The BBC’s News app has been recently given a major overhaul with the goal of offering a more “personalised” service and it was released only on iOS and Android platforms. During the launch of this new app, BBC specifically mentioned that there is no plan at present for a version for Windows Phone devices. Yesterday, BBC discussed about the feedback they received from the community following the app launch. In the blog post, they highlighted that there have been a lot of comments and questions asking them why they haven’t released a Windows version of the app. BBC has now responded that they will discuss with Microsoft on creating universal app based on Windows 10 targeting many device types.
Following the announcements of Windows 10 last week we will discuss with Microsoft the new cross device app opportunities that are now available.
