    "BBC News read top news" voice command doesn't work. Can't listen to streaming news. I was looking for an app that would allow me to listen to BBC news while I'm getting ready in the morning.

    Very nice! Too bad there's no live tile update -- otherwise it would be a 5-star app!

    Just pictures and headlines, no actually stories

    Updates need to be more consistent, and the people behind the app need to stop copypasting the articles.
