Customer Reviews

Excellent. Plus 2 requests.

Recent changes to app are really user friendly. 2 things are mystifyingly not. 1. Listening to multi episode drama would be so very much easier if the number of episodes was somewhere so you can see if you can listen to whole thing or if some episodes are not yet available. 2. 'See all' episodes are increasingly out of order and episode number does not show without further clicking. Could 1/3 2/3 etc be front loaded in listings ? Maybe I have not found these features ? Would make big difference and seems obvious user friendly way of listing ? Otherwise great app use it all the time. Thanks.

Great update but.....

I listen to the radio via this app several times a day and love being able to download programmes to listen to later. My only request would be around favourites and how the app shows them. It would be really helpful if the latest episode could be the one that comes up first when you view the episodes available in your favourites. If the series is numbered it's quite easy to work out the order to listen to them, but if it's not, it's not always clear which one is the most recent.

Best radio app!

I love this app and use it a lot. I had two queries which I raised via my review on here, not only did you listen but you resolved both of my queries! Now I can download a whole show - thank you! Even more importantly (to me) is I can now pause a programme and next time I open the app pick up exactly where I was - which didn't used to be the case, this is such an improvement, thanks again. I'd give more than 5 stars if I could!
