Outstanding app ! 1st class informations ressources . Joel Sallent Rennes France

Excellente application

L application est très bien faite et le contenu interessant.


Très bien complet

No improvement

The application still bugs for more than 24 hours on the same page: check your internet connection. Flips back to beginning of scroll through before I can read the headlines. BBC, you have a good reputation but a rubbish application. Please do something about it, Im not so keen on Reuters but at least its reliable.

Très bonne application
