Beeb Anywhere – problems with BBC RSS feeds

Some of the BBC’s news feeds are currently serving invalid XML which means some categories aren’t downloading.  For the ‘England’ category I’ve switched to using the full feed (as opposed to the mobile one) which has temporarily alleviated the problem but other full feeds suffer from the problem too.  I’ve contacted the BBC so we’ll see if they fix the problem soon.

Beeb Anywhere 1.6.1 is available to download from the Market now and contains the following fixes:

  • England category switched to use full RSS feed (mobile feed has problems but no guarantee full feed won’t have issues too.)
  • Ensure the small thumbnail image files are downloaded.
