Excellently designed app from the BBC that ensures you never miss your favourite radio programmes
Platform: iPad, iPhone

Much like the BBC's standard iPlayer app BBC iPlayer Radio uses a similar layout to provide access to live and recorded radio broadcasts.
The catchup service enables users to listen to programmes broadcast over the last seven days and has been an extremely popular feature among users. When listening live you can keep track with what has been played, interact with shows and share content via your social networks.
Using the app is very easy and it utilises an on screen tuning wheel in the style of an old fashioned radio that enables you to easily navigate to your favourite stations.
Other handy functions include an alarm clock so you can wake up to your favorite radio show, and you can set reminders from the schedule so you dont miss anything you'd like to listen to.
Note that this app cannot be used outside the UK.
