Dumbing it down....
Wow! CNBC went from one if the smartest, well conceived apps to just plain stale.... In a major update. Gone are swipe charting, gone is the current news with the quote ( well yes, it is still there, if a Friday headline is good for u, when Dow Future is off a buck 25), gone is the interface. It is sort of like when the Internet first started, big charts set the standard and was then passed by by every financial source out there. The CNBC update is vividly like big charts 1.0.

Graphic ads use too much data
This new version not only puts ads on the first page, but also uses very data hungry graphics for the ads. Each time you launch it to check the market, it uses 1 - 2 MB data. It now takes 3 moves to get to My Stocks, which already has the indexes... I need to watch my stocks, not colorful graphics! Not much advantage over the default Apple stock app, which has no ads and uses much less data. Deleting it...

Great app, needs one fix.
Huge fan of this app, use it everyday. But could you please fix it so that I can touch the top of my screen and go to the top.

Clunky interface
The new release starts on a main menu that can't be customized. It now takes three actions to see stock quotes for my favorite stocks, and it used to just start there. There are better sites for news, even business news. Now I have to slog past that to get to the important stuff. New interface? FAIL!

FAIL! Navigation in the IOS 7 vers. Is pure toture!!!
Unfortunately users of previous versions have painful recall of smooth well thought out navigation of the past renditions of this app. It takes several taps in IOS 7 version to move from My Stock market closing price screen to extended market screen. Idiotic. Nay, nay developer, there are very good reasons some sophisticated users want to conveniently view market close screen of all 20 stocks. CONVENIENTLY. And now moving from per-markets to My Stocks or reverse is three taps. Compare that to previous version. This isn't just poorly thought out, it's ignorant.
