One of the best BBC news app's out there. Could do with the ability to re-order your selected news areas though. Could also do with a quick link to the weather.More
Everything about this app is amazing. It is fluid, fast and beautiful. This is what Windows 8 was designed for. If the BBC ever puts out their own app I doubt it will be able to top this. 5/5 easily. I wish CNN had an app like this.More
Very nicely put together app. Looks like the BBC
For a non-BBC app, this does an impressive job of looking official. It is beautifully laid-out, and makes excellent use of the "Day in Pictures" for the front page. There are a few little random characters now and again, and of course the disclaimer at the end of each article that it is not a BBC App. My only request would be to change to a sans-serif font for the stories.More
Sticky and unwanted
I very much want to uninstall this dumbed-down news app. However it does not register as a program in my windows 8 RT device control panel. . Until this is fixed, installation is a one way tripMore
nice but need something!
a very good app but 1- the week in pictures mode is excellent but the sections on the right should be somewhat customizable. 2- the live tile will be much more beautiful with picture of the news something like the news360 or the default news app.More
This is a 3rd party app apparently not linked to the BBC, though, from the designs you'd think anything but. Anyhow, it does report some news, but I've noticed it's never the most pertinent of news. The top stories seldom appear on the start menu, and once opened again the priorities are way off. This has all probably to do with the fact that in the end this app just reformat information from the BBC website; it needs to be better coded.More
Even better in Windows 8
I've used this on WP7 and it's a great app. Now on Windows 8 the extra space really makes a difference. I love the images. A few tweaks and this will be a 5 star app!More
Get it while it's hot.
A very functional app. Get this one while it's still here, BBC threw a hissy fit and requested it be removed from the store.More
