are a few things that can improve, but none are bothersome or take away from the app's value. This is one app I can depend on! Nice work developers!

New app better but...
I only use the app for weather. The new app is much better than the old one, works on iPads as well as iPhones, and contains almost all the information that you could possibly want. It’s messy but with a bit of work the information is there (why would you ever want an ugly radar sweep showing up?). BIG MISS for me: you have a limited number of sites you can save and it doesn’t allow Canadian sites to be added. What’s up with that?!!! For those of us with strong Canadian ties and property it is essential to add towns from north of the border. Sadly I go back to the Fox 61 app where I can track all I want and place the tracking dots exactly where I want them.

Well curated notifications & great weather forecasts.
This is my primary source for CT “headline” news. They strike a good balance in their notifications. Frequent enough to keep me informed, but not enough to annoy me. All alerts are CT related, even the National and international news items are highly pertinent. The app itself has more news than I can keep up with, but is organized well enough that I can easily find what I want or need. PLUS! They have the most accurate CT weather forecast. They take great pride in that accomplishment and have the awards to prove it.

Live tv stopped working
Sine I updated my phone to iOS 13 I can’t get live tv. Also around the same time my Apple TV stopped being able to watch the app live. Please help fix this. I loved watching live tv and getting the notifications. Feel lost without being able to watch the news in the morning in my bedroom. Help please

Grateful app user
I don’t have cable so I use the NBC APP to watch live and video recorded news as well as my weather! I am always very grateful for any live emergency news and am alerted right away, something you don’t get when you don’t have the app! I also have the option of either reading or watching the news from my phone at anytime of day or night! Thank you NBC for always keeping me up to date on news and weather as well as any emergency situations in my state and area.

Perfect app to start the day
This app is exactly what I need. I open it up and see the weather first. It is formatted perfectly so that I can see everything I want to know about the day or week quickly and easily. In fact, I like it more than any other weather I app I currently use. After the weather I simply tap the top right corner and I’m watching the live news. If that wasn’t good enough, there’s a tv schedule for the news channel so I can see where I am in the lineup.

Trustworthy source
One of the few apps I allow to send me notifications. They don’t overwhelm but keep you informed. Great source of local news, but in this time when all 24 hour news channels are covering only 2 topics, Trump and COVID, I’ve relied on NBC CT to keep me updated with what else is going on in CT, the nation and even internationally. And I love the weather updates when storms are coming and the power outage and cleanup updates afterwards. Totally recommend

Quick Reporting on Everything Connecticut!
If you need to know what’s going on at almost anytime, this is the app for you. Whether it be a traffic notification, weather warnings, or basic news stories, you’ll hear about it first on this app. Then maybe an hour or so later on some of the others. Get this one and keep it live all day long.

Informative.
I work during the day. So it is nice to come out at lunch time and get up to date on what is happening. Gives me the traffic so I can adjust my commute home. Weather updates allow me to plan for the evening and the breaking news alerts aloe me to know what is happening in the state and the important news around the world. I always seem to know before the other guys at work. Great app to have.

Disappointing Update
I’m not a fan of the new app and this has been my favorite weather and news app for years. I certainly don’t need news (Olympics) updates all night long, but I can’t find where to turn off news alerts, but keep weather alerts. I also don’t need “rain will start in 22 minutes”, just REAL weather alerts. The weather screens are also not as easy to scan and understand quickly. Please bring back the better functionality of the previous app.

It’s a Must Have
Love this app, especially notifications. It enables me to stay informed and connected on both a local and worldly level throughout my day. Reliably gives the “must know” latest local weather and news. Just the right amount of info comes across, and whomever discriminates what’s important enough to send in a notification does a great job!

Keeps us aware of Connecticut news
When we are home in Connecticut we watch the News T Six. We are currently in Florida where there is no Connecticut news on TV or in the newspaper. We are especially interested in the Covid 19 daily reports and vaccinations as well as the UConn men and women as the NCAA tournament is upon us. Thank you for keeping us informed. We love our state and will never leave!

Great Local News Coverage
This has become one of my favorite news apps. There are many local news stories covered immediately after they occur. They are thorough and professional. The weather reports are right on the money usually and constantly updated. I highly recommend this app.

App is crashing
The app has been crashing on me for 2 weeks. Every time I read the top stories and then switch to the the weather portion it just spins and spins. I close the app. Clear everything. Reopen the app and it still won’t open. I have even deleted and redownloaded the app with the problem happening. I have updated my iPhone to the current version. This has been an ongoing issue since I last updated my phone to 15.1.

NBC Connecticut
I’m almost obsessive about keeping track of the weather - hourly temperature fluctuation, etc. I use this app almost exclusively for weather, and it’s my favorite weather app now! The great thing about that is that I can always view a video of the latest meteorologists’ forecast, too, if I want. Thanks, NBC CT!

Convenience
I watch the app on my iPad in the morning while getting breakfast for the latest weather and news as I don’t have a tv in the kitchen, and I love the alerts I get for weather and emergency updates that come up on my phone while I’m at work as there’s no other way to hear news..great app for on the go people👍

Liberal Bias, don’t waste your time.
Don’t waste your time this news app. Even for a locally run app they are so liberal bias. I want to read news that isn’t pushing an agenda. I just want balanced local news. I counted 4 pro-Biden opinion articles (that keep in mind we’re not labeled as opinion) and 4 Trump bashing articles. Look if you’re telling the news that’s great bash who you have to bash but the verbiage is clearly one-sided. You know you can write an article without clearly making your bias opinion known right? I tried contacting the news agency, with no avail. So the app will be deleted.

Not totally happy, not totally disappointed
Here is few thoughts I have about the app. Hangs up a lot. It’s saying live updates which are not there, just pages trying to load or nbc logo and no info(I’m on Verizon and very good WiFi at home as well as at work, so definitely not my coverage issue).Another thing is that it’s seems like nobody proof reads the articles. A lot of spelling and grammatical issues. You would think that someone would be in charge of making sure that it’s: their books, not there books etc. Overall not happy.

Love the weather radar!
I use the weather radar all the time to check and see if rain is coming. It works like a charm 😊Several times I have sat at my son’s lacrosse practice and been able to determine if bad weather would hold off until practice is over. I highly recommend this app!

Love this app
I live in Texas but I’m from Connecticut – my friends and family still live there. I love this app because it keeps me informed with the things that are going on back home. The awesome thing about this is also informs me of the weather down in Texas. I wish the Dallas Fort Worth NBC Corporation would do it as good as a job as they are in Connecticut! Well done

Worse than the older app
Loved the old weather app that recently quit working. Was forced to start using this and promptly went and found an alternative weather app. I just wanted the weather, not all the other news. I won’t use this. My news feed comes from apple news that aggregates news from multiple outlets. I don’t want to or need to get news from only one place. I do like to get weather from one source that I trust. That used to be NBC 30, but I found another source when you discontinued the weather only app.

Great updates
It’s really nice to get updated in news as I don’t receive the Hartford Courant except the Sunday edition and can hear more local updates up to the minute. I do get our local newspaper but it doesn’t cover anything until the next day and is very localized . Great job. I especially appreciate weather for all of CT.

Good app for breaking news

Great App, Content Creators Need Help
Great for getting local news. With a little more updating of content I’d give it 5 stars. But the news alerts and live feeds are extremely informative it’s just the same content sits there for awhile. Sometimes a new story comes up that cancels out the news of the old story but the old story remains.

Good but not great
This app is useful for staying up to date throughout the day. However, I installed the app for the weather. Each time I open the app it either: force closes or doesn’t refresh the time/location (the app is always completely closed on my phone when I open it). I continue to use the app because it is the most user friendly minus the couple glitches.

I really Miss the Old NBC30 weather app. Please bring it back!!
I really miss the old NBC 30 first weather app. It kept saying that it was going to stop functioning after a certain date so once it stopped functioning I deleted the app. I downloaded this new app and its horrible. I wish they would bring back to older one which was the best weather app out there. My wife never deleted hers and apparently it's started working again but they no longer have the app on the App Store to download. I'm totally bummed.

Used to really like this app (mostly use it for the weather), but for the past few months I have had to close and re-open the app 3-4 times to get the weather tab to load. I enjoy being connected to local news from time to time, but I’m sick of dealing with this poor performance.
