User reviews of BBC News

    Great app but has an annoying feature

    Great quality news with customized news feeds. As an expat in the USA it’s good to get more worldly news. But it has a small yet annoying thing. When you are reading an article and go back to the news listing you are sent back to the top of list. This is annoying as you have to then scroll all the way back to where you were. I’ve used many other news app and none have this and returns you to the place you were before. Not major but wish they would fix it

    A welcome break from US Media...

    Like all sources of News, it has its god and bad but then again that’s just what makes news what it is.......I do prefer fact oriented news which saves the writers opinion for the OPINION PAGES and I firmly believe that it is a Editor’s Duty to enforce such a policy, however today’s Media Outlets are more interested in getting a story out rather than fact checking. This condition runs rampart in the US and continues to cause great to grief. In general, folks want factual news and not ACOSTA TYPE BIAS.......whether it be directed at the Left or the Right.

    Good app, could be better

    Tons of other reviews have touched on the pros and cons of this app, so I’ll skip right to my peeve. When I’m in an article and I swipe left to right, I want to go back to the list of articles (headlines), not the previous article in the list! I didn’t tap that article because I didn’t want to read it. I don’t want to have to tap the tiny little back arrow in the top left corner. I WANT TO SWIPE. This is a stupid design. Going article to article right to left, fine. But get me out of article hell left to right.

    Coverage of the Queen is lame

    Goes for weeks without changing. Often isn't even about the Queen. You may not be interested in royalty, but your readers often are. Thanks a LOT! The queens horse story is the most lame of all! Christmas week: you appear to have hired someone for this feature who understands the American fascination with British royalty and have up-graded your coverage.

    New bug

    Great app for content; not so much for quality user interface. Even though settings are set to never auto-play video, video commercials do indeed auto-play with annoying sound immediately starting. Shame on the program for allowing that. The practice of always going back to the top of the list when returning to it is also lazy programming just because the list is now different from what it last was as the user entered it. If I want to see “new news”, allow me to refresh it manually. Otherwise find the article where I was (reinsert it into the master list if it is no longer there) and allow me to see the rest so that I can choose which one I want to read next.
