From arts and drama to comedy and quizzes, the catalogue has enough content for everyone's taste.

We mentioned in our quick look at BBC Podcast Lounge that there was no functionality present to pin programmes to the home screen for more convenient access, this has been added for the v1.0 release. Check out our quick run through of the app in the below video.
