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 Then there are the articles that are out of date by a few days and you have already read.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.
Great app to get news. Not sure if it's a bug, but when I hold the back button on my Galaxy S6 edge, text appears overlapping other article titles. Text includes, "search topics, my news, settings..." and other items included that are mentioned in the pop up box in the top left hand corner.
This app has gotten consistently worse over time. It's takes so long to load now, that it almost doesn't open for 2-3 second. You need to get professionals to help develop your software. Never the terrible customer experience for the ads and changing volume
