No updates Sadly, it looks like the developer has stopped work on this app. His website is offline, he isn't answering emails, and app continues to show only summaries. Great product, showing its age. UPDATE on 6th October. Great news. This is again my favourite app since last update. Feeds much more intuitive, and no issues with headlines. Also seems quicker. Back to 5 stars. Thanks Jim
Best news app. It's well balanced with different types of stories and always up to date. But the pictures are often small, blurry or missing, and links are not always present, even when referenced. Update (3/8/16): A reinstall restored the giant text to normal size. I still want to see pictures and graphics.
Used a lot Picture quality is much better now on my tablet. I still have one issue: I regularly get a message saying "unfortunately UK & world news has stopped". I always used to get this a few seconds after manually closing the app, but now it seems to close itself randomly when it is running in the background. The message always appears twice, a few seconds apart. I've not seen any other reports of this.
Back to best Had nearly gave up on this app, even downloaded the BBC one to replace it… then dam me if you didn't update it ! Now it's back to its old fully functioning self again
Needs to be reinstalled. OK, UPDATE.I uninstalled the app then reinstalled it, now the stories are as they should be. Before I uninstalled the writing was far too big, I could read a whole page in 5 seconds. I couldn't reduce the stories any smaller, only magnify them, they were already too big so a reinstall was needed.
Take note BBC Reinforces my view of how BAD the beebs own app is. There may be some (minor) issues, but it's so much better in terms of quick access to the news and I love it.
No more articles without headlines as the app fetches headline data when it is missing in the feed. ** Thank you for bearing with me as this problem was fixed **
