The BBC iPlayer app is a piece of iOS software that has been eagerly anticipated. Up until the app's release, mobile users have had to make do with using the mobile version of the iPlayer web site to view streaming video from BBC television channels and listen to radio broadcasts. The app provides access to live broadcasts as well as programmes from the past week.
As had been hope, BBC iPlayer is a slick app that has been perfectly designed for the iPad. You can easily navigate through the available videos and programmes, using the Featured and Most Popular lists to home in on suggested viewing and listening. You can also browse through the schedule to check what you can look forward to in the near future.
With the latest version, you can now download your favourite programmes to your iOS device for offline viewing (within 30 days).
