Lots of problems

Having the new global player app that allows you to download shows is great, however it is full of bugs. There is often a connection error when trying to play downloaded shows requiring the app to be restarted. The forward and backwards 20secs button don’t work properly. The forward 20secs jumps forward about a minute and the backwards 20secs button moves it forward a few seconds so you can’t skip back without moving the slider. I’ve also found the sound quality of downloaded shows to be poor when compared to other radio apps. The biggest problem is the space it uses. I have been downloading the Chris Moyles show since the app arrived and it appears not to purge itself. I currently have 2 shows downloaded and the app takes up 7.39Gb!
This app needs to address the above issues, then it will be brilliant and get 5 stars.

Download Shows Means You Keep Data On Catch Up

I absolutely love this app. It automatically downloads your favourite shows across the Global empire of radio networks and it means I no longer run out of data trying to stream them from the three individual app I have. Easy to use too!

Improvement suggestion: I needs to remember where you left off from. I close the app and restart and show that sends the download back to the start which can be annoying. Great app though!

Global Player is the new format, the way we listen to music

I love Global Player, only one tweak I would suggest and love to see in the app, is on the music for... mood section would it be possible for a ‘’My Capital Remix’’ feature featuring all the biggest Capital hits remixed the sort of stuff you’d expect to hear on such shows as, Friday Night Capital Marvin Humes, The Capital Weekender with Ministry of Sound, Saturday Night Capital with JJ if you’d good add that it would be a dream come true guys please?
