BBC takes a big step backwards,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: BBC iPlayer Radio (App)
The other day, I launched the usual i-player app to listen to radio programmes. My Favourites list had been emptied and when I tried to access the radio section, I was told I needed to get the new radio app.
I can find no way to store Favourites on the new app. As I want to listen to a full series of a radio play, this means I have to do a new search to find the episodes each day. The 'more episodes' button is greyed out so I can't even find the next episode after listening to one without having to search again. This eats into the time I have free but then, to add insult to injury, the programmes don't play as well on this app. They get 'stuck' so the little circle of doom starts turning and keeps going for ages. For two days now, I've been trying to listen to a 15 minute programme and still not made it to the end. The slider bar doesn't work as well on this new app either. And finally, the screen is portrait not landscape like the old one.
