Simple interface that is customizable to give you the news you want. Nice that you can turn off push notifications. A good app that i use every day. Some pop up ads, but that is to be expected as it's free. I have noticed that occasionally some content won't load, and sometimes opening the videos section has crashed the app. Minor issues as it's not all the time.
Generally very reliable. A persistent, long-standing problem with accessing some stories with content unavailable. Rarely can access stories in the "Future" for example, and "Capitol". It is frustrating to have to seek the stories on a desktop. Downgrading my rating due to the long-standing nature of this problem as it affects many of the things I am most interested in.
Accurate information, with annoying pop up adverts. Now there is a almost continuous problem with loading content. It's getting worse on a daily basis. In App Feeds of BBC Capital and BBC Travel don't load. Apparently the developers are not keen to fix anything. Regular updates to enhance frustration, that's all I can think of. Pretty poor.
The app is decent, and easy to navigate. However, it is one of the most obnoxious apps I have as regards advertising within the app. Most of the ads are full width and take up a good part of the the page, top to bottom, as well as the occasional full page ad you have to close.
I thought I was reading accurate information, just till BBC started to "inform" about the Spanish news. I'm totally disappointed. That's not information is miss-information. And I don't thing what reason it's the worst, lack of knowledge about the matter or bad intentioned information. Shame.
Very good app. I especially like the breaking news. It keeps me informed of every important event as it happens while I am on the go or at work. As I hear the Breaking News Tone I just pick up my phone and read the story.
