One of the best. Varied and global - helps make the world more accessible while in far away Australia. BUT- streaming is a problem - too many times it stalls and freezes. Signal strength is high, connection is fast but it still stalls approx every 30 seconds. Finally on a positive note, I loved sailing past the 'green' building when in Lyon last year.
Poor user-interface The first thing you see when the app launches is an empty black screen which you have to X out of before the stream launches. This makes the app worthless for use as a timed wake-up alarm which is why I downloaded it. Also the only option within the settings (cog) menu is to change language. Seems like an unfinished product. Would be 5 star purely for content.
Crashes at launch on Sony Xperia Z5 compact on Android Marshmallow and Lollipop A toast notification pops up saying "Network error occurred, application cannot initialize". Phone has a strong Internet connection and other apps work fine. Fix ASAP! Thanks
Unavailable in the USA. What good is a European perspective for Europeans only? This used to be my favorite channel for world news until the website started telling me it was unavailable in my country. Now the app says network error, can't initialize app. WTF.
Eng. The application disconnects and stop lot of times. It can't reconnet automatically. I should restart application manually. Most times a part of a tv program goes to loop and repeats continuously.
Galaxy s4 Improved performance and layout. Just keep going guys and try to add more topics; maybe you can add few sections like technology science arts. Thanks!
As always, thanks for your useful feedback and your help improving our app!
