The most un impartial news company BBC are the most un impartial news outlet in the UK, Chris Smith is the worst news reader ever. They are constantly talking about ISIS, bombs going off, black/dark skinned people who have been put in jail because of offences they have committed. They NEVER mention how messed up the Euro is, or the ridiculous laws the tories bring in, where is the TTIP/TTP ?!?!?! How come we never hear about this but other news outlets like RT and The Guardian report on, if you want real news download the RT & guardian app.

Dumbed down The user interface is good, much much better than the BBC news app. It's a shame the content is biased to celeb and novelty items. Many 16 to 24 year olds are interested in UK and world news and current affairs.

Chris Lycett

Good design, Limited content Good design , well thought out, but the content is a bit limited

matthew james

Looks really good About time radio 1 released this app and so far looks pretty good to use and not just boring news. hopefully lots of downloads to come for it

Charlie Revett

Awesome! Great content and design.

David Blooman

Great app Really simple to use, great at keeping up with entertainment and music news

akshat singh

Content is good but the design is not great! I like the news stories and content but it lacks good and intuitive design! A touch of material design will take this app to a new level!

James Tate

Why? Nope, sorry - I just can't see the point. Main BBC news app is all you need.

Martin Ashby

Good app Nice to read with, and responsive so pleasant to use. I prefer the content of the main BBC news app however.

Ben Bristow

Nicely designed app. Works well and looks great. Content is getting better too.

Jenny Mulholland

Looks cool, covers a wide range of topics, easy to use.

scott harper

Like it Simple and easy to use

Canan Nuri

the app is user friendly and has a sleek feel, but the content is boring and seems to be based on celebs or lifestyle pieces. for now the main bbc news app is still the best go-to for bitesize news.

matthew sharkey

Where's the search?

Alan Young

"Phased out" Newsbeat is yet another BBC service aimed at younger adults being axed. Thanks BBC, what do I pay my license fee for?!

Elijah Stone

It doesn't even download! I tried to download the app but it won't even install. Why!

Finn Mole

Loving this app, it has a nice tidy design, but a bit more content would be nice.
