Sad to see how Attenborough's aged as I grew up watching his documentaries. But what an app this is! It's got not just his more modern documentaries but his older ones as well from the seventies and eighties. I understand that the BBC licensing forbids the downloading of the clips so you can't really knock a star off for that, it's not David's fault! Easily five stars and one of the best apps for Android.
The BBC Natural History Unit in Bristol is acknowledged as the finest in the world. 10 minutes viewing of this,truly wonderful app, is all the proof you need. Attenborough's name is enough to bring respect and authenticity to any programme, this is no exception. No other tv network can do this, thanks to the BBC and it's place in British cultural life we have a legacy that continues to 'inform, educate and entertain'. Thank you!
I absolutely love this app, content-wise it is incredible, with some videos ranging back to 1956. The only real small complaint I have is the inability to use Chromecast with it!! I'm sure something will be done anyway, I would love to watch all this on the big screen.
This is a fantastic app regardless you have watched Planet Earth II or not. I downloaded this for sheer respect for Sir David Attenborough. But I got more in the bargain. I have the entire Planet Earth Blu-ray box set and waiting for last year's Planet Earth II Blu-ray release at a bargain price. This app has some of the choicest cuts/behind the scenes from PA II, and it's all well organised in this app. It's way better than the dated wildlife videos people keep posting on the social media.
It's easy to rate this app five stars purely because of Sir David Attenborough, but to top it off it's a great app in itself. The interface, quality, control and explore mechanisms are polished, and does an excellent job at conveying the wonder and sense of exploration so central to Attenborough's message. If I dare request a feature, it'd be for Chromecast support.
Really good idea from the BBC however lacks enough content to make your own collections worth making... would love it if the clips where longer than the meagre few minutes
