As other reviewers have said, only works about half the time. No excuse when it's a companion app by the BBC to work in conjunction with other BBC apps to vote BBC content! Reliable access to video is a pretty basic expectation these days, even the need for a separate app for media is quite bizarre!
Hmmm... Eventhough my mobile now has the update of Nouget 7.0 I still can't download content on a Moto G4! What is the problem? We've complained about this for so long. Is anyone listening?
Videos hardly ever work on it, and the video playback should be built into the BBC news app, there's no excuses really. Avoid this app unless you like being annoyed or wasting time.
Sometimes video plays in the BBC News app just fine. Sometimes it directs video links to this pointless extra app that never works. How about you just do the former every time? #nobrainer
Have been greeted by "This content doesn't seem to be working. Please try again later." for such a long time, can't even remember the last time this application worked. Is there a point to this app?
This player works 2 out of 10 times. Pretty frustrating. I'm on an Android and I'm lucky if the video starts playing, most of the time it says "error please try again"
