Despite significant upgrades, this app still has problems. I can now subscribe to podcasts, which is nice, but auto-download doesn't work. Also, the app doesn't work with Android Auto, so I can no longer listen in my car. That's a huge negative, since that's where I do most of my podcast/radio listening.

This app is very buggy. The forward and back buttons disappeared this week so I had to reinstall it. Despite subscribing to shows, often I find they haven't downloaded on WiFi which means when I get back home I have to manually download the shows. When I go to catch-up, I have to find LBC at the bottom of the list, surely it can't be too difficult to have favourite radio stations. I know Global don't have the BBC's budget, but BBC Sounds is a fantastic app. Hopefully this can be improved soon.

Dreadful app. Frequently fails to download programmes on catchup, and doesn't give you another opportunity, so you have to miss out.* Even fails when it gets to about 90%. Also, very poorly played out. Unfortunately, it's the only way to access some programmes, but seldom worth the effort. *This does seem a little better. Can't skip through downloaded catch-up recordings - had to listen to first half again, as it didn't remember where I had for to. Dear Developer, this is pretty basic stuff.
