The BBC Radio apps for Windows Phone, by Igneous Software, have received an update that brings more functionality to the table. The apps themselves were recently updated to Mango two months ago so this is a welcomed refresh with taking advantage of more Mango-only features. Some of the included features are as follows:
- Reminder function for programmes later in the schedule
- Direct links to the selected BBC programme’s website
- Better checks for playback over GSM if the option to block is set
- Ability to pin the current station to the Start screen (BBC Radio Player only)
- Addition of 16 new World Service channels including Arabic, Russian and French (BBC Radio Player only)
You can download BBC Radio from the Marketplace for £0.99 ($1.29). Remember that there are four individual apps for each radio station, these are all included in the main app should you wish to listen to more than one station.
