Used to have all my favourite topics easily on the top sliding bar. Now all missing. E.g.. football, formula 1, sport, now all missing. Tried to add them back once again. But says I've still got them all added to topics. No I'm not searching for my topics when a perfectly good app was working great before update. Please get it sorted. Always use this app, such a shame it's ruined in the update.. :0/
Over the past few years, it has been made increasingly difficult to navigate through different news topics. It started years ago when users were forced to place topics into "my news" just to be able to see them on the nav bar, and now users can't even see them at all without clicking "my news", an additional hurdle. Poor UX design, thought better of the BBC - meant to be a professional service.
Previously enjoyed BBC News app. I'll stop using it and get quick news elsewhere. What sort of minds thought it a good idea to do away with labels at top of page, which we had chosen for a quick click to the category of news we wished to check on. Now for no reason to suit readers, we have the plough through 'my news ' to try and find the news that might interest us. No thanks BBC. Life is too short. I'll go find a news app that is more considerate of its readers or more prepared to expend resources in understanding how the human mind works.
Somebody deleted my comment presumably because they did not like what I said. The new menu structure is rubbish! It is a massive backwards step. It would be much better to have the old menu system. It would also be better if they concentrated on having a login system using the licence number and postcode. That way we licence payers can see all the content when abroad instead of having huge chunks missing. I pay the licence fee and expect to be able to see what I pay for.
Really disappointed by the update which moves "my news" behind a separate menu requiring you to go back to see the other categories you have chosen. I thought it was an excellent app until this update, which now loses all flow. I hope the devs take note of all these reviews complaining of this new, unhelpful feature.
Terrible. The new interface is just awful and does not improve accessibility or ease of use - it's the exact opposite. Accessing 'My News' has now become unintuitive and downright fiddly to enter into to before you can navigate. Get the 'My News' section back on the top level with the news I decide I want to read.
In this release, we’ve made some changes to how you find your way around the app:
