It doesn't work on my Windows phone. Only the logo and briefs portion of the news appeared, but can't read the article.

"BBC News read top news" voice command doesn't work. Can't listen to streaming news. I was looking for an app that would allow me to listen to BBC news while I'm getting ready in the morning.

They've discontinued the live tile, so its just a blue tile saying "live tile discontinued"'other than that the app is kept up to date and is nicely set out.

Live tile stops updating after a few days. The only way around this is to uninstall/reinstall the app. Apparently this is a common issue with most apps after the 7.8 update.

This is not an app from BBC. But still does a great job. I use it everyday to get the daily world news bites and pictures from BBC.
