    Simply doesn't work, at all - so isn't worth downloading. Not impressed so far!

    App looked fine and video loaded then started playing in slo-mo 2 seconds in.

    Absolutely appalling, cannot watch a thing as nothing loads correctly or if it does, takes hours. Seriously needs fixing.

    Why cant it just work?! I don't mind if it looks old I don't care if it may be hard to navigate but just play the videos!

    Disappointment used to be fab but now keeps freezing and playing in slow motion even when connected broadband. Very frustrating!

    Downloading this will make you never want to watch the BBC again

    The buffering has really ruined this app. The old iplayer was so much better
