News app installations and notifications

The request was partially successful.

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, I would like to request the following pieces of information regarding the BBC's news app for iOS and Android.

1. How many active installations does the news app have on iOS and Android? I am happy for this to be on either an users or devices basis.
2. How many of those users or devices receive push notifications from the app?
3. How many times has the BBC sent push notifications via the app for each of the past three years? For the avoidance of doubt, for example, a notification announcing the death of a celebrity should count as one. Announcing a court decision would count as a second, etc...
4. Could I have a copy of any rules/guidance on the selection of which stories merit the sending of a push notification?

Yours faithfully,

Frank Brown
