Top Gear - News When opened, it just says "Unfortunately, Top Gear has stopped." I haven't been able to get the app to work at all.

Davy Morrison

Topgear -News It stoped everytime tryd to open will just shut and say report even keeps shutting down I uninstalled and installed about 3-4 times and its just doing the same thing thats why i've only gave u one star but if u fix this i will reinstall and give u 5 stars as i love cars and this was one of my best new app i've seen or had in a long time??? Please fix! Thanks.

Travis Copham

Good n bad News articles are enjoyable and easy to read but...none of the ads are loading..every article I read opens a no matching ad chrome page, also the vids do not work (bet it does on iOS!!! )

Ryan Alexander

Can't even open without crashing From what I can see from reviews it's been doing this for a few months now, I guess they can't be bothered to fix it. Seems like videos don't work also

Musawar Bhatti

Shuts down right away App doesn't even open, shuts down right away with an error. Fix it asap.

Chris Williams

Did not download as permisiins seem over intrusive. Why do you need to send emails and access personal data and calenders

A Google User

expectations v. reality Please provide: app2sd support, so we can move it. And a feature to let us filter news clips reviews etc like TG UK, USA, AU because I personally am not interested with what ever is from TG USA at all and I do believe there are plenty of people who don't. At the moment clips are a joke, I hope there will be improvements in that section. Until then: UNINSTALLED

Daniel smith

Terrible I love TG, hate this app!! So sluggish, sometimes things just dont load at all. Constant ads popping up...with the message no ad found! Such a frustration. All this combined with the fact none of the videos work, i dont know why i bother! Surely its not that difficult?!

A Google User

Battery and data killer This app needs a lot of work. Even on 4G, loading takes ages. And the pop up video ads are killing my data - I've used over 100mb this month, and I'll bet it's because of those ads. And when I've got the app open, I can literally watch my battery level drop. Seriously, fix it!

John White

Crap Used to be a good app but all it does is keep shutting down and it's been like this for months now is you can't sort it out take it off the app store you Muppets

Sean Reid

App is useless images don't load, videos just keep loading ads without actually playing the actual via your trying to view overall could be good if it actually worked properly

Darcy Campbell

Top Gear is the only good car show out there If you love Top Gear UK not the crappy American knock off this is an app you need and will want.

Tosin Salisu

Frustrating!!! The articles are quite nice but the app is so laggy and inconsistent it is appalling. Do something about it!

WC Chak

Keeps closing by itself! Disappointed! Can't even open the app and it closes by itself all the time. It was not like that in the past. TOP GEAR please do your job!

Jason Bone

Constant crashes on opening Never opens after the last update. All it does is open and then immediately crashes.. this used to be one of my favorite apps. But no longer.. fix and I might come back to the app

greg dennett

Crashes Used to be okay, except for adds and a bit slow, but since last update it simply doesnt work. I see many more comments the same so it isnt my device.. C'mon BBC, we expect so much more!

Neelesh Gupta

Need airbags! Love the show. Hate the app. Crashes like a drunken man behind wheels. Fix it please!

Layla Richardson

Error The app is ok as I can find out all the information I need about the latest cars however whenever I click on a video all it says is 'an error has occurred' :/

James Sandford

Please fix! The app used to be brilliant but now I keep getting the "no matching ad" issue. Please fix it!

Tom Hayes

Too many ads Samsung galaxy tab 2 Too many adds and none of the news or videos work. Thought that it would be better than it is

Chris Lawley

Sort it out BBC So, totally pants apps are what I pay my TV licence fee or, eh BBC? Won't even load before crashing. Uninstalling.

David appleton

Broken Videos and comments have never worked since the day I installed, do enjoy reading the articals but would be nice if the app wasn't broken

A Google User

Video adverts forced upon you Then after watching the stupid video advert, the app crashes. I want to like it but the relentless adverts ruin it for me.

J Mu

Update the Interface i love the updates, but the interface needs to be updated. Thats why I still use TopGear website than this app.

Darren Fitch

Get your boffins back on it Crashes every time i open crashed my phone and tablet many times sort it out bbc , you take enought of the tv licence money

Lakhveer Summon

Used to be ok When it did work after you clicked on a review etc a popup always occurred and it opened it in a chrome. Now the app doesn't even open, tries reinstalling still doesn't work

Liam Starkey

No good This app is ok for reading about certain things but when anything marginely entertaining crops up on the main page, theres nothing you can do about it. None of the links work on each page and the videos show me an advert & then take me back to the app. Maybe they could invest some TV license money into it rather than using that to give millionaires a million pound bonus!! And surely this pays to we dont have to watch adverts through the BBC. Clearly TV license IS going into the directors back pocket!!!!!!!!

Matt Waring

The 1990's called & would like their logo back... Up-date - this app hasn't been updated for over 2 years, that's all you need to know.. - Come on, design a logo that suits today's high end phones not last century's... Why does it say on articles "post show discussion" when no such content exists? App and content needs some serious work!

Timothy Chan

Slight problem The app is poorly design. Not what I expect with this channel.

Roger Farmer

Not worthy of even one star. App stops working almost immediately every time I have started it. S4 mini

Jake Goodrum

How?! I used to have this app on windows phone and it worked perfectly. How is it that on android it doesnt open.

Mike Burgat

Last app update 2013 really ? Simply started to crash upon startup on both my android devices a while back. Nothing was ever done for the app to work again. Pathetic support of a product, very top gear like "ambitious but rubbish".

A Google User

HTC One X Powwweeeerrrrr ! Need more power! Takes ages to refresh ! This is from BBC, wright? So why we have those adverts ??? Quality of the clips are absolute rubish Video 5/10 Audio 2/10 Whole app is a bit buggy, get stuck avery now and again Overall great idea , good design but still needs a lot of work Stop, loud and annoying adverts !!!

Marko Milacic

Heart broken Can't open app, as soon as it starts. it just shuts down and says can't open app...? Help?

Andy Rendell-Read

Top Gear News Some say this app works ok. All I know is it would not open so I hand to uninstall it. Not good.

Craig Hillier

Hasn't worked now for over a week Used to be good but no longer works....please fix

nathan umide

Very Very Poor The app just plain refuses to open. All I get when I try to open it is unfortunately top gear has stopped.

mark Merrilees

Free tickets please. I've watched you three long enough on TV. Since I can remember now I believe I deserve free tickets courtesy of the BBC. Do it

A Google User

junk it updated the first time, now I get a spinning circle and no updates. program stays in memory and turns phone into a pocket furnace if not manually closed

Andrew Keegan

Awfully designed app Good content but too many bugs, every article tries to load chrome with an ad that never appears and only the ads play in the videos.

Александр Т

Bugs I can't watch clips, I can't read articles. I see only bugs, different kinds of exceptions etc. Fix it please, I'll give you 5* :o) My tab - Nexus 7

Damian Johannessen

Fails to open I used to rate this 4 stars but recently it just tells me it's failed to open. I do always send a report when this happens, but as usual this is obviously being ignored! Will be uninstalling shortly if this isn't fixed - such as shame how poor the BBC apps are.

Ethan Grant

It dont work When I open it it says unfortunately top gear news has stopped I have reported when it says report or OK so please respond and fix and if you do fix I rate 5 stars.

David Meelind

Doesn't work. Looking at other reviews seems like the app developers can't even be bothered to respond. Uninstalled

Mel Harding

Worst app ever This app never has worked for me would rate 0 if could (I'm the biggest top gear fan ever)

Kev T

Won't open Everytime I try to open it shuts off so quick I can't read the error message. Please fix. Sony android

Ben B

Didn't work at all. Failed at launch. Don't even bother downloading

Jan Schalley

Unfortunately Top Gear has stopped working James, please manlab-fix the app? Or kindly ask the producers to? Android Jellybean here. Reinstalled app after 2 months of silence. After first try, immediately above error is shown again.

Ashley Mckean

Not even worth 1 start Just stops when i open it well dissapointed. Got abit excited when it downloaded and it just closes :( please fix

Mihai Popovici

Crash 2 seconds after opening , the app crashes on galaxy s4 mini. This did not happen in the past. Reinstalled it and still crashes. Someone at bbc made a mistake.

nathan nicholas

Almost unusable So slow and unresponsive I just never bother with it. Plus there's nowt good in there anyway?

Matthew Paton

Nexus 5 Sorry guys. Since the last update this crashes all the time. Simply will not load. Not good enough.

P Henry

Doesn't seem to work Seems like the feed is buggered up and causes errors on loading.

A Google User

Hidden ads in articles. Don't like stealth adverts hidden in the content. It's the BBC so why is it not ad free? Slow too, come on TG, you can do better than this! Desire HD

Alok N Krishnan

Pointless!.. Keeps crashing. This app is in neutral. Not top gear! Installed hoping i can read reviews and watch some test drive videos now that the TV show had been stopped. But the app is just a waste of space.. Keeps crashing even before it fully open. JC should have kicked the app developer also in the way out.

Robert Haycock

Why....... Its used to be a great app. I keep it in the hope it will work someday but it's starting to get so annoying that I stop watching the show also.

Mark Horkan

Too bad The greatest motoring show on television, also has the worst motoring app on the net. Never plays the video clips. Constantly trys to open empty web pages. And now to top it off has stopped working all together.

Crisma M

Crap It Installed. It launched. It crashed. Just like the new Top Gear team. Its crap.

Nick Kendall

Top gear app Rubbish! It was really slow then crashed my phone!

Chris Collins

Awful Videos dont work, ads dont load so constantly diverted to chrome amd often the wrong article loads. Hopeless, bet the ios version doesn't have these dreadful bugs!

Lovro Nobilo

Good App, Bad Design I love Top Gear, and in days like this with no new episodes to watch I like to read what the team is up to. However, the design of the app is ugly and should be updated to the Holo design language in order to reach its full potential.

Roberto De Carvalho

Not working on S4 I thought it was great and it worked well until recently when it just stopped working. I would open the app then 2 seconds later it would stop working
