I've been using the BBC app for some time now, and have only one complaint. It works well, other than when it loads in advertisements, it will quiet my music while it is downloading the information required, doesn't seem like a purposeful feature and is quite annoying. Other than this though I have no complaints, only praise for the app, it provides me with the relevant world news I've come to rely on to keep myself informed
This news app is a very short read. Many of the news stories appear 2, 3 or 4 times under different categories. Then there are the random questions in the middle of an article that may be answered five paragraphs down. Then there are the articles that are out of date by a few days and you have already read. Hopefully BBC news online will be cut. There are better news apps out there. Often the news is days out off date. even wosre at weekends. BBC live often doesn't work.
Latest update messed it up. How come updates break apps rather fix them. There was nothing wrong in the first place. Now since last update app would not load content. It says 'an error ocurred we're trying to fix it'
Despite bug fixes, when playing live audio the app still creates a notification where only the pause button works (although the corresponding play button does not resume play) and the close button does not work. The only way to close the notification is to force close the app. I've reproduced the issue on a Galaxy S4 running Lollipop and a Nexus 5X on Marshmallow so this isn't a config issue on my end. This seems extraordinarily easy to fix but has persisted for at least a year.
Newest version is buggy. When scrolling through the news headlines in the widget and clicking on a certain headline it always takes me to the first article and never opens the one I want. Very frustrating!
Was 4 stars, now 1 until the developers fix it. Love the widgets, happy with how it works. Just three big problems: 1) since last update it calls up the wrong article from the widget. 2) selecting text to copy elsewhere is much improved but spaces are missing, and won't do more than a paragraph. 3) quizzes don't work.
We are releasing regular updates to the BBC News app to fix issues and improve performance.
