Best App for BBC Radio

I love BBC Radio. My favorites are 7, 4, 3, and Nations. I'm looking for a really good app (iPhone/iPod touch) that will let me set over a dozen presets so I can surf with ease.

Any suggestions?

For presetting and then listening to various radio stations on the iPhone or iPad I use Snowtape.
It is, however, not exclusively for BBC.

Tune-in-Radio is a real cool app, also with recording capabilities, the mentioned snowtape is also great. Both apps are a solid benchmark for radio on the iphone ipod.

Thanks guys. I just realized that I have TuneIn Radio on my Nook Color, so I'm testing it right now. So far, so good. It's easy to navigate.

Question: can you organize the presets by genre?

You can search by genre in tuneIn, but i have not found a way to further organize the presets.

Thanks; I was afraid of that.

I wish someone would make a radio app that would allow you to organize your presets with folders and also allow you to display each station as an icon with 16 or more per page.

In this day of over 40,000 internet radio stations from around the world, having hundreds of presents is not unreasonable; in fact, it's a necessity.
