I love the content still but all the graphics seems to make it slower. An update since I first wrote this seems to have made it load faster. But still I prefer print over all the video and graphic content, just link to that. It remains my go to news source. Still working well with Nougat, some apps are dragging. No change as of today
App is now intrusive ad cluttered garbage This app used to have a brilliant, easy to browse and navigate interface that was both attractive and very easy to use. Over the last couple years it first became ugly and harder to use, and now it's packed full of giant page spanning intrusive ads to the point of being nearly unreadable and far beyond annoying. Positively awful.
Dysfunctional In Feb 2016 I wrote: What's the advantage of this app? Previously, using my browser, I could open multiple tabs and save pages, so I had no complaints. - Now it is even worse: it does not work, just keeps telling me to check my internet connection. Folks: my connection is fine, and everything works except this crap app. Uninstalled it...
BBC News covers it all BBC covers so much more than just American news, which to me, is refreshing and far more balanced and fair. American media can get overly immersed in a subject and completely ignore what else occured in the world. BBC has a wide range of categories and none seem to suffer neglect or poor reporting.
Annoying,non-skippable, repetitive video ads and confusing news tabs The design and UX is quite broken and falls short of expectations. One extra star added to the rating for the redeemable BBC image, reputation, and branding.
Excellent app from most trustworthy source Consider my rating 4.5 stars. I didn't give it five stars because I think it's missing an important feature: being able to hear (or download and hear) the last top of the hour newscast with one or two taps. Many of us are busy and not on hand at the top of the hour. Having this option solves.
We are releasing regular updates to the BBC News app to fix issues and improve performance.
This release includes
- A brand new video feature in the mobile app that enables you to swipe through a curated list of “videos of the day”. For the first time you will be able to watch full screen portrait video created for ease of use on mobile.
- Improved navigation with clearer sections and style
