All click bait non-news stories. I absolutely detest the daily round up each day I want to decide what items interest me. Too many pointless videos, we can read it is a shame you can't be bothered to write anymore.
This app presents the stories in an over complicated jumble. The old version was just so much better with a simpler but very superior interface. The news is there but you have to dig around for it. Good quality news when you can find it.
With every update this app gets worse. This time it's really bad. Now video has been rendered so difficult and annoying that it has become virtually unusable. If I choose to play a video, then weirdly enough that's the video I want to play and only that video. I will often play a related video, but only after I find it interests me. In the vanishingly unlikely event that someone actually wants such a feature as follow-on autoplay on a mobile device , then allow it to be selected in settings; why be so antisocial as to impose this? Previously I could watch a video full screen, without having to turn on the annoying screen-rotate function - that was helpful and user-friendly, so naturally that has been stopped! I really can't work out why the BBC are so set on rendering this App unusable; it makes no sense.
Ui now over complicated and often hangs on buffering. Need a rollback, nothing wrong with the old version.
****Uprated to 5 stars now I know how to turn the Breaking News alert sound off**** I like this app BUT I don't like the noise it makes when a Breaking News story comes in. It makes me jump! Can I turn this off without putting phone on silent??
Great when it works but it only works 25% of the time. Tried to fix it on my end but the widget just keeps breaking and requires a reinstall to get it to work for another week.
