BBC News Reader

Copyright (c) 2011, 2012, Digital Lizard (Oscar Key, Thomas Boby)

Licensed under the BSD License. See LICENSE.

BBC News Reader does just that, it reads the BBC rss feeds and retrieves the associated articles and images and places them in a nice gui for browsing on Android based phones.

It is currently tested on Android versions:

  • 2.3
  • 4.0
  • 4.2

However, it should work on any version > 2.2. Old versions of the app will support down to 1.6.

It supports all sizes of phone screens. There is a tablet view, but this has more limited functionality (at the moment).

We use several other projects to help us:

We are very grateful for the hard work put into these projects which make things so much easier for us.

This app dates before the release of the official new app and was designed to try and improve the news reading experience on Android phones.
