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?
Why can't the BBC app have a built in app to play video, I feel it's stupid. I might shift to chrome if this continues. 🤓 I believe it use play video on items own before. It raises suspension.....🤑
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.
I dont really understand why i need this app... surely the BBC with all the license fee money is able to embed videos in a webpage??? And if you want to watch iplayer you have to download both the iplayer app and this app? Whyyyy? What a waste...
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
