BBC launch iPlayer Radio website and iOS app
Today saw the BBC take the wraps off their new iPlayer Radio website and iOS app.
For the website:
- Stations takes me through to the network homepage for each station where I can see what is on live and listen live with a single click.
- Categories takes me through to the radio categories where I can browse for content.
- Schedule lets me go through to the full schedule, or the detailed page for the current and next programmes.
- Favourites lets me quickly find my favourite shows, a feature that we are looking to build out further over time to make this page more and more valuable for our users.
The key features of the iOS app include:
- A touchscreen dial that beautifully shows the breadth of our radio, allowing easy access to all 57 BBC radio stations and their live streams.
- An alarm clock to let you wake up to your favourite BBC Radio station.
- From programme pages you can enjoy catch-up content, video clips, access to our podcasts, and for music shows the details of the tracklist.
- You can set programmes alerts to tell you when specific favourite shows are on.
- You can favourite tracks and share them with friends via email and Twitter.
It will be available later today in the Apple App Store.
