What's New in Version 2.2.1
This update contains a few bug fixes which you’ve let us know about, and some performance improvements which we hope increase your enjoyment of iPlayer Radio. Please keep your feedback coming in!
Some good functionality (that it's easy to take for granted these days), and some of my former frustrations are now getting fixed: the rewind/fast forward controls are now perfect, it always remembers where I got to on a programme and makes that programme easy to find.
I'm not a big fan of the horizontal slide bars to choose categories, because you can't see many options without a lot of faf.
Still, overall it's heading in the right direction.
Two of three core functions work
Can't complain about the listening feature and of course the extra info about the progs is good but the track listing does not work. It doesn't update very often and sometimes shows me tracks from the wrong station. When I close the app and come back the tracks have been updated correctly. Most frustrating to think I am listening to A only to be told it's B (when it isn't). Ps, needs an alarm!
The best app I have. Everything works perfectly. Not much more I could have asked for, well except for being able to use the alarm with your screen not having to be unlocked and on - that would be exceptional.
Thanks for your hard work, it's payed off.
