    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...

    Unfortunate step backwards...

    As most already appreciate, iPlayer was fantastic. Easy to search, use, download, enjoy. BBC sounds is not. Must be a reason we’re unaware of for the change as it certainly isn’t for the purpose of making the listening experience more enjoyable.

    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.

    Doesn’t work

    Sadly, it won’t work most of the time. Says it’s not working, try again over and over again. I loved iPlayer and I deleted it for the new sounds app. Please fix the glitches!!

    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.

    A flop on my iPhone

    I downloaded this app as the bbc radio iplayer is due to close in November 2020. I’ve found the iplayer app to be robust with no issues but the new BBC Sounds constantly (every few minutes) and suddenly crashes. Grrrrr!

    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.

    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
