Great app that has resurrected being able to watch iplayer on my great but old Dell Streak running Froyo. My only issue is that the aspect ratio is squeezed, it won't go 16.9, stuck on 4:3, even after adjusting the preference. Any advice to get it nice and wide? Thanks - AH, Tottenham, London
Very handy I love this app, I am now no longer bound to the living room to watch TV & can happily sit in the garden while watching my favourite shows. The play pause feature is a fantastic addition and I also love the TV guide but it's lost alignment is so far out by the time I'm at the bottom of the screen I'm 2 channels off. Edit: Thanks Dev
4g Ever since going over to 4g on 3 it will not load any programmes keeps saying to check my connection ? Works on some WiFi but not others. Used to work ok most of the time it also says trying to connect on 3g should there be an update to make it more 4g compatable ?
Why!!!??? Can you please tell me why the people who be insist on doing ' updates to improve the app' only to mess it up!! It worked fine, did the last up date... Now it works for 3-5 seconds then closes to the channel listings screen. Try using the theory, if it Ain't broke, don't fix it' & not ' if it ain't broke, fix it till it is'! I paid good money for this.
Awful app - truly terrible - waste of money. I have had this app installed for a long while now but have held off writing a review - until now. This app constantly freezes, it can be playing normally (when you get it to start) and all of a sudden it just goes back to the main screen, it just freezes in the middle of a program and will not do anything sometimes freezing the whole tablet, you have to kill the app to get it to restart and the constant freezing goes on and on. Use the other free apps out there, they are much better and work as they should do, the catchup tv app is better than this one and that isn't brilliant. I don't write many reviews but this one has now prompted me by freezing just once too often, I will be removing this app from my tablet tonight. To the developers - if you are going to charge a premium for an app please get it right first. Really disappointed.
Needs fixing Yet another prime example of an app the developer has lost interest in, shame was once one of the best and my five star rating and glowing write up reflected that but over past year or so lost channels never updates or refreshes and the ones that did work have now given up to such as bbc news channel realy kind of sucks. Thanks for giving up also not answering the five emails ive sent, you were quick enough to accept my money though..speaks volumes. Just read feedback from all the fed up users who like me paid good money.
