BBC podcasts for iPhone

Just days after the launch of the iPhone in the UK, the BBC has launched a bespoke podcast website for the iPhone and iPod Touch. The new service allows users to connect via wi-fi or EDGE whilst on the move, allowing access to audio without docking on a computer.

The service was produced by the Future Media & Technology team within BBC Audio & Music Interactive – and is the first product produced using the team's "10% Time", an internal programme designed to encourage innovation and new technology.

James Cridland, Head of FM&T, BBC Audio & Music Interactive, said, "It's our aim to ensure that the great range of BBC content is available on a wide range of devices, and this is the first step in making our podcasts easier to listen to on portable devices. We plan to fully support other wifi-enabled devices in the future."

Users of an iPhone or iPod Touch should visit to access the new service.
