What's new in this version (5.7.3):
- Minor bug fix
- Added 5Live Podcasts - This could only be done by launching the 5Live Podcasts website. For some reason the BBC don't have 5Live listings in the main Podcast listings file. (Thanks Timothy)
- Added 5Live Olympic Podcasts - This basically launches the main Podcast subscription URL from the Dashboard.
- Depreciated Browse By Genre
New release of BrowseCast HD is on the horizon.. Watch this space.
UPDATE: BrowseCast HD coming soon for ICS + Jelly Bean devices, also includes support for PocketCasts!
NOTE: This app is NOT an Podcast player!
BBC Radio Podcasts Browser with Listen Live (not all Android handsets are compatible). Also includes Radio Schedules for the entire range of BBC Radio stations (where mobile pages are available).
Easily search or browse (by Station or Genre) all available BBC Radio Podcasts. There are hundreds to choose from!
This application works alongside all the major podcasting subscribers and players, including; Pocket Casts, Google Listen (soon to be retired), BeyondPod, DoggCatcher and many others.
Why not follow @bbcbrowsecast on Twitter for updates and other news/information.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE:
-Launch BrowseCast (new podcast information is downloaded daily)
-Browse or search for a podcast
-View the podcast information and then send the Podcast subscription to your podcasting application of your choice
NOTE: If you attempt to add a podcast to Google Listen that you have already subscribed too, this application will force close. This is the fault of Google Listen and not this application! Please don't leave negative comments if this is what is happening to you. I have logged this issue with the Google Listen team.

Podcasts, Listen live and overseas use:
Listeners outside the UK may not be able to listen to BBC podcasts due to BBC licensing. This is down to how the BBC controls content and not this application.
Listen Live Stations:
Not all BBC stations are available for mobile devices. Namely;
- Radio 4 LW
- World Service
Listen Live will soon be depreciated as it no longer works on a large number of devices. For the best mobile Radio experience I'd recommend TuneIn Radio on Google Play.
This application is not affiliated with the BBC. The developer is not an employee of the BBC.

GOOD BUT WHY CAN'T I GET RADIO 4 LW OR RADIO 5LIVE EXTRA FOR THE CRICKET?
I love this app
Would be go five if it could play in background
Good app does what it says.
Can't get it to work, mainly log in problems.
Fab. Great way of finding all the BBC podcasts.
Downloaded for live streaming but doesn't work, uninstalled.
Great app basic gives you what it says

Brilliant. Finally I can get Archers omnibus on listen!
Only thing missing is the ability to work in the background.
