Very informative.

Extremely happy with this app and with the comprehensive BBC coverage of news. It has written, , well laid out, informative articles with a combination of facts, explanations, and analyses. It also has excellent photographs and videos. I haven't encountered any problems with the app and it seems to work flawlessly.

I read nearly all the articles (not always the sports ) every day. BBC news informs me before my local news carries some of the breaking and headline news.

Too many stories about Ukraine war. Let's see some more topics please.

don't know about the app - I use it mainly for the breaking news notifications. they've just broken a bit - in that you can't detail expand them anymore, with the text flowing off stage right instead of allowing you to expand the notification...

Shaun Lambert

Great app, content I can trust.
