BBC News for Android now available for all

BBC News for Android now available for all

In May BBC launched its official BBC News Android application, but unfortunately it was only available in the UK after its debut. Now Android users worldwide can download and install the application from the Android Market. We typically used to install third-party BBC News apps, but the official one blows those out of the water. Top stories are side-scrollable with beautiful headline thumbnails, and you can easily quickly listen to the World News Bulletin, the Live BBC World Service, or view a quick 1-minute global news summary — all from the home screen. There’s also an option to be notified of breaking news stories. If you’re a news fiend, this app is a must have.
