We recently interviewed the developer behind the BBC News Mobile app, Lawrence Gripper, and he went into detail about how he came about crafting the app along with what he thought of the development process on the Windows Phone platform. He's been a busy bee with getting the app up to scratch with the upcoming Mango update.

In the video above, you can see Lawrence giving us a run through of some new features that have been added into the app. These include:

  • Double Sided Live Tiles
  • Pin individual feeds to home screen
  • Background service meaning improved live tile and breaking news notifications
  • Background caching if wifi is available to speed up the app
