The BBC’s iPlayer Radio app is going global

[F]rom today, the BBC has begun rolling out its iPlayer Radio app internationally, making streaming on mobile devices that much easier. The app’s new audience can take advantage of the majority of features right off the bat. These include streaming live radio programs (duh), as well as archives of past broadcasts (as long as they’re within the 30-day catch-up window). Users can also check out the daily schedules, track lists DJs have played, as well as mixes, news clips, live performances and other curated highlights from across all the BBC’s stations. You can download podcasts to listen to offline, too, and the app even has a radio alarm clock feature. – Jamie Rigg, Engadget
