User reviews of UK & World News
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+

Still broken! I use to love this app but its been pulling up old news stories for at least 6 months now and latest update only fixed it temporarily. Such a shame as this was a great app

Not fixed. I have had three articles out of date since the update. Still love this app for the news. Need a revised filter.

Fonts are enormous Can't read articles. Page loads with everything super zoomed in so that a blind monkey could read these stories from the kitchen behind me.... I am frustrated. Help!
