Seemingly out of nowhere, the BBC has just announced that the iPad app will be coming this week as well as an unannounced Android app.
Not every Android device will work with the BBC iPlayer app - you'll need version 2.2 of the operating system and Flash 10.1 installed on your device to access the service. You'll be able to browse shows when operating on 3G, but you'll need to be connected to a Wi-Fi network to watch anything.
The iPad app, along with a subscription plan, is expected to hit the US in June and there's no reason to expect any different from the Android app. If this keeps up, we'll have a full mobile device rollout once the iPlayer makes it to America.
