Have you ever wished you could listen to Alan Partridge’s radio show for real? Now you can. Radio Alan – the official Alan Partridge app takes audio clips of Alan broadcasting ‘live’ on the radio and plays them interspersed with songs from your iTunes library. It creates the impression that you’re listening to Alan’s ACTUAL show live on North Norfolk Digital. Back of the net! As loyal Partridge fans will know, Alan’s radio segues often end with him introducing a song in his own inimitable style… “Keep your clubs away from his young, it’s Seal” The app will recognise if you have a (e.g.) Seal track in your iTunes library and play it in the right place. All the songs that Alan introduces are available to download from a “Partridge Playlist” within the app along with other Alan favourites. As a bonus feature, Alan will analyse your iTunes library and let you know what he thinks of your music taste. You can improve your score by downloading Alan-approved songs from the Partridge Playlist. The app comes preloaded with clips taken from Mid Morning Matters. Additional clips are available to download once you’ve heard all of these and further material will also be released in the future. Alan clips bundled with the app include introductions for the following songs: Wizzard - Any song Def Leppard - Any song The Simon Park Orchestra - Eye Level (Instrumental) The Commodores - Three Times a Lady Enya - Orinoco Flow Jamiroquai - Any song Alan clips in the in-app purchase pack include introductions for the following songs: The Vapors - Turning Japanese Susan Boyle - Amazing Grace Duran Duran - Any song Seal - Any song Michael Jackson - Any song Simply Red - Any song Elton John - Daniel Alison Moyet - Any song Visage - Fade to Grey Scritti Politti - Any song Terry Jacks - Seasons In The Sun Radio Alan: The Alan Partridge Player was conceived by Brighton-based app development studio Touch Fantastic and developed in collaboration with Baby Cow Productions and BBC Worldwide.

    Love Alan? Then you'll love this app. Very clever use and recognition of certain songs on your play list. One in-app purchase available so far for additional Alan content, but could use more as can get repetitive after a lot of use.

    Alan buried his dog at at 11. Grown ups wanted to help. I laughed until I cried. Absolutely brilliant.
  • Possibly the greatest app ever
