Has anyone else any experience of the new BBC iplayer interface for radio. As you know, whilst TV has never been available for use here in Sweden, the radio service has always been OK. Recently you are asked if your want to go to their new interface for radio. If you accept, you get to an interface which, in my humble opinion, is no better than the excellent on that they already had. At least on my ipad, nothing then works because when I try to play a programme it tells me to use a WIFI connection as streaming via 3g is not currently allowed. However, I get the message when I am already using a WIFI connection.

It is indeed...the best SEK 7 I have ever spent on an app. Unfortunately it has one or two minor problems though. Sometimes it buffers and goes back to the beginning of the programme and then it doesn't allow fast forwarding. But in all other respects you are correct, it is great.
