    By John2025

  • The very best 5/5

    By Iqrich
    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: Content ★★★★★ Navigation ★☆☆☆☆ 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

  • BBC news 4/5

    By DJD889
    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

    By BigAnk
    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

    By Koa808

    By aldenhays
    BBC News provides a credible second view of world news to Americans as well as the world.

  • World News 5/5

    By roneice
    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

  • Great content, free on iPhone 5/5

    By Meeeeeeyeeeee12345
    I've always enjoyed the sun, and it's great to be able to read it for free on my iPhone.
  • Ok 4/5

    By TN787
    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.
  • Lifeline 5/5

    By ELspethCL
    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

    By Figgman
    I listen during the night on WNYC in New York, love it!!!
  • My 'go-to' news outlet 5/5

    By Tired2011
    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

  • Best World Wide Content 5/5

    By 3591crik
    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.

    By Drummitis
    Comprehensive and factual. In this day and age, need one say more?
  • Great App 5/5

  • 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

    By Rainman105
    Best news source out there. The news sources in America have degenerated into little more than political propaganda. Thanks BBC.
  • News 5/5

    By buffalobakress
    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.

  • Bill's Review 5/5

    By PhilosophyBill
    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.
  • News 4/5

    The BBC is good. Better than the USA news. But if you want real news watch RT news.

    By timothy0515
    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

    By lendahand
    Thought Provoking Stories from Anywhere

  • Best news app 5/5

    By Lansdark
    Well written, concise, thorough, and more balanced in reporting US events than most US news sources.
  • Fakenews! 1/5

    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

    By kevink707
    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

    By Rpm17!
    Really useful and dependable.
  • Current and Relevant 5/5

    By StraightChillin'
    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.
  • Terrible 1/5

    By To the guy below me,,
    Buggy and biased. War mongered us into Syria even before a un probe.
