Known Issues:

- Some Samsung Galaxy users (using 4.1.2 Touchwiz) may find that audio playback does not work for them for live or on-demand programmes. A firmware fix has been deployed by Samsung but may take some time to be rolled out across all networks. Please check for software updates if you have problems using the app. Podcast and video playback should not be affected.
- On demand/catchup programmes from local and regional stations are not yet available
- Video clips are not currently available for Intel-based devices, such as the Motorola Razr-i, or Orange San Diego

    Try to replay "TODAY", only elapsed time displayed not chronological and no running order so cannot select items. Worse, it will not play anything. Still trying to use it: two stars is unrealistic, zero is accurate since the app simply is useless to me.

    On my Galaxy S4, it only gives live output. Trying to play recent output from the schedule displays 'not available on this device' where it worked fine on the regular iPlayer. This rather defeats the object of this app, so scored as RUBBISH.

    Good layout but only podcasts play. Missing most of my faverite shows as they won't play. Very poor show
