Now that I'm retired, I'm home most of the time, unless I'm out (you know what I mean!). I listen to radio most of the time, usually Radio 4 but sometimes R3, occasionally R2 (and very occasionally Kane!).

I find it frustrating that it is necessary to find that day's newspaper radio listings or search for Radio 4/3/2 on my laptop to find the day's programmes so I know what is on or is coming up later.

The App store doesn't show anything BBC-related at all. What I would like to find would be an App which lists that day's programmes for the BBC Radio stations. At the moment it's easier to check recent transactions in my bank account than find out what's on the radio!

Ideas please?!

Thanks,

Lorimer

Your EPG on TV?

Does your Council Library Service provide e-magazines? Call in and ask. Mine does. I get loads of mags free. It saves many Welsh pounds. Radio Times lists BBC radio by day.

Do you subscribe to Virgin Media? If you do, their TV Anywhere iOS app lists all the BBC Radio stations. You can even listen through the app.

Jonah,

Good suggestion. I've downloaded their App, 'Virgin TV Guide' and it looks to be very well laid out indeed, but I can't find any reference to Radio...

Is this no good (saved as a favourite to use in, er, your favourite browser)?:

If you register, you can customise which stations you see, and which order you see them in.

Using the Guide tab scroll to Channel 901 and radio is there. You can scroll 'backwards' from Channel 101 so you don't have to go through channels 101-899.

Unfortunately there is no separate radio tab.

Great suggestions, but Neil's wins. I've had the BBC iPlayer Radio tucked away in a folder on my phone for ever – but never used it. It appears to be perfect, being well laid out and NO ADS!

Thanks for your help everyone...

Lorimer
