    Can anyone recommend a good stable news app specifically for use in the UK? I've updated the BBC news app recently and it's now unusable various crashes and hangs alot. I miss having the sky news app (ex iphone user). Any advice?

    I have also noticed the problem with the bbc app. I'm not on 10.3.1 yet so that might be part of the problem.
    The bbc app enables flash on the BlackBerry browser but with flash enabled the BlackBerry browser now crashes on any bbc news page with an embedded news video!

    The answer is to disable flash in the browser and then open bbc web site from the browser without using the app. All the app does is open the browser with flash enabled so you won't notice any difference.

    Now if you want a link on the home screen there's an app in bbw called 'easy home' which you'd normally have to pay for but which is currently free you should try it. I've used it to create a shortcut to

    Feed Minder.
    It's native, it's headless, it's integrated into the system and you can create filters for rss feeds and keywords so you will be notified in the hub when you get news with interesting articles.


    You can take the rss feeds directly from your browser into the app to get all the news you want.
