The new upgraded radio player is not compatible with my kindle fire hd. The idiot programmers have stopped me from listening to radio ondemand. Why they have broken something that worked well is anybody's guess.

A fantastic stand alone app and well worth the down load if you love the radio. Between this and pocket casts I've got all my bases covered.

First they took away the favourite feature which seems bizarre and now it won't work at all. It requires an update which takes you to the Google play page. Fix this now. App is useless.

Have only recently tried to use the app and have not got on well with it. I have previously used and loved the joint app for tv and radio. It was easy to use, worked well and I could save my favourite shows in my 'favourites'.
I dislike being forced to download the radio app when I was quite happy with the previous one and then it lacks the feature of a 'Favourites' section so if for instance you are looking for a comedy prog you have to trawl thru lots of titles and it takes time to load each time you scroll down. To make matters worse I had thought it would come with the ability to download any program (not just podcast) but that doesn't appear possible either. As consumers we should have the choice.

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.

Very disappointed.
