    Great interface but radio cuts out easily especially moving in and out of free WiFi zones. Frequent crashes accompanying cut outs

    Stop starts and stops for no reason. Would not recommend

    It was fine until recently and now all it does is open be Web browser and I can't close it. Terrible

    Works well, very good layout and lots of features. BBC catchup works but not all past programs are there and finding the program you want can be difficult.

    Without doubt the best UK radio steaming app on the Google Play store.

    ...but not quite. Would like to browse catch - up by channel e.g. look through R4 content

    I love this app but, for some reason when I tune a station and press screen off to put in my pocket the player closes after a few seconds. Never used to do that.
