Remember - this is the APP, not the OUTLET. Calling this app 'fake news' is like calling a sponge something you can dam a river with. From my perspective, even as a sociologist critical of some media outlets, the stories are arranged in an informative way, categories are structured to interest you, and reports are easily accessible. The widget works wonders to me, and the notifications are always informing me of the latest news. So for the love of God, jump off the 'fake news' bandwagon. We're talking app reviews, not alt-right criticism.
This used to be an invaluable app. Now the BBC have decided that we no longer need fast ready access to crucial news and updates; for some inexplicable reason they have decided that video content is what we need. It isn't. It's just fast access to what's happening. I suggest you make a light version, no video, no GPS tracking (I know where to find local news content); speed it up please!
Awful. Function works but editorially horrendous. Used to be a news app. Now just junk magazine features and sob stories and individual grumbles (which as any scientist knows is worth FA). Hate to say so but the BBC had lost it's way big time. Need to stop being so right on before I'll be interested again..
Don't be downbeat by the negative reviews BBC. The old app was OK on smaller phones but this new app is beautiful like browsing a magazine on larger devices like my Nexus 6. Material Design too, I feel spoiled. Old app was more restrictive on topics this one let's me view much more. Easy to use and beautiful to look at. Well done.
The BBC at one point in time focused on reporting good, accurate news when it mattered. Now it's turned into yet another cancerous buzzfeed or gawker app that focuses on what no name bloggers think by having three quarters of the thing filled with editorials. Complete waste of both memory in your phone, and now importantly, tax payer money
Latest update has ruined what was a nice simple app. Pressing "reload page" when it says there are updates it gets stuck, and never reloads. Refreshing by pulling down from the top works fine, but the "there are updates" message doesn't disappear. Content has become too video-orientated. Please sort this out... It was one of the best free news apps, now it's terrible.
We are releasing regular updates to the BBC News app to fix issues and improve performance.
This app works with BBC websites and apps to play BBC content on your device.
