New Blackberry BBC iplayer app? When? February 17, 2010

Posted by mjpower4 in apps, Blackberry.

News from the BBC via twitter is that the BBC plans to release apps for BBC News, BBC Sports etc in addition to the stock iplayer app for the iphone and also for android and blackberry. However all they would say regarding the BB or android is that it would be later this year…… I must admit I am not holding my breath in anticipation and it is only likely to be a cut down limited app.

For iplayer programmes I currently use the iplayer downloader (ipdl) utility from po-ru website run by Paul Battley. This app is free and basically mimics the phone’s iplayer download app and will download anything on the iplayer site and is dead simple to use and there are no time delays or limits on the time to watch etc. This app is highly recommended and downloads the files as mp4 files which in my experience have all worked on my Bold 9700.

Try the desktop app here
