BBC releases dedicated iPlayer Radio tablet apps

iplayer_radio_500Two years or so ago the BBC took the decision to split their iPlayer into a separate app, now they’re  going one step further with dedicated apps for Android tablets, iPad and Kindle Fire.  With these larger screens in mind, which should make it easier to jump between stations, find archived shows and see when your favourite DJ is up next.

Designed especially for your tablet, the new BBC iPlayer Radio app is now available for you to try.

After listening to people using our existing app, we’ve built this all-new version from the ground up.

New features include:
– Improved live and on-demand listening, with easy-to-access playback controls throughout the app.
– More programme info on schedule pages, making it easier to pick something to listen to.
– Easy-to-navigate category pages, so you can find programmes to suit your mood.
– Improved visual designs mean it works in both portrait and landscape.
– Easier-to-find local radio stations.


The BBC iPlayer Radio app for tablet is work-in-progress.
Features still to come include:
– Saving things for later with Favourites.
– Music track listings for radio programmes.
– Adding tracks to BBC Playlister.
