Unplayable videos even after downloading video player. Note that a few videos are playable even without the bbc player which makes no sense whatsoever. Very frustrating tbh. Old stories are almost inaccessible. I recommend creating a favourite list where one can keep track of interesting stories. I use this app just because it's great in keeping track of news you are interested in.
I've been using this app to keep up to date on national and international new. The BBC provides balanced, high-quality, professional journalism. This app is easy to use, features breaking news notifications, and allows you to customize the list of articles according to topics or regions that are of personal it erst to you. Highly recommend this free app.
Older version was easier to use. Simple yet elegant and easy to go direct to the content I wanted at the time. The new version seems to focus on trending. Update - it's okay. Too many adverts before video content which is annoying. Who watches those ads anyway!?
This used to be a great news app, if not the best news app on the play store. Since the last update it feels like a spam website full of ads that take up half the page with all sorts of content. Long time user but will now delete. Goodbye
The BBC coverage is excellent in breadth and depth. You may find yourself reading stories on subjects rarely covered in US media. It's nice to see what Europeans are thinking about, and to get a look at what's going on in Africa and India. I have read some excellent long form features on weekends. While you can customize the topics covered, somehow I never deleted sports, though I mostly ignore the formula 1 and premier league football stories. It just helps to put our NFL obsession into perspective.
I like this app a lot but the video pre-roll ads are very poorly managed and make me want to get some sort of adblocker running. They're usually 30 seconds long and are the same ad over and over again (currently AGL energy) at the start of every video. Please sort out the ad serving because I don't watch the videos any more.
