Launched - The Economist Radio for iOS

Today we launched The Economist Radio app for iPhone and iPad.

The app uses SoundCloud to deliver a daily radio show covering world news, politics, culture, science, technology and more.  Customers can listen to the first story for free and then subscribe for a low monthly fee to get all stories - about 25 minutes of content.

Aimed at the commuter, this version of the app is streaming only, but will soon be updated to support offline playback.
