Access BBC news and sport on your Nokia handset
BBC Mobile Review
by on February 21, 2011
The BBC has recently moved into mobile apps with the same gusto it has for chucking news and sport news online. And that means that not only do we get mobile apps for the iPhone and Android, but we also get apps for Nokia handsets too.
As well as the News and Sport apps, there’s this – a generic BBC Mobile app. We had high hopes for it – would it combine news, weather, sport plus TV and radio in an effective and readable way?
It kind of does. Except that the app itself is one of a growing band of apps on the Nokia Ovi Store that are effectively links to web pages. You might think this fine, but we think it’s a poor show. If you’re going to make a widget or an app that’s basically just a link to the web, then say so.
The bonus is that the BBC’s mobile web presence is a superb portal for information on your Nokia – it loads quickly and puts a wealth of information at your fingertips. It’s really well presented and all the stories have great, readable fonts for easy reading on your mobile.
