Reviews From google play store

This app would be greatly improved if the BBC were to report on domestic matters truthfully, rather than ignoring what is really happening in the UK today. I used to read it first thing every day but now I mainly read it to find out what the present government would like me to believe. I get the real news from elsewhere. RIP BBC. update May 2019. No improvement. if anything, even more controlled by Tory government. Plus trivia. And little videos for people who can' t read.

there is no point in explaining reason for low score, as it makes no difference to developer. even reading what is in latest update expresses developer's attitude to user. developer gives a non-discript statement that could mean anything they would like it to mean. which really means we have just added some "stuff" that we like and consider value, and don't care about the user

been using it for over 5 years now, easy to use and allows me to read news on the go. From time to time, certain news will crash unexpectedly, not sure because of controversy or revisions but regardless is a solid app for catching up on world news

From bayhood l am hearing BBC news through Radio, now observing in TV, mobile. Without observing this news l never satisfied with others news. It's really unparalleled. It's not sufficient to get the news from local news. To know the world's present situation with weather effect this news helps us to get alart about all types of informations.

Because I live abroad the BBC News gives me the up to date news at home , I just don't know were I would be without it. carry on with the great work guys and thank you.

dirty dirty smear merchants. fake news, irrelevant. YouTubers have more credibility

Im finding more and more that the stories lean to one side and are not entirely accurate. When you do some of your own research on a topic you see it. American news outlets failed me completely with false news and the BBC isnt that far off.

Very good but slow, I check BBC news twice a day and other news outlets have breaking news faster, the BBC has it half a day later sometimes. Also the self tabs on countries or facts are not updated as often, again I have a tab on various Asian countries and have to wait a couple of weeks when news 360 will have news everyday otherwise it's great.

great news app, good customisation options to deliver news on issues I'm interested in. Sometimes videos don't flip to fullscreen well and go black instead (Samsung 8)

the most widely viewed english news world wide. one has to be careful with what they see on the app due to the fact that people some times make mistakes so they should take the information with a grain of salt. but overall it all good.

SJW communist propaganda news. When i first started reading was quitr good than it quickly shifted to a wierd biast news reporting. Dont waste your time with this garbage news report.

Dead after latest update. Moto G5 Plus. App was rock solid for years, dead to me now. Too bad.

PLEASE PLEASE make a night time version with a darck background so ky eyes dont have to strain reading on the dark! I'm already reading your news but still have weird clickbait titles under the thumbnail. my last review said it was 7/2015, you have not improved and i find myself using other news sources 90% of the time.

Was a great app. Lately, Video of the Day keeps crashing. Also, more stories have the "Try again later" message.

I found a fraudulent review under my name praising the app. In fact I wrote about the annoying loud video ads playing suddenly when you just want to read quietly. Playing video ads should possible only when viewing video news or other features. There should be a way to turn this off. If I silence my phone I miss important calls, if I don't I get embarrassed by loud ads.

Broad overview of the world news , need to be aware that as all media ,BBC has a definite bias .best of what is out there

Far too many videos on news pages, should put all of them under a separate heading.

The journalism reported is real facts which does not influence judgements. The links provided in between the article gives a better understanding of the background of the news reported and gives information in all dimension, covering every aspect that is reported even in the past.

Awesome. My only criticism is that its often difficult to find a specific article when looking for it.

BBC News gives up-to-date information all day. News not tainted with propaganda.
