BBC iPlayer iPad app out this week

Beeb Tweeter sings like a canary

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

The BBC's iPlayer app for the iPad will be out on Thursday, a Corporation apparatchik has Tweeted.

The message comes from one Geoff Marshall and it reads: "iPlayer App for iPad is being released this Thursday - 10th Feb. 3G connection is browse only. Browse+Playback requires Wi-Fi."

Geoff's profile describes the fellow as a "BBC worker" and an "improv comedy performer", so we hope it's with the former hat he's Tweeting, and not the latter.

BBC iPlayer on iPad

Who needs an app?

The joke, of course, is that iPlayer works well on the iPad even without an app. Just go to the 'big screen' iPlayer website in Safari, and create a desktop link to it, and since the page opens in a screen with the web browser bits masked, you have what is essentially an app anyway. ®
