Love this app. Use it every day multiple times. One thing I'd love to see is being able to listen to a broadcast that has been broadcast even sooner (if I could go the start of a broadcast that was already in progress that would be incredible!!). Sometimes hours have passed and it still says "sorry this episode is not available". A few hours later it then appears. Being able to download things while abroad would also be nice! I’d also like the boundaries between shows to be more precise when using catch up (when listening to the News Briefing I sometimes have to endure a minute or two of prayer of the day!! ). Other than that.. Love it! Really well done 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

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! :-(

Why can't I delete stations I will never listen to?


It's a good, if sometimes glitchy app - main glitch is it stops playing and then restarts 30secs or so later as others have said.

So, main issue, on relatively small iPhone screen, they insist that I should see every online station on the selection wheel.

I will never listen to CBeebies or radio. Cymru etc, I'm not three and I don't understand Welsh, I'm pleased they are available to those who want them, but why do we all have to have an interface cluttered with tiny icons - please, please can we be allowed to customise that main selection wheel.
