Customer Reviews

Please fix!

When the 'Listen Later' function was added many months ago, I soon got used to having it and found it really useful. Now, with a recent update the 'Listen Later' button/option has disappeared from any given radio programme. I'm using an iPhone 7. Please bring back the Listen Later option. The list is still there - but I'm unable to add anything to the list! Normally 5 stars, but this is irritating. Before, I used to scan through all my followed programmes once a week and add the latest episodes to my Listen Later list, now I'm back to checking each programme every time I use the app. Please fix ASAP.

Love the app but listings are in reverse

Review edited - issue fixed within a few days of it being raised, once again my favourite app!!

I've used this app for years and love it but the latest update has meant when sorting programs by 'most popular' it actually shows the least popular first and same when sorting by 'latest' it shows the oldest. Annoying as I have to scroll through hundreds of programs to find what I want!

Happy other than output options

I enjoy using the app and often use it on a daily basis to listen to Radio 1 podcasts which is great but the latest update causes some issues with output when I try to listen in my car, either via Bluetooth or through USB aux, which removes my phone volume option (didn't happen before) and sometimes won't play through car speakers
