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!
Getting worse as time goes on. This App used to be a quick way of getting the latest news. Unfortunately, poor management has allowed the developers to add more and more unnecessary features. For example, videos are scattered throughout the text reports instead of keeping them in a separate section. If I wanted video, I could watch TV. Please bring back the speed and simplicity of earlier versions.
The BBC News app was great from 2011 to 2014. Then someone at the BBC decided to give editorial control. It doesn't work because news stories are incorrectly tagged. It's as if the page writers aren't aware of all the thousands of niche categories you've allowed users to set.
Despite several recent updates my "Top Stories" tab remains broken. It constantly reports "there was a problem loading this content" whilst other tabs work fine. Repeated uninstall/reinstall cycles, rebooting phone and trying various different mobile data/WiFi connections have no effect. Help!
There is nothing but old news on this app, the most of it is at least two days old and some even three! The news story's have to be updated a lot more frequently! Sky news kick the crap out of this.
The latest update still does not allow me to open at My News. In My News the local news is mostly football related - don't want it, there's more important things in life. Also, still far too many videos at times, sometimes more than half of content in a category. Too slow to sync and sometimes refuses to do so. What used to be a good app is now useless and will no longer be used by me until I hear of improvement.
We are releasing regular updates to the BBC News app to fix issues and improve performance.
