I often use the app when I drive alone long distances and use it along with Google Maps. The audio level coming from the two is way diffferent. I dont know how to set the voulume on my car set. Too high the bbc app sounds audioble the Google Maps will pierce through my ear drums. Too low the Google Maps sounds okay but I cant hear the radio on this app. I wish you can make your app sound louder. I dont have this problem with Spotify.

For BBC Radio streaming, on demand listening and podcasts I can't fault it, it had everything I want and is easy to use. Finding content is a doddle. It doesn't have an equalizer, but why should it? The only thing lacking is the ability to select streaming quality and to alter it between mobile data & Wi-Fi or music & spoken word downloads. Another review said it kept turning down his/her Bluetooth headphones' volume, but I've had no such problem.

It's a great app for turning your phone into a radio, and even has a sleep setting to shut it off after a set time. Unfortunately I had to remove it from my Note8 because it chose awkward moments to suddenly come alive, like in my pocket in a Quiet area, and half an hour into a road trip when I was listening to vital road directions from my Sat Nav app. On both occasions it wasn't showing in the active apps menu and I had to restart my phone to stop the noise. I miss not having it.
