    BBC! What a rip off Apple company.

    4OD works fine. Demand 5 works fine. ITV Player works fine. BBC iPlayer? Rubbish.

    Great app, now need offline support and a Windows 8/10 app.

    It keeps buffering
  • by Trevor 03/03/2015
    Complete and utter garbage! None of the programmes play, in fact what I mean is the buffering is soooooo sloooooooooow that I can't be bothered to hang around for the programmes to start. Do not download this app, you will be disappointed! Why can't the BBC make one decent app, they bang on about how unique they are due to the way they're funded, but there's not one decent BBC app for WP! Very, very poor!

    Not working properly. Video hangs all the time while other streaming apps work OK

    Amazing now I can each top gear on the move.
  • by Barrett 02/03/2015
    Completely useless. It buffers ever 2 seconds, the android platform is so much better. I wanted to watch top gear that I missed last night, I actually had to pirate it so I could watch it. The illegal stream was easier than using this app. That is just pathetic

    This is a good app once it starts working properly, but sometimes when you are watching films the app just shuts down completely and you can't get back on it unless you restart your phone. Bit of a waste of time really.
