BBC News Review
by on July 25, 2010
At least the UK can be proud of one thing – no, not being the number one hotspot in Europe for bike crime – the good old BBC.
For just over £10 a month we get access to a plethora of TV, radio and online content, which in unrivalled on a world level.
The BBC News, while having it critics, is legally mandated to be impartial and delivers a professional level news covered. Something certain commercial outlets seem to actively avoid.
So you can get your fix of BBC News while on the move we have the obviously named BBC News app, we’re sure there’s probably a legal issue there. At its basic level this delivers – very quickly – a phone optimised version of the BBC News website and that’s almost all it does.
There is an offline mode but it only works if you’ve already browsed to the section in question of which covers all the BBC New’s standard sections. If a true offline/download feature was added we’d feel far happier to recommend this, but as it stands it is limited.
