    Oh god, the ads. So. Many. Ads. A minute and a half of ads every 10 minutes. This is ridiculous. Edit: so you have decided to put in EVEN MORE ads 10 ads in one ad break. What a joke.

    If the app decides you will be shown adverts then its full of bugs. The program stops after the adverts, the video just jumps about or a black screen. If your lucky some programs don't have any adverts (it is very random) then it works fine (I'm using chromecast).

    Could be better, but ok I have most recently been watching Taggart episodes from 80's and early 90's, some have been poorly applied, Flesh and Blood is an hour shorter than DVD release, Death Comes Softly has a bit where it automatically fast forwards through a scene like someone accidently pushed fast forward whilst streaming it on to the player and didn't think to fix it. And Violent Delights sound is very iffy.

    When watching a 45 minute programme with 3 ad breaks it returns back to the beginning after each ad. So we're 20 or so minutes in and after sitting through 10 ads it starts at the beginning again and you have to FF through to find your place. And this happens every ad break. Never seen anything like it!

    Every time I use it, it buffers and crashes. First you need to get through the ads. Funny how the ads never buffer but the programmes do. When it crashes and you restart prepare to go through the ads again I should point out I have a fast Internet connection and never have this problem with iplayer or any other streaming service

    This app is extremely frustrating. It constantly freezes when trying to watch on i pad. Tried to watch one of the many programmes that they advertise.

    Really poor quality of live tv playback. Constantly freezes/crashes and you have to restart and watch BOS adverts again. I have good internet and zero problems with BBC, ITV, Ch4, Ch5 players. Wish I could just use ITV player. Shocking it forces Scottish people to use STV.

    Dreadful app. Gave up watching the series I was trying to due to the unacceptable level of adverts every few minutes, which kept pausing to buffer. In future I shall stick to watching the BBC, who's content is better and who's catch up app is a pleasure to use by comparison. I would have given this app no stars, or a minus if it were possible.

    Terrible app!!! I'm getting fed up watching anything on the STV player as it keeps crashing or gets stuck in an ad break. Out of curiosity on I left it running and 5 mins later I gave up and had to reboot. It also gets stuck going from ad break back to the program. It's a shame as there are great shows on this platform but the techy problems are just too many and makes for a difficult viewing experience. I'm sure the niggles will get sorted and hence the reason for this review to help.

    Basic function is fine. Picture-in-picture implementation is even good. Biggest problem is, I suspect, to do with video compression: app is data-hungry and can't cope with anything less than an excellent connection without constantly buffering (even 4G has frequent buffering.) I can directly compare to watching live tennis on Amazon's app and STV consumed nearly 4 times as much data for a shorter match. Pity ITV got the Rugby World Cup rights with such poor implementation on their app.

    5 seconds of watching, followed by 15 seconds of buffering is not a viable viewing experience. I have no idea why this is such a terrible app, but, it is. FYI, I was watching on a secure high speed connection, with this being the only app running. Every other app runs fine, so, it's not me, it's you.

    Worst app I have ever downloaded. Main reason I got it was it was to watch live TV, every so often it would say Problem has occurred, pls close and relaunch. The problem is when I went back into programme I was watching it would only watch from very beginning with no option to fast forward. I gave up! I dont even think it should get 1 star but cannot post without pressing a star

    Jesus christ. The ammount of adverts is absurd. When you click on the show you get 3 minutes of adverts, fair enough. Then you skip into the show because you've already seen some of the show and then you have to watch another 3-4 minutes of adverts. You shouldn't have to watch 6 minutes of adverts before you get to watch your show. You wonder why people are illegally downloading shows and using dodgy apps. It's honestly because it's a more convenient and less time consuming way of watching TV

    Won't install on a NVidia Shield. Won't install on a Sony Android TV. Is available on the TV YouView Menu, but the TV needs a hard reset every day to get programmes to load, otherwise its just watching a spinning blue circle. The menu navigation is clunky - selection by 'greying down' an image is simply appalling - you simply can't see what episode of a programme is selected. Try a bright border highlight (why am I having to explain something so basic to the developers?) Just a dreadful, dreadful app - why can't you just have STV on the ITV Player?

    Hopeless. Why does it continually hang after ad breaks, you then have to restart app which means you have to suffer another ad before live coverage continues resulting in missed minuites. Not good when trying to watch live sport!!! The picture quality is also very poor, lack of proper colours. Before anyone says my brand is fine, as other apps work just fine.

    Worst player out there, there's no bar to help you skip through the episodes you are watching and the app crashes on me everything I'm watching a programme then I have no option but to watch it live and miss half the show or to back to the start and watch it all over again along with all the adverts. Got to right near the end of DOI and it crashed after having to rewatch from the start. Not happy at all please put a bar into the app so people can skip to where they left off.

    Problem 1: Too Manyyyy Advert while trying to watch any program. Please follow BBC iplayer. 1 to 3 ads are ok, not 21 to 28 ads for a 45 mins program. Example: try to watch "A Confession" Problem 2: Never seen buffering on BBC iplayer, Netflix or any other App. Your app constantly buffered now and then, even though I had a stable connection through out. Problem 3: After watching all those ads, if connection gets lots or simply prefer to watch later, had been forced to watch all the ads again.

    8 ads at a time. And if you skip forward in a programme, say because you don't want to watch the halftime discussion of a match, you get all the ads you would have seen. Other commercial channels handle this much, much better.

    STV, can ye not spend some of the revenue from the EIGHT adverts saturating each of the "way too many" ad breaks in each programme and IMPROVE the app. IF THAT WASN'T ANNOYING ENOUGH, when you are lumbered by these ad breaks the app stalls, stutters, goes on strike, does anything other than play even the ads or programmes, either taking you back to the start of the prog where you can't go to the point you last watched without more ads! CONGRATS, UNDOUBTEDLY WORST TV CATCHUP APP ON HERE!

    The worst player on the market. It doesn't remember your previously watched list half the time. When it does,it doesn't remember your place and restarts partly watched episodes from the start and makes you watch all the adverts again! sometimes to find your place you have to sit through 15 minutes of adverts then it loses signal. Abysmal!

    "Live" isn't actually the live broadcast. "TV guide" doesn't load at all. Privacy policy doesn't show so there's no way of knowing what you're signing up to (and there's no way to delete your account so make sure you give them fake info). Utterly worthless.

    Don't bother trying to watch live TV on this app. It'll time out every few minutes, and then you're forces to watch another long unskippable advert before you can start watching again. I watched the same BoS ad with Susan Calman 13 times before I gave up trying to watch the rugby..... The developers should hang their heads in shame.

    So so bad. I've spent hours trying to watch a show from start to finish. There's always a problem when the adverts at each part ends; the show never restarts and screen just freezes.

    App would be great if it wasnt for the fact that the ads wont always load meaning I cant watch a whole episode at one time or I need to keep watching ads from the beginning until it decides to play all of the ads without freezing.

    Very frustrating app with the ads. When you just need to rewind a bit or go forward to find out where you stopped it. Sometimes watch the same ads 4 times before can pinpoint where you left off.
