While there’s still no sign of an Android app for us iPlayer-loving Aussies, the Beeb is expanding its Android presence. It has had an Android news app since last year, and today it has launched a tablet-specific version.
The app includes access to video stories, social networking sharing features and the ability to listen to BBC World Service radio broadcasts. You can customise the screen to include your favourite story categories, and also alter on-screen text size. The app is a free download from the Android Market, requires Android 3.0 or later.
