    It's a wrapper around the website. I do like the website but cant help wondering if a proper app would be alot nicer. Would like to pin stuff to start screen - channels, programs etc. Play back can be very choppy. Lumia 625. Is that a ram issue?

    Still no download function which has been on IOS for 18 months either. Considering they're supposed to be impartial the beeb sure does enjoy throwing all of their weight behind Apple products.

    Its very problematic. Video is unbearable with constant stopping and starting even on a high speed leased line over WiFi. I agree with Chloe, build a universal windows app.

    Does not work. Not even a bbc app. Anyway. Microsoft - stop allowing apps appearing to be official when they are a pathetic FAIL

    Oh dear, this was never the most sophisticated app but now it is worse than useless. The streaming goes to pot half way through programmes (no, it's not our broadband speed); is this the result of the super adaptive bit-rate?
