I'm from America and I like BBC radio. I finally found this app and I love it!

Always stop when but it still shows playing, or remain and finally off line. (The Internet is good)

Just a wonderful site with tons of listening options. The choice is yours.

This app holds the BBC stations better than any other app I've tried to date and, living in the country, I have poor internet speeds.

Seems to pick up the stations OK, but won't run in the background, which renders it fairly impractical (Dell Venue Pro 8)

The apps volume drops to un hearable if you switch out of it. Why have a radio app is you cant listen to music and do other things.
