    New version no longer works. Choppy playback. Unwatchable. And no radio progs. Disappointed because it could be the best app. How do I get the old version back?!

    1 step forward 2 steps back. Playback of content doesn't even worth, the video is constantly stuttering, my connection is a perfectly adequate 50mb line. There is no offline downloading. There is not even a proper app, it is simply a web wrapper that doesn't even work. We pay our license fees, so we should NOT be treated like second class citizens, it is appalling. FIX UT BBC!

    If you don't sort this app out I'm gonna stop paying for my tv license, why can my partner use this app on i phone with no problems and my daughter use it on her Android phone with no problem but i can't use it with no problems on my windows phone, Microsoft now own Nokia and still have not sorted this problem out, I have no problems using bbc iPlayer on my laptop. Somebody needs to pull there finger out of there **** and do some work and sort this problem out or Microsoft will loose alot of money when people stop buying windows phones because they can't use the apps they want to properly. What a load of *****.

    Immediate Uninstall! The amount of lag is ridiculous. My WiFi is great and the phone can handle any resolution yet every other second it needs to buffer! Yet again another rubbish app on the Microsoft store.

    Nice app. Would love the ability to be able to download to my phone so I don't have to rely on sketchy 3G connections.

    This is one of the worst apps on the market, yet it's produced by the BBC, for goodness' sake. Absolute ****.
