The app for one of the largest worldwide news providers hit the Windows Phone 8 market today. With this app you can stay up to the minute with news around the world through their all inclusive radio, television and other sources of media and news. BBC has long been one of the most respected and honest sources of news and is preferred in many countries. The iPlayer for the BBC News is the app which you should get if you care about getting accurate, minute by minute news updates.
One of the best features of the app is the background play for the radio shows. You can stream and play unlimited amounts of media through your cell reception or over WiFi. You can play these in the background of whatever else you’re doing to constantly have the news running while you are doing anything on the go. With constant access to all of your favorite shows and episodes from the previous 7 days there is more than anyone could possibly go through.
The app itself is set up beautifully and has a great great user interface. The app runs very well, responds to the touches, swipes and everything else completely naturally and allows for perfect customization while keeping in line with allowing the app itself to shine through. You can even break down the media available by category so you can only hear what you want when you want it whether it’s sports, world news, or humor.
Since this was just now released that only means there will be updates and further development down the road to make this app even better, run even smoother, and allow for even more content as time goes on. If you have any care about what goes on in the world, and you have a Windows 8 device, go get the iPlayer for BBC News now and you won’t regret it.
