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.
Intensely irritating What drives me nuts about this app and renders it effectively useless is that the widget prioritises the display of sports stories and items with video over more important real news. World War Three could break out and this app would be presenting me with video of a goal in last night's match. I don't CARE about the latest scores. I DON'T want to watch video just because it's magic moving pictures. Change the algorithm for goodness' sake! In the meantime I've installed the Reuters app instead.
Definite improvement. No more Summary unavailable. However we are back to the old problem of ancient articles displayed as headlines on the widget.
Issues The text in articles is huge and there is no way to fix it. Also pictures rarely load up because the article is all squashed together with what looks like a menu all jumbled up at the top where the picture should be. I've tried looking in preferences but there doesn't seem to be a way to fix it. I am using the galaxy s4
Zoom issues Good to see an update, many thanks. Zoom issue is still there, exit when zoomed and it stays that way requiring 's reinstall. LG G4
Errors Was a very good programme but now I can't see anything keeps coming up summary unavailable it's getting very annoying as have to go into each summary to look at the news to find I may not want to read it. Please fix this issue then it will be 5 stars. Update has been really good getting news feeds now but then getting message news has unexpectedly stopped wish there was a half star as would be 4.5 well done
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 **
Pull to refresh. Modern style menus and app bar. ** Tabs are gone; Select Feed is now an icon on the App Bar **
