Radioplayer launches mobile app

Radioplayer, the partnership between BBC and commercial radio which has aimed to put UK radio in one place, has launched a new mobile app.

Available from Apple app store and shortly on Android phones via Google Play Store, the app has featured a ‘station scroller’ search engine, which gives access to both live and catch-up radio.

The app has also included features which allow the user to set up their favourite station, and browse radio that’s local or trending, and share via social media.

Tim Davie, director at BBC Audio and Music said: "The success of Radioplayer has proved the appeal of offering the whole of UK radio in one place. The app launch is a logical next step and is excellent news for listeners and the UK radio industry."

Andrew Harrison, chairman of Radioplayer also added: “This new app will help smartphone users to discover the depth and breadth of UK radio. Hundreds of stations are now just one mobile click away - another milestone in the industry's progress towards a multiplatform digital future.”
