    The latest version is noticeably faster but still lacks features like downloading or pinning channels/programmes. The programme quality is still terrible with pixilated playback on 4G and Wi-Fi which looks terrible on a 1080p screen!

    Poor. Poor. Poor. The BBC are too busy gushing over the latest iDevice to properly support a platform that continues to gain market share in this country. BBC: I suggest you pull your collective fingers out and release a serious version of this app like you do for Apple and Android. This is just a wrapper for the iPlayer on the web. Your Xbox 360 version of iPlayer sucks too BTW!

    Stuttering and useless half the time. With all the licence fees paid the BBC should do better. Netflix and other channels manage brilliant apps and watchability, why cant you?

    Generally OK, BBC has listened and has made improvements to make a functional app that had decent/good playback and has addressed the radio issue (I think). But we are still getting treated like second class citizens, no proper UI (it's a web wrapper) and no option to download content in SD or HD To get 5 stars BBC need to address these issues, but at least there's improvement.
