BBC iPlayer iOS and Android Apps Get a Major Makeover Today

By Gerald Lynch on at

Following on from March's desktop overhaul and yesterday's WinPhone announcement, the BBC's iPlayer team now turns its attentions to its iOS and Android mobile apps, with updated versions rolling out today. New features include a revamped and curated Home screen, a more sensibly delineated Category view, subtitle support for downloaded shows and smoother switching between landscape and portrait orientations. Live TV rewind functionality is also teased for a future update. [BBC]
