Think this is very nearly there, if you see anything that you don’t like/is a bug/shouldn’t happen let me know! Looking to publish in the next couple of days.
- Voice. I made it chatty – say “BBC News read top news” and it will.
- Settings page failed to save – Fixed – Thanks @mrlacey
- NEW – Settings page font size setting @mrlacey
- Live tile update issue – Fixed – Meee
- NEW – livetile text wrapping issue thanks Mark Osborn & Jay bennett
- NEW – offline run crash thanks Jay bennett
- Also thanks to Mark Osborn and Ed Harrison for their feedback
I plan to get most of these features back in the app, I’d really appreciate your help in prioritising.
- NEXT RELEASE – Offline reading mode
- DONE – “Next story” button when reading story (first on my hit list)
- DONE – Share story
- NEXT RELEASE – Secondary live tiles for sections
- DONE – Icons, when static, are defaults
- DONE – No Welcome experience. User must use app bar to access settings & sections to setup live tiles, lockscreen and select feeds.
- STAYING – Wide livetile contains full string date, this is just to help debug
- TESTED – Suspend behaviour is untested.
- STILL FORGOTTEN – Lots I’ve forgotten

This version is now telling me the beta has expired.
yeh, the release verion is now in the store
Great update! Absolutely love the new version. Only thing that is missing for me is the very small live tile. Do you plan on having this update with the latest news too? Minor thing but fantastic app and you really show up the big companies!!!
I’ll look at this for future releases, my worry is that its too small to get much on!
Your latest update to the marketplace is the old version that has overwritten the all new update that appeared the day before!
Thanks, I’ve removes the v4 update due to a bug. It should be back soon.
Would that be the live tile? As i had to unpin and repin to get new tile,
I lost the wide live tile. Re-pin and re-install did not help. Any idea how to fix that?
update is back again, should sort this
My only issue is that the live tile is blurry and has random text at the bottom right
Hi, love this app, however I and a thousand others would be extremely grateful if you could please PRIORITISE OFFLINE ACCESS. This feature is the feature which made this app not only entertaining and informative but actually useful, and the must have news app for all wp8 disciples 🙂
Just finished it last night, going to test on the tube today!
Hi! That’s great news, thanks for keeping us updated, it’s really appreciated!
I hope the testing goes well, I’m looking forward to downloading the next update 😃
Great app, but the update seems to have removed the breaking news feature and stories in the live tile. Is this something you are planning to sort out?
