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
Jan 13, 2011
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+

Date Errors Would have been 5 but occasionally out of date items appear and are labeled as new. Makes you doubt your sanity. Is this Déjà Vu or did I foretell the the future?

Old News Feed Time to move on

Becoming a provider of out of date news I've been using this app for years. It's a good little app. But recently most of the current news headlines seem to be from between 6 months and 2 years ago. It's frustrating, especially abroad when data costs. If I wanted old news I'd watch the history channel. Hopefully it'll be fixed but judging by the comments here I suspect not and it'll be time to switch to something else. A great shame.

This was a good news app however it is posting news that is 2-3 years old.
