Official BBC Sport App Now Supports iPad & Android-Powered Tablets


The BBC has updated its official BBC Sport app, introducing support for the iPad and Android-powered tablets. The new release also makes usability and stability improvements, and allows those on Android to listen to live radio — including Premier League commentaries.

While BBC Sport ran on tablets before, users got a blown-up version of the smartphone app that wasn’t much of a joy to use on larger displays. Now, however, there’s a new user interface optimized screens measuring more than 7 inches diagonally.

Furthermore, those on Android (Ice Cream Sandwich and above) can now enjoy live BBC radio while they read the latest news — a feature iOS users have been enjoying for some time.

The BBC Sport app is free, and it’s available to download now from the Apple App Store, the Amazon Appstore and Google Play. It’s only available to those in the U.K. at the moment, but there is an international version coming in early 2014.
