  1. Webview Week, by James Cridland

    A few weeks ago I helped organise something called Webview Week for the UK Radioplayer. It's the second coder's event we've had at Radioplayer. The first was a day around what a mobile app might look like: UX and design specialists from across our partners in the radio industry came up with some unexpected and interesting ideas, which - in part - led to the success of the current Radioplayer app on Android, iPhone and Kindle Fire.

  2. Get involved!

    Radioplayer is all about making radio listening easier and more enjoyable. And if we work on this together, across our small industry, we’ll hopefully make it more consistent, too.

  3. Radioplayer on a radio - updated

    In November, at the annual Radio Festival in Manchester, we demonstrated a prototype 'concept radio' interface we've been working on. We now have a short video of the radio in action, which you can watch here.

  4. Is your station phone-friendly?

    We’re building Radioplayer apps for mobiles at the moment, and (as always) we’re drawing on the experience of the radio industry as we go. There are many single-station radio apps out there already, and a few that offer multiple stations too.

  6. Nearly one year old!

    It's nearly a year since Radioplayer launched in the UK, and we're in Barcelona, for the annual 'Radiodays' conference. We're doing a session about our first year, what it's taught us, where we've got to, and where we might be headed next.

  8. Radio - on your TV

    Although to some people it seems like a strange thing to do, official ‘RAJAR’ figures show that nearly 5% of all radio listening is done through a TV. At the moment, the main way people find radio on their TV is by scrolling down the huge list of channels in the electronic programme guide. Lurking right down the bottom, usually beyond Home Shopping, God, and Dating, are a few dozen radio stations.

    There have been several articles over the past few days about the strengths and problems of community radio.
