Now available from Google Play for smartphones and tablets, the iPlayer Radio app will shortly follow in the Amazon Appstore
The BBC first launched their iPlayer Radio application on iOS in late 2012. Essentially, a way to gorge yourselves on all the best BBC radio content national and local, as well as podcasts, in much the same vein as the main iPlayer app. Some 6 months on from that, the app today launches on Android for the first time, and will follow shortly in the Amazon Appstore as well.
In coming to Android, the iPlayer Radio app has been made available for tablets for the first time. The UI has also been tweaked to better suit the Android user, so while it retains the same general look and feel of the iOS version, there are platform specific changes. Additionally, the Android version will make use of the notification tray to allow an easy return to the app.
The BBC has acknowledged an issue with the app on the Galaxy S3, which it says it hopes to rectify soon. For more on this and the full run down on the Android app, hit the source link below.
