    Buffering is a joke. Stutters after about 2 min of playback and I'm on a quad core Nokia, god only knows how rubbish it is on others. The app worked fine before. Was there no testing of the update done? Sort it out

    Very jumpy and stuttery. Not even 10 minutes into programs and I have to abandon. I don't know of anyone else having issues on other devices.

    Looks like a phone gap app. Graphics/icons are blurred. Doesn't follow windows phone design. No download support and no hd support. A very poor effort bbc when the IOS app is so good. Why cant the BBC take windows phone seriously.

    Buffering makes it unusabke. Wish there was some way to downgrade it to a previous version.
