5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant platform for news on Kindle Fire HD
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
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 Well organised and easy to use., 11 Jun. 2013

This review is from: BBC News (App)
I prefer this to reading the paper! All the items are listed as icons within categories such as UK, World, Science, Entertainment, Sport etc. so that it's easy to pick out what you want to read. Some of the items include video clips.
Only works in portrait mode (not that it's a problem) but you can switch to landscape for the videos.
