Your feedback has been hugely helpful in creating this new app. So please keep it coming by email ( or via our Twitter account (@BBCiPlayerRadio).

Please note: We are aware of an issue when casting to Chromecast devices after around 30 minutes of playback. We are working closely with Google to rectify this.

What's New in Version 2.6.3

Essential maintenance and a few issues fixed along the way.

We are aware that some users are experiencing difficulties updating to the latest version of iPlayer Radio. We have worked closely with Apple on this matter and the advice is to make sure your iPhone/iPad is running the latest version of iOS.

If you are still experiencing difficulties please read our FAQ at or email us at stating the precise version of iOS you have installed.

If you are unsure which version of iOS you are running, open the Settings app and navigate to "General -> About" and then look for "Version".

Customer Reviews

What happened to the best app interface ever?

Functionality still great but you took an app with the coolest user interface ever & turned it back into fiddly little menus. Shame.

It works great

Everything's there and it's reliable. More downloadable programs would be good for poor broadband areas

Doesn't work since latest update
