Restart current program from iOS
I would love to be able to restart the current program from iOS. It's been available on web for a long time, why isn't it being activated on device apps?
Brilliant, just brilliant !
So - for the second successive update within the space of a month - you've managed to completely scupper the 'pause during replay/resume where you left off' functionality !
Please re-fix the fix - and maybe this time include it in the main software upgrade rather than a 'hot fix/patch' that gets overwritten as appears to have happened this time ??
Sort out the downloading
The only thing that bothers me about this app is that you can't start downloading something, switch to another app and let it get on with it. It will only download whilst you are using the app. As soon as you switch to another, even if you've left the app open, it stops downloading. Grrrr
