Downloads Still Broken

I had hoped that the download problem I've been suffering with for the past few weeks would be fixed by this update by they are not. I have an iPhone running iOS 10.3.3 and I had been able to download to it fine in the past, but no more. Now, if I retry the download a couple of times it suddenly indicates the programme has been downloaded, even though it hasn't. I have plenty of disk space for any programme to download to.

This seems like a fundamental feature of the app, so it being broken is a glaring issue IMO.

Volume control and orientation bug

Volume control during playback is designed very poorly. The control line should be across the entire screen else it becomes hard to get the desired setting.

Also, when initiating playback in landscape orientation, it ignores which landscape side the device is on and always starts in the same landscape position. I would expect it to start in the correct position.

Feedback from iPhone 7. Please fix.

Can't download over 3G

It's really annoying. The app is absolutely perfect other than the fact that I can't download programs using my data. I don't have internet at home, so hope to download programs I've missed using data and watch them later. Please can you get this problem fixed, surely I'm not the only one that wants to use my data to download programs.
