BBC News Mobile app issues currently being looked into, fix on the way

Lawrence Gripper, the developer behind the free BBC News Mobile app, has published an article on his blog detailing issues with the app that result in the inability to read any articles pulled from the news source. Gripper has confirmed the problem and will be submitting an update this evening, which should be published within the next few days / early next week.

"I'm going to look to publish a fixed version this evening and hopefully it will get through the certification process in the next few days. In the meant time please be patient and hopefully the app will be back up and running again soon."

Just a heads up should you be experiencing said problem. In the meantime, you can read all the latest news on the BBC News mobile site beta, which sports a usable Metro look.

  • Its one of the best apps out there
  • Agreed!  Great, professional grade app and free!  I was at a loss over what to do during the "tunnel portion" of my light rail commute into Portland, Oregon, when I realized that my offline BBC News reader wouldn't work.  Glad to hear the fix will be made shortly.
  • The whole BBC mobile online site changed yesterday so not suprised this app broke.
