‘lo and behold, another review!
Hey guys, just wanted to go over these two widgets that I believe, are useful on a daily basis. If you like the news (BBC to be exact) and knowing what the local / 5 day predicted forecast is just so you don’t wear jeans on a boiling day just because the morning is a bit chilly, you might want to read on a bit more.
Let’s start off with the BBC widget shall we? It was free, it is free and hopefully it will stay free. Sure there is the AP (Associated Press) widget out, though seeing as how that’s a stock app, there’s nothing much to go over on that one. Here, we see the main screen with the two widgets I’ll be going over, seeing as how we’re talking about the BBC one, I’ll just keep on with that for the time being. As you can see, you can choose either for the regular news, or if you like sports you can choose that respectively! Personally, I’m not much of a fan so I’d have liked it if they could let you snip off either the News or Sport tabs to add to unused screen estate for another widget not to have to be on another screen but anyway, really that’s the only bad thing I can say about this I suppose.
Putting aside my whimsical dreams, let’s get down to the meat of the app, as you can see, there are the latest pieces of news shown on the page at hand with 5 buttons to choose from:
Top right: ‘home’ button will take you to the BBC’s main mobile site so you can see the other headlines there if you wish.
Refresh: As one may guess, this re-loads the widget to pull the data and see for any updates.
Categories: Looking for something specific? Tap there and choose what you want! The stories may not be the latest but hey, at least you’ll be informed of what section you choose to get rid of the stuff you don’t want to see.
