    BBC News's review

    Published: 2012-02-21, by .

    BBC News is the official Android app of the news channel

    • Scrollable streams
    • User-friendly interface
    • Fast and reliable
    • Audio and video resources too
    • It should enhance it sharing options

    "If BBC is your source, this is your app"

    There are lots of apps that stream different news sources like readers. However, there are always some sources we rely most because we're used to them or maybe because we agree with their editorial line. If that is what happen to you regarding BBC News, keep reading.

    BBC News is a news reader which only source is BBC. However, it streams BBC from different regions and categories: Sports, Health, Middle East, USA, Tech... You can choose what categories you want to highlight in the home. Each one of the rows is a category chosen by you. Thus, the home is made up by scrollable streams with articles sorted by latest. Just tap on the image to read them. It opens the article really fast.

    There's no need to launch the browser: you can read the full article from the app. What's more, you can share articles by long-pressing on its preview (not really intuitive this way to share). You can also access videos and audio resources provided by BBC as well as send to BBC news reports (attaching phone number and location) if something noticeable is happening around you.

    In a nutshell, BBC News brings to this app the most of the resources available in the web version. Reporting to the editorial team is an added-value feature. The only catch of this app is that it should enhance the sharing options.

    All of a sudden all sections are showing "There was a problem loading this content. Please try again later" except for the My News section. So it's not working

    I live in the US and the BBC is a fantastic way for me to get real news.

    The language is understandable, photos are bright and presice but videos take too long in break -up searchings
