Most valuable app I have

I've been using this since it basically launched in its old form, they've now completely redesigned it and made it much easier to use (once you've figured it all out) and also added the function of remembering where you were even if you fully close the app, or even turn off the phone.

Not to mention the ability to listen to shows 4 weeks after (and sometimes longer) than their original broadcast.

If I had to have just one app on my phone, it would be this one.

Really good!

Many brilliant new features:
A very neat large wheel control for playback, allowing scrolling by the second; much more sensitive and accurate than the old slider,
Download of programmes,
Play one programme with a pause and play button at the bottom of the screen while searching for others on any channel,
Menu button which offers several helpful options for navigating the app, including schedule, programme categories and channel switching
Version 2.0.1 completely corrects a bug in 2.0 with searching the schedule which always sent you back to Radio 1 after looking at programme details on any channel


Totally useless update. Worked fine before on my iPhone 5s, but since the latest update (26 July 2015) it will not load. I have the latest Apple ios, volume up etc, so the fault is not my end. Deleting the App until error is rectified. Currently this app merits half a star, however I don't have that as an option. I have previously never had a problem with this App, so I am beyond disappointed. From other reviews I can see this is not an isolated case. Please restore our listening pleasure.
