Customer Reviews

Was Frustrated!

* a month later my listen later function has magically reappeared, so I’m very happy :-)

I love this app, I use it every day and have done for two years with no issues, until two weeks ago when my listen later list became unavailable for no reason. I’ve tried deleting and downloading the app again, updated my phone and done the new app update, still no joy, emailed feedback, nothing. This is very frustrating!! Now I have to scroll back to three weeks previous to remember shows I want to listen to. Bring back my listen later! :-(

Pointless login

So now I keep having to login and I can't see any reason for it......
When I move between different IOS devices they have no idea that I "Listen Later" on each other.
Makes keeping up with The Archers tricky when I've been away for a few days.
Occasionally it responds server problem or something similar and I can't use the app at all☹️
Come on, give us something worth logging in for!

The award for most improved app goes to...

Really happy this app is being updated regularly. Huge improvements recently, keep up the good work!

Edit: The improvements keep coming! Love that you can jump backwards and forwards from the lock screen now.
