Not bad Start positive, sport particularly football is up to date, local news often contains stories a week or more old. Paper reviews often 2-3 days old, and sometimes when it updates I lose all my customisations. Also having to download BBC media player to play clips a pain I have good media players and don't need another
Good app Not bad I use it most days and am generally very happy with it. Difficult to say whether the news quality is the fault of the app, BBC news or the world in general.
Not subtle enough All these things are a miracle to someone born in the 1950s. But the range of choices offered for Personalising with Your News is so unsubtle and basic; and I already know most of the so-say Breaking News.
Growing on me I've got two versions of the BBC News app., the old simple version, and the updated new look app., both on Samsung Note 2014 tablets. I didn't update the old version because it got well criticised when it came out, and the new version was forced on me when I had to buy my second tablet. But guess what, I like them both! In spite of my earlier misgivings, the new video heavy version is very, very good, and offers WAY much more than the simpler version, with lots of related and historical news items. Not terribly intuitive to use, but I'm beginning to like the interface. Only criticism is the new version videos freeze quite regularly giving the "Unfortunately the BBC News has stopped" message.
Good Need to be able to amend subjects easier. I could not find regional ones easy
Great news app I've had problems on the iPhone but the Android app works perfectly and is now very customisable
