    Terrible app, has so much potential but just doesn't work. Have set to autoplay and download my episodes and it decides that autoplay means to skip next episode and play the 2nd one, many other issues as well, nothing intuitive about it, for the BBC to remove iPlayer radio and replace with this peace of junk I just don't understand, I've stuck with it expecting it be improved and made to actually work but it doesn't look like it ever will, I am going to uninstall as it's useless.

    I love that I can catch up with radio broadcasts that I have missed or saved when it fits into my day. I also like the option to \"rewind\" etc.

    Takes far too long to load live radio. 3 or 4 minutes is not good enough. Other radio apps are almost instantaneous. This is a fairly recent thing and a great disappointment

    The old iplayer radio was probably better, when you subscribed to a show it would tell you when new episodes were available, sounds doesn't do that. It tries hard to suggest things you might like but seems to fail to offer you the things you actually do want to hear. Its a shame really, I like BBC content but it's now harder to listen to.

    Did not like this app at first but the more i have used it the more I have come to like it from the Goons to podcast on seemingly every subject and music the list is huge. Five stars

    Been working great and still listening to all my shows but latest in My Sounds is no longer showing me the latest episodes to listen to. I now have to go and search for them manually
