Radio 4extra

Radio 4 extra would benefit from either its own app or a better interface within this app due to the nature of its content & how you have decided to present it. E.G when 15 min, afternoon, classic serial dramas or favourited, they are all grouped together with all the others. There should either be the one/s you have favourited in its own group and/or when i choose 'see all' from a particular programme it will show all of that prog not all on earth! I am aware you probably have it this way to enable listeners to find more programmes but i am put off going to these certain menus due to the search i have to do (i know its lazy but this is the world we now live in!)

Getting better

I've long been a fan of this app and I find with each upgrade it just gets better. The search function is still weaker than it could be; and this latest addition of "listen live" is welcome but it would be much better if there could just be a Home button available anywhere in the app you are, much like iPhone home button will always get you home. Too much clicking back, back, back... But I love this app.

Brilliant way to access the BBC's huge radio output

The only problem I regularly encounter is that my list of favourites (which I know is fairly large) is very slow to load. Also, I wish the maximum number of displayed favourites could be larger. The recent download quality/size settings are very welcome, I only wish the maximum volume of all shows was higher.
