    The live stream is great. Now just for a live tile.

    Just what I've been looking for. This app had good quality news articles, well written and informative. How refreshing to have an original app. I'm going to be using this as my main news source now. BBC, take note, this is how to do it!

    Excellent app from a decent news network. However, the pictures on the live tile do not update - you get stuck with the same ones that were current when you first add the live tile to your start screen. One other minor issue is that occasionally the wrong video plays for an article. There are also a good few grammatical and punctuation errors in articles. Other than that, fantastic app - thanks!
