why can I not make the BBC Radio app work on my iphone 4. It did work well for some months but now even when I have full strength signal on 3g via ee it simply hunts and will not start. Thanks Roger


(Just to be clear, this is the BBC Radio app, right? If your problem is the BBC News app, I may have a different suggestion.)

Do you have the latest version of the app? It appears that BBC Radio just updated the app a week ago on 31July2014 (Version 1.5.3), but it requires iOS 6.0 or later and is optimized for iPhone 5. I see you have an iPhone 4.

Do you have iOS 6 on your phone? And do you have the latest version of the app?

iOS 6 is supposedly completely compatible with iPhone 4s, and it is also supposedly compatible with iPhone 4 except iOS 6 on:
  • iPhone 4, does not support:
    • Siri
    • Maps flyover
    • Turn-by-turn navigation
    • FaceTime on 3G
    • Hearing aid support
So, it seems to me that this app should still work on your phone, unless you don't have the proper operating system or you haven't upgraded to the new version.

(the info below is copied and pasted for your viewing)
What's New in Version 1.5.3 FIXED - problem with automatically finding your local station
Please note that you can also choose any local station from the option beneath the dial after turning it to 'Find Local Radio'. You can even add up to 3 selected local stations to the dial using the Edit function.
Compatibility: Requires iOS 6.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5.
