BBC News app reviews

  • It's the BBC - so of course it's good! 5/5

    By usataylors
    Love being able to keep abreast of global news no matter where I am. This app is so user friendly that you can quickly navigate through the headlines, dive deeper into areas of interest and I always find the BBC to be first with breaking news. Love it.
  • Biased 1/5

    By Te dark lord
    Extremely left wing and is bought by George Soros, there should be no state run media. Also they discriminate against whites in hiring, which was demonstrated by the "whites need not apply" message on job applications.
  • Keeps resetting to top of the page 2/5

    By Bazzerd
    The developer on the latest version got this screwed up. The he pages will bounce to the top for no reason. It's very annoying. I can't use the app much these days

  • Great Journalism, Intuitive App, Aggressive Ads 2/5

    By icelusx
    BBC is great, this App is great, but in the latest version the advertisements redirect you in the middle of reading to a website, WITHOUT CLICKING ANYTHING! Unacceptable.

  • Jeff Wright 5/5

    By Nilghtshift
    Best source for WORLD news that I have found! U.S. news rarely gives news other than North America. BBC seems totally unbiased and factual, despite what Trump says or tweets.

  • Can't do without the BBC 5/5

    By Craigtom
    I read a major US newspaper on line every day but the BBC gives me the immediacy and in depth reporting that I need to round out my knowledge of what's truly happening around the world. The BBC reports stories that never get covered by the US media. A rumor doesn't become fact until I see it on the BBC.
  • The best. 5/5

    By ktandmjc
    The BBC news reports are timely, fact filled, important, concise, and the least biased of any news and information sources available. Quite simply, it's the best.
  • Not what BBC use to be. 1/5

    By former bbc fan
    Biased, misleading titles and filled more with the opinion of its borderline tmz reporters, than with the facts of it few actual journalist.

    I live in the U.S. and turn to BBC both as a great source for international news and a more objective source for U.S. news.
  • Not what it used to be.. 1/5

    By Kaiser262000
    Used to be fair and unbiased... appears no longer, getting impossible to find balanced news. BBC sorry but you are right up there with CNN and foxnews.
  • Great App! 5/5

    By leg0817
    This app delivers all that is superb about the BBC! Well designed, frequently updated and offers global coverage of top stories in the U.K., Europe and the US. What I also appreciate is the extensive coverage of top stories from Africa and Asia! Smart commentary and an indispensable addition to the very domestically oriented US press. Love it!
  • Great app👍👍 5/5

    By theFOOZE
    I like.
  • Good 5/5

    By Anonymousrater
    I like reading about American politics on BBC, because they seem to be less biased than American news sources. They do lean somewhat left, but it it mild enough that it seems to be from the inherent bias of the writers, rather than deliberate twisting of the facts. The app works well. I would like to see more division of
  • CNN wannabe ?? 1/5

    By 65coupe

  • News without bias 5/5

    By A Marine
    Of the many news sources that I consult each day, BBC is my most trusted source.
  • More Reliable than News Outlets in the US 5/5

    By NeNeZay
    Long Live The Fourth Estate!!! Since saint ronny reagan abolished the Fairness Doctrine, US news media has become increasingly unreliable. That there's no enforcement of honest representation in reporting, media outlets in the US can say anything and present it as fact. This practice combined with the steady decline of K-12 education standards means that many Americans are unable to critically evaluate what they're being told--read: bombarded with--all day, every day by so-called news outlets. The combination of biased news and the inability of much of the populace to evaluate critically what's being said has led the US to today's unbelievable, incomprehensible, and increasingly volatile situation. Thank you BBC for being much more reliable than so many US news media outlets.
  • Narrative > Fact 1/5

    By Justicecomesforharambe
    If the BBC were any more blatantly left leaning, they would topple over into the Atlantic.

    Consistent accuracy and trustworthy reports
  • Rev. Stanton Whitney 5/5

    By Yentihew
    I've been turning to this news FIRST for a month. I like the original writing and, as already mentioned, the timeliness of the articles. To be honest, I don't think U.S. news services are as good as they once were.

    The BBC has very good coverage of world events in English.
