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.
This used to be an invaluable app. Now the BBC have decided that we no longer need 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, sans video.
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.
Why oh why are so many video clips now being used? I read the news on this app as it has informed opinions. More journalism please
videos, videos, videos. football, football, football. there's more to life than those two topics BBC, please feed me concise local and national news like you once used to :(
As unbiased as can be expected in these days of Government threats and budget control. Well done BBC!
