    It has all my Favourite shows but the thing is that it freezes over and over again also the buffering is terrible I'm watching a half hour video and so far the buffering has turned my video from 30 minutes to 1h 13 mins

    Rubbish, will not run programs, only view menus. A total waste of space.

    The old app was fine. Watching anything on bbc iplayer on your phone is the worst viewing experience you'll ever experience. It staggers stopping and starting constantly. Its RUBBISH. BBC should be ashamed of themselves. This I awful brand image. I am so frustrated with BBC. I gave them a year before reviewing this app in hopes they would fix it. Clearly they haven't touched it. BBC have earned 1 star out of 5. You are a complete waste of time and space BBC.
