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+

Awesome app but Love this app.and use it every day. But articles from YEARS ago occasionally show up in the popular news feed. I would like to be able to automatically filter those out. Please add that feature!

App pulling old articles The app is constantly pulling old articles from years ago. Please find out why and rectify the situation.

Higher resolution images please! This app thinks I still have a first gen Android - images are of very poor quality. Please add option to view at much higher resolution. Then I'll give 5*

Old news with new news For a while years old news are appearing with new news. This is very annoying. Wrote to the developer multiple times but no response.

Old article glitches Love this app except for when all of a sudden I'm stuck with articles from 2006 and 2009 even after I sync it multiple times.....
