Just last week, the BBC announced the release of the iPlayer Radio application for Android. This week, the broadcaster is showing iOS users a little bit of love. The BBC has released an update to the BBC iPlayer for iOS app.
The BBC promises that this version (version 2.0.4) is 'more like a TV' with live BBC programs easier to find on the iPad thanks to a special 'On Now' section right next to 'Most Popular.' There's also the addition of Scottish Gaelic programs on BBC Alba and Airplay is more accessible. On top of these new features comes a whole range of bug fixes that should make the app more stable for those already using the app.
The BBC launched iPlayer in 2007, but apps for iOS and Android didn't arrive for four more years. The first mobile apps launched in February of 2011. The BBC updated iPlayer for iOS in 2007 to bring support for Retina Display as well as improved video performance.
