BBC Podcast Lounge has been released on the Windows Phone Marketplace. Developed by Igneous Software, who are responsible for the BBC Radio apps, the app enables users to browse and listen to an array of podcast programmes available from the BBC. From arts and drama to comedy and quizzes, the catalogue has enough content for everyone's taste.
Some of the highlighted features:
- Background audio playback
- Familiar interface with panorama
- Search by programme title
- List by category or station
- Ability to select favourites
- Ability to pin programme to start
- Full integration with music + video hub
- Playback continues under lock screen
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.
You can download BBC Podcast Lounge from the Marketplace for free.

Rich, which app do you have pinned to your start screen to have the 'Oyster Balance' live tile displayed?
Use london Travel, but it can only display Oyster bal when you launch the app not on the live tile.
