Stories from topics you add will appear in your personalised My News feed. Here you can order stories by topic or time, and use the Manage Topics screen to stay on top of the news of the day.

What's New

Version 4.9

Just like the world of news, sometimes we have a big story to tell you and sometimes it's lots of smaller ones. In this case, it's the smaller ones. So, here's all the news for today...

* You can now share videos from Videos of the Day and Stories
* We've made it quicker to access some feature content directly from Top Stories and your topics in My News
* We've fixed an issue with Videos of the Day on iPhone X, where the edges of the video was sometimes chopped off

Obtrusive advertising style

CPSZA

Really like this app and have done for years but I find its advertising style to be increasingly intrusive. Time consuming waits for adverts to play fully, or full page page ads have to be meticulously cancelled else one is rerouted to a website. I appreciate the role adverts play,but when they become irritating, irrelevant or intrusive both the app and the advertiser lose. I am now using the app less. If the advertising style improves I will gladly go back to 5 stars.

Global news

Rockkatz

Good selection of global news an appreciate the notifications I receive when a headline hits.

Change in video

Gandalfzaf

The latest version forces you to watch an ad without the option of skipping it. This ruins the videos available and seriously detracts from the experience. The point of a 1 or 2 minute news clip is to save time, now we waste time to get to the “short” news clip. Very silly!!
