    "What in the world is happening right now?"

    Welcome to the official BBC News app, bringing you the latest from the acclaimed UK-based journalists. All the most recent updates on tech, sports, health, entertainment, and business are here - personalize your settings so you see just the news that's most important to you. The video version of BBC News is also accessible from the app, offering live reports from around the world as developments take place.

    If you like, the app can send you push notifications as really important news breaks. You can also set it so that stories will only download when you have wifi, so you can then read them from anywhere without threatening your data plan.

    If you tune in to the BBC frequently - or if you're just looking for a solid news app covering international events - the official BBC News app is a great choice.

    Great apart from F1 spoilers. Keep sports news separate please.

    Previous version showed key news items concisely. Now get random topics like a magazine instead and have to go digging for real news. Please get back to older approach even with the trainee 'feature' that couldn't sideways scroll on first item.

    App is blatantly sexist. Less than half the articles seem to be written be women. Future updates should actively discriminate against against male writers to ensure parity.

    A recent update to the new app has meant it now longer displays the "Top news stories" and instead shows what ever it feels like. No longer in the loop on the days events, after using this app for years I am now unfortunately thinking of looking elsewhere
