  • Great App 5/5

    By Natasza3
    I never notice any advertisements (like what all the other people complaining about) maybe I'm just super focused on the news articles. One thing that would be great, is if they had more variety of news articles (like, once you're finished reading one article it doesn't keep popping up in a different section.) Other than that, great news app.

  • Annoying adverts 2/5

    By ayrlyn33
    Love to read the news, but recent changes to the adverts have become almost intolerable. The pop up add that block the whole story, the animated ads. Hate them. Please remove these!!!!

    By PainedUser
    Articles are worth reading--more depth than others.

    By G.K.F.R
    I think it's great app
  • Great source for news 5/5

    By Emilly Orr
    As others have mentioned, the latest update added advertisments. But for me, at least, they've been unobtrusive and the app is still very worthwhile. I deeply value the BBC news techs for making it.
  • Excellent Journalism - Irritating Ads 5/5

    By 450sel6.9geek
    Excellent concise journalism with minimal editorialising. Keep the ads to minimal banners, and stay away from splash pages that are a pain to navigate around.
  • A good news app for sure. 5/5

    By Happy_Hardcore_Fan
    BBC's news app is a wonderful way to stay connected to the news of the world. The newest addition to the world news podcast is also quite helpful in keeping me informed of the latest breaking news around the world.
  • Change this back... 1/5

    By Michrene'e
    I don't like this. The old way was more informative. I can't keep up with this new format. Change it back.
  • Annoying ads 2/5

    By チリライム
    Great news app, but the full screen ads are annoying. Was better before
  • BBC News Is One Of The Best! 5/5

    By TravPerk
    The BBC News app is amazing!! The stories are insightful, and are without any bias! I live in California, but the BBC is one of my most trusted news sources, along with The Guardian, The Independent, The Wall Street Journal, The Telegraph, The Washington Post, and of course The New York Times!! The app works beautifully, the ads don't bother me, and I love the layout!! Keep up the good work!!
  • Wider View 5/5

    By Holodeck 3
    Being in USA news isolation, it's nice to get at least some other news of what's going on in the world.
  • 5 Star 5/5

    By Three-gamer
    Reliable, informative, global, and researched. Just the way news should be.
  • Stable, but... 3/5

    By Brain Devil
    Why does it jump to the top of the page when I'm reading a long article?
  • One American's opinion 5/5

    By Finch Lover
    When I want to hear the real news, I watch the BBC News. I watch a different side of news that is going on in this world. This is the real news that we do not have anymore in the US. We have such biased views on all of our networks. Reporters think they have to tell us what to think and what to do because they know best. Proof is our last election. This election shocked everyone. Thank you very much for your app. I hope more people in the US will start watching your news.
  • Decent and unbiased 5/5

    By luketheawful
    The app could use better video handling.
  • Love it! 5/5

    By KarlB12345
    I am a news junkie with a dozen of the most trustworthy news outlets on my iPhone. I rank BBC at or near the top of that list for use and trust.
  • It works well 5/5

    By Walker481199
    It works well. Good mix of news. Well done.
  • Well Designed 5/5

    By Kalananda
    A good layout brings a lot of well formatted information with easy navigation.
  • Was so good but now politically driven like a leftist propaganda 1/5

    By Sunil Georgia
    Have used this for 2 years and Loved it but then elections happened and not sure why it's so left driven, instead of being objective like before! Seems to be promoting the addenda that's not fair and certainly driven by a leftist agenda instead of just information and new that I thought it was!!! DISAPPOINTED
  • Factual, Unbiased News for over 100 Years 5/5

    By shawk001
    Love the view from Britain. Especially the lack of hysteria!
  • Thx a bunch 5/5

    By Redwingjoe
    I enjoy the variety of news and manner which it's presented Happy news is great to see☺️
  • Why BBC news is my first place to get news 5/5

    By Androc105
    BBC news app lets me set up favorites easily based on my interests and with focused articles as well as the constantly available live audio stream I learn about what's happening in the world faster than any other news source I have used.
  • BBC News 5/5

    By 1PlainKim
    Still gives both sides. The only one I know of that does. Lets you decide what is right, which is what news should do !!!
  • Great! 5/5

    By Pastulio (iPhone 6)
    I love it!
  • It's justified! 4/5

    By ed45navarro
    The ads pay for those correspondents all over the world with some risking life and limb just to bring the latest. For me BBC is second to none in world news genre.
  • Good App, but a sad this great institution has lost its conservative foundation 3/5

    By BLT41567
    Have read the BBC since the late 70's. It was once relatively conservative and accurate source of news. Today it relentlessly conforms to political correctness and aggressively pursues a very biased agenda that has and will continue to be very destructive for all who subscribe to the liberal group think so ingrained in our institutions of learning and media outlets.
  • BBC 5/5

    By \|/0\|/
    If it's banned at the White House it must be doing something right
  • Fun topics 5/5

    By ljpdwp
    Like the topics and Love the video clip highlight stories
  • The BEST---EVER---that's THE BBC! 5/5

    By Will Rappold
    I started listening to THE BBC WORLD SERVICE, back in the 1960s. Awesome then, and throughout the years. LORD TONY HALL, should be DOUBLE KNIGHTED for bringing THE CORPORATION into the 21st Century. THAT I KNOW WHO HE IS SPEAKS VOLUMES, CAN YOU NAME THE HEAD OF A US BROADCASTING COMPANY? Under Lord Hall, the BBC has like a footprint as big as T-REX! And, it's ALL GOOD! May your message remain clear! May you continue to report the news in an interesting and believable format. May you all stay happy! I appreciate you all tremendously. And, BBC-AMERICA, you all my go to source for news on my own country!
