For the Beeb die-hard's that listen to Radio One or any of the other variants in the iPlayer, and have an iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch or Android phone or tablets ... you're time has come in the best way. The BBC is launching dedicated, stand-alone apps that separate the iPlayer Radio from the iPlayer at large, and rolling them out for the iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Android platforms. You'll get access to all of the iPlayer and BBC Radio goods, which even includes related video and the ability to use the player on your browser, which means anyone with a computer can go ahead and use the service, no phone or tablet computer required.
It looks the app will only be available to UK users, there's no word on whether it will go live outside of the kingdom. This follows on the heels of the news that the BBC is making plans for streaming music service called Playlister, and will use platforms like Spotify and Deezer for licensing the music.
