User reviews of BBC Sounds

  • By e.neruda

    At last..

    The BBC in all its splendour available in the US at last. A proper evolutionary leap from previous iterations of the having completed this gem, let’s get to work on the options for access to the tele as well...

  • By Captarne1

    Excellent audio entertainment

    I listen to the BBC every night when going to bed. I can’t miss “ I’m sorry I’ll read that again “,. During my time in the Merchant Marine the BBC world service was what we listened to at sea.

  • By SacredFig

    Good app with one feature request

    When you know that is user is an international user, please do not show them programs that are not available to international users. This just becomes frustrating.

  • By Me.Rj1

    Please don’t make us use this version

    Just not a good dashboard layout. The BBC iPlayer was near perfect why would you mess that up? Yes I’m old and cranky but this new app is just a train wreck. Look at the layout of the old iPlayer, copy and paste it to the new player and it will be a winner.

  • By C&TC

    I would give it 5 stars BUT

    Works great on iOS but doesn’t work at all well on CarPlay. Blank screen then stops playing, have to resort to running it on iPhone
