BBC iPlayer for iPhone and iPad gets a fresh new look

29 May

The BBC has today pushed out a pretty major update for it’s iPhone and iPad iPlayer application that has a whole new look and feel to most areas of the app. The Home, Channel and Category pages now sport the hot new look, with the same three pages also now getting added, curated content by way of the editorial collections.

Folks who need subtitles are also well looked after with this latest update, with subtitled content now available to download to your device for offline viewing. Other areas of the app not mentioned above remain unchanged at this time, but the BBC is promising regular new feature rollouts going forward, with this in particular catching our eye:

New features like Live Rewind and continuous play being added in time. New functionality will also be added to make BBC iPlayer a more personal experience, with cross-platform playback and tailored recommendations planned.

Being able to pick up playback on one device where you ended on another is no doubt something more than a few folks will be wanting to see, so we’re definitely excited for what the future holds for iPlayer on mobile. The new update is live now in the App Store at the link below.
