Review from Brian Lambert
Problems resolved an excellent app This problem is now resolved. Just updated and no longer works on Galaxy Note. Worked fine last night. But now the rotating circle starts and then after a second or two it stops turning and the app locks. Tried uninstalling and installing again but still not working.
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.
This app doesn't work 80% of the time. It just says "this content doesn't seem to be working. Try again later..." For an app that has a single purpose of playing video, it's just frustrating and stupid. Terrible stuff from a company that's suposed to be strong in communication and media. Don't bother downloading.
Why can't this just be integrated with the BBC News app? I click a video in that app, tells me to install this media player app. Okay cool, sure.. whatever. However then after going back and clicking on the video I wanted to watch, it loads this media player app and says that the content can't even be played. The error message was meaningless to me. If you have an app to do one function, you should probably have it do that one function.
