Radio Lounge

Igneous Software, the developer behind the collection of BBC Radio apps and Podcast Lounge is going through some rough times with the BBC. We've previously touched on how complications have arisen with the British corporation surrounding business licensing. This has led the developer to rename and alter apps available for Windows Phone to prevent the requirement for said solutions to be pulled.

We've now received further information detailing changes Igneous Software is required to make to its BBC Radio apps.

The team has announced plans to withdraw BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 3 and BBC Radio 4 apps from the Windows Phone Store. This is due to the apps not complying with BBC terms of business use. That's the bad news, but Igneous Software has managed to agree on a transition period to help minimise disruption for those who use the apps on a daily basis. Warnings will be displayed detailing the impending withdrawal.

Consumers will be redirected to Radio Lounge, formally known as BBC Radio Player (more on this shortly). This app sports access to the same BBC radio stations that are affected with the pulling of apps. When will the collection of radio apps be pulled from the Windows Phone Store? February 8th, this year.

Let's quickly touch on the Radio Lounge rebranding. Much like Podcast Lounge, the app will continue to be expanded and developed to provide a richer experience. The name change also opens up the ability to add more stations and really build up a catalogue of avalaible content. Should you already own BBC Radio Player, you'll not be required to make another purchase, it's just one update.

We're excited to see where Igneous takes both apps in the near and distant future. Two premium apps that offer unique functionality to bring a Windows Phone to life. You can download Radio Lounge and Podcast Lounge from the Windows Phone Store for £0.99 ($1.29).
