Can anyone suggest a good news reader for the BBC? The app by Lawrence Gripper is no more obviously so looking for a replacement. I've tried Fuse and Collector but both have issues that make them unusable for me. Also tried nextgen reader but that requires a feedly or google account which I don't have. Any other suggestions? Thanks.

Thanks for the suggestions. I already use Weave but it doesn't pull down images from the BBC and says it can't make a live tile with less than 2 images. I also tried Paper Boy but that is very slow when it opens up so makes it frustrating to use.

Bing News? BBC News is a source - its only Top Stories from the feed, and not really any Live Tile support - but you can pin a source tile.

Not a fan at all, for the BBC it just sends you to the website, something I could do manually. And the sub live tiles don't update, pretty bad IMO.

I agree, his BBC news app was on my phones since release on WP7, real shame the BBC had to be gits about it.

Im in the same boat. Used the old one on WP7 and just updated to WP8 so obviously lost it. The same guys has another app, Paperboy, but its rubbish in comparison... Any suggestions welcome!
