The BBC News Android App is a Slick News Viewer

The BBC News Android App has been available to users in the U.K. for a while. Now it is available to everyone else too. The app is optimized for use on Android tablets running Android 3.0 and higher.

I installed the app on my Samsung Galaxy Tab and tried it out this morning. A couple of things that I really like about the app are the smooth, quick-loading interface and the option to customize the news channels that appear on your home screen. I also like that you can listen to the BBC News programs while simultaneously browsing and reading other news stories. The one thing that the app does appear to be lacking is a search function. I was trying to find the BBC’s In Pictures features on app and the only way that I could do it was by browsing through the World News section.

Here is the BBC’s promo video for their free Android App.

H/T to Androinica.
