BBC iPlayer Radio launches Tuesday for iOS users in the U.K.
outside the range of the BBC's local broadcasts, the app will initially be available only to those iOS users inside the U.K. Eventually, it is hoped that the BBC iPlayer Radio will be be available outside the United Kingdom.
Each one of the BBC's stations will get a home page and a swipe will enable you to reach special content. A unique scrolling wheel allows users to access certain stations quickly and intuitively. And an alarm can be set that will awaken you to your favorite BBC personality or radio show. While the the BBC iPlayer Radio app is currently available for iOS only, a version for Android is being worked on and shouldn't too long in coming.
So to recap, right now the BBC iPlayer Radio app isn't available to people who cannot receive the regular radio broadcasts and for now will only be found for iOS. As we said, hopefully that will change.
