    Used to be a great app but for the last few months it has been throwing up articles up to 4 years old as current news and there is no response from the authors when this is reported.

    Seems to be getting worse with all the old news items to the point I can't believe anything til I check the date. Guess it's to do with the way the BBC's website is set up but annoying nevertheless. Hope you can find a way round this as I do like this app

    Why is my feed showing articles from two years ago, even after refresh?

    The app is very easy to use. Use caution! BBC has a bad habit of posting stories that Att 5 or 6 years old. Very confusing!
