    I have written an application for the iPhone to play BBC Radio 1 stream (could be modified to play other radio stations) but I cannot get it on the appstore because the BBC see it as a breach of copyright.

    So I am listening on iPhone, but until BBC sorts themselves out or lets developers write apps which make it possible to play radio on iPhone, you cant :/

    Go to the iTunes app store. Download the free app Fstream.

    Now go to the web site bbcstreams.com where you will find the URLs for the programs.

    Put the URL for the staions you want to listen to in Fstream and away you go.

    There is a version of Fstream also for Mac computers running OSX, just search on the web.

    I want an iPhone app to listen to BBC Radio, both live and on-demand if possible. The BBC's Canadian colleagues at CBC Radio have made a wonderful iPhone app for their radio stations. Maybe the BBC should make something similar.

    The BBC blocked an iPhone app called Rewat.ch which would have enabled the downloading of iPlayer content to your iPhone while connected wirelessly, and subsequent play-back for 7 days or however many days are left on the iPlayer site.

    Morons - this is exactly the killer app that I wanted to be able to enjoy in my lunch hour those programmes that are broadcast at times when I can't listen.

    If they didn't want someone else to release it, why not buy the rights to it and release it in their own name. Surely there is a deal to be done there with a developer that has already expended time and money developing the application.

    Alternatively, they should get their fingers out and get something released that will offer the same funtionality.

    They tell us they don't care how and where we watch and listen, only that we do so. Prove it.

    You can just head to the radio station website from your iPhone and hit the 'listen live' link. Easy.

    www.bbc.co.uk/radio1
    www.bbc.co.uk/1xtra
    www.bbc.co.uk/radio2
    etc..
