What's New in Version 3.1.1
Thanks for letting us know that our last update didn't resolve the disappearing downloads issue for all users as we'd hoped.
We've done some further investigation and have made some more fixes for this release.
Hopefully you will be back to enjoying downloaded programmes without any more issues.
As always, please let us know any feedback - @bbciplayer
Why no 'WATCHED' option, or faves for upcoming series?
Use it every day - in the bath, en tote to work to catch up. I listen to a Lot of radio, and catch up on things I missed from ages back on 4extra etc. But it's not helpful listening to 10 mins of a show before you realise you've heard it before. Please introduce a 'tick' for items you've seen/heard to save time. Also, I'd like to pre-favourite items coming up listed in TV mags so I don't miss htem, not just save once the series has started. The search box isn't always great if you don't know the exact name of the show either. Please solve these essential features... and stop telling me downloads is Off - I know!
Great app, missing that last little touch
As others mention, this app is fantastic. It's one I use every day for my commute and the journeys fly by.
There is one thing that really grates on me every time though and that is when downloading. Sometimes I start a download and then get to the last few MB and have to leave the house to make my train. At this point I switch to my MiFi dongle but due to the inability to pause and resume downloads, occasionally it states download failed. Then I have to start the whole download again for the sake of a few meg. Why can't downloads pause and resume properly and why is there no option to do so manually.
I really love this, it's like my life 😂
I can watch eastenders, Waterloo road, outnumbered and other programmes that i enjoy! It's fab, always works and no adverts. You can download programmes onto your IPad/iPhone and watch them when you have no wifi, I have downloaded about 10 different things to watch when I go away as I'll have no wifi, very handy, especially if you are bored! Really recommend
