    Good-looking app but basically unusable due to constant buffering, even on broadband WiFi. Many programmes will not load.

    If I could rate this 0 stars, I freakin would. It's ****. I used to be able to watch stuff but after the stupid update, I can't watch anything. The videos buffer and don't even start. This is the same for stuff like ITV iplayer and 4oD. I'm really disappointed with this bad service.

    Perfect a great app, really excellent. Look forward to new iPlayer Radio when it comes out, in the meantime there is always the vey good TuneIn Radio player for those making disparaging comments about Radio having been taken out of iPlayer. Thanks BBC / app developer.
