Ratings and Reviews
Annoying adverts and still no 12" ipad support
Nice update but this still needs work. I just watched 4 video articles in this new version, but I was forced to sit through THE SAME advert each time, in full, no skip available.
This just succeeded in persuading me that Bank of Scotland is not a company I wish to deal with in the future due to aggressive advertising, sitting through the ad once per session is more than enough, the next video I play should just play.
IPad support is also a MUST, turning a 12" ipad sideways in to portrait mode is just not practical especially when you have a keyboard case attached to it, try turning your laptop sideways on the train just to read the news.
Wind direction indicators
The app works well enough I especially like the ability to add various areas and the notification of possible rain within the next hour. The only downside is the wind direction indicators are reversed
The news app is certainly among the worst I’ve experienced, can only be viewed in portrait- iPad, reasonably user friendly gui, but an uninspiring app in general.
STV Player app IS the worst mainstream app available- riddled with irritating adverts that (as another user mentioned) repeat.
Developers, have a look at BBCiPlayer as an object lesson on what an app should be like and how it should work...
