NBC News App Gets A Makeover With Version 5, No Longer Looks Like Something Hatched From The Froyo Era

If you prefer to get your news hot and steaming from the NBC pipeline, I feel kind of bad for you. Not really because of NBC itself, but because the app was just so ugly. Thankfully NBC woke up and realized the app was basically reminiscent of a child's plaything and had the developer, Zumobi Apps, craft a new one. This one's much prettier.
