From great App to ugly and unusable

Have been reading BBC for years but recent update just made it unusable for me. The new interface is ugly; my topics selection is gone; hard to search through the topics. Definitely a step back.

Well, how can I say it politely….

While the previous version was in dire need of some bug-fixing and still missing some features (e.g. search), this new version removes most of what made BBC news my favourite app.

Gone is the ability to customize the news feed based on your interests. Now BBC decides what topics you should be interested in.

The new, more modern looks basically mean a lot of empty space and a lot more scrolling needed to glance through the headlines. It may not sound like a big deal, but it actually makes the user experience much poorer.

Similarly, the articles themselves look like they are more pictures, ads and empty space than actual informative text.

A large settings icon was making me hope for some customization option, but alas it just lets you know how much personal data they are trying to collect from you.

I appreciate the effort of trying to improve the app, but it feels like a step in the wrong direction. I hope it will get better one day.
