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+

Mixed Still regularly getting "current news" entries which turn out to be a decade old.

Fantastic, simple and easy to navigate Since the official BBC app had the worst update ever and I uninstalled it I have tried a number of news apps in my search for a replacement. I like the BBC content more than others news providers so this app is spot on. Works exactly like the old BBC app did. My only criticism would be the widget.

Enormous text Somehow zoomed in on text and now all articles are opening with text way too large to allow you to read it. No way to zoom back out.
