Yes there has been updates for Android and iOS that in fact were deemed has been given a ‘major overhaul’ with the goal of offering a more “personalised” service. During the launch of this new News app, BBC specifically mentioned that there is no plan at present for a version for Windows Phone devices.
Yesterday, the BBC discussed 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.
In fact the BBC said they wasn’t going to anything about Windows 8+. I was one among many, that complained about it and how they were going to create an app for Amazon Fire!
The BBC has now responded that they will discuss with Microsoft on creating universal app based on Windows 10 targeting many device types.
The BBC could well update all their apps to Windows 10, as this would make sense.
