Customer Reviews

nearly great!

It's an app I use all the time and is very much appreciated, especially now the restarting bug has been fixed.

However, I can't understand why it's not possible to order downloaded programmes by expiry date (first to expire at the top) or even alphabetically. That, and being able to access the downloads from a button on the main screen, would make it a 5 star app.

Backward step

This was a great app and it still looks great. However, the latest upgrade has deleted all of my favourites so I have to define them as favourites again. This is possible for current programmes but I will not remember all of the old ones. Also, to resume a download means going to the Watching list instead of simply continuing from the same part of the app. Not great design but at least it works now I suppose.

Still crashes on startup August 19th update

Since last update not been able start this up.... Crashes on iPhone 6 + on iOS 9.4 after first startup screen.... Deleted restarted reinstalled to no avail.... Was working perfectly til update ----- PLEASE FIX IT because it's as useless as a jelly doorstop right now
