This app is fantastic, many people have supported this app since launch (over half a million people). Lawrence has spent loads of time on it.

The BBC needs to either keep this app, or create their own and publish it before they remove apps from the store.

Please spread the word with this petition and #BringBBCToWP on twitter.

      It is important for people to have access to news provided by BBC and when BBC doesn't have any official Windows app,phone having app made available by Lawrence is great publicity for BBC and BBC should encourage and not discourage as there is no ulterior motive here.

      The BBC needs to be impartial, and developing only for the top two mobile OS' is not impartial!

      It's the best news app for Win 8, and it promotes the BBC.

      Windows Phone needs a decent BBC News app and Lawrence Gripper's one is fantastic. It's a real shame that he appears to have been bullied into removing it from the Windows Phone Store.
