Many moons ago (read: back in February), the BBC released a sport app for people who are in to that sort of thing. People rejoiced, birds sang, rainbows formed, yadda yadda, yadda... then the whole world realized the app was only for UK residents. Everything went dark. Storms brewed across nations, wars broke out, and hate consumed the very souls of those affected by the tragedy. It was the beginning of the end.
A couple of weeks ago the BBC released its first app designed specifically for Android phones, but there was one problem - it was for residents of the UK only. Fortunately, though, an app was released this morning that caters to the rest of the world.
It looks and functions just like its UK counterpart, offering a nice, clean UI. You can easily share stories through various social mediums, email, and SMS, listen to BBC World Service radio live, watch videos, and personalize your home screen so you get only the news that your interested in as soon as you launch the app.
