The BBC News app has been completely redesigned with a fresh look and feel to bring you more content, greater personalisation and better overall performance. So you can get more of the news that matters to you.

Key features:
Top Stories brings you the latest, breaking news from our trusted global network of journalists.
My News is a newly introduced feature allowing you to personalise your news offering.
Add topics wherever you see the + icon for a quick route straight to the stories you care about.
Stories from topics you add will appear in your personalised My News feed. Here you can order stories by topic or time, and use the Manage Topics screen to stay on top of the news of the day.
You can also switch the My News by Topic screen to a more traditional carousel view from the Settings screen.

Find content fast
The app can suggest topics based on stories you’ve recently viewed and what’s in the news now.
And you can quickly find topics that interest you using the Topic Search. Choose from the familiar list of BBC News indexes such as Business, Technology, Entertainment and Health, or search for your own subjects of interest, whether they’re people, places, things or themes.

More of the news you care about
We now offer a fuller selection of stories from the newsroom, including:
- Most Read and Most Watched. Keep on top of popular stories across the BBC, regularly updated throughout the day
- Live BBC World Service Radio. Expertise and insight from our journalists available 24-hours a day and ready to listen to in the background as you browse
- Read the best journalism from BBC correspondents
- Access to our full range of video and audio

Other features:

- Viewing modes. See more stories per index by choosing ‘Compact layout’ from the Settings screen

Love the BBC
App is very good except when I try to stop it. It leaves its icon in the notification bar. I have to forcefully terminate the app to get rid of it.

New UI is slooooow
The old UI was fast, easy to navigate, and packed with news. The new one is shiny, filled with useless images and buttons and slow. Since I want to read the news instead of admiring the pictures it has missed the mark completely.
Katherine Smuts review Katherine Smuts
Bring back old version
Bit like pick up sticks. No fluidity in the layout. Needs to be more simplistic.
Daniel Butler review Daniel Butler
The app doesn't honor my startup settings; it always loads showing whatever article I was reading last time I closed it. Additionally I have to manually update the content constantly.
Barrie Moorcroft review Barrie Moorcroft
Was a lot better.
I don't like the new look. It is not reliable as before and some news items barely a sentence long. BBC app has fallen a long way from the top to bottom. CNN much better.
Denise Ho review Denise Ho
Good but
(Sep 16) What's up with the full screen ads!?! Downgrading to 3* // When the screen switches off, or if you switch out to another app, BBC losses your place in the article and you must scroll back down. This is particularly annoying of your screen sleeps as you're reading an article! Pls fix, thx!!
Linda McCullough review Linda McCullough

Only News which one can trust. Always unbiased news with detailed information
Daniel Dogan review Daniel Dogan
Great app but video doesn't play.
I actually don't mind the new update and enjoy the new look. However, when trying to view the videos in within the articles the spinning loading icon is on an endless loop regardless if I am on WiFi or mobile data and the video never actually plays.

Chris Merriman review Chris Merriman
Since UI change, crashes and empty stories
App looks more modern more, however I get a lot more stories that appear as empty unless you kill off the app entirely and reload it. Also occupational crashes.
Jack Beneke review Jack Beneke
As a retired person living in South Africa and all the rubbish in the local papers and TV I have great pleasure in following the BBC as my sole source for accurate NEWS. Your new app is really good well done chaps.
Steve Masson review Steve Masson
Videos still don't work.
Can't get any videos to work. Tap 'em and. . . . nothing. Latest Google Android, not a fork. Why is this still broken?
Hartmut Huber review Hartmut Huber
Slow and unreliable
BBC had a reliable and fast application. The new app does load much slower and is prone to crashes.
