So there you have it: the new Top Gear News app on your phone. And it’s completely free. Wonderful.
As Clarkson would say: it's rubbish
As the description says, you get the latest news. However, that is all you get. You have 4 tabs to choose from, and each only has 10 stories. The menus look absolutely dreadful on the new iPad. There is basically no content from the show itself, and once you've gone through the limited content that is included, there is nothing else to look forward to.
I love Top Gear. It's the greatest car show I've ever seen. This app is an abomination to the name of Top Gear. It's a mercifully small 33MB so there's no need to delete it, but I have no plans to use it unless they do a massive overhaul.
Good content if u can see it.
This is a good opportunity for those living out of uk to see bits & pieces of a great programme.
Pity then that it jams up from time to time; only way to unblock i found is to wait a day or so.
Pity also that some of the videos wont show on the ipad, despite an ipad ap. This problem seems to have a random occurrence, & manifests itself sometimes with a helpful explanatory message & other times by a siezure.
I find my ipad performs better on the web site than with the ap.
Please persist & fix!
This app, at first, was amazing. I live in the usa and its nice to know what is going on in the car world out there. But a couple of days ago my app started not to update to show the latest news. So i deleted the app and downloaded a new one but now it will only give me the 'show' section
