BBC has finally revealed it is going to launch the BBC iPlayer for Android and iPad tablets, though it will not be available for all the Android versions.
The app will launch on 11 February, and through it the users would be able to access the complete catalogue of program on BBC.
BBC has, however, said it would not be able to support all the Android versions, in fact only Android version 2.2 having Adobe Flash 10.1 will be supported by the app.
The iPhone users would be disappointed with it, as only iPad is supported. Videos streamed on Flash require the use of powerful processor, which limits the use of BBC iPlayer for several devices. The users would be able to consume both TV and radio media through the app.
The new version of the app is a significant improvement over the previous iPad version, says Daniel Danker. The emphasis is on creating simple apps that use the core competence of BBC well.
