    With the general release of Alpha Papa only a day away, Partridge fans (us included) are in a state of frenzy but a new iPhone app might help, thanks to Alan's soothing tones.

    If you have you ever wished you could listen to Alan Partridge's radio show for real, BBC Worldwide's app for iOS almost has the answer, allowing listeners to hear their iTunes library interspersed with the wise words of Norfolk's finest.

    As every 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” or "Hide the steak, it's Chrissie Hynde," perhaps?

    The app will even 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, which we're sure many will do.

    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.

    The app is available from iTunes for 99p
