Excellent app! Brilliant at downloading BBC Video content. Thanks for the development work! (Except - I could not get it to download any radio content. Am I being a bit thick? I went to preferences and selected radio also. But nada... - Anyone had any luck with radio?)

Was great but unfortunately hasn't worked at all for me now, for a few weeks. Developer's website also seems to be MIA - "Site not found"

Easy to use and a good interface. Works well 90% of the time but occasionally finds a programme it can't download. I've not had that problem with iPlayer Automator.

The downloads work great, even in HD. However they no longer play in iTunes or even get into iTunes. I can go Open, click on the .mp4 file and nothing. Used to work. The developer's webpage has this question in the troubleshooting section but the link goes no where. I'd really love to give them some money if I could watch these shows on my AppleTV. Any ideas?

Works so much better than iPlayer downloader or iPlayer grabber. Series link is also a big plus. Well done to this team!

Works nicely for me and so much quicker than the Beebs own iPlayer Desktop (which for various reasons I have to route through a VPN). Incidentally the latest version of Aunty Beebs app won't launch at all now and Adobe Air won't update either - Safari problem methinks!! GUI is a touch primitive but easy enough to use and nice that it saves in mp4 so I can stream straight to my TV via PS3 using PS3 Media Server (another great free app). So apart from maybe some GUI tweaks in future updates I can't think of any reason not to be chuffed to bits, especially since it's free.

Works for me!. This app does what it says on the tin. In the UK we pay a license fee hence the content is available for viewing up to a week online, but what this (free) app does is allow you to take that content and view when not connected to the net especially useful on an iOS device. The only other thing I'd like to have is the ability to receive the HD streams as opposed to SD although better than nothing would be on my wish list. Thanks to the developer for posting this a free app.

Just finished reading previous comments and visiting their website. My conclusions: - Site looks like it is just in its infancy as pages are missing, including support and some pages display HTML code and indexes ftp style. - There is a 'Store' tab which leads me to believe the products will not be free once they are fully developed - iPlayer is designed primarily for the UK media and the rest of the download tools seem oriented for the European market. - Did not examine the App that turns your screen into a 'flashlight' as do not own a portable device. However my gut feeling on this is that it is a awful waste of battery and pixel life except in very unusual circumstances or emergencies. Hopefully my comments will enable readers to make more informed decisions about this developers products before spending time to download and trying them out.

Version 2 crashes at start. Version 1.02 works just fine. I am running OS 10.6.8. Perhaps this should be looked at by the developer. I am only leaving this comment here because there is no obvious way to do it on their webpage.

Used to work for me well until last week. Now I only get "Initialising..." for a couple of minutes, then a crash. (Trying to download Radio 3 programmes)

Getting better each release. It does what is says it'll do - but the user interface? Like the other reviews ... The UI need some extra effort in layout and design.

Terrible interface, the instructions on the main screen to press the play button to add a program to the queue is just completely wrong. There's not really a proper list view, the queue is just a the series name with empty grey window under it. Looks really odd. Seems the coding's pretty poor too, upon trying to download an episode of Top Gear, the app crashed. Even with other shows, I've not been able to download anything successfully. It seems it's got a few handy features, just a shame nothing works...

Hmm.. the interface if pretty poor. The idea is pretty cool, you can set up series links, delay the downloads so your not tying up your connection but the interface really does let it down. I was left guessing what to do, most of the time I was randomly pressing buttons :) The one thing this does have going for it that iPlayer downloader and iPlayer grabber is that it's still working. These two stopped working a while ago. To the developer, sort out the interface and you are onto a real winner.

Shockingly bad interface. It's pretty comical - If you click any of the progress indicators in the queue before downloading the indicator fills to where you click it! Poor use of icons and bad layout too (for instance, two similar "reload" type icons - Bad idea). That said, it's currently downloading the whole series of Spiral without any bother, so despite the interface it seems to be working fine. It shows promise, so I really hope that the author continues work on it to make it more user-friendly and polished. There are some useful options in the Preferences section too. Alternatives like iPlayer Grabber and iPlayer Downloader are far more together in terms of their interfaces, but suffer the opposite issue in that very often they stop working after a while (BBC Website changes?) or only download some programmes. Ultimately, that's no use, so this app could well be the one I stick with. I'm assuming that due to the version, this is a very early release, and considered in that light the interface issues aren't a big deal.

Doesn't work. Tried to download several shows, failed every time. Beyond that the interface is clunky and over-designed.
