Time to take a step back. This app used to be basic, but fast and reliable. As bells and whistles have been added it has become slower and more unstable. I want a fast, convenient, reliable news reader. This app gets further away from that on every update. Edit: So now you force me to update and YOU DO IT WHILST I AM READING THE NEWS. Have you totally lost sight of who the customer is? I was halfway through a story. This had better be worth it. ..
Back to its best The BBC news app is hands down one of the best news apps on Google play. It's concise, stable and intuitive. The user interface is up to date and gives a great reading experience. I'm also happy to say that the developers seemed to have listened and brought back the scroll bar which was removed in previous versions, making reading tedious. Integrated media player works well and makes for a great addition to some articles. Great job
A pain in the backside. (Typical BBC) This update is worse than the previous version. Slow to update, my news constantly buffering and only shows a few stories on time line. If it ain't broke don't fix it. I presume this is the same team as iplayer and they have made a pigs backside of that. This looks like it's heading the same way. Get rid of the BBC permanently. And it crashes when I play a video
Latest 'up'date is a joke Far from being an improvement they've managed to make it much worse. It no longer opens on last used and when you select My News By Time it wastes upwards of 30 seconds apparently retrieving updates before it's usable. You've been my news app for over 5 years but the last update was bad and this is is unforgivable. Bye bye Beeb
Oh no, another update Now don't get the "My News" items in the header banner, yet they are still in the My News preferences. This now happens on more than one device, so you have buggered up the app again. Can you not just leave it as it was cos each update makes it worse than the last one. That and the English, Tory bias.
Surprise! The update has issues again! Fix the timelime bug please!!!!! Why do updates do this app always cause more issue? I like to view news by 'time', so I don't keep duplicating the stories by switching to multiple headings. You can no longer view time past a very small amount of stories, rendering it useless. This means duplications of heading as you awkwardly are forced to nagigate the app.
