You can tick off a checklist as to types of news you want to read about e.g. politics, sport and even location such as Wales, Scotland etc. Very easy to read on Kindle. Thrilled with this app.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very Poor Performance 3 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase
When it works it is as good as the BBC News app on my Apple iPhone or Ipad, also my Windows Laptop. But it often does not update itself. It tells you that it is up to date but when compared with my other devices I can see that the news is often one or two days old so I just cannot trust what it is telling me!

This is excellent in that it is succinct in its presentation of the news.
It is helpful in that you can adjust the amount of news and the subjects you wish to receive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Seamless... 15 Jun 2014
By IntensiveCareNurse TOP 100 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
Allows seamless viewing of BBC News live on the Kindle, whilst viewing the regular site via a search engine is fiddly & keeps freezing on tbe Kindle platform...
It makes watching news easier and quicker, as just a touch of the app symbol takes you straight to the site.
It gives me all that I could possibly want from it.
