Following on from the BBC iPlayer app launched on Android a few months ago, the Beeb has today released an official BBC News application for users of Android 1.6 and above in the UK. The app displays BBC News stories from various categories in a tiled arrangement similar to the iPlayer app, and allows users to scroll left and right through each category to see more stories, just like popular news reader Pulse. There's also the option to add and remove categories depending on your interests, and watch live broadcasts from the BBC News Channel.
Join us after the break for the Market link and QR code. The BBC News app is available for free, but right now is restricted to UK users only.
