Since the iPhone 5’s release, developers have been working at full pelt to make their apps compatible with Apple’s latest smartphone. One of the latest apps to get an update for the device is the ever popular (in Britain) BBC iPlayer application, which now boasts full 16:9 widescreen viewing for TV catch-up.
“What’s New in Version 2.0.2
Huge thanks for all of your feedback on our last update. The team at BBC HQ have been busy preparing this shiny new release. We really hope that you like it.
– Support for iPhone 5 – a full screen of BBC iPlayer goodness and no more black bars!
– Watching programmes on the iPad has had a facelift. Check out what’s behind the “More” and “Live Channels” buttons.
– It’s already available on the iPad, and now you can plug your phone into your telly.
– Feedback on the BBC iPlayer downloads feature has been great. We’ve fixed a number of bugs to hopefully make it even better!”
However, although plenty of new features have been added to the app, those waiting on full AirPlay functionality will be waiting a little longer, but AirPlay mirroring is still available.
If you haven’t downloaded the app, get it for free here.
