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
I am a regular to this news site. I like the diversity of the issues and cultures and personalities I access here. I also appreciate some of the commentary when the issues thicken, and i like the expanded in- depth articles on items I might not otherwise be interested in. There is of course some bias and it would be interesting to receive more representative reporting from the less westernised parts of the globe ie. Soviet Union, Asia, or indigenous peoples, but certainly there is a regular presentation of the disadvantaged and displaced on this site as well alongside the wealthy and influential masters of the planet.
Used the app for years and was really satisfied. Lately the ads have become intrusive and content doesn't seem to be updated as often. Do like the option to swipe left for the next article.
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.
This app is so unstable since the last update that during each session that it is opened, it crashes. Furthermore they have now introduced a full page advert which has to be closed, i.e. besides multiple ads on each page, obliviously they are finding people are ignoring the advertisement, so they have to force it on us.
I think it is quite balanced as far as reporting the news goes. It's government funded like the CBC we have here in Canada but better. You always have to be wary of a right or left lean.
We are releasing regular updates to the BBC News app to enhance the experience.
