What's New in Version 4.13.0
We’ve hunted down and disposed of various minor bugs (humanely, of course) to improve the app overall.
As ever, thanks for all the feedback and please keep it coming to @bbciplayer on Twitter or facebook.com/bbciplayer
It's a good app but a couple of annoying things. The subtitles used to be different colours for different people, but now they are all white, and it is very hard to know who says what. Also, in the downloads section, after you watch a programme, or just tap on it for more information, and then go back to the list, it automatically scrolls up to the top, which is very annoying, because most of the time the programme I want to watch isn't at the top. This was fixed a little while ago but it has come back. It's a little thing but it gets annoying when I mostly watch downloaded programmes.
Mostly it's a great app though, I use it a lot.
There's a few things that are really annoying on this app. One being that when I start to watch something on the app, the first 20 or so seconds the quality is quite blurry and the sound is muffled - which ruins the enjoyment of the programme some what. Also, when watching some programmes, half way through the clip the app skips till the end and won't allow you to watch the rest of the video.
Crashes every time
Almost perfect in every way except for keeping track of where you were in the program if you close it down for a while.
I'm getting a little bit tired of trying to find the programme I've just been watching
