The BBC has updated its iPlayer Radio app for Android with support for the Playlister feature.

Quad-core CPU, 4.5-inch 720p display, 1GB of RAM, 5-megapixel camera
A day before we're expecting to get the official word on the Moto G, it seems one German retailer has already spilled the beans on Motorola's upcoming entry-level version of the Moto X. The Phone House briefly had the Moto G listed along with specs, which reportedly include a 1.2GHz quad-core CPU, 1GB of RAM, a 4.5-inch 720p LCD display and a 5-megapixel camera. Other notables include HSPA+ data connectivity (no word on LTE), 8GB of internal storage and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera.
If accurate, we're looking at a cut-down version of the Moto X, a possibility that's been reinforced by a couple of recent leaks pointing to a £135-150 UK SIM-free price point.
We'll be live in London tomorrow morning to bring you full coverage of the Moto G announcement, so stay tuned.
