The BBC launches dedicated iPlayer radio website and iOS app - Android users have to wait again

The BBC has launched a dedicated app and website for its radio programming, letting mobile users listened to live streamed radio or catch up on previous shows.

The BBC launches dedicated iPlayer radio website and iOS app - Android users have to wait again

The new iPlayer Radio website looks suitably tablet-friendly and Windows 8-like, and lets users browse stations, categories and schedules, and add their own favourites.

We found that the web stream lagged about half a second behind the radio transmission.

The BBC has also released an iPhone app, but once again has elected to make Android users to wait for a version to be released.

With Android enjoying a far bigger market share in the UK, it does seem rather strange why the BBC continues to put iOS versions of its apps ahead of Android.
