Information at your hands Great app because it gives most recent accurate updates that one could rely on. It is also easy to go through the different sections if you need additional and more specific information be it related to science, culture, technology you name it. Finally it gives you the option to control what you see based on your interest (customize it) and alert you on breaking news. Amazing app!
UNFORGIVABLE IGNORANCE Most of BBC's news coverage is bright, fresh, interesting, informative, and well-balanced. However, when it comes to explain the political panorama of South American countries, it often lacks accuracy, clear vision, and even correct appraisal of what is really happening. Take the almost two-decade-long tragedy of Venezuela, for example. Each one of your appointed reporters have failed miserably to understand the true nature, the marrow of what have been the country's ills, and who are responsible for them.
Works great! Very quick turnaround time on fixing reported bugs. Great work! My only complaint is that I get the same Breaking News notification for aid convoys being halted in Syria that I do for Brad and Angelina divorcing. The former is definitely a bigger deal than the latter, come on. Samsung Galaxy S6.
Working rather smoothly The widgets weren't working in the older version. The app works fairly well overall. Just some minor glitches that don't detract from the usability. I would love to be able to save pictures and videos from the app to my gallery. And a better "share" button that places recently used sharing apps on top would be welcome.
Out of its prime The new(ish) format for your videos is awful. It used to be the simple who what where why how with a friendly correspondent narrating over the background. Now they're all set to lame music with lame typography all over the screen, like some cheesy artsy video. I get you want to stay modern, but you're classier than that. Also, everytime I see a video I want to watch on your app I switch over to YouTube to avoid a 15 second unskippable ad I've seen about a billion times.
Limited the amount of stories The app went from having 8 to 9 articles per day which were readable to having 3 articles per day and then endless 1 minute videos. Very useless for my train commute, or for light reading. They have been slowly moving towards this for a while. Sad to see such a great app get worse
