1.0 out of 5 stars The Bitter Truth. 8 April 2014
Verified Purchase
Not nearly as good as the previous radio iPlayer for the BBC. Why fix something that is not broken? A massive disappointment.

1.0 out of 5 stars Retrograde step 6 April 2014
Verified Purchase
Have only recently tried to use the app and have not got on well with it. I have previously used and loved the joint app for tv and radio. It was easy to use, worked well and I could save my favourite shows in my 'favourites'.
I dislike being forced to download the radio app when I was quite happy with the previous one and then it lacks the feature of a 'Favourites' section so if for instance you are looking for a comedy prog you have to trawl thru lots of titles and it takes time to load each time you scroll down. To make matters worse I had thought it would come with the ability to download any program (not just podcast) but that doesn't appear possible either. As consumers we should have the choice.

1.0 out of 5 stars complete waste of time 9 May 2014
Verified Purchase
I downloaded this app today but when I opened it I received a message telling me the app needed to be upgraded. This is the latest version on the Amazon app store so how can I upgrade it? Tapping on the upgrade icon within the app took me onto the google play website but the kindle fire HD8.9 does not allow use of this website to download apps! In it's current form the app is a complete waste of time and deserves no stars.

It keeps crashing every few minutes. Why change something that worked? Change is not always necessary when it's not necessary!
