BBC Launch iPhone specific page to listen to podcasts.


The BBC has now launched a special iPhone specific web page to allow you to browse and listen to all the BBC podcasts on your iPhone.

You can simply go to http://www.bbc.co.uk/podcasts on your iPhone now, the site will recognise that you are browsing from your iPhone and take you straight to the iPhone-formatted version of the page.

If you go the the link from a normal web browser on your computer you will be presented with the normal full version of the page. For those of you who want to see what the iPhone version looks like in your normal browser then go to http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/podcasts/directory/ip/#_welcome

I’ve just quickly tabbed through the directory and started streaming the Chris Moyles podcast, started instantly from within Safari as a “video”, basically the quicktime player.

If you’d like to listen to it on the journey to work/college/etc I’ve just tried turning my wifi connection off and it continues to play. If you start listening to it while you’re at home and give it enough time to cache the entire podcast (keep an eye on the white timebar, that’s showing you download progress you can continue to listen on the move.
