BBC Media Player for Android is an app designed to allow you to view BBC shows from the anywhere on your mobile device. While this app has lots of promise, it unfortunately has some severe functionality issues that stunt its growth.
It comes with Chromecast support. There is a lot of supported content on here for those needing their BBC fix.
The pink buffer / loading wheel seems to appear with quite the frequency. The app completely crashed once while in the middle of an episode of Dr. Who. Menu transitions are sluggish and the app doesn't perform very smoothly. There is a problem with the app not working on Samsung 5 or Lollipop devices.
