Go-to news app 5/5
By Arthur Sonnet
My go-to news app, for ease & comprehensive coverage, & live coverage. It would be good not to refresh a category when I am many stories down & leave me back at the top.
Love this siite 5/5
By Serious about music
This is the only way to get real news in what's happening world wide. I've given up on the US sites.
Accurate news 5/5
Doesn't seem to be much of a bias to this news service.
By yrraH rednaxelA
I come here every day to see what is happening around the world. I very much appreciate the BBC's willingness to cover stories most other news outlets ignore. Well-written, clear and interesting. No alternative facts here. Thank you BBC.
Really love BBC's news app. I think it balances design with functionality, both sides of the spectrum in terms of news bias, and customizability with what is straightforward. Definitely would recommend it!
The world's radio station. Best news and in depth discussions. 5/5
Nothing like it anywhere else. Thank you, license payers!
Absolutely necessary 5/5

Excellent app 5/5

Wide scope of topics, increasingly biased view of news 3/5
By International News Hound
For me, the BBC has always been one of the standard bearers for information, good information, being presented to the reader or listener of news. When you have covered a story, in most cases, you have done it well. You have offered information and have done your best not to come to a conclusion on behalf of the reader.
However, you are increasingly showing a biased by stories you choose to cover and stories you choose not to cover and in how you cover them and how often you cover them. I understand that everyone has a worldview and that institutions, in general terms, carry a political leaning in the way they run their organizations. But I believe you're showing too much of your bias lately. You are joining many news organizations who are pushing the creation of news rather than reporting it. In some cases, your reporting matches gossip columns rather than legitimate news.
I offer these comments in the same way I would kindly try to point out to a well-dressed but possibly oblivious woman that her slip or underwear is showing. If the lady responds by making a quick adjustment to correct the problem then you know that the wardrobe anomaly wasn't done on purpose. But if she just turns and says, "yes, I know!", then you can conclude that she wants to flaunt it.
It is very important that you do your job right, especially you and especially in the turbulent world we are living in today. Please hold to a high standard of news reporting and not news creation. What you have reported and what you have said has really mattered to the world, until now, because you've kept a high standard. But in recent years, not so much. Please protect your news ethic and dignity. You are the BBC.
Quality of content declining 2/5
Great app, great coverage when it comes to big news, but they have to stop posting social media "news". It's awful. I know there are slow days but come on! I quit facebook years ago and I don't care what users on social media are up to. Please go back to regular journalism and I will reinstall this app.
I love all things BBC, however having BBC news on my phone is an extra special treat. Always there always unbiased news by real reporters.
Trusted news 5/5
From a trusted international source
My source for international news 5/5
I trust BBC
Trustworthy news 5/5
A news agency I can count on to report the news accurately.
Would heritage site? 5/5
App eclipses others because it's news foundations are so wide it is even able to offer a live BBC radio feed.
This is News done right! 5/5
By Shawn LeMond
Love this app this is far and away the most comprehensive and unbiased news
Decent app- but why pester about Bluetooth? 2/5
I like using the app but it is really annoying that every time I open it I have to answer a pop up telling me to enable Bluetooth. It has reduced my desire to use the app to only once in a while.
Notifications don't work 2/5
Even though I have notifications enabled on my iPhone for this specific app I have never received a single breaking news notification since installing this app over a week ago. This spoils an otherwise decent app.
BBC review 5/5
Excellent in every way.
Methinks 'tis the best!!
BBC news app keeps you on top of real news 5/5
Want to know who the Kardashians are dating? Watch local American news. Want to know what's going on in the world? Stick with BBC news.
My Source for News 4/5
By Aaron from Calexico
Wake up every morning and catch up on the world's happenings with this app. Great articles, in depth and non biased.
BBC NEWS 4/5
A consistent news media. Congratulations
A very good app with extremely good content 5/5
Excellent national, regional and global content, easily customizable. I live in the United States, and I find it refreshing to see US stories reported with a global perspective. And of course, excellent international coverage.
One shortcoming 4/5
By Al Kelson
I wish there were more audio versions of the many fine pieces only in text form.
Excellent news app 5/5
Very happy to have this app. Provides timely and accurate political info plus human interest and science stories.
A year ago... problems .. now 5 stars TY 5/5
BBC rocks 4/5
Basically, they have the most unbiased and accurate reporting over any American news source.
Love it 5/5
Too busy reading article to write review
Balanced, comprehensive coverage 5/5
I wish I could get BBC News and just it on TV, without having to subscribe to a bundle.
By Largo sita
Faster and exactly at time the News is happening
Love BBC 5/5
By FLO ANN
Now I see why my pastor in church says he like BBC news.
A welcome out of USA perspective 5/5
Amid the surreal times we find ourselves in, it is tempting to limit our news sources to those that represent our personal perspective. US sources, even those considered thoughtful & intelligent are caught up in the tainting of all US sources in reaction to Mr. Trump. Hence resort to a reputable international source such as the BBC is a good reality check.
Was better 4/5
Before updates, it was possible to view in landscape. That was better. I also preferred the old landscape way of viewing what was available listed by subject genre. I also think it shows bias against Trump, although it's hard not to. It is still the first place I look for news.
reliably discerning news 5/5
By Jim in King
The BBC is number one of two of my go to sources for news from throughout the world. They succeed where most others fail, by refraining from being used as a political prop, and by reporting carefully measured news accounts. Well done, you!
Good tofi d news about the rest of the world.
Globally important 5/5
By Friendly alert
The BBC is a treasure for Britain and a great British contribution to the world fine reporting and better global coverage than any other counterpart.
Daily companion 5/5
I enjoy the calm, reasoned presentation and the broader view of the world.
Great national news with amazing updates to at the moment situations
All I need to know 5/5
Concise reporting. Journalism not emotionalism.
Reliable World News Spurce 5/5
BBC News and Reuters are two of my favorite news sources. BBC News provides accurate reliable news coverage of world events along with sufficient background and analysis to keep me well informed in today's complex living. It also meets my need for brevity when necessary while permitting greater depth of information when I have the time.
Great App 5/5
By MustangMan S-Code
BBC is my choice for news. I find out more about home (U.S.) than US news apps. How cool is that? And they give better international news. Update: still my favorite. More in depth than other apps. And more news. Have not read much of anything in Myanmar/Burma except here.
Most Reliable News Source On Earth, Period 5/5
In this time of diminishing quality (and quantity) of US-based news organizations,
BBC News remains the place to go for serious journalism. No false equivalency here. This is News.
Best News App 5/5
By Sprinkler Pimp
This is the best news App I have seen. Being in the U.S. our news is 24/7 political biased news for the last 18 months - even longer. CNN - MSNBC - FOX - all of them have lost the skill of covering news and especially world news. BBC is the best source to keep up to date on what is going on in the world. Thank You. Delete all other apps - you will feel better and be more informed.
#1 Source for Objective News 5/5
I go to BBC News for Objective News without biased opinions from so-called pundits.
#FakeNews that Sets Example for American Mass Media 5/5
The app seems to function as expected. BBC is a refreshing alternative to America's bullocks news outlets.
Facts Rule 5/5
No fake news here! The place to go for the accurate reports. Great coverage, broad range of topics
