BBC iPlayer for iPhone Launches

The BBC has launched iPlayer for the Apple iPhone. The iPad version has been available since earlier this year and has already seen around 1.5 million downloads. The latest update that launched today now adds universal support to the app so that it works on the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.

As with other BBC content, the app is free and allows those in the UK to catch up with a number of channels. The app has been designed to allow watching content over WiFi as well as 3G if desired.

Features include:

– Watch live TV
– Listen to live radio
– Watch on your TV using Apple AirPlay on iOS5
– Watch or listen over Wi-Fi and 3G networks
– Scroll through and find Featured and Most Popular programmes
– Add programmes to your favourites and have them ready and waiting when a new episode or series is available
– Browse through the schedule to find the programme you want

As well as providing the above listed features, the BBC also allows iOS 5 users to use Apple AirPlay to stream to an Apple TV.

The update is available now and can be downloaded via iTunes or on the App Store on the iPad/iPhone or iPod touch.
