Great way to keep up with international news.
The best news available. 5/5
My first stop for news every day. I can always depend on BBC for an accurate account of the news.
The very best 5/5
BBC news app has no comparison with others: the latest great news articles not just from your locality, but the World. Professional and unbiased.
Excellent content, clumsy navigation 1/5
By Dent De Leon
Let me express it graphically:
I find I hardy ever use this app anymore. I may delete it if I find I need to free up some space on my device.
Relief from drivel 5/5
Excellent US and European news, without American filter 5/5
Usually more info with less nonsense than US MSN.
BBC news 4/5
BBC news covers the world in their reporting. When I want to know what's happening this is where I go.
Handy but annoying 2/5
The app allows me to create a list of subjects I want to read about. Thats handy and makes my news feed specific to my tastes. I also find the content to be up to a day ahead of my local news station so they seem to do a good job there.
The con, when I am done reading a story and click back to return to my feed, it frequently takes me to the top of my feed. That is super annoying when I am reading them in order and now I have to scroll repeatedly down the feed to get back to where I was. Normal apps will say "hey there is new content up top click to get there" or similar and give the option to jump. But here it is automatic and happens even when no new stories are added to the feed. What is the purpose besides wasting my time? Usually by the fourth time of doing it I assume BBC just wants me to stop reading and I give up. Sadly Its because of this "feature" in the app that I am in the store looking for an alternative app for my news.
Must have for REAL News 5/5
One of the best resources for real news 24 hours a day with easy to use app clearly laid out.
Good coverage of world news 4/5
BBC News provides a credible second view of world news to Americans as well as the world.

By Judy McCoy
Thank you for excellent news app. This app updates more quickly than CNN and FOX. Impressive job! Thank you for a great job
Very good app! 5/5
I haven't had it crash or stop working since I downloaded it.
World News 5/5
Compared to my news choices here in the USA, it gives me a broader view on an hourly basis of what is happening in the World.
Awesome Job! 5/5
By Don de Luego
Simply the best, most impartial news in my opinion!! Thanks, BBC!!!
Great content, free on iPhone 5/5
I've always enjoyed the sun, and it's great to be able to read it for free on my iPhone.
Decent app but it randomly stops updating every now and then. What is the point of a refresh feature if it's just a placebo??
Timely and balanced reporting 5/5
By Hangs too much
BBC stays on top of what's going on, that's for sure.
Love it - good layout. Have the live stream on in the background through most of the day. Wish World Service wouldn't focus so much on sport at the weekend but I know a lot of people think differently.
WNYC in the night 5/5
I listen during the night on WNYC in New York, love it!!!
My 'go-to' news outlet 5/5
I continue to love this app!
It has the news I can count on for unbiased politics paired with updated app-technology from today's age.
All other news apps fail in comparison to BBC.
The Best 4/5
I always come back to this App. It's definitely my favorite way to read the news.
Quality news coverage from around the world. App works great. Haven't had any problems.
Best World Wide Content 5/5
The BBC consistently provides the most consistent and fair reporting of world events. It offers Americans an "outsiders" perspective of US news that is particularly enlightening.
Good solid news 5/5
Comprehensive and factual. In this day and age, need one say more?
Great App 5/5
I use this app a lot for catching up on the news. It's great.
Best news available 5/5
Most US news is biased so having BBC gives a more neutral, unbiased version.
Best UNBIASED news in the world. 5/5
By A. G. South Carolina.
Unlike CNN, ABC, FOX, etc, etc, BBC is one of the most unbiased news outlet around. All those other news companies should learn how to be impartial and fare. Thanks BBC.
BBC is great! 5/5
Best news source out there. The news sources in America have degenerated into little more than political propaganda. Thanks BBC.
I am so appreciative of the balanced news from BBC. The reporting is thorough and avoids the sensationalist presentation so common today: just the news, no hype.
Prompt, clear 5/5
By Montana Bott
Really great having clear, well presented, current, worldwide news!
Excellent news source with ease of use via app.
By Jonesy Sly
This app is totally kewl. Reminds me of that one time... Yeah, it's like that. Get this app if you totes wanna do it up real hep like.
Bill's Review 5/5
Great source of news of the world, not the limited views of U.S. national news. Depth of coverage is good and seems relatively unbiased.
By BLUBBER BOY
The BBC is good. Better than the USA news. But if you want real news watch RT news.
Works for news !! 4/5
I'm happy with it
Great app for checking out latest news.
My Go to spot for "REAL" information 4/5
News you can trust!
Great News App 5/5
BBC News is already great and the app just makes it that much better. I love how I can customize the news I care about. A must have app if you want REAL objective news stories and updates on world events.
The Sole Broadcast Source of Truly Global News & Journalism 5/5
Of the highest quality - given the format - and relatively un-biased!
Clear and concise – useful international perspective 5/5
By Seen a lot
It's useful for someone who typically with US newspapers to gain an international perspective, BBC stands at the head of the line for providing this perspective.
Transparent News 5/5
Thought Provoking Stories from Anywhere
One of the few reliable sources 5/5
If you want a good global perspective there really isn't an alternative
Best news app 5/5
Well written, concise, thorough, and more balanced in reporting US events than most US news sources.
By Ofcourse trump
This is another far left "news" propaganda source. The bias is too much to take.
App good, too much video 4/5
Application is good, easy to use, reliable.
Unfortunately too much of the content is only available in video format.
Easy to use--best source for news I have. 4/5
Really useful and dependable.
Current and Relevant 5/5
I like being able to adjust the frequency of topics that interest me. News is always up to date and objective.
BBC news 5/5
By Gus Joe
Seems like all news outlets in the US have an "agenda" of sorts. Some blatant and some not so much... but it is still there.
It is nice to be exposed to news that is more measured in presentation. Thanks BBC.

Buggy and biased. War mongered us into Syria even before a un probe.
