    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.

    Apart from the massive amount of irritating ads, the app is more or less fine - if you like Buzzfeed-style clickbait "journalism," that is. The quality of news at the BBC has declined so markedly over the past few years, to the point that nearly all the articles are sensationalist nonsense, listicles and various other types of clickbait. I feel deeply sorry for British taxpayers who have to subsidise this vile garbage and hope that one day the BBC will rediscover how the news should be reported. Sad!

    At one time I had liked BBC news they usto cover stories that matter that gave you a insite in current issues. But now all we get are SJW ideot stories the things that you consider news are reducalus fox news standard of news reporting and stories. Example - I don't live in America but your stories on trump are so one sided anyone can see it's pure SJW propaganda you BBC world news are a breeding grown for immorality and Corruption. I'm switching to AL Jazeera app hopefully they are somewhat honest with there reporting and not completely under SJW and Angela merkle control. You and fox news are the reason alternative news networks are booming right now
