A great app that I use several times a day BUT I wish it wouldn't keep telling of my version of Flash isn't compatible.

Very well presented news app. Easy to use and very consise. Only improvement I would like to see is more customisation for the widget(s) with the option for different colour styles.

The best app on android for tracking news

So many BBC apps to choose from, but this is certainly the best. Love the notification you get in the toolbar for breaking major news stories. Any chance you could do something like this with the footy focus app, using something similar for goalflashes? Anyway A+

It was a nice app Everything worked well until today. I zoomed in to enlarge the text, and it become stuck. Now it won't let me zoom back out. Right now I can only see about 5 words on my screen. I tried to close the app and re open it but had no luck. Please fix

Errors seem to be gone! Come back to this app after months away, old issues seem to be fixed and I'm happy again.
