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+

Old news I've used this app for many years but I have to say goodbye. Too many of the headlines are from months or even years ago. This makes it now a poor news app

Wtf? Steve Jobs died again? Why are my "latest headlines" all over a year old? Both my devices are telling me that "Steve jobs just died", a year late... It worked pretty well until last week. Months later, It's still doing it, year old news posted as new headlines...

Gone weird All was great until today; now all articles are zoomed in at maximum with no way of zooming out.
