    I am in California. I downloaded TheNews app from BlackBerry World. It is a Built for BlackBerry app. Global News gives Google, Yahoo and BBC news. They are fine. Google News, for example, automatically gives me the U.S. edition and one can select a different edition if desired. However, when I click on the Local News icon, it opens up a window with three choices for local news: Bangalore Live, TOI Bangalore and DNA Bangalore. There is no settings option that allows me to set my location to change these news sources. How can an app Built for BlackBerry only offer local news for India? Could it be I received a phone meant for the Indian market?

    Looks like the app is coded for India. I downloaded to test and I also get Indian news when I click on local news. I'm in Canada.

    It's the app.

    It contains 2 sections: one with the global news and other with the local news. No need to go to different links to get latest news. This app gives all the current news at one place.
    Poorly written description on BlackBerry World, but it's probably the case that the author is some chap from Bangalore.

    You mean you're not interested in local news from India? Weird.
