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+

Well done. I'm not a super news person, but when interested I want it relible, current and easy to access. Good options to customize, and updates well. I've had this for severalmonths now and I'm very pleased. One suggestion: an option to customize the colors wold be great.
