It is about current events but not real news and analysis. I think news is no longer current events. What I read here is the same as every where. I LOVE BBC for their unbiased stand...but real news is what adds value for a reader and can use it to better himself or the community he lives within. Plus business news is weak. We need news that can surprise us and make us work for something with substance and purpose. I am critiquing and not criticizing. All in all and the reason for the above is because I am BBC person and would love if BBC can always outshine others. Good luck.
BBC.tries to stay unbiased which is good but the stories are too brief. Bizarrely the BBC should look at the Guardian for good length of articles. However it us the one app that fails to refresh or reload, so I have uninstalled it and reinstalled to see if this improves things. Oh, and full page ads that pop up? On BBC?
Did you even read the material design guidelines? If you can't implement the guideline correctly. Just don't do it. You not only made the app look horrible but you made it unintuitive. Everything about this app is the reason android gets a bad rep. You had an opportunity to make a great app and blew it. Just because there are cardviews, doesn't mean you need it!!!! Lists are more functional for information. Your icons are Holo not Materiel. Reference New York Times. Delete.
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 Then there are the articles that are out of date by a few days and you have already read.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.
The app has so many errors not loading pages stating Internet issues. Even worse is trying to filter the news one gets exposed to does not stop bbc app from still posting news articles that one selects not to see ....ie. all their fake news articles. Not surprised really ...otherwise news propaganda would not work.
We are releasing regular updates to the BBC News app to fix issues and improve performance.
Don't get swayed, read news facts to have your own opinion on important issues.
