In case you’re wondering why the BBC has taken this long to come out with an app for the Android Market, the fact is that they had come out with one last month. However, that was exclusive only to the United Kingdom. Thankfully, they’re spreading the love to other countries, as well.
News on your Android handset
BBC has always been renowned for delivering the latest, accurate news as it happens. An app for Android is a good idea in keeping with the times and like most Android-based news apps, the BBC app is free and can be downloaded from the Android Market.
The screenshots show that the app looks quite decent in terms of the interface’s look and feel. Users have access to live BBC World Service Radio and can watch a video of a news story that they’ve checked. Users can personalize the homescreen by adding or removing sections of their choice and they can also choose to automatically update content in the background.
