  • BBC News App 4/5

    By Ppilot777
    Very informative regarding news from all around the world!
  • Slowly getting the ideological propaganda under control 4/5

    By EvoSkeptic
    The BBC seems to recovering from Trump derangement syndrome and is returning to its strength of provocative (but objective) reporting. Let's see if it can reclaim its position as the world's preeminent source for news.
  • Very informative in all important new! 5/5

    By queenbea8
    Excellent news deliveries
  • In one word: gratitude 5/5

    By enter.another
    I am grateful that this app exists, and that there is an organization, system and politics behind it that support and sponsor this. The BBC app offers not only news, but quality writing and culture. May it continue to be the ambassador of excellence it is.
  • Honest 5/5

    By Nikolai97
    The BBC gives things to you straight, it's more reliable than most of the other news sources. It informs people about anyone and everything happening in this world that is prevalent. The BBC is not just fixated on one particular country's happenings.
  • Preferred news app 5/5

    By carrievo
    Organized and clear. Nice counterpoint to American news perspectives
  • Very useful 4/5

    By rt2030
    This app is very useful for news updates.
  • Best news source 5/5

    By PDenver
    Go-to site for news. More credible than any US-based "news" organization.
  • Great news reader app! 5/5

    By EdOfTheMountain
    Refreshing change from repetitious narrow news on most sites in my country
  • Good job BBC *one kink 5/5

    By Yank_acrossthepond
    This app provides good information and news without all gossip and bias bs of American outlets. It's also well laid out and the articles are informative but concise, BBC makes the news easy to navigate. The videos are bad though, don't load or the picture is low res. Overall though a great news source! I recommend it to friends who want to keep up!
  • Potential 2/5

    By McDonalds stock on the rise!
    BBC is where I go when I want to get from American news. My issue is that it leans way left. I just want an honest story, not something subjective.
  • Great articles 4/5

    By sillyputty!!!
    A few hiccups with the app closing down all of a sudden but all those were solved with an update. I love the global perspective!
  • Couldn't be better 5/5

    By Sir Holzy II
  • Read BBC app every day 4/5

    By Dagdon
    I love this app and the world-wide coverage. Well-written articles. The only annoying thing is that when you read an article and close, you are taken back to the top and gave to scroll down to find where you left off.
  • BBC News 4/5

    By Agonidzo777
    I enjoy BBC because it appears to be more truthful than most of the other USA fake news. Give us truth or shut up. Let the celebrities live their lives in private. I do not want or need to see or hear about Taylor Swift. I am not a teen.

  • Comprehensive, Unbiased News 5/5

    By Señor Grappa
    It's not necessary to filter thru BBC news to separate the facts from biased writing. This is news as it should be. News that is trustworthy. US news outlets report news with biased opinions; that is not good, traditional journalism. Thank you, BBC, for your news coverage.
  • The only way to know what goes on in the world! 5/5

    By Pegdk

    By DeVoiD
    It's nice the BBC has a news app. I used to like how impartial the BBC was with its news, and it looks like they still are. So it's good that they did this app. It is quite user friendly too. Thanks for the app.

  • Better International Perspective 4/5

    By 1DXWannabe
    I love the fact that BBC gives me a better prospective of what is happening than the major networks in the U.S. Sometimes I feel as is we ignore what is happening in other countries, even though those events may impact the U.S. economy.

  • Wonderful 5/5

    By rokinrev
    Many years ago, in the days pre-internet and news glut, I found the BBC News service to be much less opinionated and thorough than our news. That was 40 years ago and it's still one of my favorites

  • As is should be 4/5

    By pitmonk
    Aside from the occasional "tabloid" article, which I am not sure why it's there, you get stories that are relevant and truly allow you to stay abreast of what going on in the world.

  • I hate the advertisement 2/5

    By Knollibe
    Don't even try to watch a video, you will be forced to view and advertisement before each short video. Most video in 1-2 min range then another ad! I will delete.

    By Tharwo

  • Auto-play audio bad bad bad 3/5

    By chiefgeek157
    This has been my go-to news app for several years. Just today the app began playing audio from a story automatically without clicking on anything. I have no idea which story it was, and worst of all the audio did not stop when I pressed Home. I had to kill the app the stop the mystery audio. I hope that gets fixed soon.
