Offline mode The "offline" mode doesnt work. When you're traveling and in between sim cards its nice to be able to download all the articles and not be met with "lost connection". I want to be able to automatically download ALL the contents and have it cached until it's reloaded again. If you can provide some options for being able to control this (e.g. wifi vs roaming) then it would make the app much better. Thank you!
Great app - it gives me all I need Love the BBC app for its unrivalled news and sports reporting. It's the first think I look at in the morning - apart from my wife of course - especially the Footie Gossip. Like most gossip, only a small fraction of it is ever true but it's still fun to read all the speculation. News coverage is good and as I'd expect from the BBC, unbiased at all times. Tony B
BBC content quality. With bugs The adroid wear bit often does not work, stalls...times out. However...when it works it stands out as the best in the field. the only one actually allowing to read more than the headlines and even keep reading further. ON THE SMARTWATCH no less. Other news apps should take note....i wish i could pay taxes to the BBCfor a news service better than our own.Greetings grom germany
Notification buttons not working It seems impossible to use the Play, Pause and Close button in notification bar. I have to open again the app to play or go to settings just to force it to stop. Please fix. Thanks. I really love BBC so it will be very convenient to me if this will be resolved. More power to you guys!
Effectively no offline functionality This is a good app, with one notable exception. Even with all relevant settings checked (background synching, mobile data usage, image downloading) the app will not download stories for later reading. Most of my day I have access to either WiFi or cell data. The app used to download stories during this time so I could read them when I was out of service. Now it just saves the title and thumbnail and nothing else. If the app can manage this, why not the whole article?
Great app Great news source I love this app! I get news as it happens. Much faster than USA news networks and online sources. I love BBC News because they tell the real story even though it may be graphic and/morbid. They do warn their audience so we have the option to look away. Thank you BBC News and the developers who created this app. Keep up the great work.
