the app refreshes automatically when you back out of a story so you may miss another story that you wanted to look at. But I've noticed recently the content has a political-tone, often including information that isn't relevant with the story but will paint a bias opinion of the article. BBC is no longer unbiased when it comes to information.
There are some videos in the app that require the "BBC Media Player" to be installed in order to view them (an extra app). It would be great if this app did not need additional media players to watch certain videos. This is happening in the article named "First human parachute jump from a drone and other news".
Latest update has changed the font to some crappy, harder to read version. The headings now consist predominantly of 2 or 3 word titles instead of proper descriptions. The popup adverts don't even scale properly on a mobile screen. A lot of content does not get updated regularly (for example Physics is usually months out of date). Apparently nothing ever happens at the weekend as World and Australia don't get updated at all. A lot of the commentary reporting is heavily biased and anti-anything-not-alphabet-gender(lbgtiqcisw) or anti-trump. Pretty poor effort to be honest.
Every time i want to watch a video of a news story i have to watch an advertisement, which in most cases, is longer than the video news story. Although i can understand the need for advertising, i believe a better balance needs to be implented on video content advertising. I dont watch video content for this reason.
I have so enjoyed my BBC news that I have stopped feeling bereft. As I have been away from UK for a while. I only accidently came on to your app. I would say more advertising your app would be a great idea.
For current news the app is good. However for news from BBC magazine, capital & elsewhere it is not updated frequently.(maybe 1 new story a week) also any news in Earth or Animals section you have to go to BBC Earth app to read. I also wish you could save to read offline. If you want current world news it's good for that.
